How To Drive Advertising Agency PR – As In Getting More Fame
Imagine that your advertising agency is so unique, so well positioned, so good at messaging, so unignorable that it stands so far out from the vast pack of other agencies that your agency gets press and praise from Advertising Age, ADWEEK, The Drum, Marketing Week, Fast Company, and Forbes. And the trade press that your future clients read.
Do it and you’ve hit the advertising agency PR jackpot. A jackpot that gets attention. This is way cool since, in New York alone, WINMO says that there are over 1,500 advertising agency options. And your agency is just one of them and needs to be found – not easy. PR helps getting found. I know, I know you know this. But… are you getting found?
Now imagine the New York wine market where the New York Daily News estimates that wine buyers have themselves over 1,500 wine store options to choose from. A similar marketing and advertising clutter problem to the agency world.
How Orange Wine Kicks It
I was in New York’s lower east side this month and stumbled upon the wine shop Orange Glou. A shop that is so unique, so well positioned, so unignorable that it stands out from the vast pack of other wine shops. In fact, so special that they have received praise from The New York Times, Saveur, Food & Wine, Punch, Money, and Fortune. Even local New York TV (see the video below.)
From The New York Times:
In November 2019, Doreen Winkler started selling orange wines by subscription. Its success led her to open a wine shop specializing in the wines, which are white wines given enough skin contact to add a ruddy blush to the color. Orange Glou, the shop, is opening Friday with 100 different wines from many regions priced from $19 to $99. She points out that these “exciting” orange wines tend to be low in alcohol and great with food. Her inventory also includes some pet-nat bubbles. She said her audience tends to skew younger, under 50, and she’s pleased that chefs are among her fans.
Why Wine And Advertising Agency PR?
Why point out the success of Doreen and Orange Glou? Because Doreen has accomplished what many advertising agencies seek. She has a specialized passion; is a recognized expert; knows how to market her product; gets national attention and is clearly an expert at knowing how to drive PR.
Orange Glou’s press page has some, understatement, cool publications that help drive Orange Glou awareness.
