Established in 2010, Phobio is a fast-growing company. In building a portfolio of big brand clients, including consumer and mobile device companies and retailers, Phobio needed to expand its market persona in the industry. In October 2017, Phobio engaged Springboard to implement a national media campaign targeting key press and analysts.
In the first month of the engagement, Springboard worked with Phobio to identify and build out the necessary messaging framework to drive its public relations initiatives – value proposition, market positioning, and key storylines and themes. It also created a media list and editorial calendar that included press releases, bylined articles, blog posts, infographics and other content assets that will be integrated into various media campaigns.
Inside the first month, Springboard implemented a public relations campaign which garnered coverage from key publications including Wireless Week.
“Springboard has played an integral role in supporting Phobio’s marketing team since 2017. Their hard work, attention to detail, and quick turnaround on projects has been instrumental in growing the company’s brand awareness. We’re working on many exciting initiatives and look forward to continued success.”
