Campaigns we've worked on
MITSUBISHI (MHIE) – Accelerating speed to market
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Europe is a global leader in air conditioning and heat pumps. Wanting to launch a new generation of products, the Q-Ton™ CO2 heat pump, they asked us to identify the UK demand hot-spots for CO2 heat pumps by prospect sector and account. Using online needs analyses followed up by telemarketing we created sector profiles highlighting sector needs, tailored propositions to market and account prospects most likely to switch for the internal sales teams.

MADE IN BRITAIN – Awareness + reputation
The Board of the Made in Britain campaign commissioned us to build awareness of the campaign within the national manufacturing community. Working as their virtual social media and PR team, we developed and implemented a social media strategy to develop new business by recruiting manufacturers to join the campaign. Through the use of #madeinbritainhour on twitter, we have created a vocal, connected, supportive community of UK manufacturers from all industries. This has given wide reach to the campaign by word of mouth referrals, very cost efficiently, for this not for profit organisation.
