what some of our Auckland PR clients say…


“They are experienced and professional strategic communicators who are great to work with.”

– Gordon Gillan, Public Relations and Partnerships Manager, The Travel Corporation

"We engaged Cadence Communications to lead last year's Macular Degeneration annual Awareness Week campaign. Their collective insight, experience and commitment led to a very successful campaign that worked extremely well for us."
- Phillippa Pitcher, Macular Degeneration New Zealand

“As a start-up, we found this was great because we hadn’t considered many of these questions so it was great to learn how to deal with them before getting into a media interview situation. We highly recommend using Cadence for media training.”

Hannah and Tyson Walker, Founders, Proppy

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.
