Week 1: Consolidating your brand identity  into a brand manual
It is important to have consistency in your brand’s visual communication, and for everyone on the team to be aligned. In week 1, we put together a simple brand guidebook that organises your brand’s colours, fonts, language, style, and brand assets. We will consolidate all your brand elements and make it easily accessible to other team members and external collaborators who will be working on your brand.

Week 2: Creating a strong narrative for your organisation
The narrative is the backbone of your communications. We will dissect and evaluate your current narrative, and re-write your narrative using simple frameworks and guides. By the end of the week, we aim to have a well articulated narrative for your organisation that can be used across various mediums of communication.

Week 3: Collecting and writing stories from the field
This week you will learn how to collect and collate stories from the field - how to go about research and data collection in the communities you work with. We will then use frameworks and storytelling tools to write a story that can be used as a blog/ article/ SM post/ reports etc.

Week 4: Designing your pitch deck
With the narrative in place, this week we will focus on leveraging design to make a powerful funder pitch deck. We will work on simplifying your deck keeping the end user in mind, and presenting it with the right photos, design assets, and content.

Build your fundamental brand materials

This program will provide you with all the fundamentals you need to boost your team’s fundraising, PR, outreach, partnership, and recruitment goals. You will learn how to manage your brand and how to carry it forward across multiple channels of communication.

Week 1: Identifying goals and barriers
The first step towards an effective communications strategy is understanding what you have set as goals for the organisation, so that your strategy can assist in achieving those goals. In week 1, we will share processes for identifying goals and barriers that will help us articulate what we need to focus on and leverage through communications.

Week 2: Idea generation and prioritisation
This week we will wear our creative hats and ideate on all the components that need to go into our communications strategy. From designed materials to events to PR, we will generate a wish list of ideas. We will then engage in a strategic prioritisation exercise to shortlist what we can do and achieve over the year.

Week 3: Calendaring and resource allocation
We will design and build a year long communications calendar with the shortlisted ideas. We will also discuss and assign time, resources, funds that need to go into each of them. By the end of this week we will have a clear plan of action with the budget and resources required to execute on the strategy.

Week 4: Constructing your digital strategy
Since digital outreach is a critical facet of communications for us, we will focus this week on learning about how we can boost our digital presence in-house. We will learn quick tips on how to create content and develop and plan and calendar for your digital outreach.

Why invest in a comms strategy?

Having a clear annual communications strategy plan allows your organisation to leverage the power of communications  to get you closer to your org's broader goals. A strategy helps your team be more organised and prepared for the year, and avoid fire-fighting at the last minute all the time.

In this progr
am, you will be guided through a super easy process to put together a strong communications plan that is customised for your team's strength, available resources, and targeted organisational needs. It will also guide you on how to implement the plan yourself in-house for the next 8-12 months.

Program FEE: inr 2.5L +GST

Program 2

What we will help you build

  1. Full communications strategy deck

  2. Communications calendar for 8-12 months

  3. Detailed digital outreach calendar for the quarter

  4. Execution Framework to sustain the process

  5. Access to curated tools and resources for research, design, content, outreach, outsourcing, project management

Over the last 7 years, our team has been helping organisations achieve their fundraising, brand building, recruitment and program goals by leveraging communications. We are a small team doing targeted long-term projects. We have worked hard in helping the market change its perception of the role of communications & design, and begin investing more in research-backed solutions. This has been a slow change. There is still a lot more work to be done, and a lot more support needed. The Blueprint Project is our way to train + build capacity within orgs that are working on tight timelines and bootstrapped resources.
