In reading this week’s edition of PRWeek, I came across a good case study example of a PR campaign created by Fever PR to support Only Fools & Horses 30th Anniversary.

Covering elements of traditional PR and social media, Gold TV planned an Only Fools & Horses marathon, broadcasting every episode created, to mark the show’s 30th Anniversary.

 

Overview

  • Timescale – August-September 2017
  • Budget – £60,000

Objectives 

  • To get more hits on the Gold Facebook page
  • To unite traditional and social media with on-air promotion
  • To attract viewers to watch the anniversary series

Strategy & Plan

Fever recreated Del Boy’s Peckham flat and launched a Facebook competition to win a chance to spend a night in the legendary flat. Sourcing props and features for the original show, key media figures and celebrities were invited to a launch party for the competition.

Measurement & Evaluation

  • 63 pieces of national coverage, including three consecutive days in The Sun.
  • Gold TV’s Facebook page increased by more than 12,000
  • Generated over 6,000 social media mentions
  • Received over 2,000 requests to rent the flat in the campaigns first week through Gold TV’s Facebook page
  • Around 7.5 million adults tuned in a 20% increase on usual viewing figures
