FREE feedback on your marketing materials for young people

From Curious Minds:

Many of you in Arts and Cultural venues and organisations have talked to us about how hard it can be to know if your marketing materials, your websites, your social media are hitting the right note with the young people you want to engage.

In year one of the Bridge programme we listened and promised to try and help, and we’re very excited to be working in partnership with nationally acclaimed charity “Young Advisors” to offer your organisation the opportunity to receive FREE feedback on your marketing materials from a  trained team of young advisors.

The Curious Young Advisors are a team of experienced peer to peer facilitators, who will work alongside a professional marketing expert.

They are intentionally selected as experts in peer facilitation rather than experts in the arts, which will enable them to give you the valuable perspective of a fresh outside eye.

Every organisation that completes and returns the attached form will get some personalised feedback from the Curious Young Advisors team.

In addition, four lucky organisations will also get the ‘Deep Dive’ treatment!  If selected, the Curious Young Advisors will facilitate two focus group sessions with their peer groups designed to look more closely at your marketing and communication materials.  One focus group will be with young people currently involved with your organisation to see how accurately your marketing reflects their experience of your work.  The second will be held with a group of young people local to you, that don’t currently choose to engage with you.  This feedback will be collated and given to you in a face to face session with the Curious Young Advisors who will help you come up with new ideas.

To get guaranteed personalised feedback on your marketing materials from the Curious Young Advisors, plus a chance to give your marketing materials the ‘Deep Dive’ treatment, please complete the attached form and return it to me by the 15th of September.  You will receive personalised feedback and be told whether you have been selected for the Deep Dive by the middle of October.
