PR Bangkok company Gemini guarantees F&B digital marketing mass outreach

Yona Beach Club, a one-of-a-kind multi-level boat and floating beach club, was ready to make its debut in Phuket, Thailand, following a long and careful process of achieving its many detailed accreditations for quality and safety. YONA set sail to greet guests on its inaugural outing on 8th August (2023) in the East of Phuket, in the warm waters of the Andaman Sea.

From this magical seat amidst the lapping of the gentle waves and backdrop of lush beaches, guests were to be greeted with a transcendental lifestyle and F&B experience. It promises to give YONA voyagers a chance to immerse themselves in one of life’s most unforgettable moments on a 1200m2 state-of-the-art maritime engineering marvel.

There was already a huge amount of interest in the project before Yona decided to make its formal media announcement. Locals in Phuket knew about Yona for a long time, of course, as it was being refitted, launched and accredited during a long build flow; but there was also a lot of noise generated in the social space as a result of it being such a unique – and photogenic – F&B and hospitality venue.

Objective – PR agency in Bangkok helps promote Yona Beach Club Phuket

Yona Beach Club chose Gemini PR on account of the great value it offers, and also its strong media connections and warmth of journalist relations. Firstly, Gemini offers clients an affordable package for press release news and photo story distribution which also includes a month of free messaging and positioning consulting – this is really helpful for clients who are still trying to figure out how best to communicate their USPs and benefits to talk about, points of essential clarification, etc.

Also, Gemini’s team of agency owners have a region-wide reputation for being the best writers and editors in the PR industry in all of Asia, with literally thousands of media stories successfully run in big outlets on line and in print.

In short, we augmented an already active social media presence by delivering the hard-hitting factual news, with stories planned to perfection to make sure messages cut through with clarity, punch and panache. This is particularly helpful for projects like Yona, which have had a long gestation and which seek to offer customers clarity of its proposition, which many potential customers had a lot of questions about.

In careful strategic consultation with the client, an extensive release was created to place great emphasis the key brand hallmarks of Yona Beach Club Phuket, as well as giving journalists in Bangkok and further afield a real feel for the location and man-made resort setting.
As a top PR agency in Bangkok, Gemini sought to target a broad demographic of media, which were well represented across categories, including Bangkok business media and Thailand lifestyle magazines, as well as online-first news channels in Thailand, plus an amplified influencer platform reach.

What is a good PR strategy for my hotel or resort?

Influencer marketing agency work in Thailand is an essential part of today’s modern PR campaign but Yona were already very strong in this area, such is the magnetic appeal of such an awesome floating resort concept. Therefore, the client wanted to achieve widespread news release distribution via traditional online platforms while managing their own social media content, which Yona’s team had already worked hard to improve following earlier project delays (which had confused some early enquirers).
