Need someone to hold the fort? Call Deep South Media

Deep South Media hasn’t had time to stop since the end of the summer break with new instructions and some major publicity campaigns for clients.

One such was promoting the sale of three Victorian-era forts in the Solent; two of which are being sold by Colliers and one by auction through Clive Emson land and property auctioneers.

Our intrepid head of visual Paul Collins took some stunning shots of Horse Sand Fort that stands unchanged since the Ministry of Defence gave it up years ago.

The accompanying news release made national and international headlines, including in MailOnline the most widely-read English language news site in the world.

Our release led to magazine features and radio interviews – and social media loved the story.

The campaign meant that the news was put in front of tens of millions of people around the globe – and, crucially, not through advertising but editorial which gives it far more weight and means it is far more likely to be read.

We have also been working on a campaign for Britannia Maritime Aid, which is planning to build two £150m disaster relief ships.

We designed the graphics to illustrate the plans and produced a news release that was picked up here and abroad. The Telegraph gave the story prominence, stating how the Prime Minister was now involved.

Deep South Media staff continue to produce blogs for clients on a wide range of subjects – many attracting national attention.

We also helped The Tank Museum promote its event for World Mental Health Day, which was covered extensively on local radio and across the regional media.

One of the speakers at the event was David O’Mahoney, a former soldier who lost half his skull but made a remarkable recovery.

Being staffed by former journalists means we are able to turn copy around in double-quick time.

Given our agility and expertise, we were chosen at short notice to create the authoritative content for ‘no-deal Brexit’ information packs across seven business sectors.

Our reach has also expanded into East Anglia with Regional & City Airports asking us to get involved with Norwich International Airport, as well as flying the flag for Bournemouth Airport.

We have also been asked by a trade association headquartered in the City of London to tender for work.

Business development continued at the inaugural Hampshire Business Show at the Ageas Bowl, home of Hampshire Cricket.

There were around 100 businesses there with 1,500 visitors. The Only Way Is Essex The Apprentice winner Mark Wright gave a fascinating talk on digital marketing – which gave us plenty of new ideas.
