MS Queensland is the leading, non-profit organisation for Multiple Sclerosis information, education, treatment and support in the state.

Challenge:

To prepare for the new National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), MS Queensland wanted to develop an in-home support program (IHSP) for those with a disability or progressive neurological disease residing in the Brisbane and Ipswich areas; but it did not have the expertise to plan an accompanying marketing strategy.

Solution:

Edmonds Marketing:

  • Created a marketing framework with a structured approach.
  • Ran a half-day planning workshop with key members of the IHSP team, as well as MS Queensland’s media and communications staff.
  • Ensured MS Queensland had an informed decision-making process and could leverage valuable knowledge and insights from its key internal stakeholders regarding the marketplace and the IHSP’s offering.
  • Developed a launch strategy with a clear path to market:
  • Identified detailed business objectives, key performance indicators, audience segments and core tactics.
  • Performed a SWOT analysis.
  • Planned a strategic approach to the competitive landscape.
  • Prepared a marketing calendar of activity within the available budget, setting out marketing opportunities to support the launch.
  • Created a value proposition, tagline and key messages.
