Unpacking Innovation for Non-Profit Media Network


  • Findings from Brand Health tracking suggest that delivering “innovative” benefits represents an opportunity, but there is insufficient detail for PBS marketing and communications to take action
  • Need to detail out and “unpack Innovative” into a series of benefit statements that can be tested with consumers to understand:
    • How consumers define and think about innovation in the context of their viewing and giving alternatives
    • How Innovation benefits drive consumer behavior-influencing their intent to tune-in and their intent to donate


  • Conduct an internal inventory of current/planned “innovative” activities, products and services that may form the basis for PBS brand points of difference with consumers
  • Draft specific Innovation benefit statements that can be tested with consumers to reveal opportunities to differentiate the PBS brand and activate consumer intent¬†to tune in and to donate
  • Design qualitative and quantitative research to test the Innovation hypotheses with consumers
  • Field research, prepare topline report of findings and reveal insights and generate specific recommendations
  • Develop creative and organizational briefs (positioning framework) that highlights actionable insights for PBS stakeholders


  • Generated key insights regarding the Innovative benefits that PBS delivers that influence consumers to view PBS content and to donate to their local station:
    • Free accessibility and content
    • Keeps up with my lifestyle and device preferences
    • Intelligent and meaningful programming
    • Unique topics and multiple genres
    • Uninterrupted viewing experiences
  • Informed the design and production of “PBS Anywhere” campaign that highlighted the Innovative nature of PBS supporting multiple devices and media platforms
  • Provided guidance for specific campaigns to influence consumer behaviors with regard to watching PBS content and giving to their local PBS station based on Innovative benefit drivers

  • PBS lacked visibility into consumer perspectives regarding the brand
  • They required a repeatable and scalable process to generate brand health analytics including awareness, appeal and attitudes

  • Leveraged syndicated research sources to drive out initial brand health insights
  • Designed custom quantitative consumer survey to reveal insights regarding consumer behaviors for both national and local market
  • Developed proprietary analytic models to convert data into actionable insights for management
  • Created role-specific dashboards and reports to supports decision-making

  • Quantified brand impact by correlating brand messages to consumer donation and tune in behaviors
