Seniors in Need

Seniors in Need

BACKGROUND

We’ve been working over the past four months with entrepreneur and seniors advocate, Peter Cook, along with Kim Mclaughlin from www.lyracommunications.com to design and develop SENIORS IN NEED. The moment we chatted with Peter, we knew we wanted to help. Knowing that great ideas deserve great marketing, we contributed the logo and design branding and worked with them to make the site happen within their budget. They are getting some great media coverage! This site is a Content Management System (CMS) build on DRUPAL and allows the sponsoring agency (eg. VON, Red Cross, etc.) to join the site and post the needs of the seniors they support. They then link a senior in need with a donor via the agency that made the submission. Please consider contacting your local social agency assisting seniors and tell them to sign up and begin to alleviate the burden of our senior citizens.

SimCoLab

SimCoLab

BACKGROUND

SimCoLab is a community-operated workspace where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital art or electronic art, can meet, socialise and/or collaborate. We exists to develop a community of people interested in making awesome things and promoting the entire cycle.

SimCoLab works to:

  • Build and maintain spaces suitable for technical and social collaboration.
  • Collaborate on all forms of technology, culture and craft in new and interesting ways.
  • Apply the results of its work to specific cultural, charitable and scientific causes.
  • Freely share its research and discoveries, using what is learned to teach others.
  • Recruit and develop talented members dedicated to these purposes.
  • Teach one another through collaborative projects and/or workshops for children, youth, adults and seniors

A National contest to offer six months of free office space in the world’s smallest office, conveniently positioned in the storefront window of The Creative Space, Barrie’s entrepreneurial gathering place and live in a cool new studio condo just outside of downtown.

We worked hard spreading the word across Simcoe, Canada and the world about this great contest and our great City!

UPDATE/Review

We set up a great web site featuring the winnings and all you wonderful sponsors with links to your websites.

We created 3 feature pages – feel free to link to them in your posts, tweets, etc

The smOffice – showing off the furniture, the space and other winnings

Barrie -showing off our city

The Condo – showcasing the property and 606 condo

 

We ran a Canada Wide PR blast

Press Release went across Canada and got some good exposure

The last report was March 12th, so the stats will have increased – The release appeared on 108 media websites with a total potential audience reach of 70,450,000 people.

No non-Barrie press pick up, but that will change when we get an applicant, as we can leverage their local story with their local press.

We ran a secondary PR blitz to local smaller outlets – report coming.

We’ve produced 2 great videos (thanks Stature!) talking about the project and our amazing sponsors

VIDEO #1

VIDEO #2

We built a stage and smOffice corner with a brick wall wrap and blade sign

We will be working on the front of the building banner/railing featuring all your logos in the next few weeks.

Prizes coming

We bought an e-bike for the winner to use, but it will stay with TCS for other promotions ongoing. Should arrive in May (we hope!)

We’ll be purchasing a MAC Air for the winner

$500 slush fund for the winner deposited in free MCU bank account

Local Press

Advance – small repeat of the press release

Examiner – Large pic and amazing half page article, including the front page banner teaser.  Great article!

Got picked up by a number of affiliate online outlets and online news feeds

TV

Rogers TV with Craig Busch – they showed the sponsors screen and I believe we listed off everyone!

(Daytime, plus scheduled for a longer show with Business with Charmaine on April 29th)

We also landed on a number of Online news mag sites an got reposted on Startup Canada, VentureLabs and other online startup influencers

Social Media

Twitter has been a buzz with followers from all over the globe!

I sent 306 tweets to 122 people in the past 44 days with a total reach of over 225,000 people.

We received decent RTs and favourites throughout the 44 days from some good influencers.

I received a call from a Business Coach in BC who was raving about it!

I had a call from a Denver Colorado entrepreneur org called House of Genius.  They stated how awesome this idea was and that they see Barrie as they we’re 10 year earlier.  A great city on the verge of something big!  I agree!

We ran 3 paid Facebook campaigns with a total reach of 180,000
