VisitScotland — Braw Beginnings
We were engaged by VisitScotland to create a digital PR campaign that would generate high authority links to their site which would drive traffic and boost SEO rankings as part of their wider ‘Year of Stories’ project.
Our response was to create Braw Beginnings, which involved translating the first line of some of the most famous novels; celebrating the Scots language along with iconic literature that had drawn inspiration from Scotland.
We achieved 197 links from high authority sites: as the campaign became VisitScotland's most successful outreach campaign to date.
Wealthify — Silver Spoon
Wealthify wanted us to create a campaign that would drive traffic to their site by generating high authority links. We developed a campaign called Silver Spoon — a thought-provoking piece of research delving into the challenges faced by parents when it comes to saving for their children’s futures — a hot topic during a cost of living crisis.
We knew our surprising findings would appeal to a wide range of top tier publications as well as niche and regional media. This campaign has smashed all the objectives set and continues to do so, as we find new opportunities to showcase the research.
