A SOSTAC® and PRACE planning checklist for online marketing

Table of contents Start here – how can this template be used? 1 SOSTAC® Digital Marketing Plan outline incorporating RACE 2 SITUATION 2 OBJECTIVES 2 STRATEGY 3 TACTICS 3 ACTIONS 4 CONTROL 4

Start here – how can this template be used?
SOSTAC® and RACE are two of the main tools we’ve created to help marketers plan and manage their marketing. It’s no surprise that we've had several questions asking for more information about how they relate.

To show how they’re related we’ve created this template that shows how each stage of the SOSTAC® planning process can be broken down into the key issues to consider when creating a plan to improve online marketing.

It’s basically a dense checklist for annual review or when you start a new job or project aimed at helping you get up-to-speed quickly by showing the key issues to consider within each part of strategy definition. As with other parts of our digital strategy toolkit, we’ve created it as a simple, unbranded, unformatted Word document so that it can be more easily used in your company.

SOSTAC® was created by PR Smith as a framework for structuring marketing plans. You can read more about it and get Paul’s PDF on how to apply from Amazon at
For simplicity in creating a strategy can limit to SOST since A is implementation details and KPIs and review process C can be covered under objectives
Defining an activity as a “Strategy” against a “Tactic” is open for discussion. So can shorten SOSTAC further to SOS for a quicker review and strategy definition.

Reporting Options Available to Government Colleges and Universities

...What are the main reporting options available to government colleges and universities? Do they have to prepare fund statements? Explain. Universities are permitted to prepare financial statements the same way corporations report special purpose entities. In other words they can report business type enterprises as SPI’s and not report the funds in fund statements. Public colleges and university must follow GASB pronouncements like other governmental institutions. They are allowed to follow the same reporting requirements as other special-purpose governments with a loophole that requires a choice in reporting. They can report as a special-purpose entity engaging in business-type activities only, governmental-type activities only, or both. The main sources of revenue for public institutions are state appropriations and grants.  The AICPA reporting model is widely used.  Public colleges and universities must use the same FASB standards as other NFP entities. Governmental universities use the GASB statement no 34 to report business type activities. They use government-wide statements but do not use fund statements. They use a full accrual basis and report in consolidated financial statements. The government colleges and universities only engaged in governmental activities must present a fund statement using the structure specified in GASB statement #34. The main reporting options for government colleges and universities according to statement no. 34 states that “a......

Reviewing the Validity of Caregiving Websites Available to the Public

...Reviewing the Validity of Caregiving Websites Available to the Public Hanna Mallette Colorado State University Abstract When searching the internet for websites containing help and advice for today’s caregiver, I found that there are many sites containing information that is neither accurate nor useful. Upon reviewing two of these available websites, and, I found that although these sites contained many of the same topics, their information was not equally credible. I came to the conclusion that there are hundreds of websites containing insufficient information concerning todays aging population available to the general public. Reviewing the Validity of Caregiving Websites Available to the Public When being presented with the difficult task of caregiving, many people feel isolated in the everyday struggles that are coupled with their responsibility. Often times they have no one to turn to for answers to their questions and concerns, therefore, the internet becomes their primary resource. Although the internet is an excellent source of information on just about anything one can type into the Google browser, the amount of data available can be overwhelming and much of the information found on many websites is not reliable. When “Help for dementia caregivers” is entered into Google, 293,000 results are returned. One could potentially spend weeks sorting......

Highly-Available, Homogeneous Theory for Reinforcement Learning

...Highly-Available, Homogeneous Theory for Reinforcement Learning John Mahogany Abstract Virtual theory and the memory bus [18,18] have garnered improbable interest from both information theorists and cyberneticists in the last several years. In fact, few information theorists would disagree with the improvement of DHCP, which embodies the intuitive principles of electrical engineering. Our focus here is not on whether courseware and architecture are rarely incompatible, but rather on constructing new extensible symmetries (Hoopoo). Of course, this is not always the case. Table of Contents 1) Introduction 2) Related Work 3) Architecture 4) Implementation 5) Results 5.1) Hardware and Software Configuration 5.2) Experimental Results 6) Conclusion 1 Introduction Many systems engineers would agree that, had it not been for online algorithms, the visualization of Scheme might never have occurred. The usual methods for the synthesis of SCSI disks do not apply in this area. A technical question in cryptoanalysis is the deployment of suffix trees. The private unification of link-level acknowledgements and the Turing machine would minimally degrade autonomous communication. It might seem counterintuitive but has ample historical precedence. Contrarily, hierarchical databases might not be the panacea that system administrators expected. We emphasize that our framework runs in Θ( logn ) time. For example, many methodologies visualize pseudorandom archetypes.......

Taking Into Account the Power Capabilities Available to the Participants as Leverage, Discuss the Syrian Crisis

...TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE POWER CAPABILITIES AVAILABLE TO THE PARTICIPANTS AS LEVERAGE, DISCUSS THE SYRIAN CRISIS Historical Background Syria is described as a country of fertile plains, high mountains and deserts, and is home to diverse ethnic and religious groups, including Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians, Christians, Druze, Alawite Shia and Arab Sunnis, the last of who make up a majority of the Muslim population. Syria gained its independence from France in 1946 and united with Egypt from 1958 to 1961 after which a pan-Arab nationalist Baath (Renaissance) party took control in 1963. The Alawite minority (constituting about 12 % of the total population) has exercised monopoly over the political leadership of the country for almost four decades with notable support from the Christian community that is anti- Islamist. The Baath government has seen authoritarian rule at home and a strong anti-Western policy abroad, particularly under President Hafez al-Assad from 1970 to 2000. In 1967 Syria lost the Golan Heights to Israel after the Arab defeat in the Six Day War. Civil war in neighbouring Lebanon in the 1970s allowed it to extend its political and military influence in that country. Syria pulled its forces out of Lebanon in 2005, having come under intense international pressure to do so after the assassination of Lebanese former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. A UN report implicated Syrian and pro-Syria Lebanese officials in the killing, although Damascus still denies any......

...Irony in Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour” “The story of an hour” by Kate Chopin is described as a story of great irony having many unexpected twists and turns. Situational and dramatic irony is used throughout the story. This is a story of a woman who finds out her husband’s death in a train accident and reacts with sadness in the beginning, but then realizes a freedom and relief from her repressive life. She experiences a complete joy over the death of her husband and dies from the shock of discovering that he is still alive. The first type of irony encountered is a situational irony, where there is a contrast between what is expected to happen and what actually happens. Mrs. Mallard’s discovery of her lost freedom and regaining her identity comes only after her husband’s death. In the story, dramatic irony is used when others characters believe that she has died because she is so overjoyed to see her husband alive whereas the readers know that in reality, she has died because she had   a glimpse of freedom and could not go back living under her husband’s will again. After grieving with wild abandonment of her husband’s death, Mrs. Mallard seeks solitude in her room. The open window from which she gazes represents freedom and opportunities. Instead of being gloomy and dark to symbolize death, she sees patches of blue sky, fluffy clouds and treetops. She also hears singing of birds and smells a coming rainstorm. What all this signifies is a new beginning for Mrs. Mallard.......

Cost Per Available Seat Mile

...Cost Per Available Seat Mile (CASM) By Corey Hoover 1. Research to find the CASM figures from at least two different airlines. American Airlines, 2013- 14.23 (cents per seat) Southwest Airlines, 2013- 12.60 (cents per seat) 2. Compare the CASM figures from your research. American Airlines cost per available seat mile is 1.63 cents per seat mile more than Southwest Airlines. 3. Identify what economic practices lead to a lower CASM. * Total operating expense for Southwest Airlines is $16,421, and American Airlines total operating expense is $28,704. * Southwest Airlines has 680 operating aircraft, and American Airlines has 621 operating aircraft. * Southwest has 66 employees per aircraft. American Airlines has 90 employees per aircraft. 4. Write a short essay (200-300 words) explaining why the economic practices you identified help to produce a low CASM. We can see that Southwest Airlines has an operating expense of $16,421 for one year and American Airlines has $28,704 for one year. A few key factors that are noted are that Southwest Airlines has 680 operating aircraft and American Airlines has 621. With Southwest Airlines having more aircraft, they can interchange aircraft more often which allows for more flights to be on time and some of the aircraft’s parts are interchangeable in case of emergency. Another factor that helps Southwest with lower CASM is that Southwest Airlines has 66 employees per aircraft, and American Airlines......

ALL training events and clinics would be mandatory (with the exception of Sundays) 4. *The overnight security could be something that could be mandatory for experienced kids 5. *They could do traffic control and crowd control for events, just like the explorers do 6. The testing could be more intense to help pick and choose who is really capable 7. There could be ranks, and in each rank come more responsibility and more requirements 8. **We would be like deputies and the “regular mounted patrol” would be like sheriffs, so the “deputies” could do grunt work be an assistant to the others 9. *They could help be security for school events: football, baseball, softball games, etc. 10. **This gives the kids a chance to volunteer in something to help out the community as well as gives kids the chance to do something with “law enforcement” who are looking into going into the field ; since there is no explores program. 11. *There could be only certain kids who are called out on calls depending on “rank” 12. **This is a way to keep kids off the streets; it gives them something constructive to do and gives them a chance to take a real responsibility 13. **Having a drill team that shows off the sheriff; he is in a squad car with lights and......

Teenagers and Sex: Should Birth Control Be Readily Available

...Teenagers and Sex: Should Birth Control Be Readily Available Teenagers and Sex: Should Birth Control Be Readily Available? Of the many controversies that have affected the United States in the past 100 years, birth control devices have been one of the more significant. Some common birth control devices are male and female condoms and the birth control pill. Both of these devices protect against pregnancy and the male and female condoms protect against sexually transmitted diseases (STD) and HIV. This arouses the question should teenagers be allowed to obtain these devices without parental consent. The answer is yes. Teenagers should be able to obtain birth control devices without their parents’ permission. There are countless reasons why birth control devices should be available to everyone. Among these reasons are the number and effects of teenage pregnancy, the right to privacy and living a disease free life. Every 31 seconds a teenager is reported pregnant and approximately 70 percent do not receive the proper care they need. When a teenager becomes pregnant a lot of problems follow soon after. Some of these problems are due to the teenager's physical immaturity, the fact that they are still growing and poor nutrition. Pregnant teenagers need extra care in the way of psychological and emotional support. Living in the United States we have the right to privacy. If teenagers choose to engage in sexual activity without making the situation known to their parents......

...The growth of online retail has been exponential in the last decade, consumers are shopping more and more online, and potential business owners are looking to the information highway which is the internet to launch their business into operation. The terms e-commerce and e-business get thrown around when we talk about online retail, however, the terms are quite different. Online retail for niche markets have grown as well, there is usually an online retailer that is taking advantage of every growing fad or new products that are introduced to our society. These niche online retailers sometimes have great success and sometimes they do not have success, but no matter what, we can always find multiple websites that appeal our specific hobbies or interest such as; comic books, fitness, golf, videogames, or really anything you can think of. The differences between e-commerce and e-business are subtle, but there are differences. According to, “Electronic commerce (also known as e-commerce) is the buying and selling of goods and services over the internet. E-commerce is one aspect of e-business.” The concept of e-commerce is simple, it is the buying and selling of goods online, it is the basis of e-business but e-business is a little more complex than that.

A Project Proposal for the Inventory Control System for Calculation and Ordering of Available and Processed Resources

...A PROJECT PROPOSAL FOR THE INVENTORY CONTROL SYSTEM FOR CALCULATION AND ORDERING OF AVAILABLE AND PROCESSED RESOURCES GROUP 9  SIMANT PUROHIT  BART MICZEK  AKSHAY THIRKATEH  BOB FAIGAO Executive Summary Our proposed project is a real time implementation of an inventory control system for an on-site corporate restaurant management and catering company. One such company is Guckenheimer ( which builds, staffs, and upkeeps corporate kitchens as well as provides catering services to corporate companies. This project is specific in that it applies to the dining domain of restaurants, but is flexible enough to be applied to many different kitchens and restaurants. In the case of Guckenheimer, they can use the software in their kitchens across the nation. The scope of this project will primarily focus on Guckenheimer’s kitchen and inventory located at the Groupon Chicago Office. Currently at Groupons kitchen, and the food industry in general, restaurant staff and managers are forced to keep track of inventory by hand. This means that they must count what they have sold and what they have left at the end of each day. They must also fill out order forms to be sent to vendors so that they can restock their inventory in preparation for the next week. This wastes valuable man hours and is a rather simple task to automate using our software. We propose a solution to this issue by developing software that keeps track of inventory in......
