PUBLICOM AD AND PR CAMPAIGNS WIN TOP NATIONAL AWARDS

March 26, 2018

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Publicom Inc., a full-service marketing communications firm, has won two national awards in the 15th Annual Service Industry Advertising Awards competition.

Publicom was recognized with a gold award for a multi-media advertising campaign and a silver award for a public relations campaign.

"It's always satisfying to win national awards," said Lisa O'Connor, Publicom president. "It's a testament to how our work compares with agencies across the country. Because budget levels are not taken into consideration, we believe we are able to produce nationally award-winning work very economically for our clients."

The multi-media ad campaign is based on the creative concept of "just walk right in" to McLaren Bay Region's Occupational and Convenient Care Walk-in Clinic. Materials included TV, radio, outdoor and print advertising and social media. The TV commercial can be viewed here: http://www.publicom.com/portfolio/video/convient-care.

The PR campaign for the City of East Lansing created "buzz" to encourage patronage of businesses during major construction. A friendly bee was used in print and digital communications designed to help take the sting out of potential business disruption caused by the construction. Deliverables included a merchant guide, customer information cards, graphic templates for e-blasts and other communication, and a microsite, https://www.eastlansingbuzz.org.

Judges evaluated the advertising excellence of more than 1,600 entries from service industry providers and presented 136 Gold, 86 Silver and 60 Bronze awards.
