CEO James McKinney approached Beautiful Planning Marketing & PR as he needed a solid Mobile App PR campaign for the roll out. The app was to roll out within the pin point targeted area of Long Beach California. The company had put a strong push behind the branding of its mascot Smiley and wanted messaging to resonate as fun and friendly similar to the style of BPM-PR. The goal of the Mobile App PR project was to maximize exposure within its home town and provide the company with enough user data to be well informed on how and when to roll out the mobile application to various cities across the US. The company retained Beautiful Planning Marketing & PR for a 6 month contract that included base Southern California Public Relations and a Small Social Media Push.
Our Mobile App PR solution for SimpleDeal was to build a solid foundation for their campaign with a strong media mix. The Long Beach California area press push targeted a mix of technology media for online digital, restaurant magazines, California morning shows, long beach newspapers and more. Beautiful Planning Marketing & PR worked with Simple Deal to carve out strong messaging surrounding saving the restaurant industry by putting dollar back in to the pockets of the community and positioning SimpleDeal as the Anti Groupon who often takes 50% of an already discounted profit. The campaign included a morning show segment on Good Day Sacramento for App of The week, CEO features, Wall Street Journal Coverage, Mobile application spotlights, restaurant trade outlets both online digital and print Q&A’s and was a tremendous Long Beach California success. BPM-PR’s solution was coupled with the social media section of promoting with Facebook Ad spend, and pushing steady content via Facebook and Twitter. Content surrounded opening games, St. Patricks day, spotlighted places to eat in Long Beach that happened to be running spectacular deals and more.
