Fresh Project: Patagonia – The Cleanest Line Blog Post

Feb 2022: Patagonia ‘The Cleanest Line’ has published an expose by Masterson Communications Managing Director Miles Masterson on the threat of mining on the beaches of the Cape West Coast.

The Cleanest Line, the official blog of international clothing brand, Patagonia, recently published ‘The Real Hidden Gems of the West Coast’, an article by Masterson Communications’ Director Miles Masterson about the impact of Big Mineral Mining on the South African environment. Writing in his capacity of Media Liaison for non-profit organisation, Protect The West Coast (PTWC), Miles reveals how foreign mining companies are ostensibly exploiting the mineral wealth of the beaches and coastal zones of South Africa’s fragile and hauntingly beautiful Cape West Coast, seemingly with the tacit approval of the country’s government. Travelling to the region to attend a public meeting held last year by a mining company applying to prospect for minerals in the area near Lamberts Bay, Miles was struck by the passion of local residents, who despite demographic differences, were united in their opposition against these mines. Miles spoke to several key stakeholders in the region, building a picture of corporate and government chase of profits on one side vs the rights of regular South Africans, including indigenous communities, on the other, with a damaging effect on  livelihoods in the fishing, tourism and other local industries.

Fresh Project: Screan – An Innovative New Ecommerce Concept

July 2021: Masterson Communications recently contributed to the launch of an innovative new ecommerce business concept and website based in Cape Town, South Africa – Screan. (www.screan.co.za)

Created by entrepreneur Mike Schlebach, Screan is an incredibly easy-to-use and risk-free way of inspecting a used car that completely removes the effort, hassle and admin around viewing pre-owned goods from the prospective buyer. Masterson Communications consulted with Screan on several aspects of their business concept, including their business development strategy, content strategy and website development, including UX, CTAs, conversion funnels and IX. Masterson Communications also conducted SEO keyword research, and keyword enabled and wrote or edited all of the copy for the Screan website, as well as implemented the back end SEO. Apart from used cars, Screan will be expanding its concept to include other second hand goods in the near future.

“I started Screan because it solves a problem I have always had when trying to buy a pre-owned car and I loved the idea of being able to shop for a second hand vehicle nationwide from anywhere. Masterson Communications helped me to develop my business idea and to create my website copy and did a fantastic job. Miles and Megan were easy to work with, professional and insightful in all aspects of digital marketing and content creation. I was more than satisfied with their work and will be using Masterson Communications again as we further market and develop Screan.”
