Call for “Services to Develop a Content Series or Social Media Campaign on the United Nations’ Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) Articles at its 30th Anniversary”
UNICEF – United Nations Children’s Fund
Deadline: 14-May-2018 23:59
Description: UNICEF is seeking to hire an agency to develop and produce a content series or social media campaign which highlights the CRC articles through a modern lens of digital and social media, highlighting the fact that CRC articles are now entering their 30th anniversary while also articulating what each means from the eyes of a child.
The agency is expected to propose creative ideas as to how these articles could and should drive further traffic to the UNICEF website long term, in a similar way to the data showing that over 40,000 PDFs were downloaded in 2017 of the CRC articles. However, the creative can be broader than simply driving traffic to the website and can also contain ideas related to taking a social media action or driving the advocacy agenda online. Therefore, the agency can also present ideas and solutions for content approaches that could live on various UNICEF social media channels such as: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, or Instagram. Note UNICEF runs the global social media channels and not UNICEF USA or UNICEF Ghana, for instance. https://www.facebook.com/unicef is the link to our Facebook Page. Interactive experience ideas can also be presented, which encourage two-way conversation taking place online.
The content ideas should resonate with the user regardless of language. The content ideas should also provide value to the individual coming to the UNICEF website organically in terms of explaining exactly what each article means, particularly in the context of the social and digital media age but also as to how each article might have changed in meaning since the articles were first ratified by governments worldwide in the late 1980s.
The content package or creative idea(s) would be launched during the 30th anniversary commemoration by UNICEF in approximately Quarter one of 2019, along with live events and activities taking place across the world. Yet it’s imperative that the content lives on after the launch moments and become evergreen.
Finally, the social media marketing techniques and strategies should be considered when devising ideas for highlighting these articles. The target audience to engage with these content products is not just researchers, academics, and government policy officials; but also: youth (students), millennials, parents, and general social media users from ages 18 to 34 looking to become empowered with knowledge of children’s rights and how they should be protected. Our audience is global and the ideas put forth should reflect that. Ideally, through the website, an action should be proposed for the user to take to ensure a future visit to the site (email sign up action, for instance). A different action could also be considered for social channels- depending on the creative.
Recently, content marketing approaches for UNICEF’s social and digital channels have emphasized: influencers, user generated content, video storytelling, social media filters, stunts, social challenges, graphic design, and more. This is merely for inspiration purposes.
