Putting Britain’s SMEs Back in Business

Currensea is a travel money debit card which enables customers to spend directly from their main bank account when abroad, without charges or fees.

Company GOAL:

Raise awareness of Currensea’s SME card as the best payments option for small businesses trading goods and services from abroad.

Clarity’s Challenge:

Pivot Currensea’s consumer offering (a travel debit card) to a B2B offering in the midst of COVID lockdown.

ABOUT

Currensea is a travel money debit card which enables customers to spend directly from their main bank account when abroad, without charges or fees. Launching its consumer offering in January 2020, three months before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down international travel, it had to pivot to survive. So the team created a card for small businesses who wanted to continue trading internationally as cost effectively as possible through this difficult period. Currensea partnered with the B2B experts at Clarity in order to launch the new proposition.

The campaign, called Britain Back in Business, was a three-pronged approach to stagger Currensea’s B2B launch, driving momentum and leads over time and reflecting how Currensea’s product could power-up SMEs and the wider economy during a challenging time.

Clarity’s approach highlighted the product’s unique value add, generating awareness and leads for the company, which despite operating in the heavily affected travel sector, has not made any redundancies or put any staff on furlough, and continues to go from strength-to-strength. The campaign also made public the specific issues faced by the nation’s SMEs, showcasing Currensea as a trusted advisor for customers during a difficult time.

Citrix

Company Goal: Generate more social media interaction and build relationships with targeted groups

Clarity’s Challenge: Create tailored social media campaigns, nailing Citrix’s tone of voice and persona

We started the social media campaigns, using Twitter polls and for one of the campaigns (self-recorded) videos from one of the Citrix spokespersons. We have launched tailored campaigns for which we have posted almost 50 polls and recorded 20 videos. The result was astonishing: we achieved exceptional interaction rates (average: 3.31% for Twitter and 1.64% for LinkedIn). For comparison: an interaction ratio between 0.33% and 1% is considered high for Twitter (research by Scrunch) and a study by Forrester showed that the average interaction rate of the top 50 brands worldwide is 0.054% on LinkedIn. In total we realized over 925,000 impressions and almost 50,000 interactions on Twitter and LinkedIn.

VRBex

Company Goal: To bring credibility, transparency and trust to the crypto space

Clarity’s Challenge: Build VRBex’s visibility and establish its reputation as a trustworthy, US-regulated financial services brand

VRBex, a US-regulated cryptocurrency financial services brand, enlisted Clarity to build its reputation as a company bringing credibility, transparency and trust to the crypto space. The campaign needed to increase brand visibility beyond the sphere of crypto, with reaching potential partners and investors being a key objective.

Prior to the launch of VRBex, Clarity rolled out a program grounded in thought leadership, developing and placing VRBex-bylined articles that presented unique points of view in stark contrast to existing narratives in the space. To further build credibility, the team positioned Founder and CEO Gene Grant as the most knowledgeable resource on the regulation of crypto and security tokens through briefings with high-profile trade media and influencers.

At the time of launch and pre-sale, Clarity leveraged the newly-elevated profile for an aggressive media relations campaign, for which the ability to provide industry insights and offer substantive commentary on breaking news stories served to amplify results.

Trilith Studios

Company Goal: Pinewood Atlanta Studios came to Clarity for a total rebrand to Trilith Studios… then COVID struck and all production was halted

Clarity’s Challenge: Rebrand a major studio in the middle of a pandemic, positioning it as a leader and educator on bringing production back safely.

Pinewood Atlanta Studios (now Trilith Studios) is world famous for its long legacy of churning out blockbuster hits through collaborations with the likes of Disney, Marvel, Sony and Warner Bros. In 2019, the company was poised for not just a rebrand but a reimagining, branding the company to Trilith Studios and reinventing the company as not just a production studio but a new live/work model encompassing a fully integrated production armed with its own IP as well as a walkable residential community for a new generation of creatives, entrepreneurs and storytellers – not something that had been done at this scale.

With a timing of June 2020 to unveil the new brand, Clarity began placing a series of agenda-setting features in industry trades and business, tech and real estate media introducing this new expansive live/work studio environment for creatives, while retaining the Studio’s impressive stature as a movie-making hub rivaling the biggest in the world.

Then, with the onset of COVID-19 in March 2020, production is halted across the industry and Trilith faced both a need to align on best practices and protocols to restart filming, without losing momentum of the business while the rebrand was pushed off. 

Clarity responded quickly, aggressively promoting CEO, Frank Patterson as an authority on the effects of the pandemic on production, pointing to the studio’s own stringent COVID protocols as a gold standard for the industry, announcing state of the art testing protocols and plans to reopen and restart movie and TV production, cementing their position as an industry leader and giving them tremendous visibility and credibility ahead of the delayed rebrand, which took place in October 2020.
