Online Reputation for Swiss Investment Firm

Background

Percepto partnered with a Switzerland-based investment firm, Client T, to help create an online presence and raise their digital profile across English-speaking spaces, with complementary work done in French. With limited to no comms activities done previous to our work, Percepto was tasked to focus the messaging of both the company’s brand, as well as the CEO’s. Activity would create an appropriate narrative with an aim to build trust for potential new clients, while maintaining the good reputation which Client T enjoyed with their current clientele.

Challenges

1

No fully realized communications strategy or time spent on considering their brand image

2

 A lack of existing platforms to build upon – no active social media, profiles on corporate websites, etc.

3

Almost zero engagement or outreach achieved from any former activity.

4

No clear narrative to any content written about them.

5

Negative results appearing in Google first pages

6

Another person with the same name as the CEO had some strong links on Google first pages.
