MISSION

According to the Discovery World pamphlet, 13% of DW’s revenue comes from programs, 10% from memberships and the majority (41%) is gained from contributors. While admissions only makes for a mere 17% (less than ¼ of the total revenue).

PRESENTED BY

PULSE5

Despite Discovery World’s commitment to educational, cultural, and environmental development, their image often struggles to clearly convey this message. Their innovative exhibits and programs are designed to inspire exploration and creation, providing lifelong learning for their visitors, yet only a small portion of local residents attain awareness. Our mission in this campaign is to vastly increase awareness about what Discovery World confidently offers, and create the unique image of constant growth to obtain interest and attraction from the Milwaukee population. Inturn, showing Discovery World’s contribution in shaping Milwaukee’s future. As the world continually evolves, so does Discovery World as it seeks for constant growth through educational, cultural, and environmental development within the changing city.

RESEARCH COMPETITION ANALYSIS

Although Discovery World is not a children’s science museum, many consumers have a misconception of who Discovery World’s competitors are. Some of the competition includes: Betty Brinn, Milwaukee Art Museum(MAM), Milwaukee Public Zoo, and the Milwaukee Public Museum(MPM). There are many factors that make consumers believe these are Discovery World’s main competition; for instance, they are all located in a similar area. Betty Brinn also puts a strong emphasis in being a center for interactivity, which is something Discovery World prides themselves with, resulting in an identity confusion between the two. These locations are seen as competition because unlike Discovery World, these museums offer a change in exhibit, which gives people reasons to go

back. In addition, MAM, MPM and the zoo offers a free admission at least once a month for students who can provide college ID’s, whereas Discovery World does not offer such promotions. This kind of free access, builds a greater consumer awareness, which further builds support from this demographic. And lastly, since Discovery World does not identify itself as either a museum or a science center, it makes their public identity ambiguous to consumers. Zoos and museums all have a similar concept that offers consistency, regardless of where it’s located, but since Discovery World has neither of those, it makes consumers unaware of what to expect and why they should go.

SWOT ANALYSIS STRENGTHS

WEAKNESSES

OPPORTUNITIES

THREATS

Lots of sponsorship money – but only for setting up and maintenance of exhibits.

No brand recognition; lack of continuity with the logo and brand identity.

Expansion on exhibits and Dennis Sullivan through more promotions for group events.

Once people experience it, they love it.

Hours do not match their ideal consumer’s availabilities.

Summer Camps do not have enough promotion.

Divided internally: Not everyone in DW understands what they are, and what DW’s mission is and or where they envision themselves in 5 years.

Exhibits are geared towards kids, workshops for older demographics.

Milwaukee is slowly becoming a creative city.

Not getting ideal consumer in the door--> Trying to get college and adult demographics but instead attracting youth and families due to the lack of advertisement and awareness towards the college demographic.

Hosting/ Sponsoring MKE Film Festival could help create consumer awareness of the location of DW.

Betty Brinn is usually seen as a competitor because consumers view DW as Betty Brinn.

The lack of ‘feng shui’ - no clear atmospherics- there is no clear directions to consumers as to where to go next, which could be a good thing, so each individual can discover their own world. But at the same time, some consumers might prefer a more structured experience from Discovery World.

You can touch everything, unlike a museum. Many employees and staff inspired by Discovery World’s mission.

It’s the 30th anniversary! Time to celebrate the existence of DW!

Too much reliance on too few people (1 person in charge of marketing operations); Also lack of staff and lack of uniforms to let consumers know where to ask for help. Milwaukee is perceived as a laggard city, many citizens of MKE take that to heart. Lack of strategic marketing planmessages are inconsistent to audience. Sponsorships with Kohl’s adds to the internal conflict of Discovery World because it adds another identity.

AUDIENCE ANALYSIS STREET INTERVIEW FINDINGS

INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE GONE TO DISCOVERY WORLD

INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE NOT GONE TO DISCOVERY WORLD

For those who have been to Discovery World, most enjoyed their experience there, but nobody ever returned for a second time. However, many said that they would go back if they had somebody to go with, possibly for a “date” type of situation. Other reasons for returning included, the assumed belief that Discovery World changes their exhibits and bringing kids. Those who went had a fairly accurate interpretation of what Discovery World had to offer, and also said that the experience itself could have been geared a bit more toward college aged men and women by offering different exhibits or promoting their workshops more. Almost everybody believed that Discovery World is currently targeted towards children. A couple of people also stated that they would not be returning because they believed the management was poor and the front desk was uninformed about events that were occurring.

For those who hadn’t been to Discovery World, they were interested after viewing the website, however one person put it, he “would want a more clear description of what they offer” before he would be willing to spend the money to go. Another important factor for college students is the cost- one student clearly stated, “money is a huge factor, especially since I’m a student.” And there were few concerns relating to why students hadn’t visited Discovery World, for most transportation was not a barrier. The second group gathered from research are those who have heard of Discovery World, but have yet to go. Most have a preconception that Discovery is for children, and they did not have a complete idea as to what was available at Discovery World. As one participant said, “I never went to Discovery World- I just assumed it was for children from the advertisements for summer camps and I would feel out of place if I went.” Often

4

participants assumed Discovery World was merely an aquarium, but most had no clear indication of what Discovery World provides. Some also stated that the hours of operation were horrible, making it difficult or impossible for students to go during the weekdays from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. due to class. Participants were also interested in taking some of the classes offered at Discovery World, but quickly became skeptical when the pricing was given. Many expressed that they would be more interested in Discovery World if it offered something that involved the whole Milwaukee community, such as a block party or some type of social event geared toward high schools. Another possible idea was holding some type of college night or a night specifically for ages 21 or older. Perhaps such an event would provide some food samples and workshop booths, which would give a clearer conception of what Discovery World has to

offer. One of the last ideas that we found that might be useful was when somebody mentioned the idea of having a shuttle that could pick you up and take you to Discovery World for special events. Overall, there were a lot of similarities presented within all of the interviews and surveys. Many thought that the classes were too expensive and could be cheaper. A lot of what people knew about Discovery World revolved around the aquarium. Others just simply don’t have the time to go because of the poor hours, and also do not have the money/budget to afford going. From the research gathered, many said “Interactive learning” seems like a phrase associated towards children. However, when brought up in the interview, most seemed very interested in the beer making workshop. (For more specific research responses, refer to the questionnaires at the back of booklet)

SEE ANNEX A FOR QUESTIONNAIRE


AUDIENCE ANALYSIS (CON’T) FOCUS GROUP FINDINGS

A further in depth look at the life of college students showed that incoming freshman and underclassmen have little to no understanding or awareness of Discovery World. It seems as though as the years go on they begin to develop an awareness, but it takes a substantial amount of time living in the city before this comes to fruition. For the select few that had heard of the facility, the interpretation remained consistent with prior research stating that Discovery World was a children’s museum. One student even declared that she went as a child, and made the association that it was a children’s museum and didn’t return for that reason. Some students who had never heard of it suggested that the name itself brings thoughts of a museum and educational learning to their conscious. However, after

a brief explanation of what Discovery World offers, students almost always seem more intrigued and eager to make a visit or find out more information. These students also showed more interest in the aquarium and workshops, stating that if the exhibits don’t change, they have no reason to visit more than once. These students also shared the activities that they regularly partake in. It was clear to see a common theme in being active and outgoing. It was most notable that they have attended the Milwaukee Zoo and the museums around the city multiple times. They enjoy going back because there is always something new to look at and learn about. The other notable hang out these students shared was the Milwaukee Public Market.

RESEARCH CONCLUSIONS WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH MEAN

After fully analyzing the research, we learned that the most common response as to why college demographics do not go to Discovery World is due to the lack of awareness. One participant said after they viewed DW’s website and found out more about the workshops DW has to offer that they wished they had known about Discovery World sooner and would definitely want to go. Other factors include it’s too expensive, it’s a “kid’s museum” and the poor hours of operation make visiting difficult for students to go due to class-time restrictions. Those who went to Discovery World said they would never go again because there are no new exhibits that offer another reason for them to further explore, while those who never went said they don’t see an appeal in going because they aren’t aware of what Discovery World is.

6

NOTICE/DISCLAIMER

Although most of the research demonstrated students’ lack of interest in DW, students also offered insight as to what would attract them to go to DW. For instance, one student suggested that DW should offer an adult night or a college night where there are no kids, only older audiences with live music complimented by beer and food. Another thought DW could create a better image for themselves if they held a “block party” to bring local awareness by assisting underprivileged children and offering transportation, creating further awareness to the community. In short, special events would be the essential key to bringing our ideal demographic in. By way of silk-screened posters and free food, it would definitely appeal to the college demographic.

Although we’ve provided insightful research, there are still research gaps that need to be addressed and filled in before Discovery World carries through with our campaign plan. Because our campaign planning was restricted to 6 months, we had little time to go further in depth with the research, in order to fully implement our ideas and campaign. Therefore, the campaign proposal is only based upon what we’ve gathered which focuses primarily on prime prospect research, so we recommend that Discovery World should put forth efforts in gathering more creative development research to make sure it communicates most effectively.

2nd CONSUMER PROFILE

Mary Harvey is a 41-year-old mother of three: James (age 11), Mark (8) and Kate (3). She works as a high school English professor at Messmer Catholic High School. Mary tries to be the best mother she can be by closely monitoring what her kids watch on TV and limiting their video game time. Instead, she would rather have them drawing or painting and even helps James with his own writing, which he has started to enjoy. Although she often appears overprotective, at the end of the day, all she wishes for, as all parents do, is for her kids to succeed. She tries to expose them to as many opportunities as possible and will gladly pay the price, like Mark’s tutor, the occasional family vacation and Discovery World’s summer camps and weekend workshops. Mary knows that her

10

children will learn from the Discovery World workshops and hopefully gain some aspiration towards a specific eventual career path. Mary is continuously inspired by her children’s creative imaginations and admires their endless curiosity, which gives her motivation to stay actively writing for leisure and one of her favorite poetry websites: Allpoetry.com. Her husband Tim (43), an imaginative entrepreneur, owns a well-established AsianThai fusion restaurant on the East Side. On the weekends Tim and Mary try to make time for checking out the newest restaurants and hot spots in the city. On Sunday’s Mary and Tim enjoy taking the kids to the Oriental Theatre, Lake Park, Milwaukee County Zoo and Discovery World.

TACTICS DESIGN COMPETITION

What:

Who:

When:

Why:

A design competition to create a Bus Stop exterior and a poster for the Fish Fry & the Flick event held at Discovery World every summer for a chance to have the designs on public display around the city, and up to $100 in cash.

The local universities and their arts/design students. Universities include MIAD, Marquette, UWM, MATC and Concordia.

Competition starts in January and runs through the middle of March.

The university student, especially the art/ design student, is the market we want to engage. These individual’s believe they are creative, and this competition allows them to express their artistic inhibition.

Winner will be announced in May. The winning design will be on display throughout bus stop ads and bus stop exteriors running through June until July.

KEY FACTOR It must be a significant monetary prize to draw lots of interest. This is why we suggested the prize for this contest is $100 cash, in addition to Bus stop print ads and Bus exterior ads, and of course, an eternity of pride and bragging rights from winning.

12

It will also provide an inexpensive way to communicate with the community, and help promote Discovery World’s relevance. We are allowing three months for students to come up with innovative designs, just in time for the promotion of the Fish n’ Flicks events starting in June.

Why:

Reorganizing the current website to make it easier to read and less cluttered with photos and words.

We recommend hiring a well established web developer.

As soon as possible.

The original website has a lot of information for new consumers to absorb, which can appear overwhelming. The revised website should have a simple layout with few words to avoid distraction from the photos of Discovery World. Not only will this make it more visually appealing but easier to browse as well.

TACTICS EVENT LEGO BUILDING

What:

Who:

When:

Why:

There will be a miniture Lego version of Discovery World built by a professional lego builder artist. It will be 6 ft x 8 ft x 8 ft, located at Old World and 3rd Street in between State st. and Kilbourne.

This will attract those who think outside the box and challenge them to help finish this Lego project.

Since it will be an outdoor activity, this event will run during the month of July.

This event will spark interest in the Milwaukee community, but will specifically attract those of our target market, with its creative innovation.

To stay consistent with our campaign “Constant Growth”, this Lego model will remain unfinished. Next to the work a few boxes of legos will sit for visiters to “make their mark” on the piece. Through PR and social media, we hope to help bring buzz about this event without using promotional fliers or commercials. Because there are so many different Lego artists styles, the prices will vary depending on which artist is hired for the project.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The overall mission of this campaign is to increase awareness, obtain interest and gain attraction from the Milwaukee population. To achieve this we have created the unique brand image for Discovery World as “constantly grow” which will be shown in our various advertising campaign features. Discovery World prides itself on public ingenuity and innovation seeking constant growth through educational, cultural, and environmental development within the city of Milwaukee. After our research, we were able to identify the main problems of Discovery World: lack of a strong, clear brand image and a misdirected target market. We were then able to identify our primary demographic which ranges from 18-28 years old. These college-aged prime prospects are adventuring, creative technologist, who are fueled by new experiences and their passion for learning and applying new skill sets. Our primary targets are constantly growing and Discovery World can help them achieve this. With further research we hope Discovery World will consider using our proposed campaign ideas, which are designed to create more awareness to Milwaukee residents, but especially to the college aged demographic. Thus establishing a better atmosphere, fulfilling Discovery World’s mission of being an innovative center for learning in the wonderfully evolving city of Milwaukee.
