Competencies

In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competencies:

  • Manage elements of a sustainable global brand
  • Propose a method to market
  • Design a marketing strategy

Scenario

You are the regional marketing director of a theme park in the southeastern United States that is part of global brand. The chief marketing officer of global operations has called upon you to help coordinate the marketing tasks related to rolling out an emergency response to a recent safety and injury incident at one of the parks that resulted in serious injuries to employees and customers. This theme park was closed immediately following the incident to ensure safety measures for customers and employees and to deploy the needed safety measures.

Now, as the theme park is all set to reopen, the CMO has called you to take a lead in planning the marketing strategy to support the reopening of the park. Your responsibility is to design a phased strategy for reopening all parks, with critical objectives such as maximum safety, crisis communication, customer satisfaction, and profit potential. You must coordinate marketing strategy with corporate strategy, as failed or successful planning will impact brand success and recognition.

You have determined the scope of work and have outlined the high-level plan. As a first step, you decided to perform the brand analysis and identification of critical elements to successfully market the reopening of the park. Based on the outcomes, you developed a customizable marketing strategy template that can be used by other theme parks under the same umbrella.

Next, you need to create a presentation (toolkit) to share your analysis and recommendations for the proposed marketing support of the park. But, as you are working to complete the final bit of the toolkit, your social media monitoring partner shares a report of the theme park’s social media image and performance. The report shows a significant spike in negative public feedback. The report states there is the perception of an uncaring, careless brand forcing a reopening for profit. Your presentation should also include strategies for how you will address the emerging negative perception on social media about the theme park. You will show this presentation to your CMO and other regional marketing directors of the park.

Directions

Part One: Strategic Brand Implication and Management

Record and submit a narrated PowerPoint presentation to share your analysis and recommendations for the proposed marketing support of the park. Ensure you address any feedback received in Milestone One before you submit the final presentation.

Brand Analysis and Implications —In this part of the project, you will present the brand implications of reopening the park. Your presentation should include the following critical factors:

      • Employee support for reopening
    3. Provide negative implications (slide 3):
      • Social media negative reactions
      • Employee negative concerns
      • Operational concerns for safety

    • Consider which departments will be most engaged in the reopening process.

  3. Develop an internal communication plan that addresses the following (slides 11–12):
    1. How will you take feedback from the stakeholders?
    2. What could be the legal and ethical issues in reopening of the park? To understand the specific guidelines, refer to the memo from the legal team.

    2. How can we support our employees’ needs in reopening the park?
    3. What possible crises could arise relevant to the incident and reopening?
  6. Determine one legal and one ethical issue that could arise and negatively impact the organization’s brand image upon reopening and provide proactive steps that could be taken now to prevent them.

Part Three: Measuring Your Strategic Marketing Plan’s Success
