It Works! hired Axia to promote a multi-million dollar island sale. Axia pitched contacts and outlets that had previously covered Little Bokeelia Island. Axia’s outreach efforts secured more than 100 articles about the island’s purchase.
MillerCoors sought out Axia PR to raise public awareness of Miller Lite’s new Vortex bottle and ultimately increase its summer sales. Axia created publicity leveraging the power of local media, a celebrity, and a charity. Axia returned MillerCoors’ investment more than 10 times with positive news and social media coverage.
In a hot real estate market, condos in Florida sell like sunscreen. Consider the experience of Amelia Island’s new residential condominium, Cape Sound. During a 24 month period, more than 50 percent of the units in the first phase sold. Then, as the real estate market cooled, Allegiance Development began to feel the pinch.
