Banks Renewables sees public relations images deliver media success – over and over again

AS YOU might expect from a  company committed to sustainable sources of energy, Banks Renewables love the concept of reuse and recycling. 

That’s why PR photography has formed such a successful element of the wind farm company’s working relationship with our award-winning PR agency in Edinburgh.

We make sure our eye catching photography for Banks is reused as often as possible and recycled across as many different platforms, including newspapers, blogs, websites and brochures (see the short video, below).

Those images include a photo of the company’s Scottish boss Colin Anderson against a backdrop of turbines which has been reused many times across a range of different Scottish newspapers and energy news sites.

Banks Renewables StaffAs part of our work to tell the story of how Banks Renewables benefits the communities where it works, we have photographed everything from Jubilee tea parties and sheepdog trials, to children’s sports team and local gardening initiatives.

What’s most important is how that commitment to photography has delivered a tangible return on investment to Banks Renewables.

The company has seen a sharp increase in its positive media profile, with images helping secure substantial coverage in the all-important local media. That ensure Banks gets a fair share of voice in the wind farm debate, tackling myths and explaining the many benefits to local people and businesses.

It also gives the company attractive images to welcome visitors to the Banks Renewables website and keep them engaged on the site, which is an important tool for providing information to local communities.

Banks RenewablesLikewise the images are regularly reused in brochures, leaflets and other information being sent out to local groups as part of vital community consultation work – and they appear in newsletters and other email correspondence with influencers including councillors, MPs and MSPs.

Of course, the growing pool of photographs, which is added to regularly, gives Banks Renewables a great image resource to draw on for social media purposes – and of course local groups have also shared images of their members on Facebook and with their networks.
