Marketing campaign planner canvas whitepaper
Our team are always looking for ways to streamline how we collaborate when delivering projects. I really enjoy watching how they work together and decided to take this energy into how we plan and develop our marketing campaigns.
The problems I find when planning campaigns is that they can quickly become quite complicated, not to mention the various tools we all use.
My challenge. I wanted to create a new way to create our campaign plans. I had to make sure it was simple to understand, was enjoyable to use and could be adopted by everyone.
I started by listing our own objectives and constrains. Then I researched online and found many templates with too many elements. I made a list of all possible elements and evaluated them on their importance. Removing all unimportant parts left me with 12 elements, which I wanted to layout in a way that make the template easy to use. I knew of Business Model Canvas tool from before and used it as an inspiration for the outline of MCPC.
When the first draft was ready – I test ran it with our team and some of my friends, reviewed the feedback, iterated it, and created the final canvas. We created the MCPC Whitepaper that contains the canvas, together with instructions and an example of how to use it. We now want to share the Canvas with everyone looking for a better way to plan their next marketing campaigns.
