Girl-Guides-Brand-AmbassadorChallenge: The Girl Guides®, Quebec Chapter knew they had a recognised, iconic brand recognised, a strong brand that had lost relevance to its target audience. They were more than cookies and camping.

 

 

Assessment

We discovered they had relevant programs, specifically leadership and science programs that would resonate with today’s young girls.The goal was to re-educate the target audience on the benefits of joining a non-competitive environment where a girl can learn leadership skills, develop friends for life and find her passion and at the same time boost annual membership. Analysis, discovery and creating a promotional plan that includes key messaging, creativity and timing is only part of the story. It is the implementation that also counts.

How we helped: Our area of support included developing a promotional program to promote and re-educate their targeted audience that Girl Guides is engaging, current and relevant with a stable dose of cookies and camping programs. We designed a year-long brand reputation program, which included a variety of press releases, inviting the media to critical events, establishing Brand Ambassadors who helped spread the word as well as attend critical events. We also promoted leadership and science programs through social media and a dedicated blog.

Campaign Time Frame: One Year
