DRN(Disaster Resilience Network) under its special Initiative projects launches a new development model called Comic Art Stories. This SIP- Special Initiative Project was born out of the need to provide to the general public and targeted audience tailored risk communication in disaster risk reduction and resilience building. The Comic Art Booklets Special Initiative will deliver real-time disaster events stories that are timely, relevant and accessible to be used as effective risk communication tools for Ghanaian citizens.
Reading and learning the comic stories will reduce our risk exposures and educate us about Early Warning Systems – EWS for Community disaster Preparedness, Prevention, Response, Relief and Recovery. The comic art series special Initiative will ensure a new paradigm shift through the art of comic stories adopting new pathways for national resilience. DRNGhana plans to evolve the comic art booklet series gradually into e-booklets, short skits, films and subsequently an online interactive mobile application.
Effective integrated campaigns use direct mail, email, and brochure/sell sheets (among other tactics) to drive prospects to a microsite where they can view product specifications or informational videos. Give users the tools to download PDFs, order online, contact your company for more information, or find a nearby retailer where they can purchase your products. Both traditional and online PR can be used in the same fashion. By publicizing the launch of the product where your target audience spends time online, you can drive valuable traffic and interested users to the microsite. Furthermore, PR can notify industry publications of your product, where you might garner a review.
Remember that the greatest feature of a microsite is its infinite “trackability.” You can measure the metrics that matter while gleaning valuable customer insight from user behavior data, search terms, and content engagement. The track, measure and analyze the data provided by your web analytics tools to determine how to maximize the results of your product launch.
