A NASDAQ listed payments business, Cardtronics Inc is the world’s largest ATM operator. Working with them for over 10 years, we have helped them fight regulation change, transform positive media perception of the organisation and demonstrate how their investment in technology is fighting crime. We help them to ensure a balanced narrative around digital and physical payments particularly for high street retailers.

We delivered...

We developed a series of data-led stories based on consumer insights that were both regional and national in order to highlight the importance of cash in the UK. We identified and targeted Very Important Journalists (VIJs) at the Financial Times, The Mail on Sunday and The Daily Express. This diversity in outlets was a purposeful media strategy, mapped against a mixed audience of shop owners, consumers and policy makers across the UK. 

We collaborated with our VIJs to create angles and assets they wanted to land multiple in-depth Tier 1 articles, support political engagement with key MPs and maintain a nationwide discussion about how to support the high street as we come out of lockdown.
