Putting a spin on Snowball’s annual impact report to attract top-tier coverage.
Snowball were looking to take their annual impact report and reach a wider target audience across media and social platforms. They partnered with Aspectus due to our tight media relationships and in depth understanding across financial services and ESG.
Impact fund of funds, Snowball IM, wanted an agency that understood the nuanced differences between impact investing and ESG to support in the media launch of its impact report. The ultimate goal was to secure an interview with the FT’s Moral Money and for the report to be covered by the mainstream investment media.
Impact reports by their nature tend to be self-promotional and are consequently disregarded by the media. So, in order to position Snowball’s report as a valuable asset and template for the industry, we drafted a release that emphasised that Snowball was choosing to publish a self-critical report – something few others had done before. We focused on Snowball’s innovative approach to measuring impact and how it distinguishes itself from ESG, which fed in well to themes of interest to the media at the time.
