Multi-Faceted Campaign Strategy for National Industries for the Blind
The National Industries for the Blind (NIB) focuses their yearly marketing efforts through multiple long-standing campaigns targeting various facets—from mission-driven initiatives to SKILCRAFT product promotions—while also incorporating significant events like their 85th anniversary and National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
New Target Agency embarked on a comprehensive and dynamic marketing strategy tailored specifically for NIB. Our approach was multi-pronged, focusing on both rejuvenation and innovation in campaign development and execution. Each campaign was crafted to tell a compelling story, connecting with audiences on emotional, practical and informative levels. Every campaign was designed with clear, quantifiable objectives, allowing us to track progress and effectiveness in real-time. This data-centric approach ensured that we could quickly adapt and optimize campaigns for maximum impact. New Target’s solution for NIB was a blend of innovative marketing strategies, data-driven insights, and mission-aligned messaging, all aimed at propelling their marketing efforts to new heights.
The campaign strategy devised by New Target was multifaceted and targeted. We designed a series of interconnected campaigns that addressed various aspects of NIB’s goals – from raising awareness about their mission to promoting specific SKILCRAFT products. Each campaign was strategically scheduled to coincide with key dates and events, such as National Disability Employment Awareness Month and NIB’s 85th anniversary, to maximize impact and relevance. Our strategy employed a mix of digital and traditional media platforms, ensuring broad and effective outreach. We emphasized storytelling in our content, creating narratives that highlighted the successes and contributions of individuals with disabilities, thereby humanizing and strengthening the NIB brand.
