Case Study #1:
Land O’Lakes Mother’s Day Giveaway

Company: Colle+McVoy / Exponent PR

For the Land O’Lakes Mother’s Day giveaway, we leveraged social media in a seasonal and heartfelt way to engage with our target audience on Facebook, where we knew they spent the most time gathering and sharing information. Our client saw this program as a success as it received an overwhelmingly positive reaction from consumers. The program also boosted overall page engagement and further expanded the brand’s audience.

Case Study #3:
Leveraging Internal Experts

Company: Thomson Reuters

To increase the value of our primary corporate marketing blog, we transitioned from a product focused content strategy to a content marketing model. This required the recruitment and training of our internal subject matter experts to serve as blog contributors and the eviction of marketers from the blog. This transition was challenging, but resulted in a 277% increase in blog traffic in the first six months and a 240% increase in outbound traffic from the blog to our ecommerce and other online properties over 18 months.
