ACT launches a new campaign

Our client ACT Training, Wales’ leading training provider has unveiled a new recruitment campaign with four inspirational learners at its heart. The digital, print and PR campaign is entitled ‘Day in a life of’ and features real stories from real apprentices with  ACT, including our very own Agency Support Executive, Daniel Morris! He is one of the four stars in the new promotional campaign encouraging young people into the workplace. Daniel started a Social Media Apprenticeship with ACT last summer and has almost completed his qualification, he says “An apprenticeship is a great opportunity to learn on the job. The social media apprenticeship means that I’m working on what I’m learning every day and I get to see it come alive as I do it.” The “Day in a life of” campaign features three other apprentices that help showcase the broad range of training available through ACT from a baker in Brod in Pontcanna to working as an engineer in Landrover. The campaign which has been created to increase awareness of ACT’s traineeship, apprenticeship, higher apprenticeship programmes and vacancies to this year’s college and school leavers launched on Thursday 1st June 2017 with a private ‘red carpet’ screening event at ACT Training’s Head Office in Cardiff.

We were very excited to attend the Oi Conference in City Hall Cardiff on March 30th. A jam-packed day at Europes fastest growing social and mobile media gathering. We mingled with heads of social and mobile from Barclays, Sky, Yahoo, Tumblr, DigitasLBi, We Are Social, NBC, JOE.co.uk and many more. We enjoyed keynotes, seminars, an exhibition zone and master classes meeting many interesting industry peers along the way. There were many highlights for us including hearing different opinions on how to best utilize social media, how best to engage with clients and your target market and how not to….how established brands such as Weetabix have struggled in gaining mass audiences socially and how making your audience feel apart of something can effect mass engagement. Some stats that stood out for us were: 22% of internet users block adverts online.  60% of millennials block adverts online….all because they want to cut through to the content… Food for thought, maybe the way forward is to advertise through content and be consumer centric.
