Video Content Development

This plan will capitalize on the existing flow of celebrity talent, capturing several series intended to fill social feeds, YouTube, and generally promote both brands. Below are several concepts to review as a starting place for developing impactful, high-quality video content.

Video Content Series #1 - Exclusive Artist Features
High-end artist features
Studio setting - High production value
Targeted interview
Goal-oriented content, designed to be split apart for socials

Video Content Series #2 - Conversations Series
Informal moments
Shot at Eli’s house
Can be used as YouTube content, and split apart for social reels
Production value that is consistent with brand
Would also include live rig rundowns and pre show interviews with major artists

Video Content Series #3 - “Ask Me Anything with Eli”
Questions submitted via YouTube
Informal, low production value
Entertaining because of general question base


Blog Development Series

A regular blog series acts similarly to a landing page by optimizing search engine results, and providing an alternate medium for engagement. A monthly series to start will help jumpstart this optimization without overwhelming our ability to produce content.
Possible topics include:
Company stories
Technical series featuring the team
Artist series



Photography Development - Two Rock + ÷13 at Home

Fresh product photos of both brands, with a focus on ÷13
Shoot at a high end residence and studio
Can be used across all media outlets

Roadmap Pricing and Rollout Options


Option 1 - Realignment of Resources
We realign the existing ad spend to complete the roadmap in sequence, with new content taking priority. This is a slower paced approach that reaches similar goals, on a longer timeline.
Benefits: No additional short term spending
Considerations: Foundational research takes a back seat, potentially limiting the reach of new content until completed. Project modules will be slower to roll out.

Option 2 - Boosted Approach
We front load the roadmap with the Social Media Foundations as a separate paid project, aiding the ability to effectively plan, and roll out newly created content to a more tightly defined audience.
Benefits: Understanding the audience by having a solid foundation in place will make ads more effective, and will grow and serve the community more efficiently. Ad spend can be better utilized as audiences are better defined.
Considerations: More upfront investment

Option 3 - Full Gas
This approach fully funds the Social Media Foundations program, quickly moves toward creating new content for both brands, establishes a monthly blog series, develops a full content calendar, and wraps in customer and community management systems. Additional project modules would be completed in sequence according to the roadmap.
Benefits: This approach moves the fastest by engaging teams to aggressively create content and flesh out and manage all social media systems. This approach will focus ad spend, maximize new content, and wrap all communities together for an overall better customer service experience.
Considerations: Higher upfront and ongoing spend.



Methodology


Powerful, personalized messaging and communication is the key to everything we do. From developing brands from scratch, to modernizing communications systems and strategies, our aim is to constantly provide clear lines of communication between consumer, product and company.
We also find that the best products are based on the actual needs and desires of the customer, engaging customers organically without resorting to traditional pressure or sales tactics. We believe a great product speaks for itself, and a great audience simply needs to be paired with that product for any company to succeed.

Why Us


The additional sales this investment will create will far exceed project fees.
Our phased approach addresses the pressing items now, and builds upon each step to provide an extremely comprehensive and valuable end product.
Hiring our team with this phased approach brings a wealth of expertise at a price that is far lower than hiring a full time employee or team.
We spend time with your team to ensure everyone understands and can use the information we provide.
I have closely worked alongside with my team, many of which a decade or more.
Clear explanations of our process, goals and deliverables as well as close communication and adherence to timelines builds trust, which is foundational to everything we do.
We do and source high quality data and research
