Create a promotional campaign for ReStore, a Habitat for Humanity retail store (http://www.habitat.org/env/restores.aspx). Using a variety of promotional techniques, create a campaign for ReStore. Keep in mind that you have a very limited budget and are promoting a retail store associated with a nonprofit organization. Be sure to identify the key goals for the promotion:
- Target audience
- Methods that will be used
- Any ethical concerns that need to be addressed
Your presentation should meet the following requirements:
- Be a PowerPoint presentation of 12 slides
- Cite at least 3 resources other than the textbook
- Be formatted according to the APA Requirements
Include “voice over” in the notes section of the slides. The professor should be able to read what you would say during your presentation. The slides, therefore, can and should be very visual.
