Engage your target audiences
Any Auckland PR agency can make noise but we get results!
Target audiences come in all shapes and sizes and no two are the same. Communicating at them might give the appearance that something is being achieved, but a successful outcome requires more than simply making lots of 'noise'.
We differ from many other PR agencies in Auckland in that all of our people
are senior-level, highly experienced public relations, marketing and social media marketing practitioners.
When working with clients we take the time to really understand not just what they think they want, but what they actually need. That means our work - and clients' PR budgets - are focused on what really counts. Don't just take our word for it - see below for what some of our Auckland clients have to say.

- Phillippa Pitcher, Macular Degeneration New Zealand
"Starting up again under a new brand is stressful. Fortunately I was referred to Cadence Communications. They came up with fresh ideas for me within a very short time frame and took away all the worry and stress by taking over what needed to be done and steering me in the right direction.

Case study: clever PR wins the week
Macular degeneration (MD) is a degenerative eye disease that is this country’s leading cause of blindness. One in seven New Zealanders over the age of 50 have the condition, which can quickly cause vision loss if left untreated. Early detection and treatment are crucial for preventing further vision loss.
Our client Macular Degeneration New Zealand planned to run an awareness week to encourage people to take a simple test (Amsler Grid) that can detect the condition, and then seek help immediately if there were any warning signs.
Health awareness weeks are a dime a dozen so gaining attention was going to be challenging given that: a) there was nothing new to say; b) the health condition is mainly experienced by old people so has little ‘sex appeal’ to the news media; and c) there was a modest budget to reach nearly a quarter of New Zealand’s population.
How our PR campaign got great results
Clever thinking and smart targeting achieved results that greatly exceeded the client’s expectations.
The PR campaign, which combined media relations with social media marketing, involved having macular degeneration suffers telling their personal stories. We made them the campaign's heroes and created Facebook content that was posted for 10 days covering both ends of the awareness week. Their stories were told from the first person perspective, which created an emotional connection with the audience.
The campaign achieved excellent reach and engagement on Facebook, showing that people had really connected with MD-sufferers' personal stories.
Visits to MDNZ's website sky-rocketed by 1000% and 0800 number calls increased from 2-3 per day, to 20-40 per day during the awareness week. Many of the calls involved inquiries about getting an Amsler Grid pamphlet. We also over-achieved our news media targets, gaining two television, four radio and 15 newspaper articles nationwide.
This campaign was a finalist in the 2016 SMAKL social media awards and also achieved Highly Commended in the Public Relations Institute of NZ's 2017 public relations awards.
