Consider the following information relative to your consulting engagement for Hoosier Media, Inc.
Currently Hoosier Media utilizes traditional media vehicles for marketing. This includes print advertising to solicit new and renewal newspaper subscriptions. Other marketing tactics currently used include regional television and radio advertising spots. Management has expressed interest in expanding its marketing reach through social media and mobile app technology but is unsure how to move forward in those areas.
Hoosier Media’s newsroom is in dire need of technological updates. All workstations currently have desktop computers; however, many employees have been requesting the ability to work from home as well as have access to company networks while on the road for business. Many of the younger employees would like to have access to iPads and would like to replace their desktop computer with lightweight laptop computers.
For the next phase of your consulting engagement, address the following in a 700- to 1,050-word paper:
- Propose marketing and information technology implementation tactics for Hoosier Media, Inc.
The paper should also reflect on how the company should communicate its strategic plan to key stakeholders by:
- Identifying the information that should be communicated.
- Defining the audience that should receive the communication.
- Identifying the channel(s) of communication.
In week two we were introduced to Hoosier with this:
“You work for a consulting firm whose primary objective is to help businesses improve their strategic operations. Your firm recently was hired by a newspaper company named Hoosier Media Inc. The client’s print newspaper circulation and subscriptions have declined, resulting in 30% lower revenues over the last five years. Online ad revenues have increased but currently account for just 5% of the company’s revenue. You have been tasked with providing a comprehensive internal and external analysis to help the firm improve its business operations.“
I have attached the paper written from that.
Then in week three we have to create a balanced score card for Hoosier.
I have also attached that.
Both of these can be used as resources for the paper.
