Smart Valor

SMART VALOR is a business with big ambitions. It is aiming to democratise investing with a borderless, blockchain-powered platform open to anyone. Headquartered in Switzerland, the company is in the process of launching a ‘crypto-bank’ in the shape of a decentralised marketplace for tokenised investments, backed by secure custody for crypto assets.

Company GOAL:

Lead the tokenized investment revolution

Clarity’s Challenge:

Crown the ‘Bitcoin Queen of the Crypto Valley’

ABOUT

Preparing a company for an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) can be a challenge, especially when the company only has an MVP and a limited track record. For SMART VALOR Clarity needed to build credibility and brand visibility within banking, fintech and tech circles, as well as understand the hype among the crypto community ahead of its product rollout and public crowdsale.

We sensed the potential of the company’s CEO Olga Feldmeier and looked to establish her as a global voice on bitcoin, blockchain and fintech in general.

We rooted the campaign in a comprehensive content strategy built on informative advice and engaging thought leadership. With her credentials established, we then gave Olga Feldmeier the moniker the ‘Bitcoin Queen of the Crypto Valley’ and secured a host of high profile print and broadcast opportunities where she commented on everything from the price of bitcoin to the growth of female CEOs in tech companies and the ongoing economic implications of collapse of the Soviet Empire.

We also tracked breaking stories which we considered would give Olga the opportunity to add her unique and insightful perspective. We also leveraged Olga’s attendance at a series of events including Consensus 2018, Money 2020 and Blockchain Summit to generate broadcast opportunities.

The campaign paid off handsomely. Within two months Olga was seen as a major innovator and thought leader in the fintech/crypto world and was featured in major broadcasters/print titles/websites such as CNN, Business Insider and Forbes.

Results

139 media hits in 6 months, reaching an audience of 3.9 billion
Broadcast interviews and profiles with international media such as CNN, Business Insider, Daily Express, Reuters, Coin Telegraph, IBT and Forbes
Tier-one attendees at SMART VALOR’s Crypto Summit from media including The Economist, Bitcoinist and Crowdfund Insider.

Loqate

Company Goal: Dominate B2B Location Data

Clarity’s Challenge: Break through Black Friday

Cutting through the noise during the stretch from Black Friday to Cyber Monday is almost as challenging and stressful as actually shopping during that weekend. But, when Loquate challenged the Clarity London team to do just that, we didn’t flinch. Over the course of 2 months leading into Black Friday, Clarity and Loquate developed what would be known as the award-winning “Golden Quarter” campaign. Understanding that media outlets would be cranking out retail analysis articles fast and furious during this weekend, Clarity turned Loquate into *the* go-to resource for any media outlet looking for shopping data and expert analysis.

In addition to creating a series of stories based on PCA’s real-time ecommerce data, the PCA Predict team actually spent Black Friday at the Clarity London offices, which were converted into a non-stop News Room, serving up live data to hundreds of journalists as Black Friday and Cyber Monday evolved.

To say that the Golden Quarter campaign was a success would be an understatement. The fantastic results the team achieved were recognised at group-level and several customers got in touch to request our bespoke data reports, which has supported our sales and customer delivery teams in strengthening key relationships. Not only did we generate wall-to-wall media coverage in the most influential media outlets in the country, but we also saw a 29% increase in new business between October and January when compared to the year before.

Eleven James

Company Goal: Debut curated collections at time of site re-launch

Clarity’s Challenge: Secure coverage across lifestyle and fashion publications

Eleven James, a luxury watch rental subscription service, brought on Clarity PR for the relaunch of its platform and the debut of its curated collections. Already on the industry radar, Eleven James need Clarity to reinvigorate the brand messaging and show how the company had evolved since its last media push.

In a heavily media-relations focused campaign, Clarity utilized all angles of the launch to appeal to a wide audience. To maximize coverage, Clarity integrated the brand story with the business story, which allowed us to penetrate business, fashion/style, luxury, and watch trade publications. Additionally, Clarity arranged briefings between Eleven James’ executives and top-tier targets.
