Assessment Assessment task 1: Project (Group) Objective(s): This addresses subject learning objective(s):

1, 2, 3 and 4

Weight: 30%

Task: Examine the effectiveness of social media marketing efforts for the chosen brand Group Project

Task: Examine the effectiveness of social media marketing efforts for the chosen brand Group Project (30%):

Groups of students (4-6) participate in a project to explore the use of social media by a brand or company.

Completion of this task requires the group to provide a whitepaper. The length of the whitepaper should be upto a max of 12 page word document including references and diagrams, 12 point Times New Roman font, 1.5 line spacing. Page 1 of the whitepaper should be an infographic of your whitepaper for your chosen brand/company. Besides 12 pages of whitepaper, you can also include an additional title page with clearly indicated group member names and id. Table of contents is not required.

The suggested approach is:

  1. A project progress report is to be submitted online in week 6 during your tutorial time – this report should contain the names of the group members, the name of the brand (any global/Australian brand) and its major competitor, social media platform chosen for project and the type of data, amount of data collected and analysis conducted on the data. A form to fill out the progress report will be made available on UTS Canvas in week 5.
  2. Each group will follow the brand and its competitor on any one social media platform-Facebook OR Instagram OR LinkedIn. The group will track key social media metrics (related to the brand as well as its competitor) and conversations (for both the brand and its competitor) on the chosen social media platform. In addition, the groups can supplement their data from Google Trends (free access website tracking keyword search metrics; this is optional). All data should be collected in the same time frame i.e. past one year, and including the most recently available data. Each group will analyze their data and write a whitepaper based on their analysis.
  3. You are required to submit a softcopy of the whitepaper and data collected for the study in Week 11. More instructions on the project and e-submissions will be provided in class.
  4. Write a white paper from the perspective of a digital media consultant advising a brand/company on their digital media effectiveness. The white paper should address the following criteria:

a.) Present an infographic summarizing your entire whitepaper (5%)

b.) What is the brand doing well / not doing as well at & what is their competitor doing well/not so well (5%)

c.) Report your data analysis (5%)

d.) What are your findings based on your analysis? (5%)

e.) What would you recommend the brand/company do in the future to improve its digital media effectiveness(5%)

f.) The readability and format of the white paper & the convincingness of the communication (5%)

For the project, remember to consider the features and strengths/weaknesses of the social media and the suitability of brand/company you are representing.

The following resources will help with the group project:

– a sample of white paper format will be provided on UTS Canvas

– ensure you use social media data to strengthen your analyses.

-refer to reference texts, academic articles, company websites and other credible sources for reliable information

Length: The whitepaper can have a maximum length of a 12 page word document.

Due: Electronic submission of the group whitepaper, data in excel spreadsheets is due no later than 21st
