Keynote Presentations

  • Pauline Aylesbury & Nicci Motiang - Scottish Government

"From co-creation to positive deviants: citizens at the heart of social marketing campaigns”

The Scottish Government have worked increasingly to ensure their social marketing campaigns are informed by citizens’ experiences and needs. Their innovative parent strategy puts parent needs first ahead of organisational and topic silos, providing parents with what they need in the moment. The ensuing ParentClub campaign was developed via extensive user testing and the input of specially recruited Parent Panels. Scottish Government have built on the success of this approach to develop other joined-up initiatives with regards to driver behaviour, cancer detection, mental health and risk behaviours. Believing that we have much to learn from those who have successfully undertaken change themselves, Scottish Government have also prioritised learning from “positive deviants”. They will share key insight and lessons learned, with implications for social marketers across a wide range of audiences and policy areas.

  

  • Ann Don Bosco - Public Health England

“Innovation within public health marketing”

This talk will cover Public Health England’s (PHE) approach to marketing - from campaign planning through to delivery and evaluation. It will showcase new approaches PHE is using within audience insight to understand the subconscious, how PHE embeds behavioural theory within its campaigns and how it uses data to understand audiences and target communications. It will draw on examples from PHE campaigns including Change4Life, Talk to FRANK and Keep Antibiotics Working to showcase how PHE has been able to engage millions of people in their health.

   

  • Abi Badejo - Grace & Grit Social Enterprise, Griffith University

“Social Marketing in the Face of Oppression: A Call to Arms against Human Trafficking and Other Social Ills”

Title: Selecting and unpacking behaviours: A critical first step in developing effective behavioural change programs

Track: Advancing theory

The first step of community-based social marketing is behaviour selection. This interactive session will cover how to select which behaviors to target as well as how to “unpack” selected behaviours. Determining which behaviours to target, and developing a deep understanding of the selected behaviours, is a critical first step in delivering effective social marketing programs.

Title: Let’s stop reinventing the wheel: How existing segmentation strategies can be overlaid on to new consumer data

Track: Advancing theory

Segmentation is well regarded as an effective strategy to optimise resources for program delivery by governments, private companies, and NGOs. With segmentation methodologies becoming easier to implement, measure and test, their usage has increased drastically since Smith's (1956) seminal work. However, new versions are being created with such frequency that instead of testing and comparing competing models, new versions of very similar segmentation strategies are being created. Instead of constantly reinventing the wheel, researchers and practitioners should be able to take what already exists and test it through the lens of their data. As such, this work examines an existing segmentation model and applies it to new data. Using mixture modelling the process is demonstrated and some mechanisms for assessing alignment are discussed.

Title: Enhancing promotion through conjoint analysis: opportunities for research on Social Networking Sites and web-based communication

Track: Advancing theory

This session focuses on the role of promotion in social marketing and the opportunities provided by social media to improve communication to promote healthy behaviors. Studies have shown that using social media in a public health intervention is not per se effective in promoting behavior change. By exploring preference structures, conjoint analysis has the potential to increase the effectiveness of promotional materials and improve our understanding of how different people are influenced differently by those messages.

Title: Leave It 2.0: A social marketing approach for koala conservation

Track: Climate change, environment protection, sustainability

Dog attacks are amongst the most common causes of koala deaths. Engaging the community in programs designed to promote wildlife conservation is of essence to achieve more effective programs. Following the successful implementation of a pilot program focussed on providing dog training in basic obedience skills and embedding wildlife aversion into the program, Leave It 2.0 is currently being implemented city-wide. The program is designed to improve basic dog obedience behaviours and wildlife aversion through increased dog training in the local city council area.

Title: Is social marketing used in demand reduction campaigns for illegal wildlife products? Insights from elephant ivory and rhino horn

Track: Climate change, environment protection, sustainability

The illegal wildlife trade is a global threat to biodiversity as well as public health and good governance. Social marketing is increasingly being used to support biodiversity conservation efforts, but the extent of its use has seldom been researched. Our findings highlight that there are substantial gaps between best practice in social marketing and current practices in the design of demand reduction campaigns. However, several elements of social marketing are widely utilised.

Title: Social Marketing Bloopers: Learning from past mistakes

Track: Promoting global health

In social marketing, people often only talk about the successes and academic journals rarely publish studies which achieved negative results. However, rarely does a social marketing project go fully to plan, especially when you are working with multiple stakeholders and government departments. Being honest about the mistakes made is important to move the discipline forward, and help others learn so mistakes are not duplicated. This fun session will be fully interactive. Participants will get an opportunity to hear about a variety of social marketing projects where some things worked well, but where not everything went to plan! These projects will be from all over the globe, including specific examples from Vietnam, UK, Ethiopia and Jordan. Participants will then have the opportunity to share their own experiences and lessons learnt.

Title: Leveraging Segmentation for the Greatest Impact: A Comprehensive Approach to Strategic Planning for Social Marketing Programs

Track: Critical social marketing

Many social marketing programs attempt to reach broad populations with general market campaigns. This session argues that mass reach programs are only effective in specific scenarios where the majority of the population needs to change its behavior. More often, broad strategies are used to reach subpopulations. By overlooking what makes those subpopulations different from the general population, generally targeted programs fail to reach their intended audience. This talk will present peer crowd campaign principles, how advanced audience segmentation could improve efforts to change behavior over time, and how these strategies can effectively be applied across traditional media, digital, social, interactive media, and local outreach, using several recent social marketing program examples.

"Leveraging the Power of the Private Sector for Social Impact"

Corporations have long been engaged in social change, some as core strategies (doing well by doing good), some because “it’s just the right thing to do,” and others to greenwash or to change the subject about the source of their profits.

While public trust in corporations is declining, the public expects companies to increase efforts to do create social good and make the world a better place.

Based on a long career (with lots of bumps, bruises and scar tissue to show for it), I will talk about why we need companies at the table, in the field and in policy makers’ offices, and how to influence their performance.

Title: Benefits and challenges of social media: a social marketing review

Track: Digital and technological impact on social behaviour

There has been limited investigation into how social marketers incorporate social media in social marketing campaigns. Recognising the potential of social media as an integral driver of communication that facilitates two-way conversations, this review seeks to identify and synthesise salient benefits and challenges of social media usage in social marketing campaigns conducted worldwide between 2005 and 2017. Following a systematic literature review procedure, twenty-nine social marketing campaigns utilising social media communications channels were identified. The findings were thematically grouped under eight main topics: targeted reach and raising awareness, continuous consumer insight, ongoing interaction and dialogue, promoting behaviour change, cost and time efficiency, discussing sensitive issues, building relationships and social media challenges. Identified taxonomies inform future research opportunities.

Title: Understanding the Drivers of Youth Social Action in Economically Challenged Communities: a Deep Dive Qualitative Study with Young People

By considering a young-person centric view of social action, we suggest that participation in social action could be encouraged among lower socio-economic groups if a ‘closer to home’ view of the concept was embraced: one that valued the positive social action young people say they engage with in order to help and care for family members and friends. The importance of communal motivation is also highlighted, while the findings suggest that barriers to taking action may be geographically based.

Title: Promoting the use of less salt in homemade food in families of preschoolers in Lima, Peru: results from a formative research study

Track: Promoting global health

Salt is a chemical compound, the essential seasoning in the preparation of food. This important input in the lives of people and their high consumption is considered by WHO as one of the risk factors that favour early death from cardiovascular diseases. To beat the problem of excess pressure in Peru, a training study was proposed with the objective of describing the barriers and motivators that influence the behaviour of people in relation to salt intake (sodium), and identify the determinants to propose a social marketing strategy that promotes the gradual reduction of salt consumption in selected households in the urban districts of Ventanilla and Miraflores. This abstract presents some results on the perspectives of women and women, with children at preschool age, in relation to the use and consumption of health, the findings that raise it are a social marketing plan that promotes the gradual decrease in salt intake.

Title: Why A Change In Financial Behaviour Does Not Always Trigger A Change In Financial Well-Being?

Track: Financial literacy and wellbeing

It is criticised that barely any literature has focused on social marketing products (Glenane-Antoniadis et al., 2003). Can financial education intervention be used as a social marketing product to promote financial behaviour change and well-being? This needs a creative approach to create financial well-being intervention using financial education as a social marketing product that can be marketed for social good. The main purpose of this study is to explore how to make use of online financial education to promote desirable financial behaviour change and well-being.

Title: Boosting motivation through autonomy and co-creation

Track: Using citizen focused design thinking

Did you ever try to persuade people to change by sharing your knowledge about social marketing and behavioural science? Do these people comply with your advice and does the target group apply it directly to their everyday life? That sure would be nice. But let’s be honest: no matter how powerful a message is, spreading knowledge rarely leads to a direct shift in behaviour. In this workshop participants are challenged to offer their target audience an experience rather than creating a perfect message. The aim of this workshop is to demonstrate how principles of autonomy and co-creation can boost motivation. After this workshop the participants have experienced how they became intrinsically motivated themselves, and have tools on how to boost motivation within their own target group.

Title: Critique and discussion for social marketing practitioners and researchers: “There is nothing more practical than a good theory”

In this session we advocate a need for evaluation and synthesis of current theoretical orientation in the field of social marketing. We incorporate critical appraisal to generate a practical structure for clarity to guide social marketing researchers and practitioners to integrate theoretical models, applications and implications with social marketing praxis. In this conceptual discussion we elaborate on defining and understanding the suitability of a theory, explore the application of and evaluation of theories, and discuss development and refinement of theory. We synthesise these ideas to provide some practical structure and recommendations for the researcher/practitioner in social marketing and related social scientific fields.

"Telling Stories That Change People"

Change is scary, confusing, and daunting. Part of the psychological process of convincing someone to change is to make the change feel easy, appealing, and realistic. Social marketing programmes can make change more likely by telling stories that show our populations how the new behaviour would benefit them through the lens of their own reality. Be focusing on behaviours from the perspective of our targeted populations, we can set aside our own justifications and instead reframe change using their values, attitudes, and world views. Whether in-person, online, or in media, this talk will demonstrate how we can all tell stories that change people.

Title: Normative influence and effectiveness of recycling policy on household waste separation

Track: Climate change, environment protection, sustainability

This study examines the respective role of personal and social norms on the intention to engage in household waste separation for recycling purpose and further evaluates the potential moderating effect of recycling policy implementation on the proposed relationships. Quantitative data were collected from households residing in a city that is currently implementing a mandatory recycling policy (Johannesburg) and from a city that is not (Tshwane). The findings underline the importance of personal norms in influencing pro-environmental behaviour and highlight the limited moderating effect of policy implementation. Policymakers are therefore urged to activate personal norms and apply more persuasive approaches such as financial incentives that will motivate households to comply with recycling policies.

Title: The Chi Initiative - A social marketing approach to reduce the demand for rhino horn in Viet Nam

Track: Climate change, environment protection, sustainability

The Chí, or “Strength of Will”, social marketing initiative seeks to reduce demand for rhino horn by using communication strategies to reduce the social status conferred by buying rhino horn, and thereby reduce consumption.The initiative is one of the first examples of a social marketing initiative applied to help mitigate the markets for illegally traded wildlife. A substantial approach to evaluation of impact and influential factors in success or failure has consequently been applied. Adaptive management of messaging, messengers and overall approaches between the phases of the Chi initiative, has occurred in line with research findings. Through this process, the significant potential for behaviour change to support conservation outcomes, alongside complementary legislation and enforcement action, has been confirmed.

10.15 - 11.15 - PANEL: Food, health and the environment: A systems perspective on healthy and sustainable diets

Food transects health and the environment. Increasingly, there is agreement that the food system – including the production, institutions, marketing, consumer behaviour related to the purchase and consumption of food – plays a major role in driving poor health and environmental degradation. Obesity, food insecurity and undernutrition, unsustainable diets, food waste and climate change pose significant questions to the current food system. This panel brings together international experts, researchers and practitioners to reflect on different approaches and solutions needed to support societal transformation to healthy and sustainable diets. The panel aims to provide a platform for discussion of multidisciplinary perspectives, theoretical considerations and interventions on food systems and their connections to health and environment. Come to this interactive panel to learn more.

Title: A systematic review of the effectiveness of social marketing in designing interventions on contraception

Track: Advancing theory

The study aims to evaluate the existing literature on the effectiveness of social marketing in designing interventions on contraception through systematic literature review. The results show that some of the social marketing characteristics are used in the selected interventions such as (consumer research, behaviour change objectives and limited use of segmentation, the marketing mix theory and exchange), however none of the studies is designed particularly as a social marketing intervention which leads to varying and unreliable outcomes and failure to achieve long-term objectives. In addition, considering the progress of social marketing in recent times, the inclusion of new applications of social marketing (e.g. sustainability among the desired behaviour) in the selected interventions is negligible. This shows that there is a need to use more social marketing applications in contraception interventions to enhance the effectiveness. Improvement in performance might be achieved through the development and application of a new social marketing methodology to design intervention on contraception in the future. Detailed results and conclusion will be available for presentation at the conference.

Title: Barriers of condom use in Asia: a social marketing perspective

Track: Promoting global health

The uniqueness of Asian culture has strong impacts on people’s attitudes and behaviours in terms of condom use. There is no existing reviews on the studies investigating what are the barriers of condom use in Asia. The purpose of this paper is to systematically identify and analyse the barriers of condom use in major Asian countries. Using the method of systematic literature review, 300 articles were identified and analysed and a total of seven barriers emerged, namely: sexual conservatism, stigma and discrimination, lack of awareness, patriarchy, urban/rural divide, poor governance, and poor marketing strategy. The findings of this study indicate that lack of awareness, stigma and discrimination, and patriarchy are the three most common barriers of condom use in Asia. The awareness of the benefits of condom, the knowledge of sexual health, and creating social norms with increased acceptance of condoms remained the largest challenges to promote condom use in Asia. Findings from this systematic review provide insights into the future policy formation and intervention design to promote more condom use in Asia countries.

Chair - Patrick Cook, President of the International Social Marketing Association and representative for social marketing with the Global Alliance. 

Social marketing is not alone in the world of social change. Many different models offer strategies to enable change through the application of communication, behavioral, and social theories and practices. But how different are these models? Are they merely variations on a theme, or, because of their history and application, their differences are material and important? With an abundance of models and approaches available to funders, researchers, and practitioners, it can be hard to navigate the different models. This panel will explore the history, approaches, and evidence supporting three common approaches to social change—communication for development, behavior change communication, and social marketing—and why the commonalities and differences matter. We will also provide an overview of the Global Alliance for Social and Behavior Change, a global initiative that is convening representatives from the full spectrum of social and behavior change approaches, including social marketing.

Title: The efficacy of voluntary codes of practice in relation to the advertising and marketing high fat, salt and sugar foods to children

Track: Critical social marketing

Heavy reliance on voluntary codes of practice (VCP) to regulate the marketing of high fat, salt and sugar (HFSS) foods and beverages to children is problematic. Our comparison of codes of practice in three countries show, that without procedures for registration or a monitoring body, VCP are completely ineffective. To highlight this ineffectiveness, we present the findings of our psycho-geographic study, which reveals the chasm that exists between policy and the lived-in obesogenic environment.

Track: Critical social marketing

A common assumption in many social change efforts is that there is a “best way” people should live or their wellbeing will suffer. This study explores the concept of value destruction to understand what leads individuals to terminate service use designed to support wellbeing. Surprisingly, the findings suggest service termination did not necessarily negatively impact wellbeing and that there are personal agency implications.

Title: A Dynamic Stakeholders’ Framework

Track: Using systems thinking to solve complex societal problems

Stakeholder engagement that is systemically contextualized, not firm-centric reductionist is the way forward. This paper proposes that stakeholders in social marketing fundamentally engage in continual dynamic behaviours where no single level (macro, meso or micro) is any important than another. Rather, what is important are the relative interactions and relationships that form collaborations, cooperative and conflictual behaviours that elevate to collective behavioural patterns. This paper contributes a dynamic model of stakeholders by building upon Layton’s Mechanism, Action and Structure (MAS) theory (2015) and Coleman’s Boat (1986) using social mechanisms as the theoretical foundation. The paper presents a dynamic stakeholders framework that incorporates critical features and eight propositions. An illustrative case study in an obesity context is presented to demonstrate the framework.

Title: What creates good everyday life? Creating meaningful public policies and services through understanding citizens’ values

Track: Using systems thinking to solve complex societal problems

This paper examines what creates a good everyday life from a citizen perspective. The results of a content analysis (n=548) revealed that citizens value their social relationships, ability to do meaningful things and getting enough rest. The insight can be used to create public policies and services that resonate with citizens’ everyday lives.

Title: Development and use of systems social marketing methodology to explore dynamic complexity of wicked problems

Track: Using systems thinking to solve complex societal problems

The current research develops and uses a systems social marketing (SSM) methodology for understanding dynamics of complex systems, which characterise wicked problems. The methodology is based on (a) social marketing principles and techniques, (b) Layton’s Mechanisms, Actions and Structure (MAS) macromarketing framework, and (c) systems dynamics and group model building methodology. In the result of SSM application, all system key stakeholders consensually originate a causal loop diagram (a system map) representing interdependencies of system factors. The map helps to plan social marketing interventions by identifying leverage points, i.e. high impact zones for system improvement.

Title: Educating Today’s Students to be Tomorrow’s Social Marketing Leaders

Track: Interdisciplinary and cross sector action

Because a number of programs in business schools and public health have added courses in social marketing, and because service learning has been shown to be highly effective in student learning, this research investigated the impact of a social marketing course with a service learning project. Unlike most social marketing courses, students in this course not only develop a social marketing plan, they also implement the plan. The course is described in detail, including an example case. Positive outcomes were found for both students and clients.

Title: What’s new and old in social marketing thinking? Reaffirming its political grounds

Track: Critical social marketing

Since social marketing was presented as a new discipline, it has grown as a significant field of study and intervention, but recently there are some reasons for concern. Technological innovation and the way it has been used represents in many ways a major threat to human freedom, abusively conditioning people's behaviours, and affecting social marketing and all behaviour change fields. Simultaneously, the political environment in which social marketing was born has changed a lot. After democracy had a remarkable global run, the expansion of freedom and democracy in the world came to a halt, with the emergence of populisms, negative nationalisms, and the affirmation of authoritarian regimes. In view of this, social marketing must reaffirm its political grounds. This paper tries to identify them to respond to those negative trends and maintain our field as an instrument for a free and democratic society, able to promote the improvement of its people’s well-being.

Title: Pathways to Change: An Examination of Impact for the Research Excellence Framework

Track: Interdisciplinary and cross sector action

This paper examines the importance of developing and enhancing capital resources, particularly social capital as a strong pathway to achieving significance and reach in impactful research within the context of the Research Excellence Framework. Past research has placed emphasis on a planned approach to change when, planning and engagement alone can limit impact. Through a case study based on the authors research on a UK policy Shared Parental Leave and their efforts to influence government and organisations to create change, it is found that an opportunity driven entrepreneurial approach as well as ongoing reflexive evaluation is crucial for strong and sustainable pathways to impact and ultimately to deliver change with the reach and significance required for REF. This paper introduces the use of reflexive evaluation and the importance of focused capital within impactful research. The paper also offers guidance for undertaking an impact case and highlights that the type of capital generated is more important than the quantity of capital for the outcomes of an impact case.

Title: Choosing a multi-field behaviour change mix: A practical tool for management decision making.

Track: Interdisciplinary and cross sector action

Social marketing sits alongside a wide variety of behaviour change disciplines or ‘fields’. There is a need to manage behaviour change at a ‘meta-field’ level, that is, taking a ‘helicopter view’ of these fields in order to pick out the most appropriate strategies to solve a particular behavioural challenge. In this paper the authors illustrate a process for making executive decisions to choose a design that maximises behaviour change at least cost.

Speakers: Jeff Jordan

Defining Your Audience's Pathway to Behavior Change

Session Facilitators: Jeff Jordan

Location: Melville

Session content overview:

This workshop will provide an overview of how health communications and social marketing can contribute to health behavior change by exploring the behavior change pathways of knowledge, ability, and norms. Following the framework, the session will explore the components of effective behavior change initiatives, including segmentation and targeting, as well as case studies showcasing how each pathway has been successfully implemented within a specific community and through a specific program. Evaluation best practices will be shared and tips for setting up a social marketing program for success from the time a behavioral challenge is identified and a strategic pathway is selected, through campaign development, implementation and evaluation.

Finally, participants will engage in interactive exercises that allow them to apply the Behavior Change Pathways Framework and evaluation principles to their local communities. Challenges and tips for identifying the strategy that will drive the most impact with the most efficient use of often scarce funds will be explored through peer-to-peer discussions and case studies.

Workshop Outcomes:

By the end of this workshop, participants will have a strong foundation of behavior change science to guide their programs at home. Workshop participants will leave with the outline of an action plan that is tailored to their specific area of focus. This workshop provides an opportunity to reflect on learnings from the conference and to incorporate new knowledge into your social marketing intervention.
