Dr. Cruz wanted her message to specifically reach health enthusiasts, middle-aged women, and seniors and the placements we secured directly target this audience. Some of the media placements we secured include print placements in nationally recognized magazines like FIRST for Women, Healthy Living, and she is now a regular contributor and “go to holistic” for Bustle!

04. What We Did

For this campaign, we built a media list of over 5000 contacts on the national and local level in radio, print, and TV. The media list targeted reviewers, journalists, and editors that specifically cover women’s health, holistic lifestyle, senior interest, alternative medicine, dietary supplements/vitamins, and nutrition. The story was framed in a variety of different ways to appeal to each media type. For print outlets, the pitch was an explicit request for product reviews. One was targeted towards parents looking to have a healthy and holistic lifestyle, For radio and TV, we pitched Dr. Cruz as an expert providing medical advice.

Media Contact List Example

We took advantage of holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, and New Year’s, framing Cruz and her son as health experts providing advice on healthy eating.

To get these stories in front of the media, we reached out through several channels of communication. We sent HTML eblasts, we created and sent physical Media Mailers, we pitched by phone and individualized email, and we also reached out on social media.

Here are a few of the headlines and pitches we wrote for this campaign:

05. Why This Campaign Worked

One reason this campaign was so successful, is because we angled the story to fit in with current events. Since the holidays and the new year are especially hot for health stories, we pitched Dr. Cruz as an expert commenting on diet and nutrition. The media was already looking for stories related to health and wellness and we served them exactly what they needed at exactly the right time.

06. What The Client Said

“My partner and I run a gastroenterology medical practice and we came to Farrow Communications to promote an organic dietary supplement, as well as the practice. After just 1 campaign, we received a total of 27 media placements including a feature in AARP and another in Healthy Living Magazine which is the exact audience we were looking for! The Farrow Communications team was friendly, professional and efficient. I recommend them to anyone trying to market a product or a business.”
