I just read an article about not ending a presentation with “any questions?”. It made a
great point in just ending a presentation with a strong statement. One suggestion was to
summarize the presentation.

Presentation Script
Title Slide
(((Froylan)))Good Afternoon Everyone. My Name Froylan,
(((Robin))) I Am Robin,
(((Froylan))and we work for Cepeda and Elkins

Today we are excited to present an ad campaign for your Non-Profit Boxing


Club

Development

(((Froylan)))
We began the process by researching. First we looked into your social
media presences to gain a better understanding of your brand identity.
Total K.O. Boxing is a all-girls non-profit organization with the mission to
enhance the social skills and promote exemplary citizenship of women of
all ages in the community.
(((Robin)))
Up to this point, Total K.O has relied upon word-of-mouth advertisements,
similar methods have been used by the competition. We took this into
consideration to create a unique brand image and separate Total KO from
the competition, with an ad campaign geared toward your target audience.

(((Froylan)))
The target audience for Total K.O. are women. Age ranges from 10-54. Specifically
mothers, millennials, teenagers who are interested in mentoring, an active lifestyle,
combat sports and all of whom have disposable income to spend on a gym
membership.
(((Robin)))
Research from Ketchum, and from the Fortino Group was used to make the
decision to advertise over social networks. These studies showed that
females and the younger generations are consuming social media at a
rapid rate. The teenage generation is already expected to spend one third
of their lives on social media.
Another benefit of using social media is the affordability. It will not cost
Total K.O. a dime to post these ads on their owned media. And promoting
posts and advertisements through social media are quite economic and
affordable.

(((Froylan)))
First, I want to verify that we met all mandatories you asked for. Your
name, logo, and our new tagline.

Next, I want to direct you to is the tagline behind our campaign “Shattering
Stereotypes”.
In Fort Worth, Total KO has the (USP) unique selling proposition of being
an all-female boxing gym. We made it a point to emphasize this in the ad
by focusing our concept to be “empowering women”.

Just like how women, today, are shattering the glass ceiling in their
professional lives, the young girl in our ad , the same age as the girls you
cater to in your outreach program, “shatters” the false, and incorrect
stereotypes that girls (and women) are weak, inferior, and too masculine if
they do “boy” things.
Like Robin said earlier, a lot of your competitors also rely on word-of-mouth
to bring in gym members. The few ads that we did see were hard sell ads.
In the industry, hard sells are a term we use to define ads that are simple
and direct. Usually, just a photo of the product/service and the price. The
ads from the campaign we are presenting today are soft sell ads. Ads that
are more subtle and indirect. These ads are elegant, thoughtful, and
designed to evoke emotional responses to your target audience. Our ads
will catch the attention of your target audience, spark their interest, and
create a desire that will lead to the action of them reaching out to you and
joining your boxing gym.

(((Robin))
((VO)) ((Campaign Video))

The print ad is the launching point for the campaign and we wanted to
make sure that the other elements not only relate and build off one another
but call back to the Print Ad. Using glass sound effects to connect with a
glass ceiling, and the use of negative stereotypes that females are
subjected to.”

Conclusion
(((Froylan)))
This campaign has legs to go into other mediums and if you are interested
we have a radio script already written to start spreading the word.

Thank you for your time today and remember Together
