What’s Your Idea and What’s Your Plan?
This week, you will define your campaign and create a social media plan to execute your plan.
After doing your research from last week, what sort of campaign do you want to create to help your organization?
I want to carry out a public awareness drive in the form of a road show to help the Coca Cola company increase its visibility and popularity particularly in regions that are disproportionately marginalized.
What are you trying to accomplish? Is there a product you would like to sell? A political candidate you want to promote? A program that needs promoting? Why? Feel free to use verbiage from last week’s assignment/your goal.
The campaign aims at pushing sales of coca cola products particularly among the young population who lives in rural areas and primarily in high schools, colleges and universities. It campaign hopes to empower young people through the avenue of supporting education

During the campaign residents will be allowed to sample a variety of coca cola drinks including fanta, sprite, and coke, among others. Branded merchandise such as t-shirts, caps, hoodies, umbrellas, and water bottles, and will be given to the audience who will take part in the road show by answering trivial questions. The campaign shall employ the use of local artistes and other popular public figures that will attract the masses to the event. Notably, since the campaign is a road show, the event will take place in various stations. The team executing the plan will be a team of 20 individuals. The driver will make stops as directed by the coordinator and the emcee that will be making announcements as the bus makes it rounds. Additionally, there will be loud music played at interludes to create attention. Volunteers will assist in distribution of merchandise
