regional campaign overview
Regional Campaign Overview

The plan lays out a step-by-step template for regional campaigns, with eight key components, requiring:

  • Long term strategic effort of stakeholders
  • Aggressive media contact
  • Frequent repetition of consistent message

Step 1: Identifying key issues by regions/states

Step 2: Communicating strategically

Step 3: Identifying and preparing spokespersons

Step 4: Building a coalition of supporters

Step 5: Accessing and using campaign communication tools

Step 6: Engaging the media

Step 7: Tracking media coverage

Step 8: Evaluating progress

step 1 identifying key issues by region
Step 1: Identifying Key Issues by Region

Media campaigns succeed when the message is focused, clear and reaches the intended target audience. Because the pavement preservation message is multi-layered and can be somewhat complex, it is especially critical that the message is carefully considered for each region of the country.

The Spokesperson Talking Points(see PPP website) provide general, as well as more specific, key messages, some of which may resonate more strongly in certain areas.

step 2 communicating strategically
Step 2:Communicating Strategically
  • Give the issue a high profile by:
  • Releasing studies/reports
  • Introducing legislation related to pavement preservation.
step 3 identifying preparing spokespersons
Step 3:Identifying & Preparing Spokespersons
  • Campaign spokespersons should be:
  • Well versed in all aspects of the pavement preservation message
  • Familiar with all the campaign tools provided
  • Credible, prepared, accessible, effective communicators
step 4 coalition building identifying potential supporters
Step 4: Coalition BuildingIdentifying Potential Supporters
  • Campaign leaders in each region need to identify organizations that will readily join the pavement preservation campaign effort. Such as:
  • State chambers of commerce
  • State associations of manufacturers
  • State associations of small businesses
  • Other state business associations
  • State traffic safety associations
  • State associations of counties, townships, other municipalities
  • State law enforcement associations
  • State associations of trucking companies
  • State associations of insurance agencies
  • Car insurance associations (AAA)
step 5 accessing using campaign communication tools
Step 5: Accessing & Using Campaign Communication Tools

Regional campaign leaders and representatives will find campaign communication tools referenced in the Media Campaign Template on the campaign website, as well as the TSP•2 and NCPP websites. Accessible tools include:

  • News Release Templates
  • Media Fact Sheet
  • Spokesperson Talking Points
  • Campaign Brochure
  • Campaign Billboard
  • Opinion columns/ Letters to the Editor
  • Speech/PowerPoint Presentation
  • Video Clips
  • Construction Signage
step 6 engaging the media
Step 6: Engaging the Media
  • Strategies for gaining major media interest:
  • Introduce legislation that mandates pavement preservation policies in the state
  • Publish reports that grade the condition of major highways and bridges;
  • Release studies that project road and bridge funding shortfalls over the next 10 to 20 years and how pavement preservation can reverse such shortages.
  • Media relations goals:
  • Obtain editorial support
  • Generate news/feature articles
  • Respond to related news coverage
  • Create news opportunities
step 7 tracking media coverage
Step 7:Tracking Media Coverage

Media coverage of the pavement preservation issue, especially supportive editorials from across the country, is extremely valuable in advancing the pavement preservation message.

Each positive editorial serves as a media endorsement and can be used to increase additional public awareness through direct distribution to target audiences.

step 8 evaluating progress
Step 8:Evaluating Progress
  • Campaign Success Measures:
  • Increased adoption of pavement preservation policies in all levels of local government across the country
  • Public awareness surveys from year to year
  • Reduction in number of rebuilds/reconstruction of roads and bridges annually due to increasing usage of pavement preservation treatment.
