PlaceSyncing is our process for ensuring that data, knowledge, interpretation, strategy and imagination all align within the same clearly defined path. It encompasses the Intrinsics, Dimensions, Phases and Drivers that follow:
A place is defined by its general setting, overall character, various attractions, set of activities and calendar of events. We create stories to depict the destination in the most expansive and experiential way possible.
Place Offerings, Attributes
Demographic and Lifestyle Trends
Target Market Segments
These are the categories we become experts at to create a solid foundation for all the branding and marketing work to come.
We tour sites, review offerings, interview stakeholders, and assemble research, until we are clear about everything that is possible to know.
Connect dots, look for patterns, find hierarchies, uncover clues in ways that reveal opportunities and ownable territory. Then tweak it, test it and organize it into a coherent framework.
From the tapestry of attributes, traits and trends, common denominators lead to an essential truth and key concepts that drive the brand and marketing plan forward.
From what to share to how to share it. The "voice", style, imagery, stories, graphic language, etc. What's the overall POV? What can we own and how can we stand apart?
Where do we show up? How do we interact with others, create rapport? Places are all about participation and involvement. How can we create that connection?
What are the various emotions that draw people to places? We've identified 13 of them, organized into these word clusters. Extremely useful for placemaking, branding and marketing.
