Team 3 (Shasha Brown, Justin Cerrillo, Cooper Mickelson, Carisa Rivera, Kyle Rudd) Document link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1LgMVVuTreXfNI3BrdEOBJt96fkXd_nwhQ-qxj0oxdu0/edit
So we have just turned in our rough draft and our hands are sweaty. We are pretty proud of the direction the project is taking and the way it is shaping up. To better our report however, we still need to sit down together and bring some unification to the piece. Scheduling conflicts have kept us completing most of our work from separate places, communicating through our Google Doc, email, and a group text message. This has allowed us to be productive, but in re-reading there are several different voices that pop up almost by-the-section of our document. We will all proofread each other for spelling, grammar, and to develop a better-informed sense of a unified voice to take the paper in. Then we will go through and read the paper all together to iron it out before presentation to the client. Subtle things like redundancy in the social media section (in relation to how to react to negative comments for example) end up getting repeated, because we weren’t super aware of everything our peers had written/were writing while we were writing.
30-something pages of black and white text, no matter how neatly organized, is also a drab drag to read that is laughably counterintuitive to our suggested social media approaches. We could use to beef up the visual examples of our ideas throughout the document, not only to enrich the reading experience, but also to get our ideas across more clearly and convincingly. We shouldn’t ask the client to visualize so much, especially if they are having to read over a dozen of these reports.
Justin has been our leading coordinator, and has a really good eye for what is missing in a section. He will lead our revision group, (us other members are very active but work best with a little direction and coordination, we’re sort of the “point me at it and I’ll go” types) through the fiery waters of editing. Cooper, who is currently focusing on writing our “future directions/thoughts” section will be responsible for trying to sprinkle in those ideas wherever possible throughout revision to spruce up the report. Cooper will also help Carisa and Shasha with generating analytics for the analytics section. Carisa and Shasha will focus tangentially on capturing examples of ICHF’s current social media posts for comparison. They will collect the good, the bad, and the ugly, and incorporate screenshots of these posts into their respective sections of the report, (Facebook posts in the Facebook part of the social media strategy etc). Kyle will revise for style and organization throughout the report, (with the help of Justin of course) and lead the content-production initiative. He will be collecting Instagram posts, snapchat mystory’s, tweets, and making vines for ICHF, centered around the #shareyourheart campaign to highlight its versatility and effectiveness. We will cover #donate’ing and #volunteer’ing, but once it’s been introduced, most of the post examples will be made with #shareyourheart in mind. This is a crucial part of our report, it gives the still-somewhat-sterile organization a bit of a voice, it shows that they are loving and care about people. It shows they observe and appreciate community, and they are happy posts to read.
Basically, we need to revise and sweeten. Thank you for reading, we are super excited to present for the client!
