The Situation

CREST is a scheme that inspires young people to think and behave like scientists and engineers.

PLMR Digital was tasked with boosting the social media platforms for CREST Awards by drafting and scheduling engaging content for their Facebook and Twitter accounts.


What we did

PLMR created eye-catching graphics displaying their activities and wrote engaging content to go with it to help boost their overall engagement and appeal more to their target audiences of teachers, students and parents with an interest in STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).

The Result

Over a one month span, we achieved the following:


21.6% increase in tweets

24% increase in post link clicks

30.4% increase in new followers


26% increase in page views

33% increase in page likes

26% increase in post reach

92% increase in post engagement

Due to these successful ongoing monthly results, CREST have become a long-term client of PLMR Digital.
