Success stories:Awareness Campaigns TQ Construction:
Objective: To heighten visibility and profile for the home renovation company.
Plan: Through a targeted media relations and strategic marketing campaign, Curve raised the profile of TQ through distribution of monthly press releases coupled with targeted pitches. Curve also developed and implemented alliances with high profiled events, negotiating promotional opportunities to highlight the company.
Results: Garnered coverage in a wide range of publications and outlets including the Vancouver Sun and Global TV.
Event Management British Columbia & Yukon Newspapers Association:
Objective: To maximize attendance and participation by members of the BCYCNA.
Plan: To re-invigorate the flagging organization by establishing the annual awards gala as the year’s most anticipated industry event.
Results: Curve re-invented the awards as a gala evening, boosting attendance to a record of 75% membership participation. Curve’s event management savvy led to record numbers of registration vouchers redeemed, increased member participation, a record number of award entries, increased association revenue, and a phenomenal sponsorship support.
Public Relations - Body Beautiful:
Objective: To execute an exciting publicity campaign which will introduce consumers to their product the Universal Contour Wrap.
Plan: Through targeted pitching and innovative story hooks, Curve introduced BC consumers and spas to Body Beautiful’s unique total body wrap, which tightens skin and removes inches. Curve pitched across a variety of media, convincing multiple journalists and media personalities to undergo the wrap (frequently on-air).
Results: The campaign quickly escalated from a BC grassroots push to national coverage on ET Canada, as well as presence in the gifting suite at the 2008 Emmy Awards. Following the Emmys renowned L.A. spa Ole Henriksen integrated the wrap into its offerings. The treatment has received coverage in such high profile publications as In Style, Fashion Magazine, Flare Magazine, Elle Canada, and US Weekly. Curve recently established another coupe for the product, when we secured its presence as the Title Beauty Sponsor at the 2009 Oscars Ceremony. The product’s presence at the ceremonies garnered intercontinental coverage for the brand in a variety of print, television and online outlets.
Online Media Ballet BC:
Objective: In the absence of marketing dollars and the pending bankruptcy of the company, Curve utilized social media and rallied the dance community to purchase tickets and save the ballet.
Plan: Curve Communications was responsible for coordinating the marketing and public relations campaign for Ballet BC after the Company announced a major reorganization on November 25, 2008. Despite the lack of advertising available and a reduced ability to implement traditional marketing techniques, Curve was able to devise a unique grassroots campaign to bolster awareness for the Nutcracker. This included making the most of alternative media opportunities including online blogs with content generated from Ballet BC dancers, Facebook groups, and YouTube.
Results: Ultimately the Company’s presentation of the Nutcracker went on to sell roughly 14,000 tickets, exceeding its sales goal by 156% and surpassing the previous year’s revenue from the Nutcracker by more than $100,000. This support was demonstrated through individual acts as well, such as letters to Ballet BC’s Board and dancers, stories of personal donations, as well as online support groups, fundraisers, and promotional opportunities for the ballet. Perhaps the greatest measure of success was the return of Ballet BC dancers and staff to their studios on January 12, 2009.
