Write a report that critically evaluates the public relations campaign How well do you know fire?:

Identify the factors that have contributed to the success, or otherwise, of this campaign and present a critical evaluation of the message strategy used.

Below are a set of initial questions that will help you develop your report. For convenience, they are placed under four key areas for consideration.

1. Problem

  • What was the issue this campaign sought to address?

2. Target public

  • Who was the target public?

3. Communication

  • What forms of communication were used to reach the target public (media, technology and platforms)?

4. Strategy and tactics

  • What strategy and tactics were used?

5. Monitoring and evaluation

  • Based on your evaluation of the target public, the forms of communication used and the overall success of the campaign, was their choice of message strategy appropriate?
  • What is the best way of monitoring and measuring successful articulation/understanding of the message? Why do you think this is the best form of measurement?
  • What additional recommendations would you make?

Your decisions should be supported and justified by a combination of academic literature and evidence from other information sources.

Include a minimum of seven academic references (of which at least four must be from the unit material).

Please note, the seven academic sources must discuss public relations/communication.
