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.”

We’re thrilled to have been appointed by Home-Start UK to run their upcoming Facebook advertising campaign.

As specialists in the charitable and social change sector, we’ve been chosen by Home-Start to create a campaign that promotes their vital work and generates donations to help make a difference to more children’s lives across the country.

Home-Start is a local community network of trained volunteers who help families facing challenging times and struggles such as post-natal depression, isolation, physical health problems and bereavement. Across the UK, there are over 200 Home-Starts in 71% of local authority areas who work to transform the lives of over 56,000 children.

Our Facebook marketing campaign aims to reach out to the charity’s core audiences and encourage those who may need additional help, or those who may be aware of someone that does, to engage with the cause. Our campaign strategy also focuses on driving donations, with individuals receiving an ongoing stewardship plan designed to develop the relationship with Home-Start and maximise long term support.

We understand that in order to generate maximum impact and successfully inform future communications, it is crucial for such campaigns to gain actionable insights and learnings. Our knowledge and experience have allowed us to work with multiple leading charities, and connect them with large numbers of supporters to secure additional funding.
