      Helping launch small businesses operating on small budgets
    • Case Study: Snapple ‘Frequent Thirst’ program
      Challenge:
      The Snapple brand developed a loyalty rewards program in 1994 for elementary and high schools across the U.S. that served Snapple on campus, and needed one central clearinghouse to service hundreds of Snapple distributors, thousands of schools and to manage thousands of annual reimbursement checks for the schools.
    • Case Study: Snapple ‘Frequent Thirst’ program
      Resolution:
      TimComm became operational manager of the program, providing soup-to-nuts service, and meeting distributors’ every need. Now in our 16th school year, we still provide same-day (usually same-phone-call) service to schools nationwide.
      Schools never fail to express their appreciation to Snapple for the efficiency of “Frequent Thirst.”
    • Case Study: Gatorade “publicity”
      The Challenge:
      Gatorade needed a pure public relations campaign to generate publicity touting the unique “fluid replacement” and “energy restoration” benefits of its isotonic sport beverage, but newspapers rejected the premise and sports-specific magazines labeled Gatorade an overpriced “belly-wash.”
    • Case Study: Gatorade “publicity”
      Resolution:
      We shifted PR tactics and brought aboard athletic trainers in professional sports (NFL, NBA, MLB) who strategically placed Gatorade coolers, cups and bottles on the sidelines of all their televised games…and the rest is history!
      The Gatorade “publicity machine” shifted to focus on touting the value of athletic trainers.
    • Case Study: Gatorade Sports Science Institute
      Challenge:
      Having grown from an $80 million brand to nearly $600 million in four years, Gatorade’s future growth was being threatened by registered dietitians, exercise scientists and sports-specific media, all of whom argued that Gatorade was a contrived beverage without scientific underpinning.
    • Case Study: Gatorade Sports Science Institute
      Resolution:
      TimComm worked from day one with Gatorade exercise scientists to populate the GSSI advisory board; schedule high profile RDs and exercise scientists to make GSSI-sponsored talks; edit/publish all GSSI printed materials; schedule and coordinate all GSSI meetings; and to reimburse speakers for honoraria and expenses.
      GSSI is acknowledged worldwide for integrity.
    • Case Study: Nat’l Athletic Trainers’ Assn.
      Challenge:
      Acknowledged as pioneering “sports medicine” professionals since 1950, the member organization was being leapfrogged by relative newcomers to athletic health care. TimComm was retained to help lay claim to sports medicine territory that rightfully belonged to the 8,400 members (at the time) of the NATA.
    • Case Study: Nat’l Athletic Trainers’ Assn.
      Resolution:
      TimComm procured two national corporate sponsors to underwrite a 5-year awareness-building campaign, highlighted by release of the first national high school injury studies.
      Intense national publicity surrounding the HS injury studies led to thousands more athletic trainers being hired, tripling NATA membership.
    • Case Study: Carlie Security Backpacks
      Challenge:
      A Chicago entrepreneur developed school backpacks for kids equipped with a rip cord that triggers an ear-piercing alarm with flashing lights to fend off would-be kidnappers/assaults, but lightly funded PR/marketing budget found him still operating out of his basement several years after mass manufacturing his product line.
    • Case Study: Carlie Security Backpacks
      Resolution:
      TimComm packaged fresh photos, video and timely news releases and distributed them nationally, while specifically pitching producers of national television talk shows.
      Montel Williams Show featured Carlie backpack spokeswoman (and retired detective), triggering $1 million distribution agreement in Canada.
