Observations from the challenge

Observations from the Challenge

  • Overall considered a success

  • Identify likely innovators and problem solvers first, analyze their habits, and tailor outreach efforts and messaging based on their attributes and interests.

  • Previously successful outreach tactics are not sufficient for new audiences.

  • Challenges may be low-cost, but building networks to reach solvers can be resource intensive.

  • A firm understanding of the agency’s communications policies, tools, and approval channels during campaign planning can help ensure timely and efficient execution.
