Digital Communications

As the world continues to embrace social media platforms as part of the norm, we believe in developing social media strategies that make sense for our clients. We do not believe that you have to have a social media asset purely because it exists, but rather that you should engage on those platforms that your target audience engages with. We also believe that creative social media campaigns go a long way in ensuring that brand is engaging and you get to know your target audience better.

One of our core strengths lies in integrating your social media campaign with traditional public relations to ensure that you have a common message across platforms while differentiating yourself from competitors. 

Our social media services include:

• Social media asset creation

• Community management

• Content development

• Strategic campaigns

Crisis Communications

In a digital world, where social media has become king, the process in which an organisation deals with a sudden emergency situation can make or break that organisation. Our crisis management service takes on a proactive approach rather than a reactive one. We identify potential issues that may arise and find solutions that will rectify them.  

We handle all the elements of crisis communications on your behalf to reduce the pressure on you.

 

Our crisis communications services include:

  • Crisis communications strategy and process development

  • Proactive reputational risk monitoring

  • Crisis communications management

We first understand your business and its priorities and then tailor an integrated communications solution that meets your needs.

Events

Creatively designed events are a great way of exposing your brand to your target audience and getting your message across. At McD Squared we believe in designing event concepts in which we use your company’s messaging creatively to make them more memorable.​

 

Our events services include:

  • Concept development

  • Event management

  • Management of media attendance

  • Live social media management

Marketing

Marketing is your direct link to the customer and it is therefore critical that it clearly defines your organisation. Again, at McD Squared we believe in an integrated approach, making sure that all your collateral speaks to your customers’ needs, driving your company’s key messages throughout the process.

 

Our marketing services include:

  • Corporate literature

  • Creative corporate gifts and media packs that carry your brand message to the target audience

  • Corporate clothing for any occasion

Industry analyst relations

We will work with you to develop a comprehensive, on-going industry analyst relations campaign to suit your specific needs. We will identify the right industry analysts for you to engage with, assist in developing key discussion points and manage the entire process to enable you to have those valuable discussions that keep your brand top of mind. 

Creativity is at the heart of what we do!
