The Drum Recommends Digital Awards Finalist 2019
Fantastic news! We’re very pleased to announce that RH have been nominated for a record number of Drum Recommends Digital Awards in 2019.

We’ll be in the mix for four categories this year:

  • Online Media Buying
  • Online Advertising
  • Optimisation and Conversion
  • Online Analytics and Measurables

We love the Drum Recommends Awards as they are based purely on personal ratings – meaning they are a great reflection on the work and relationships we build with clients.

This is the most nominations RH have ever received at the Recommends Awards to date, having been shortlisted in 2017 and 2018 too. In addition, earlier this year, RH won the prestigious Media Buying Award.

Head of Digital, Tom Ritchie, said:

“It’s been another busy year for the digital team at RH. We have continued to enhance our service offering by introducing innovative approaches to digital marketing, achieving Facebook Marketing Partner status, and starting work with some great new clients. The team achieved record results, especially during the busy Clearing period for our Higher Education clients and we’re excited to be growing the digital team further for 2020. It’s great to cap-off 2019 with another chance at silverware”.

A big thank to all our wonderful clients for rating RH so highly.

We’ll be crossing our fingers and eagerly awaiting news of the winners at the awards celebration of 3 December.

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve won the contract to work with Bristol Zoological Society and will be delivering campaigns for Bristol Zoo Gardens and the Wild Place Project!

We’ll be using our experience in the travel and tourism sector to manage the Summer and Autumn promotional campaigns for the Zoo and their sister site, the Wild Place Project. The decision comes off the back of the highly successful Easter and May Bank Holiday multi-media campaigns we recently delivered, in which we increased ticket sales on both sites by an average of 66%.

Bristol Zoo Group is the fifth oldest zoo in the world, first opening its doors to the public in 1836, and is home to more than 9,500 animals. The newer wildlife conservation park, the Wild Place Project, opened in 2013, and attracts over 100,000 visitors every year. The family-friendly attractions give visitors the opportunity to get close to animals from across the world, provide educational experiences and encourage sustainable behaviours.

 

“We’re hugely proud to be working with the Bristol Zoological Society on these exciting campaigns,” said Client Director, Mitch Floyd-Walker. “As well as having two fantastic attractions they’re also a great team of people who really appreciate the full media spectrum, so we’re looking forward to working closely with them.”

Want to know how to reduce your food waste? Our latest campaign with Recycle Devon can help you do just that!

To encourage residents in Devon to reduce food waste by making the most out of their fridge or freezer, RH is running an incentivised campaign where residents have the opportunity to receive a Free Love Food Hate Waste box full of helpful tools, tips and tricks on how to prevent food waste by solving an interactive puzzle.

This bespoke puzzle can be solved by clicking on the tiles, which contain imagery of regularly stored food items, and sliding them into the correct order they should be stored in the fridge. Not only is the puzzle informative but it also provides an additional opportunity for measurable engagement, which can be utilised by Recycle Devon to calculate the approx. tonnage of food being removed from the waste disposal system.

The campaign features three short films rewinding the decaying of potatoes, strawberries and bread and enjoys a cross-channel approach, using a combination of radio, strategically placed 6 sheets in the county as well as digital activity to encourage the residents to try and solve the “Big Chill challenge” and save a massive £700 a year.

The campaign is running until the end of October so why not visit Recycle Devon and tell food waste where to go!

Weston Park, the beautiful stately home and gardens on the Shropshire, Staffordshire border is perhaps best known for hosting the V-Festival and prestigious events like the G8 Leader’s Conference.

But there’s much more to it than that: weddings, parties, corporate events, family days out, art exhibitions and fantastic local food and drink.

With everything Weston Park offers a new website was needed, to properly showcase this unique property.

After already working with Weston on promotional print pieces, we were pleased to be given the brief to design and build the new site.

In answer, we have produced an image led site, featuring new photography, that is both aspirational and engaging with much more emphasis on social media.
