RE:

Six-Month Project Plan & Budget - Search Engine Results Management

DATE:

5/20/14

Thank you for the opportunity to provide this proposal to design and
execute a comprehensive search engine results management strategy.
The following plan is based on our discussions to date and our
understanding of your primary goal: to achieve a reasonable balance of
positive natural search results on common terms concerning UC Davis
and Chancellor Katehi.
Our team discretely manages high profile digital communications
engagements for elected officials, educational institutions, recognized
brands and individuals. Because of our unique background and broad
range of digital skill sets, we are uniquely prepared to navigate your
current challenges.

PHASE 1 RESEARCH & STRATEGY (12 weeks)


In the first half of our engagement, we perform a battery of digital
assessments. We perform data analyses of your specific search results
challenges and opportunities. We identify key messages and themes to
we can use to counter negative results and help your team develop a
single voice across all digital channels. We evaluate your existing assets
and resources to enhance a more balanced set of search results.
Taken together, all of this information is a necessary foundation to
develop a detailed operational plan with achievable and measurable
goals.
SEARCH ANALYIS: We will study the nature of search results, both
positive and negative, using a variety of keyword analysis tools to fully
understand the scope of the challenge and potential opportunities. Using
this data, we will map out tactical options for positively affecting the
balance of search results.
SOCIAL MEDIA AUDIT: We will review existing social media strategies,
operations and performance metrics. We will look at popular content
types and messages, community growth and other key indicators that
can provide insight into the best way to increase your reach and
influence. And we will use our 7 Archetypes of Social Media

Engagement framework to develop a unique voice that will help your


communications stand out.
MESSAGE DEVELOPMENT: Just as negative search results revolve
around a single topic, your positive content items must focus on a select
few key messages in order to penetrate the organic results. Based on
your strategic priorities for the year, we will develop a comprehensive
messaging guide to maintain a consistent overall theme across all digital
communications.
RESOURCE INVENTORY: We will meet with key staff to understand
their technical and creative capabilities. And we will review all existing
content and multimedia assets, such as email, social share graphic and
video templates. We will also meet with other stakeholder groups,
possibly including university students, to identify challenges and
opportunities from their points of view.
OPERATIONAL PLAN: We will produce a 12-week execution plan that
combines the capabilities of both of our teams. Components of the plan
will include:

A clear process governing creation, review and approval of


original content

Descriptions of roles, responsibilities and publication


permissions for key staff chosen by the Chancellors office to
participate in the execution phase

Messaging guide including key topics of interest and areas to


avoid

A detailed content calendar to guide production and publication


across all digital channels, including detailed testing of
messages and channels

A measurement and analytics framework for gauging success


throughout the program

PHASE 2 EXECUTION & MEASUREMENT (12 weeks)


The second half of our engagement is all about execution and progress.
During this period, we will be in regular contact with leadership and staff
to ensure smooth operations. We will work in two-week sprints,
executing defined segments of the operational plan and spot-checking
analytics to confirm forward movement. At four-week intervals, we will
perform a deep analysis of the performance metrics and decide on course
corrections and plan adjustments as needed based on the results.

The specific actions taken during this phase will depend on the research
performed in Phase 1. However, our engagements typically include the
following:

Provide guidance on the production of all original content, such


as blog posts, columns, email blasts, videos and social media
posts

Produce social profile and share graphics, infographics, style


guides and other creative assets to support original content
production

Provide detailed technical direction to existing web


development staff to improve SEO performance and encourage
content sharing

Setup and configure new social media profiles, refine


configurations on existing profiles and establish integrations
between them to maximize SEO performance

Develop paid promotion and sponsored content outreach plans


across all social channels based on organic performance

Analyze performance metrics from all available data sources,


provide strategic and tactical options to key staff with clear,
understandable reports
