Client Brief
Yorkshire Tea is a black tea blend produced by The Bettys & Taylors Group. It was introduced in 1886 by Charles Edward Taylor. Initially founded as CE Taylor & Co., later shortened to “Taylor’s”, the company was purchased by rival ‘Betty’s Tea Rooms’ which today forms The Bettys & Taylors Group.
The company is one of the few remaining family tea and coffee merchants in the UK, whilst competing with the British-owned PG Tips (Unilever) and Tetley (Tata), where Yorkshire Tea is now the third most purchased tea brand in the UK, overtaking Twinings and Typhoo. The tea market is in decline, from £699million in 2010 to £654million in 2015.
Devise a short term advertising strategy and supporting media plan (to run for six months), with significant focus on media decisions for campaign. The campaign needs to focus on sustaining their position in the market and competing more directly with the market leaders, within a budget of £1.5million. You do not have to account for advertising agency fees or creative and production costs as they are not included in the media budget. There are no restrictions on channels or media, as long as they fit within the budget.
Your media plan needs to incorporate…

  1. Critical evaluation of media channel options, bearing in mind the brand, its target market and the target audience for the proposed advertising campaign.
  2. A 9 square storyboard for a ‘broadcast’ advertisement – see below
  3. Detailed media plan (proposal) for presentation to the Senior Management team of the organisation featured in your chosen brief. This plan must provide justification for your channel recommendations and justification for all the specific media you are recommending be used within those channels.
  4. Budget breakdown by channel and by specific media within each channel.
  5. Schedule indicating when each media element will run during the overall campaign time frame, and which correlates with the budget breakdown provided.
