Why PR and digital marketing, rather than advertising?


Raise brand awareness AND build credibility

Like advertising, PR can substantially raise brand awareness. PR can, however, also build credibility and trust in a client’s brand through the endorsement of media and influencers. This way, what your markets see is far more believable and poignant than conventional advertising.

Storytelling v2@300x

Change a narrative

If you’re wanting to change a narrative that affects how you go about your business, PR through its powerful storytelling ability can shift, enhance and build a brand’s reputation through the endorsement of media and influencers. Transform analyses your organisation, discovers what’s positive and meaningful to your audiences, and then translates these findings into stories that appeal to the media.


Build trust and talkability

Thought-leadership PR can significantly deliver on clients’ marketing needs, particularly in a downturn. According to the 2023 LinkedIn-Edelman Thought Leadership Impact Report, 62% of c-suite executives – the top level of management in their specific departments – are planning for an economic downturn this year, while most (90%) decisionmakers say they are more inclined to listen to or act on referrals from people they know or respect when deciding on what to buy, and 61% believe that an organisation’s thought-leadership can be a lot more effective at demonstrating the value of a product/service compared to other forms of marketing.


The Sanlam Cape Town Marathon (SCTM) is Africa’s only IAAF Gold Label marathon. Since its relaunch under a new rights agreement with Western Province Athletics five years ago, it has cemented itself as the continent’s must-run city marathon. The ambition is for it to become a member of the illustrious World Marathon Majors, the largest and most renowned marathons in the world.
