Thinking outside the box

Overview

Fulwell 73 and Posh Cockney have worked together from the very start of the Posh Cockney journey. We have a strong relationship and regularly plan, organise and run their events, parties and team activities.

Our Objective

To create a number of outdoor events, small and large for team building and entertainment. To build on each event, making it bigger and better and create a strong and continuing partnership between the two companies.

Challenges

The Fulwell 73 company Summer staff party took place on the roof of their building, this comes with many health and safety challenges.
FullFest came with a huge amount of organisations and this had to be timed perfectly with all suppliers. We had to ensure that all parties were happy with all financial, timing and accessibility arrangements.
All correct insurance and risk assessments were carried out for all activities and outdoor sleeping.
For both events we had to ensure that all food was always cooked properly and was constantly on brand and met the needs of the client.
As both events were outside, a plan B for weather needed to be put in place. We had to ensure that guests had enough sun cream, fluids etc to be able to enjoy their time. Sounds obvious but essential.

Our Approach

Our first event for Fulwell 73 was their team BBQ at their head office, where we brought in outside suppliers, ensuring they were always on brand for the company.

The success of the initial event led to a request for a larger, festival style event, where the venue needed to be sourced, including accommodation and all suppliers. We approached this as if planning a full scale festival.

What we did 

Head Office Summer BBQ:

We sourced and booked all suppliers including caterers, musicians and a bar all serving delicious food and cocktails.

Summer FullFest:

We booked a venue in Tunbridge Wells called Ashtree Farm , suitable for a 2 day festival with 60 people sleeping outside.

We organised transport to and from the venues, and ensured that all health and safety checks were in place.

A jam packed itinerary of activities were put in place over the 2 days.

We booked six food stations, serving a selection of different food options throughout the day as well as a bar and personalised drinks.

All risk assessments were carried out for all activities. We provided suncream and ensured that there were always enough fluids on hand for guests.

A huge selection of entertainment was booked, including bands, singers, acts and mind and wellness talks.

The Results

Both parties were a huge success and Fulwell 73 already has Posh Cockney lined up to organise their next set of company events.

What's next?

Covid 19 has put a stop to 2020 summer party plans, however Posh Cockney will be planning, organising and executing FulFest 2 in summer 2021as well as their outdoor office party.

In the meantime, Posh Cockney has been organising virtual events for Fulwell, including a Cake making class with La BellaCake company where the team all made a chocolate cake and an online dance class with Sass Productions, where the team learnt a choreographed routine from the girls.

Posh Cockney have plans for a virtual festival style event as well as life drawing classes and murder mystery. We have been thinking outside of the box throughout this entire process to ensure our clients are happy and team morale is boosted during such a difficult time.

Posh Cockney loves working with Fulwell and we can’t wait to get back to face to face events really soon.

Launching Pure Organic Vodka

Overview

In March 2019, Posh Cockney was hired to run the brand management and product release of Pure Organic Vodka in the UK market. The following case study is a breakdown of what services were provided and how they were carried out.

Our Objective

Pure was a new organic vodka owned by Adam Player. Adam hired Posh Cockney to launch the vodka in the UK market and help build the brand's awareness. We were tasked with getting the bottle in front of as many venue owners or decision makers as possible and getting the brand listed in as many places.

Challenges

Trying to launch a vodka brand in a heavily populated market.
Trying to compete with huge brands that had a massive marketing budget and consumer trust already built up.
Trying to educate people about the difference of Pure compared to other brands.
Not having the finances to pay for listing fees or retro deals that could compete.

Our Approach

We reached out to all of our industry contacts to secure meetings and present the product.

We looked for brand ambassadors to help grow the brand’s awareness.

We wanted to highlight the brands USP’s and target an aspirational clientele.

What we did 

In the first 3-month we managed to secure face-to-face meetings with some of the biggest venue owners in London. We pitched to them the brand story and the benefits of listing Pure.

We built a strong influencer following that helped grow our social platforms.
We planned and executed a launch party for the product which was a huge success.

We invited key industry people and many influencers to attend and this gave us a solid platform to push our brand harder in the market.

The PURE name was now out there and we acted fast to secure agreements.

We followed this up with several photo and video shoots to ensure we had lots of content.

Our strategy was to be dominant on social media as our competitors were not as active. We agreed this course of action was needed to be omnipresent.

After securing some major listings across London such as; W Hotel, Cafe de Paris, Duo Camden, Eve Bar Covent Garden, Juju Chelsea just to name a few.

We then started to look at retail off trade and more online sales.
We secured Pure as the official drinks sponsor at the Cool Venue Awards 19.

Since Dec 19 we have taken over all Social Media, Marketing and PR as well as Brand Management.

In July 2020, Pure turned one. This was celebrated with the release of a second product – Pure Lite.

Due to Covid19, our options were restricted slightly in the way we could promote this.
However, we were able to quickly secure features in many publications and push the product via social media.

The Results

Pure launch party was a major success.
Pure is listed in over 20 venues in London in its first year.

Online sales are at an all time high.
Social media engagement is excellent and growing daily.

We have overseen the launch of a new website which has incredible monthly traffic.
Features in online publications are happening frequently.

Pure is an established spirits brand within the industry.

What's next?

Pure is bringing out a third product later in 2020.

Pure will look to grow it’s portfolio of venues that it’s listed.

Pure will look to move into Europe.

Pure are looking at a pre-packed cocktail to help with bar efficiency.

Pure will continue its amazing charity work it does with the Save the Bees campaign.

Bringing Happy to London

Overview

In October 2019, Posh Cockney was hired to manage all Marketing and PR for the opening of Happy in Piccadilly. The restaurant opened on February 24th. The following case study is a breakdown of what services were provided and how they were carried out.

Our Objective

Happy is a well-known European restaurant group and our objective was to bring this award-winning restaurant chain to the heart of London. The chosen location was on Coventry Street in Piccadilly and our main objective was to ensure over 1000 customers per day walked through the doors.

Challenges

The Happy brand is relatively unknown in the UK so the brand needed to be promoted to a completely different market. The venue is huge and has large overheads attached, meaning there is little room for error. The area of the restaurant is already heavily populated with casual dining restaurants, which are all fighting over the same clientele.
Some delays in opening the restaurant which meant promoting our official opening date was tricky.
No website or social media to build on, so everything was creating bespoke for the London site.

Our Approach

Our team got to work straight away and started building a new website and social media channels to ensure we had digital platforms to push the Happy brand message.

We reached out to UK press and journalists to ensure the opening was on their radar and started planning a grand opening event. We collectively agreed that influencers and celebrities will be essential to grow the reputation of the restaurant, so we highlighted top talent that would fit with the brand’s identity.

What we did 

During a 3-month period (pre-opening) we created a bespoke website, created and managed the Happy London accounts across all social media platforms,  boosted the restaurants reputation with the foodie community via a combination of press releases, social media, media relations and word of mouth marketing.

We created a massive buzz with Londoners, Europeans and Tourists throughout the pre-opening phase through clever content creation.
When we finally opened, we decided to have a 2 week soft opening to gage interest and staff training. We planned to throw our main opening party 1 month later.

The pre-opening marketing and pr was so successful that our soft opening turned into a full capacity trade. We had queue’s around the corner from 12pm till close for the first month.

We averaged well over 1000 customers a day and had amazing reviews from diners.
Due to the early success, it was agreed we would not have a grand opening and maintain our growth by having an aggressive influencer campaign.
We had on average 3 influencers a day on site, each had on average 50,000 followers.

The venue and the food execution looked great so this really helps with creating excellent imagery. We ran the influencer campaign alongside a PPC campaign which also had amazing success.

The Results

Bringing Happy to London has been a huge success since it opened, but unfortunately had to close temporarily due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The doors will reopen in July 2020.

Our social media platforms continue to grow daily with Facebook being the star performer.
We managed to get over 20 items of coverage from food journalists and bloggers in the opening month. All 100% positive coverage generated.
Our first press release reached over 12,000,000 people worldwide.

Overall sales smashed company targets and expectations for the opening period.

What's next?

As we move into a post covid19 era, the restaurant is adapting to new guidelines and rules.

We are collectively constructing a new menu for the reopening.

Interior design tweaks are in motion to help the overall customer experience.
Plans for new terrace seating are in play for the Summer months.

Happy is looking for more locations in the UK.
