Challenge

As the name suggests, Rebel Business School is a Queen’s Enterprise award-winning organisation that sets out to inspire adults to setting up their own businesses in unconventional ways. Their ethos is to encourage people to have the belief that you don’t need loans, assets to start a business. What you need is an idea and fundamental skills that anyone can learn – in a fun way.

Rebel Business School were bringing their virtual roadshow (during the pandemic) to Newcastle and Gateshead and needed a PR agency with good regional knowledge and connections in the community to raise awareness and drive sign ups for their course.     

Approach

As straightforward as this brief sounds, it was not easy. We had the connections in the communities and the local councils, we knew who their audiences were, and we had the story and brand assets. What we needed to do was to raise awareness of who Rebel Business School were, garner interest in their courses and  inspire belief that people really can turn ideas into a business venture without the burden of loans or financial pressure – in 4 weeks!   

Firstly we made contact with all our connections in the local communities who we knew were trusted by and therefore had an influence over residents in their community. We collaborated with them and the local councils to deliver a vast social media campaign, which included tapping into community groups on Facebook, running social ads and issuing organic content through our partners.

We then engaged the local business community who we knew had started their business from nothing and who Rebel Business School’s audiences could relate to.  Part of this collaboration was to raise awareness of the opportunity on LinkedIn and Twitter via a video produced by our friends at The Social Co.    

Results

  • The campaign generated the largest number of sign ups they had seen for their courses in the shortest time

  • We engaged with residential, business and council communities to share the message 

  • Secured regional coverage

Influencers

Anyone who has an influence over your target audience is an influencer. Whether influential in business, sport, leisure or celebrity circles we have an enviable track record of matchmaking those influencers with your brand. An influencer only has influence if the content they’re sharing or conversations they are having is relevant to what their audiences want to see and hear, which is why we always put the audience first when matchmaking brands with an influencer.

We also understand the power of micro influencers and how long term brand partnerships can generate a healthy ROI.

If you’re curious about whether influencer marketing is right for your brand, get in touch and we’ll talk you through our experience and find the best routes suited to your audience. 

Insight

Insight is about making sense of what people want, how they feel and using this information to create truly engaging brand strategies that lead to the power of conversation about your brand. A brand is not what you tell your audiences it is, it’s what they tell each so the power of conversation should never been underestimated.

Twist helps brands to bring insight to life by making sense of the customer to develop campaigns that inspire and create conversations.

From portraits of your team, to atmospheric vibes that reach far and wide on social, to tempt the glossies and inspire editorial inclusion, we can help come up with ideas for capturing the right moment, so when people see it, they will stop, think and want to know “where’s that”, “what’s that” and “I want that”! And even better… we want our content to create conversations for your brand.
