request a project

5 things to consider before submitting a marketing request


1.
What goal are you to trying to accomplish with this project?
Ultimately, what action should your audience take? Do you want students to attend an event? Do you want them to learn more about a resource, new product or public service announcement?

2.
What is your time frame?
Please remember that any project will require time set aside for a marketing consultation, production process and approvals — plus potentially printing and mailing.

3.
Has this project been promoted before?
 If the answer is yes, was it successful? Why or why not? Is this project part of a larger UC, state or nationwide campaign?

4.
What materials do you already have?
Photos? Artwork? Text? Please refer to these materials when submitting your marketing request and provide them via digital attachment, or bring them to your marketing consultation.

5.
Who should be included in our discussion?
Please include all of the names of your meeting participants in your marketing request. It will speed up the process of scheduling your marketing consultation.
