SERVING UP INNOVATION

When The Grounds of Alexandria approached us, they were particularly keen to increase the frequency of media coverage, as their previous PR agency under-delivered in this area. McKell Media managed a 16-month campaign which integrated the key pillars of this carefully-curated venue, including food, interiors, entrepreneurship and styling. We constantly developed creative and innovative approaches to story angles and used a range of content such as recipes, expert tips, thought leadership and sharing the brand’s constantly innovating story. This approach and the high-quality content resulted in some stellar coverage.

Over 16 months, McKell Media generated 171 pieces of quality coverage across several top-tier print and online food, hospitality, business, lifestyle and health publications, as well as TV, with a combined reach of over 50 million people. We averaged  9 placements per month, well above our original KPI of 4. Highlights included:
