Museums Galleries Scotland

Strategic and targeted PR campaigns for #MuseumsAreGo around Scotland highlighting museums and galleries activities, particularly around families and Gen Z. Developing new media strategies, and research into new podcasts and vloggers. We also developed Influencer strategies, research and pitches.

There is a blog post about MGS’s inclusive approach to marketing which we supported on their website.

Our successful hyper-local campaign secured excellent coverage and included: the Falkirk Herald, The Scotsman, The Northern Times, Rosshire Journal, Deeside Piper and Herald, Fife Herald, Fife Herald, The Fife Free Press, Glenrothes Gazette, The Ellon Times, Dunfermline Press, East Fife Mail, Oban Times, Southern Reporter, The Berwickshire News, The Mairns Leader

“To improve the inclusivity of our PR activities, The Space inBetween conducted research to create a diverse bank of influencers who were open to collaboration. We worked with three of those influencers as part of our winter campaign, which resulted in excellent engagement with audiences we would not normally reach.

We are currently working with Binita and her team on a pitch-based summer campaign which involves non-traditional media such as podcasts and vlogs. They have undertaken research and prepared pitches for this campaign.

The team at The Space inBetween are fantastic to work with: they understand what we are trying to achieve, always bring lots of ideas to the table, and have strong writing abilities. They are also genuinely passionate about our sector, which shines through in the work they do for us.”
