10/28/13—Redlands, CA—Molly Burgess, President of RedFusion Media, announced that the local marketing company received a “Capella Award” in recognition of the newsletters they create for Longmont Dairy Farm of Colorado. The 48th Annual Polaris Awards and Dinnerwas held by the Public Relations Society of America, Inland Empire (PRSAIE) Chapter.
“Mooo News” is the title given to farm’s newsletters. Over the past 21 years, Longmont Diary and RedFusion Media have produced more than 250 printed ‘Mooo News’ newsletters, delivered each month to customers’ milk boxes.
Jon Burgess, Marketing Consultant at RedFusion, remarked, “Mooo News evolved from the original black and white newsletter with a note from the owner, Susan Boyd, and a couple of milk recipes to today’s colorful newsletter, reporting on health and fitness, and other customer retention themes, such as their 19th annual “Poetry Contest” and their 14th annual “Eggnog Bottle Design Contest.”
The newsletters are designed to engage customers with delicious pictures and recipes, to inform parents with up-to-date information on dairy health, and to involve families with activities for kids.
“Mooo News was developed to create branding with customers and maintain constant contact. Longmont Dairy wants customers to see their brand as being nutritious, locally sustainable, and eco-friendly. Through surveys,” says Jon Burgess, “we are constantly evaluating our work and encouraging customer feedback. Based on the survey collected for the year 2012, 87% of our customers read Mooo News.”
This is the second time RedFusion Media and Longmont Dairy have won a public relations award. Last year, Longmont dairy was featured on the Jay Leno Tonight Show’s segment of “Hilarious Headlines,” which turned into a 2012 Polaris Award.
