Client Successes

E10 Marketing Campaign gains acceptance

Phillips Group worked closely with the Queensland Government to develop and rollout a ethanol marketing campaign throughout the State. The +e campaign was designed to educate motorists about the benefits of ethanol-blended fuel.

The communication strategy was rolled out through Queensland on a staged basis through point-of-sale materials at fuel retail outlets and was supported by promotional, media and advertising campaigns. These campaigns were very successful in launching the E10 brand, boosting ethanol sales and creating awareness within the community, media and other stakeholders of the benefits of ethanol blended fuels.

Market Intelligence

More than ever, Australia’s media landscape and composition is providing unique opportunities for communication companies. And Phillips Group is making the most of these trends.

Australian media ownership has been described as one of the world’s most concentrated, with a very small number of proprietors controlling the nation’s mass media. For example, 11 of the 12 capital city daily newspapers in Australia are owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation or John Fairfax Holdings.

As syndication and news-sharing grows between affiliated media outlets, the number of journalists decreases, creating a need for top quality news and events provided by communication companies.

Combine this with the rising number of 24/7 online media outlets and the rapidly expanding social media world incorporating twitter, blogging, flickr, youtube and podcasting, and the opportunities for harnessing information avenues for client products, events or projects are virtually endless.

With Australians listed as one of the highest users of facebook in the world, it is increasingly vital to stay up to date with - and deliver - social media opportunities to clients.

By fostering existing, and building new, relationships with key journalists and providing media-friendly events and targeted communication, Phillips Group client success rates continue to increase.
