In 2019 we continued to work very closely with our Firebrand Friends; growing brand awareness, ROI results and audience reach - thanks for allowing us the pleasure and continuing to trust our expertise. Some key moments for some of those include:
Ministry of Social Development - YES. We WON! Taking out the Gold Good Award in Australia for Social Impact. This was a HUGE achievement for YES and such an incredible endorsement to our team and all participants in this programme. Exciting times ahead for YES with 2020 already lined up 3 more locations to roll out in the first half of the year!
Community Care Trust. Rebranded, repainted, rebadged, re-websited and repositioned to reflect the heart of its service and their client's stories captured in beautiful and thoughtful videos.
Fiordland Lobster aka Wild Legend. Another big year for exporting live lobster across to China, storytelling and trade shows. We also launched a brand new corporate site for FLC NZ...and the team gifted us beautiful fresh Lobster for our 10th Party!
Get Home Safe. Enormously positive year for GetHomeSafe and Firebrand in our 7+ year partnership. Formal setup of an Advisory Board (including Bex, Scott Mason and Bill Stalker), further investment in shareholding on our behalf and thousands of new subscribers, loads of new features and a jam packed pipeline of awesomeness for 2020!
Trade Tools Group. The year was packed full of improvements to the eComPlus Platform, extending channel reach and integrations with dropship suppliers. 2020 looks to be quite the exciting year for our fav "tool guys" with a heap more opportunities to get together and celebrate all the great things we do together.
Port Otago. Lots of digital transformation discussions and key projects either underway or completed this year with the team.
The Aotea Group. A very exciting year with this incredible group of companies located across New Zealand. Their new digital presence launched recently with rearticulated stories, videography, social channels, website and ongoing marketing services. Welcome to the "Firebrand Family" team Aotea. To celebrate we coordinated a "Cake Drop" across NZ...check out the video!
Audiology South. Another new "Firebrand Friend" for 2019. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with these super awesome (and incredibly community caring) Ear Health professionals. With eight locations - Dunedin, Mosgiel, Queenstown, Oamaru, Te Anau, Winton, Gore and Invercargill they have you covered!
Southern Electrical. More new "Firebrand Friends" we also got to indulge in some puppy love! Check out the newly articulated brand story, video our the locally owned and operated electrical specialists and the adorable dogs that are part of the team too!
Christine Garey - Dunedin City Council - Deputy Mayor. With her grace, style and alignment of our values, we were very proud to provide Campaign Management services to Chris. 🙌
So many other launches, relaunches, rebrands and campaigns it's quite something to reflect on! Including: Just Essence, Race Douglas Burke, Mild Red, Silver Fern Farms Farmer Portal, Kerry Fenton Johns, Habitat Restorations Aotearoa, Locavore, Euromarque x5 new websites! Mike Sowman Design (yahoo 5 years later!), Dr Pam Jackson, JobDun and many many others!
Thank you to everyone for an incredibly fun year. 🙌
