NextUp

Franklin Rae supported with raising the profile of NextUp, the world’s only stand-up comedy SVOD service to help it secure additional funding in order to meet expand its offering of original content and build its subscription numbers.

Since launch, NextUp has achieved its subscriber targets receiving 5-star average ratings across Android and iOS stores and is available worldwide via web browsers and mobile apps. The service is also distributed on Amazon Channels in the UK, and US, and selected stand-up specials have been featured on Virgin Atlantic’s in-flight entertainment offering.

The focus of the PR activity was around securing coverage in key trade press to position NextUP as a worthwhile investment and viable business in the SVoD industry. To this end Franklin Rae worked closely with its media contacts to place news on the opening of new rounds of funding.

Coverage was secured in domestic and international trade press, including Deadline Hollywood, Worldscreen, TBI and Rapid TV News. Results of its investment round include overfunding at 111% via the online equity investing platform SyndicateRoom.

Any business is only as good as its people, and through a structured programme of comment, opinion, speaking opportunities and other channels, we can shine a spotlight on that talent.

From boosting staff morale to reassuring clients that the people working on their account are at the forefront of their field, making your people famous has numerous distinct benefits, many of which are not always obvious. Profiling can also help open doors and reignite conversations that can lead to new business.

EMP

Spanning opinion articles, press briefings, news announcements, features and reactive opportunities, Franklin Rae developed a thought leadership and market support programme for trade press showcasing EMP’s insights and expertise on topics spanning from EPG brokerage to post Brexit broadcast regulations, as well as how to manage highly technical projects.

With such a varied slate of topics to cover, ensuring consistency in tone of voice and key messaging was critical in order to maintain a PR presence which aligned with EMP’s core business objectives, to drive enquiries and ultimately increase company revenue. As such, Franklin Rae’s strategy was to build a plan around EMP’s EPG brokering services. This was especially effective due to EPG trading having enjoyed its busiest ever year. The campaign also deployed other topical discussion topics to highlight the breadth of skills, knowledge and offering within EMP’s operation.

Targeted key trade publications spanned domestic and international outlets in the broadcast industry, media & marketing outlets and business press, alongside national consumer press for relevant topics such as issues relating to Brexit and broadcasting.

Campaign highlights included articles secured in City AM, Broadcast Magazine, and Management Today. In addition, press briefings were secured with target journalists from CNBC, Digiday, Prensario, CBS and Broadcast Intelligence.
