Case Studies

For more than 20 years, CRC strategies have been helping our clients to improve their brands, reputations and their business performance.

Chevron is the second-largest integrated energy company in the US. For years, CRC has developed many of Chevron’s communications, media relations, crisis communications, and social media strategies – helping to re-enforce Chevron’s position as a market leader and reaffirm its corporate responsibility within the community it serves. Our strategies have generated hundreds of favorable news stories on TV, national and local print stories, and extensive coverage of energy related issues. A single, Facebook campaign alone generated more than 850,000 fans. Another earned media campaign delivered 17 television interviews, 148 radio interviews, 25 Op-ed placements and more than 100 in-depth interviews. CRC has helped promote the Chevron brand while positioning the energy giant as a model, corporate citizen.

Bias is a best-selling book about a CBS insider exposing media news distortion. CRC created a strategy to gain the maximum exposure for the book and the author to help increase sales. CRC arranged a one-on-one meeting with Matt Drudge that led to the book being featured on The Drudge Report. CRC then leveraged the Drudge exposure to launch the book with an exclusive interview on the Sean Hannity Radio Show and Hannity TV show on Fox News. Following the launch, the media tour yielded interviews on Fox and Friends, Rush Limbaugh radio, dozens of television interviews and more than 300 radio interviews. Bias reached #1 and spent 19 weeks on the New York Times best sellers list
