MacIntyre Communications coordinated a consumer event at the Toronto Eaton Centre for NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP. The objective was to drive traffic to the new NYX store and drive sales during its grand opening weekend. The consumer activation included a vlogger 'meet and greet' for NYX fans and shoppers, as well as NYX ambassadors handing out thousands of branded chocolate bars throughout the mall that contained a gift-with- purchase.
MacIntyre Communications provides content creation and develops programs that prompt user-generated content for brands. MacIntyre Communications executed a blogger lookbook for the launch of a new division within GEOX. This lookbook featured six bloggers in the new Nebula collection. Content was featured on each of the blogger's digital platforms and GEOX was able to share the content with their consumers through a newsletter and on their social platforms.
In 2016, MacIntyre Communications developed a strategic social media plan in conjunction with a series of events for NYX PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP. The objective was to drive awareness to the grand opening of the NYX store at the Toronto Eaton Centre. Three custom snapchat filters were designed to takeover different geographical areas in the city that were frequented by the target market. Over the course of 48 hours, the custom filters were seen and used by influencers, tastemakers, and media.
MacIntyre Communications developed a strategy for bringing the story of the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie to life.

As a result, the program solidified the Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie as one of the Top Three Spas in 2014, awarded by Spas of America.

Unlimited connections, an energetic and abundant staff, and very importantly, attention to detail with not only the main focus of helping businesses grow, but organization and efficiency with internal accounting and management skills.”

Public Relations Campaigns
MacIntyre Communications developed the concept and executed all aspects of the national #LoveMyHood campaign for Bench. Canada. The campaign included media relations, influencer programs, media previews, blogger activations, social media, in-store campaigns, contesting, and consumer-facing initiatives. The ground-breaking success of the Canadian campaign resulted in an international Bench. Campaign in 2015.
“MacIntyre Communications has brought us innovative ideas, strategic-thinking and creativity. The entire team is helpful, dedicated, exceptionally professional, fun to work with and energetic with each campaign. More recently, they developed a PR campaign called #LOVEMYHOOD that was a success in Canada and then became the global campaign in 2015 for Bench. UK. MacIntyre Communications' experience and expertise has helped realize a level of media coverage we would not have been able to obtain on our own through radio, TV, print and online. If effective public relations and unmatched media coverage, either local or national, is the goal, MacIntyre Communications will give you excellent results.”

“Always impressed with the continuous flow of creative Ideas complemented with the right strategic approach in both in Public Relations and in Social Media. Thinking out of the box with a unique concept such as our ambassador program has resulted in a lift in buzz and engagement.”

The Ottawa store opening boasted creative performances by music duo M'Michele, along with food, drink, and private media tours.
“In the past 18 months, we left our comfort zone in Quebec to launch our first 2 out of province stores in Toronto and Ottawa. Today, these stores are amongst the company's most successful locations and MacIntyre Communications is one of the biggest reasons. They have been a tremendous partner by treating our business like it was their own. Our brand is continuously getting media coverage which continues to drive new people to our stores. In my 20 year career, they are the most hands on PR agency I have ever worked with. Simply a pleasure”
