Our brief was to raise the profile of this eco-friendly, fresh fruit ice lolly company. OllyLolly was a relatively new wholesale business, ripe for a sprinkling of PR magic & energetic injection of marketing. Our aim was to build an awareness of the brand with both consumers & B2B.
We used a strategic blend of traditional media relations and social media engagement to boost OllyLolly’s brand. Our press campaign highlighted the clients plastic free ethos, selection for Mitch Tonks Rockfish Restaurants, selling to A-listers at Glastonbury and debuting lollies at London’s Old Vic Theatre.
As a direct result of the PR campaign an impressive number of enquiries led to increased business and sharp increase in local and national awareness of the brand. Coverage for OllyLolly was secured in Manor Magazine, Devon Life Magazine, Coast Magazine, The Herald, WMN, Crumbs Magazine, Vegan News and Muddy Stilettos Devon amongst others.
