Client headlines: Sage Communities, Del Mar, Nosh and the Conservancy

Every month, Priority Marketing spotlights clients’ news coverage in the media – newspapers, magazines, television, radio, blogs and social media. The list is extensive, often surpassing 100 headlines per month. 

In 2022, we’re changing things up a bit. Rather than list headlines from several dozen clients, we’re narrowing it down to a few clients. We will offer an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at media coverage. 

This month, we’ll explore Sage Communities, Del Mar Naples, Nosh on Naples Bay and The Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Each celebrated a new beginning in recent weeks, and Priority Marketing was there every step of the way. 

Sage Communities 

Client Headlines - Sage at Oak CreekSage Communities is a new development company that anticipates creating several active adult communities in Southwest Florida. Priority Marketing partnered with Sage Communities to introduce the company’s first community – Sage at Oak Creek. The rental community will feature one- and two-bedroom units with full kitchens, living rooms and private porches. Sage at Oak Creek addresses the region’s critical shortage of rental properties designed with seniors in mind. 

Priority Marketing helped coordinate a groundbreaking event that included project partners, investors, elected leaders and other dignitaries. Priority Marketing created an event agenda, developed a site plan that included parking, arranged for food and beverages, and secured tent, chair and A/V rentals. 

To introduce the new project to the community, Priority Marketing drafted and distributed a news release to local media. In addition to being a featured story on WINK News, the news was featured in these publications: 

Gulfshore Business: 55-plus community coming to North Fort Myers 
Naples Daily News: Sage at Oak Creek offering 55+ apartment rentals 
Gulfshore Business: New 1,000-home retirement community breaks ground in North Fort Myers

Del Mar Naples  

Client Headlines - Del Mar NaplesDel Mar Naples is a new Mediterranean-inspired restaurant from award-winning Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. Located steps from the Gulf on Fifth Avenue South, Del Mar showcases a variety of seafood complemented by bright produce, fresh cheeses and earthy spice blends on a seasonal, made-from-scratch menu. 

To create buzz, Priority Marketing helped plan and execute an exclusive VIP preview event. The firm developed an extensive guest list of elected officials, business and nonprofit leaders, dignitaries and influencers. The “soft opening” event gave local VIPs the first taste of Del Mar Naples and generated excitement for the newest restaurant to Southwest Florida’s vibrant dining scene. 

Priority Marketing also provided media relations services to introduce Del Mar Naples to the market. This included coordinating media interviews with local food, dining and business reporters as well as drafting multiple news releases to announce job opportunities, introduce the restaurant’s executive chef and provide news on the restaurant’s amazing menu and its December grand opening.

Nosh on Naples Bay 

Client Headlines - Nosh on Naples BayAcclaimed Chef Todd Johnson and his wife and partner, Dana Johnson, recently opened Nosh on Naples Bay, an upscale, modern dining experience at Naples Bay Resort. The new restaurant sits on a prime waterfront location with boat access and an open-kitchen concept. 

Priority Marketing showcased its versatility through several strategies that helped Nosh generate buzz before its grand opening. The firm’s Public Relations Department drafted news releases and pitched the story to both business and food writers, then helped coordinate pre-opening media interviews. The Website Development Team created a dynamic site that includes the menu, mouthwatering photos, a reservations portal and more. A multitalented Event Management Team coordinated a ribbon-cutting ceremony and two VIP seatings – including the creation of a guest list – that introduced Nosh to influential individuals. Once the restaurant opened, Priority Marketing’s Social Media Department planned, drafted and posted updates on social media, and began monitoring customer feedback through the firm’s reputation management service.
