Implementation Plans – Whether you work in the aerospace, defense-mil, public or private sector(s), your implementation plan should be an intelligence-backed document that effectively dictates the actions and methods you’ll need to successfully drive your strategy from start to finish. Our media strategists help you with your implementation plans by developing a work breakdown structure and critical path method for the most efficient handling of tasks. From there, we can improve your business by hosting weekly or monthly planning sessions, developing real-time editorial or campaign calendars, conducting risk assessments, assisting in delegating tasks to leadership, or providing any other deliverables you may need.

We work with experience, tact, and accuracy, which can increase your paid and organic engagement, produce more comments, improve result metrics, and increase your overall channel optimization.
Content Development – Aerospace and defense contractors spend years shaping their corporate identity, so in our approach to creative development, we craft every project with your corporate identity in mind to discover which content form will heighten your brand’s impact the most. Focused Image’s award-winning content creators design with a focus, attribute their sources accurately, and adequately cite relevant subject matter experts (SMEs). When we draft content, we always finalize with client input and any additional considerations to confidently ensure high-quality content throughout the entirety of a project.

Website and Multimedia Development – Keeping your digital footprint in shape with your target value design is critical to reaching your audience with the right message and the right tone at the correct time. In 2021, a site with no social interactivity, fresh content, or new ideas is a site that will deliver minimal effectiveness. Today’s audience demands executive viewpoints, facts from subject matter experts, smart accessibility through all search and mobile platforms, and enough information to make informed decisions about your brand if they so choose. The digital strategists at Focused Image will map out specific digital and interactive strategies that get right to the core of your business, accentuating recent contract wins or mergers with tact, and engaging the company brand in the defense and commercial sectors.
