Our #CrackingClientCoverage for June!

Posted by LolaTagged ,

Every month we compile a few of our favourite #CrackingClientCoverage and social success stories – here are our picks for June.

City Year

Social mobility has been in the news this month with the report from the Social Mobility Commission. One of our clients, City Year UK, addresses the issue of social mobility head-on through their programme of placing volunteers in schools in deprived areas. On the back of this report, we secured two thought leadership pieces for Sophie Livingstone, the Chief Executive of City Year in The Independent and The Times Educational Supplement.

This fantastic City A.M. piece came at the beginning of Learning at Work Week, placing City Year UK at the forefront of volunteering opportunities for young people in the UK. City A.M. continued to cover the story the next day as well!

The fight for fair probate

Probate. Perhaps not something you’re overly familiar with, but you may have noticed it’s been hitting the headlines recently, since the Government tried to push through proposals to significantly increase fees. For the past few months, it’s been keeping the Stand team very busy.

The client

SFE (Solicitors for the Elderly) is an independent, national membership of lawyers who provide specialist legal advice for older and vulnerable people, their families and carers. When it comes to older client law, SFE is the gold standard.

The probate debate

Probate is something most of us will have to deal with at some point in our lives. A grant of probate is an official document issued by the court, which allows family and loved ones to process estates and access the money and assets left to them by someone who has passed away.

After an excellent April of #CrackingClientCoverage here are our highlights for the month!

The Maiden Factor

BEST BROADCAST SPREAD OF APRIL 2017

This April saw the return to the UK of Maiden, the yacht skippered by Tracy Edwards MBE and her all-female crew in the 1989/90 Whitbread Round the World Race.

After a year-long restoration in Southampton, Maiden will sail again as an ambassador for The Maiden Factor, fundraising for girls’ access to education across the globe.

We launched The Maiden Factor with a bang – and secured national broadcast coverage on BBC Breakfast, BBC News at One, The One Show, Sky News and there is still more to come… watch this space.

After an amazing start to the year, February has proved to be another successful month full of #CrackingClientCoverage and other exciting projects! Here are some of our favourite bits.

moneycorp

It’s been a busy month on the moneycorp account and one area we’ve seen particular success is on Twitter. In February, we achieved a record 450 new followers in just the one month. With a much more hands-on approach to this social platform in 2017 we are seeing incredible results already – December saw 113 new followers, whereas January received 295, and last month we were heading towards 500! With a winning combination of travel inspiration and engaging news stories, we are excited to keep up this pace on moneycorp’s social media in March.

2016 was quite a year… Crazy decisions aside, it was a fantastic year for Stand Agency and we are so proud of the results we achieved for our clients we thought we’d take a little time to reflect on just a few of our favourite bits of coverage…

Moneycorp
