Continental Control Systems Turns to Redpines to Increase Attention from Press and Potential Customers

Continental Control Systems (CCS) wanted to raise its profile with key publications in the energy management, electric sub-metering, building automation and HVAC markets. The company turned to Redpines to help orchestrate a visibility campaign that would allow then to reach prospects, customers, partners, and distribution channel representatives through the business-to-business trade press. The agency wrote and distributed ten press releases over a five-month period, and also assisted CCS with promotions surrounding four tradeshows: WEEC 2011/2012, Greenbuild 2011/2012, and Globalcon 2012. In addition, Redpines wrote and placed two thought leadership articles for CCS in major leading trade publications. The agency’s efforts resulted in hundreds of online print placements, coverage in the AHR Daily News, and significantly improved SEO, also a primary goal of the client.
