Northeastern Workforce Development Board
DIGITAL MARKETING AND SOCIAL MEDIA SERVICES
Northeastern Workforce Development Board (NWDB) is seeking proposals from qualified and experienced contractors to provide digital marketing and social media support services as well as design services to support the NWDB brand as well as specific agency programs and initiatives, specifically NextGen through the E3 initiative.
The Northeastern Workforce Development Board (NWDB) is a group of community leaders appointed by local elected officials. The NWDB serves North Carolina’s 10 most northeastern counties: Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell, and Washington Counties. The purpose of the NWDB is to provide policy, planning and oversight for local workforce development programs and to address workforce issues as identified by the communities that they represent. NWDB’s mission is to foster employment of northeastern North Carolinians by enriching the skills and suitability of candidate employees for the businesses of the region.
With more customers and stakeholders relying on digital platforms, especially youth, to get information, it is critical for NWDB to have a streamlined and effective digital presence, whether it’s social media channels or paid digital banner ads. This proposal is to supplement NWDB with the planning and execution of high-quality, effective, creative digital owned and paid campaigns in support of NWDB’sNextGen brand, programs, and other program initiatives through the E3 initiative. The goal is to create a digital outreach strategy targeted to youth by contracting with a digital marketing firm and embedding the outreach strategy with the benefits of being a NextGen participant, such as earning money for reaching goals (incentives) and participating in work-based learning. The digital outreach campaign would focus on expanding our presence on Facebook and adding advertising through other social media platforms that are popular with our youth including Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok, and other applications such as music streaming services and other services targeted toward youth.
