Chet Morrison Contractors is a worldwide leader in providing construction, maintenance and abandonment services to the oil and gas industry. We helped the company launch its revolutionary SHARC cutting tool with the help of a few sharp marketing strategies.
Showing the SHARC in Action
BBR developed an animated product video that was featured at the OTC event and displayed on the client’s website. After the show, a promotional e-newsletter was sent to guests and all other clients announcing the launch of the new equipment and linking to the video.
A branded shark bottle opener and key chain with a promotional card giving product details proved to be a big hit with prospective clients at the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston.
"BBR's PR team did a great job getting high-profile coverage for SHARC. The interviews they arranged for us gave our team a unique opportunity to talk to editors about SHARC's potential impact on the industry."
–Kelly Reeves, Vice President of Marketing
PR efforts included drafting and distributing a product press release, as well as creating custom oil and gas industry media lists. BBR also arranged client interviews and feature articles with industry media. This resulted in a four-page feature article on Rigzone (a widely read industry news website) and a two-page article in Offshore Engineer magazine.
We gave Chet Morrison Contractors the tools it needed to reach important industry decision-makers. Now, the industry leader is better equipped than ever to share its own innovative tools with an even wider audience.
