strategic communication, PR, media promotion

The “Strongest in Romania – Certifying Your Economic Force” campaign has enjoyed huge media coverage. The first stage, held in November, has generated over 50 articles in central, regional and local publications. In total, we recorded over 120 free appearances on TV, online and print in about four months, with a rate card value of more than 200,000 euros.

The strategy was to create topics of interest for journalists and public opinion, starting from the information provided by the client – following discussions about this and transforming it into press releases.

Before making the campaign, we identified target, media channels and tactics in order to achieve our goals.
