    We achieved coverage on multiple major TV outlets; BBC 1, BBC News, ITV 1, 5 News and Sky News in addition to stand-out radio coverage on BBC Radio1s Newsbeat and nationwide commercial coverage via Sky News Radio.


    McDonalds replaced menu boards in all its 1,200 restaurants with new boards displaying the calorie-content of each item on the menu. This coincided with the next phase of the Governments Public Health Responsibility Deal, which was revealed by Public Health Minister Anne Milton.

    The Responsibility Deal was launched in March 2011 with the aim of improving the publics health by signing up fast-food and other chain restaurants to provide calorie and other nutrition information on menus and menu boards.

    We worked with McDonalds to ensure the event received extensive broadcast coverage on air and online.

    Total coverage across both phases comprised 5 items of TV including Daybreak, BBC Breakfast and the BBC News channel, 39 items of radio coverage (including BBC South West, BBC Manchester, BBC Leeds, BBC Sussex & Surrey) and 11 items of online coverage including The Independent.


    Kids Closer to Nature is a grants programme backed by FMCG brand Arla Foods. The scheme encouraged schools, youth groups and community projects around the UK to submit their applications for grants of up to 1,500 to build everything from vegetable patches to wildlife gardens. The campaign was supported by a dedicated microsite where grants were registered and downloadable packs were available for schools and parents.


    markettiers4dc was enlisted to generate broadcast coverage around the launch of the campaign and then for a second phase of activity when the shortlisted projects were announced. Both featured campaign ambassador Chris Packham. The launch phase was supported by key statistics from Arlas research report as a hook for broadcast interviews, with results showing that children spent twice as long playing indoors as they do outdoors. This provided a perfect angle to encourage people to go online to get fun ideas for playing outside and to apply for grants to help their local school or youth group do the same. Chris took part in a series of back to back radio interviews following a live TV appearance on Daybreak. Following the studio session, Chris fronted a live and interactive WebTV show discussing the campaign and the benefits of getting kids outdoors this was syndicated to a number of key websites to encourage further traffic to the campaign microsite.

    Arla received over 650 applications for grants following the call to action and nine winners were eventually chosen from across the UK. markettiers4dc mined the research report for fresh and salient hooks to give a further editorial platform for the winners announcement to media. Working alongside representatives of the winning projects, Chris Packham revealed the winners initially in a live interview with BBC Breakfast from the winning project in Salford, and thereafter from a studio in Manchester to radio stations across the country.

    markettiers4dc consulted with the Special K team and recommended two phases of online outreach, prior to and after London Fashion Weekend. Competitions to win tickets to London Fashion Weekend and following the event, to win House of Fraser vouchers positioned Special K as a positive influence on womens experiences of fashion, both high end and on the high street. Brix Smith-Start was enlisted to star in the video feature to drive consumer interest and lend her credibility in fashion to Special K brand messaging, which featured throughout the video. Content was placed on targeted womens lifestyle and magazine sites to align the brand with the world of fashion.


    Targeted coverage delivered on Grazia, More!, Marie Claire, The Sun and The Independent

    All interviews were upbeat and on brand with key messages delivered in every interview. Highlights of the outside broadcast from the Dorchester included interviews with BBC 6 Music, Heart Kent and BBC Shropshire. The resulting coverage reaching a potential audience of over 3.2 million.

    PG tips were launching their how do you describe the taste? campaign, aiming to position the brand as experts in tea and taste, whilst encouraging consumers to submit their descriptions of the taste of tea to the PG tips website.


    markettiers4dc managed and maximised all radio coverage opportunities by setting up an outside broadcast during a tasting event being held at the Dorchester Hotel. Consumer research had been conducted to help build an editorial narrative to support the commercial nature of the launch, which highlighted the nations inability to find the right words to describe the taste of our national drink. The campaign spokespeople were Monkey and Al (AKA Johnny Vegas and Ben Miller) who proved extremely popular with station producers and presenters alike. Our role was to manage that popularity and ensure positive delivery of key messages in every interview.

    The content has been incredibly well received by third party sites and in social media. The WebTV and video assets, which have collectively been viewed more than 53,000 times (more than 98% of views from within the UK) in the first month of being live, effectively communicated the variety and affordability of Bordeaux wine. They also highlighted some of the more unusual activities that can be experienced in the region, specifically the Marathon du Medoc, Ouvre la Voix and Ecole du Vin.


    We worked with The Conseil Interprofessionnel du Vin de Bordeaux (CIVB) to produce a series of short videos with the comedian Dom Joly. The campaign aimed to inform and enthuse consumers about Bordeaux Wines, by showcasing its products and challenge some of the popular misconceptions that wine from Bordeaux is expensive and exclusively red.


    Well known for his love of wine and travel, the French speaking Dom was a natural choice for the partnership. This was reinforced by his inclusion in the Twitter 100 which highlighted how his social media influence could be leveraged to the benefit of aggregating the planned content.

    During a three day trip to the region, pre scripted and spontaneous content was filmed with Dom taking a course at the Ecole du Vin (Bordeauxs wine school), watching the Marathon du Mdoc (a 26 mile fancy dress race through the vineyards) and competing in the Ouvre la Voix (an annual scream-off where he was able to put his famous HELLO to the test against the local champion).

    The campaign was launched with a live, interactive WebTV show, giving wine and travel enthusiasts the opportunity to hear about the trip, see exclusive content for the first time and put their questions to Dom.

    Extensive coverage across the BBC and commercial radio networks including Sky Sports News, talkSPORT, BBC 5Live and LBC.

    Online coverage included The Sun, Independent, Daily Express, Metro and several key parenting and lifestyle sites.

    Social media channels were also a key route to target audiences, with Twitter outreach in excess of 77,000 people.


    To reinforce its position as a family-friendly brand, Ocado, the online supermarket, developed a campaign around changes to the UKs paternity laws. Former tennis player Greg Rusedski was enlisted to front the campaign which coincided with both Fathers Day and the run-up to Wimbledon, providing relevant and timely calendar hooks.


    To create story angles for the media and provide a springboard for further discussion around the changes to paternity laws we commissioned consumer research to explore the UKs thoughts on the topic.

    Using the research findings as the key hook, we secured a series of radio interviews with dad-of-two, Greg, who added further insight into the research and talked about his own experiences.

    We also produced a live and interactive web TV show from the markettiers4dc studio. Greg took part in the show alongside Rob Williams of the Fatherhood Institute and viewers were able to send in their questions and comments to be answered live on-air.

    Finally, to provide a variety of engaging content for online media owners, we produced a short video interview with Greg.

    The campaign generated more than 150 items of radio coverage with highlights including nationwide distribution across the commercial network with Sky News Radio. The story also received significant coverage across the BBC network with interviews on 26 regional stations including BBC Radio WM, BBC Stoke, BBC Radio Kent and BBC Radio Solent.


    Legendary British rock star Noddy Holder was appointed as King of the Sizzle to help the nation celebrate the legendary British banger.

    The annual campaign aims to raise awareness of the versatility of British sausages, and challenges butchers and chefs up and down the country to submit their own Star Sausage recipes.


    To maximise Noddys limited availability and generate maximum coverage, we carried out a phased broadcast campaign. The first radio interview session announced Noddy as the King of the Sizzle and then a second campaign specifically promoted the regional sausage competition.

    Radio highlights included coverage across Sky News Radio, LBC 97.3, BRMB, Kerrang, Key 103, Radio City and Metro Radio. We placed the video feature on a number of key titles and social media platforms online including The Independent,, The Express and The Hub.


    Christmas can be a stressful time of year, with the shopping, cooking, cleaning and decorating often being left to women. So for the festive season, Red Tractor Beef and Lamb urged the nations men to step into the kitchen and Give the Bird a Break!

    With the help of Strictly star and cricketer Darren Gough, a virtual cooking school was launched to tempt men into the kitchen and inspire them with some men-proof beef and lamb recipes.


    We produced a series of videos for the Red Tractor Beef and Lamb virtual cookery school, which featured recipes, tips and demonstrations. The videos had to be engaging and editorially balanced to ensure that we could place them on relevant third party websites to drive further views.

    To provide context for Darren to discuss the cooking school on radio and give stations crucial regional content, we commissioned consumer research to uncover male and female habits towards Christmas preparation. We also organised a series of radio competitions to offer consumers the chance to win cooking utensils allowing them to create their own culinary delights and encourage them to visit the virtual cookery school. This offered a very effective route to achieve a high level of branding within editorial air-time.
