When bazinga! landed a partnership with Tridel, Canada's largest developer of high rise condominiums, Larissa saw the opportunity to tell the compelling success story of this partnership. 

A press release was put on the wire across Canada and picked up by hundreds of outlets including Bloomberg Business Week, Canadian Business, Vancouver Sun, and more.

In order to revive the bazinga! name in the Vancouver market, we focused on Vancouver Sun reporter Gillian Shaw for this exclusive story.  The story resulted in a 300% increase of traffic to bazinga!'s website and increased sales and new prospects.  

Other notable press:


ritz-carlton residences, waikiki beach

Leading up to the launch of The Residences, Larissa was responsible for driving the social media and influencer strategy in the Waikiki market. Larissa developed invited industry influencers to meet with her and tour the sales centre while experiencing the luxuries of this new condominium development. 

The event was written up in multiple publications, including this feature in Honolulu Magazine.  

 

 

 


World Housing

Larissa spearheaded the marketing launch of World Housing, the world's first one-for-one gifting model. With the sale of a condo in a World Housing project, $3,000 is paid to an NGO partner to build a home for a family living in Cambodia or the Philippines. 

Part of the launch of World Housing was a PR campaign to announce this innovative concept to the industry.  

Larissa helped organize a press conference at the Pac Rim Hotel where over 20 media attended to hear founders Sid and Pete talk about the launch of World Housing. The press conference was broadcast digitally for media and friends to follow. 

Following the press conference, major publications ran feature articles including:

The New Yorker, NY Daily News, Vancouver Sun, Huffington Post, Yahoo! Finance, Curbed, and more.

Media coverage through the following weeks included Fast Company, CTV, and Mother Nature Network. Within six weeks of launching the program, World Housing was featured in nearly 70 unique publications worldwide. 


the anthology

Larissa's sister, Kelsey Dundon, runs a successful blog (theanthology.ca), and as a result has become a media spokesperson on CTV and Global BC. Larissa helped her with her monthly segments on Global BC for #WardrobeRescue and lifestyle appearances on CTV. 

 


REAL ESTATE

While working at Key Marketing, Larissa was responsible for setting the PR strategy for clients. 

As a publicity stunt for one client, she chartered a helicopter to tour realtors over White Rock, BC. Media were brought up in the helicopter, resulting in TV and newspaper coverage that evening and the next day.

While working on The Cottages at Osoyoos Lake, Larissa developed a budget-friendly way to reach potential customers all over BC and Alberta. Through the creation of two stunts, including a portable sales centre using an Airstream and large, oversized Adirondack chairs installed along the highway up to the project, we were able to garner many website registrations and interest in the project.

Larissa Dundon &co. launched and manages Diet for the MIND's social media channels. The content strategy is a combination of original photography, details about the team, science behind the book, original recipes, and health tips and tricks.  

About the book:

Several factors play into whether you will suffer from cognitive decline and develop Alzheimer's disease -- lifestyle, health conditions, environment, and genetics, for example. But now there is scientific evidence indicating that diet plays a bigger role in brain health than we ever thought before. In Diet for the MIND, one of the leaders in this research provides an easy, non-invasive, and effective way to prevent cognitive decline and reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease through diet and lifestyle.

The book was launched on December 26, 2017 with press and social media outreach.
