Playing Mind Games

To give a brief strong direction, we need to ascertain how the brand intends to win attention, how it will engage, what its call to action will be and how to build up trust with the audience. It is a chance to take your brand story and archetypes and decide precisely what and how you want to communicate to the outside world.

To give a brief strong direction, we need to ascertain how the brand intends to win attention, how it will engage, what its call to action will be and how to build up trust with the audience. It is ideas that count here. These ideas can take the form of messages, visuals or tactics or a combination of all three. It is a chance to take your brand story and archetypes and decide precisely what and how you want to communicate to the outside world.

At P&P, we use the share-of-mind wheel. The four areas that you will look at are:

  1. Feelings/ Instincts

    What will win the target audience’s attention against the backdrop of a busy day and hefty media bombardment?

  2. Rational/ Benefits

    What claim or benefit can be made that will maintain their attention and achieve engagement?

  3. Priorities

    How will the target audience react, given the things they have top of mind?

  4. Values/ Beliefs/ Mission

Why should they believe it’s OK to trust your brand?

The exercise will differ depending on whether it is for the campaign or one specific piece of communication.

If the brief is being written for a campaign and you are thinking in terms of tactics, the share-of-mind wheel can be viewed as a journey with different media and tactics used to fulfil the four different criteria. For example, by developing something interactive like a game app for phones and tablets, you might win attention and generate curiosity. This will encourage players to follow a link, which leads to engaging information on a website with a clear call-to-action. They can then request further information by email. Slowly they become more involved with the brand as they learn to trust through experience.

The power of communication: Engaging diverse groups in healthcare
Humans are diverse and communications to engage us need to be inclusive. It’s no longer about talking to a group, a cohort or an imagined section of society - especially in healthcare. Communication and the strategy behind it needs to be more personal to ensure that people – whoever they are – feel valued and respected.

Rediscovering the human touch in healthcare
The landscape of our healthcare system is ever evolving. But it is under threat from the diminishing time allowances our healthcare professionals have to spend with each patient. With little sign of these issues easing, we are at risk of seeing the human touch disappear from healthcare, we must find a way to empower HCPs to deliver supportive and compassionate care in an increasingly bureaucratic system.

Remote Patient Monitoring
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus the need to harness and leverage digital tools and technology for remote patient monitoring (RPM). With the onset of lockdown, and a sense of unease when visiting conventional clinical settings, we’ve seen a need for more robust disease detection and monitoring of individual and population health, which could be aided by wearable sensors and at-home devices.

How to design better medical outcomes: Combining patient insights and empathetic design
By adopting a design-led, solutions-based approach to communications, companies can help healthcare professionals (HCPs) to better meet the needs of their patients through their communications. While now may not feel like the right time to overhaul communication strategies, in the race for relevance healthcare companies must adapt or risk being left behind.
