“Get Out And Try . . . Waunakee”
Campaign 2020 Summary
The Village of Waunakee and Waunakee Area Chamber of Commerce recognize the serious negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our local businesses. The Village and Chamber found it urgent to better understand and address this impact. The project involved conducting and analyzing comprehensive market research within the business community. Based on the research, a set of recommendations was issued to include a branded marketing campaign.
The market research made it clear that the vast majority of Waunakee area businesses had suffered severe negative impacts by COVID-19 and the subsequent mandated closures and limitations. While recognizing the necessary public health measures, the business community had been dealt a severe blow and businesses were struggling for their own survival. As such, a broad-reaching branded marketing campaign was devised labeled “Get Out And Try . . . Waunakee”.
