Multi-national business services provider and digital printing company Xerox was looking to reposition itself in the Egyptian market as a document management and technology solutions company, strengthening their reputation and brand amongst the business and technology community.
Over our 13-year partnership of ongoing PR and marketing communications consulting, we employed a multi-faceted marketing and communications strategy designed to maintain Xerox’s position as a market leader while building strong relations with the national media through educating them about the company’s state-of-the-art solutions and services. Our suite of support consisted of devising a robust marketing strategy; events planning and execution; arranging media education sessions and interviews with national reporters for two of the most influential women in world business; annual media training to Xerox’s first liners; ongoing press office support; planning and execution of the corporation’s 25th anniversary.
Following our work with Xerox, the company saw a steady growth rate in its print and online media exposure from an average of 100 clippings/annually 800 clippings/Annually seven years later, raising the PR value from an average of 1 million Egyptian pounds to more than 5.5 million/annually and contributing to a paid media spend saving of over 44 million in ten years. This initial piece of work was the genesis of a long-standing relationship between CID and Xerox which has lasted 13 years.
