Thousands of media hits. Millions of influential readers.

the situation

Rabobank is a global financial leader for the food and agriculture (F&A) industries. Their analyst, advisory, and M&A teams in North America author a steady stream of reports with unmatched industry insights. Without a master plan for high-level media outreach, however, their media placements were often random, if they happened at all. That’s where Motion came in.

the acceleration

The Motion team engineered and executed an aggressive media outreach strategy, placing Rabobank’s experts (and their unequaled expertise) in the publications where they would have the greatest impact.

For social media, an amped-up social channel strategy grew both follower numbers and engagement among clients, prospects, and key influencers.

Our integrated media relations strategy helped Rabobank:

Target top-tier business media outlets

Build long-term relationships with key food and ag trade pubs

“Newsjack” current events by staying atop industry trends and offering commentary from bank experts

the results

Over the first two and a half years working with Motion, Rabobank’s media presence exploded. Between direct placements and organic earned growth, they received 15K+ media hits, including 7K+ hits identifying a Rabobank expert by name.

In just six months, Rabobank saw over 200 million impressions from their target C-suite audience.
