STRATEGY

Success starts with an integrated strategy and plan based on solid insight. We have experts in PR strategy, brand strategy, digital strategy, sponsorship strategy and CSI strategy. We can further co-ordinate the market research, perceptions audits and communications audits necessary to provide the required insight.

PUBLIC RELATIONS

Brand storytellers
Content is a crucial component of any campaign, sorting the successful brands from those that flounder. We package the message you need to convey in a way that resonates with the right customers - filtering out the clutter. Your stories express the values of your brand and help your customers to relate to your company. A story can communicate who you are and inspire people with your passion, purpose and commitment to the customer’s experience.

Media relations
We have achieved phenomenal media coverage for our clients over the years and our diverse client experience has given us strong media connections across a diverse range of media, bloggers and influencers.  We’re strategic and proactive about leveraging opportunities across multiple platforms with results as the driving force.  We’ll get your story out there and provide clear return on investment (ROI).

Strategic partnerships
This is one of our great passions! It is such a great way to get your brand profile raised in areas where you may be looking to tap into new markets and audiences. There are many ways of getting noticed, but with our extensive network as well as national and international experience we will source the right partnership for you and your brand. We will always be innovative, but will ensure that all partnerships will be mutually beneficial to any involved partners.

Creative B2C Campaigns
Generating word of mouth for your brand and products by getting consumers to actively engage with your brand is a key component to any communications campaign. Whether it is something once off and high impact or a series of activations slowly building up engagement, we will make sure that there is traction with your brand and your desired target audience.
