5W Media Relations - Media Hits 5W PR - Paintzen Public Relations


Given that Paintzen was available in select markets, but growing, at the onset of 5W's campaign, 5W has developed a campaign that would resonate with press throughout the country regardless of whether or not the service is currently available in a specific area. To do so, the team analyzed the news cycle and identified the growing trend of "digital décor" companies - businesses that help with home improvement via online capabilities. 5W then dubbed this concept "The Digital Décor Movement" and has positioned it as the impetus behind all media relations efforts in order to establish large-scale brand relevancy. This has involved:

Expert Positioning - 5W recruited Paintzen's lead Project Manager, Kristen Chuber, as the resident "Digital Décor Expert," which enables the team to offer her insights to media nationwide as the content is not restricted to any particular market.

New Market Roll-Outs - As Paintzen launches its service in new markets, 5W uses the "Digital Décor Movement" as a key point of differentiation to showcase the company's unique and modern approach to home renovation and generate brand excitement, as well as the convenience and accessibility that Paintzen offers.

General / Trend Focused Media Relations - 5W continues to pursue and obtain new opportunities for Paintzen, all of which place the company at the forefront of the online design industry.
