Assessment instructions
As part of this assessment, you need to first research the case study brand. You must also ensure that you develop a realistic digital marketing strategy, which follows the requirements outlined below. Please ensure that your digital marketing strategy considers and seamlessly integrates the brand, and leverages off of their current digital activity and traditional (offline) marketing and branding activities, if there are any. It must include one (1) Social Media Marketing Campaign.
This strategy is to be presented in a professional industry report format; key components of the plan’s structure are outlined below.
It is critical that your strategy draws on digital marketing theory and benchmarks against industry case studies (as discussed in MKT5325), and references both academic literature and industry sources.
DIGITAL MARKETING STRATEGY STRUCTURE
Cover page (professionally presented, i.e. Not ECU cover page)

It must include enough information that the main points from your Digital Marketing Strategy are understood without having to read the entire report.

Note: You do not need these as separate subheadings within your document.
Your Digital SWOT should identify gaps in the brand’s current digital marketing.

5.0 TARGET AUDIENCE
5.1 Demographics, Psychographics, Behavioural, and Geographic: What are the identifying characteristics of your target audience as a segment (a group)? Consider age group, gender, where they live, singles/families/couples etc. What motivates them generally and specifically in digital media interactions? What are their interests? What will appeal to them? How do they use digital media? Support with well-researched information. Identify 2 target audiences.
5.2 Persona Development: Based on the information you had outlined in section 5.1, use the persona overview template provided, and develop a persona for the ‘typical’ person whom represents each target audience for this brand.

Identify on the schedule the channels and tactics you would use for the SMM Campaign.
What is the proposed budget for the SMM campaign? This should align with your digital strategy and campaign schedule. You must substantiate your budget with well-researched information.

Explain how you will monitor, track and report on the success of the campaign. Which metrics will you use? These could be presented alongside the digital and social media marketing schedule.
9.0 CONCLUSION
A clear and concise conclusion, summarising the main points of the report should be provided. This is your last opportunity within your report to convince this brand that yours is the winning strategy.
10.0 REFERENCE LIST (not included in word count)

All references must be cited (in-text and in the Reference List) in APA format and references should only appear in the Reference List if they are cited in the body of the report.

11.0 APPENDICES (not included in word count)
Appendices are for materials that are relevant to your Strategy but which are too bulky or disrupt the flow in-text. Only include information as an Appendix if it adds value to your submission or provides necessary information to support your report claims.
Appendices must be presented in the order in which you use them in-text. This in turn means that you have to label Appendices in order – A, B, C, etc. Do not place anything in an Appendix unless you refer to it in-text.
