"Why can't we sell brotherhood like soap?" This question -- first posed in the 1950s -- eventually gave birth to a new professional discipline: social marketing. Social marketing is the use of marketing techniques to influence people's behavior, for their own benefit (e.g., quitting smoking) and/or for the benefit of society (e.g., installing solar panels). This seminar will provide a broad overview and development of the practical skills involved in social marketing. Special attention will be paid to understanding the differences and the similarities between social marketing and public service communication campaigns. Through readings, discussion, and small-group work involving research, program development, and presentations, students will learn how to plan, develop, implement and monitor the real-time performance of social marketing campaigns.
