We are going to review how the pros at the New York Times use data and data visualization to supplement their storytelling. Visit the New York Times 2021 Year in Visual Stories and Graphics OR see the Additional materials column. (https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/12/29/us/2021-year-in-graphics.html)
Pick a story that interests you visually and topically to analyze.
Your analysis should include the following which will demonstrate your understanding of how research is gathered, aggregated and shared.
RESEARCH METHODS: Give a brief summary of the type of research they used for the story. Did they use qualitative, observational, quantitative? Use the terms we used to describe different types of studies. If it’s not readily available, you can surmise (I think that based on the data they used x method).
DATA VISUALS USED: Use the graph type terms found in your online cheat sheet. Impress me with your knowledge of a matteo vs line graph.
STORY HIGHLIGHT: Take a look at the infographic and give me 1-2 sentences that sum up that are showing.
GRADE THE PRO: What makes this visual so powerful or what could they do better to get their point across. Provide 2-3 sentences about how they visualized the data to make a better story.

Explain why readers would be interested in or could benefit from each story idea.

Your task
You are the public relations director for a pediatrician’s office. The doctor you work with is often called upon by local media to talk about children’s health issues.
Summer is coming up, and you’re proactively looking for some story ideas you could pitch to the Dallas Morning News.
For this discussion, identify FIVE newsworthy story topics that would suit your doctor’s expertise, coincide with the season and be relevant to readers of the Dallas Morning News. Explain why readers would be interested in or could benefit from each story idea. Give details! Do not provide ideas for special events or activities done by the doctor’s office. (For example, you wouldn’t propose a story about the doctor’s office providing free sunscreen samples.)
Remember, these stories must pertain to the summer months (June -mid August). Story ideas that can be considered year-round will not be accepted. You do not have to write these stories. I am interested solely in the story ideas and why they’re a good fit for that particular time period.

Listed below are the guidelines/instructions for introspection paper #2:

In March 2020, when we first started working, learning and socializing remotely due to the pandemic, I wrote an opinion column which was published by NJ.com and the Sunday Newark Star Ledger. Please read here: https://www.nj.com/opinion/2020/03/covid-19-will-speed-up-how-gen-z-transforms-the-world.html (Links to an external site.)
In the column, I wrote, “There is no better time than right now, in the midst of a global health crisis, for corporations to demonstrate their purpose.”
Shortly after, in an interview I conducted with AdWeek in response to the coronavirus, I was quoted saying, “We’re going to start seeing certain brands and media companies and others stepping up and taking a more purposeful approach and putting aside profits for the moment and prioritizing purpose.”
In another article in Forbes, I was quoted saying, “Consumers are looking for companies during the world health crisis that are prioritizing purpose over profits,” says Mark Beal, an assistant professor at Rutgers University — New Brunswick (Links to an external site.). “They want to see actions, marketing and messaging that are responsible, relevant, timely and purposeful. In other words, they want to see actions and messages from companies that communicate a higher purpose at this time and deliver a service or product that will benefit individuals, communities and the greater society.”
Raja Rajamannar, the Chief Marketing Officer of Mastercard recently stated that, “There are times when you want to sell. This is not a time when you want to sell. This is the time to serve.”
Today, following the arrival of the pandemic in 2020 and the Black Lives Matter awakening, companies and brands realize they must market with purpose now and in the future. We saw brands act purposefully in response to the war in Ukraine. In 2021, Ad Age published a 15-page article on this topic titled, Brands As Citizens, in which they quoted me and my research. I have attached the PDF to Week #8 in Canvas.
The Assignment: Please read the published 15-page Ad Age report, Brands as Citizens (I have placed a PDF copy in Week #8) and conduct additional research and review how companies and brands are responding from a marketing and messaging perspective in response to COVID-19, Black Lives Matter and other societal issues. How are they responding in a purposeful manner as per the excerpt from my interviews above and the Mastercard CMO quote?
Select just ONE brand that you believe is acting and marketing in a purposeful manner and detail exactly what they are doing in response to this health crisis. As you detail how they are marketing with purpose, elaborate how they are doing it via the PESO Model (Paid Media, Earned Media, Shared Media, Owned Media).
Apply some analysis and propose one additional recommendation that this company/brand could be executing to make their purposeful marketing even more effective and successful
In other words, explain their purposeful marketing and what they are doing on their social media channels, with their paid advertising, perhaps leveraging social media influencers and what kind of earned/editorial media it is generating. Bring this to life with live links and visuals of tweets/posts, etc.
NOTE: I have already conducted research and have provided many sources for you in Week #8 on Canvas.
Listed below are the guidelines/instructions for Introspection Paper #2:
– Your paper should be approximately 1,000 words (no more than 1,100 words and no less than 900 words)
– Your paper should be single spaced, with a double space between paragraphs and NO tabs or indentations at the start of paragraphs
– Your name, a title/headline and submission date should be typed at the top of the page. You do NOT need to create a cover page
– Your paper should be typo-free and error-free including correct spelling, sentence structure and punctuation
– You should utilize at least five (5) sources and list all sources at the end of the paper using APA Style
– Your paper should be well organized and have a logical introduction and conclusion
– Your conclusion should provide your analysis including how the company/brand you selected could even have even more impact and success with their purposeful marketing
– You can go above and beyond and interview by phone a current marketing, advertising, public relations, social media executive to learn of their point-of-view and quote them in your paper
