Transcend Media Group has been the trusted partner of Cheil Kenya, serving as their Samsung PR and Media Relations agency for four years. Over this partnership, the team has consistently delivered effective PR campaigns for various brands, contributing to the substantial increase in PRV over time.
The top-performing month for the CE division during the period from June 2022 to June 2023 was November 2022, where the total PRV reached Kes. 72,089,235. This significant achievement was a result of a well-executed awareness campaign for the TV division, highlighting its status as the best global TV brand for the 16th consecutive year. The success was primarily driven by the efforts of the CE division's influencer, Ivy Mugo, who conducted impactful interviews. Additionally, the strategic sponsorships in golf events during the same month contributed to the heightened PRV.
For the MX division, the highest PRV month was February 2023, reaching a total of Kes. 248,862,455. This exceptional performance was linked to the virtual event called "Unpacked 2023," during which the Galaxy S23 series was unveiled. The PRV surge during this month was a direct result of well-planned paid-for TV placements, Radio mentions, and on-ground interview opportunities generated during the event.
