Media coverage via Instagram
Working with Busbud.com, the largest bus tickets site in the world we recently promoted two separate national stories in Brazil. One a business story to launch a white label product which was aimed at travel and business publications, the second was a piece of research aimed at Brazilian national and travel media about the most Instagrammed locations in Brazil.
We were delighted with the media coverage interest we generated for the business story, especially pleased with the coverage we got in the key travel and business magazines including Brasilturis, Exame and Empresas S.A. However, the coverage we got for the Instagram campaign was just amazing with more than 60 separate articles in publications as varied as UOL Viagem, Pan Rotas, Olhar Digital, Metrópoles, Diário do Nordeste, Terra, Descubra Minas, Boa Informação and Band.
How did we do it? We created a release aimed at the national media coverage and then 27 alternative versions tailored to media in every state in Brazil. In the releases we highlighted, of course, some of the expected results (i.e. Copacabana Beach being the most popular spot for Instagrammers in the entire country) but also on some of the unexpected locations such as football stadiums and shopping malls. As a result even generating Sherlock Communications first piece of coverage in a football team’s fan publication (thank you Corinthians FC!) and a four minute broadcast interview on CBN, Brazil’s largest speech radio network. Further evidence, if it were needed, that Sherlock Communications continues to be one the best PR agencies in Brazil.
