The Work Flow We Use When Reaching the LGBTQ Community Online

The Work Flow We Use When Reaching the LGBTQ Community Online | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it

In years past, when a client was looking to reach the LGBTQ community online, we would start with their ad creative and go from there, adapting and maximizing it to optimal banner ad sizes, both for the desktop and mobile, as well as e-mail newsletter sponsorships.  If a client wanted a more robust campaign, we would then explore content, usually in the form of editorial, that could be adapted, edited and run on various LGBTQ websites online... Over the past few years, we have reversed this trend. We now start with targeting first, trying to understand WHO the client is trying to reach

VIDEO: The Words Matter - One Voice Can Make a Difference

VIDEO: The Words Matter - One Voice Can Make a Difference | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it

When Michael Chanak took a job at Procter & Gamble in the mid 1980s, the AIDS epidemic was rampant. The company had found a niche with Peridex—a prescription mouthwash used to treat thrush in people suffering from HIV/AIDS. But despite selling to the LGBT community, P&G had no language protecting these individuals within the company. Chanak, who’d become a vocal gay rights activist, wanted to change that. With years of work and help from a small but determined group of colleagues, in 1992, P&G became one of the first Fortune 500 companies to add sexual orientation to its equal employment opportunity (EEO) statement of diversity. Twenty-five years later, that legacy lives on. This is the story of one man’s efforts to hold a corporation responsible and ultimately improve the lives of LGBT workers across the country.
