Kremer Signs are proud to announce this years winners of the BOTY Awards.... Arun Estates!
At Kremer Signs we run a yearlong competition called The BOTY Award (Board Of The Year), where we award monthly winners based on their board designs, and out of the winning 12, a winner is announced for the board of the year. This year we received 238 submissions, but the unanimous winners overall were Arun Estates with the fantastic dog campaign boards.
Since the launch, many agents contacted us off the back of sharing Arun Estates boards on social media, looking to achieve similar impact through the use of 8 colour process photo imaging on their boards. Their design has not only been such a huge hit throughout Kent, but also setting a trend for agents nationwide.
The use of the dogs being used across the group, but with subtle changes to the shape of the board, brings continuity between the Wards, Cubbitt & West, Pittis and Douglas Allen brands, which reinforces the overall Arun Estates identity, and achieves brand consistency across the range, which is what makes these boards an incredibly powerful marketing tool.
The publicity and engagement that they have received from this board campaign has been unrivalled. From being included as a highlight feature in The Negotiator magazine, through to massive social media engagement, their boards have been turning the heads of not only the people travelling through the streets of Kent, but people nationwide. They truly have unlocked the full marketing potential of the traditional ‘For Sale’ Board.
Boards are all about brand awareness within your local area, reinforcing your brand and showcasing your property portfolio to the public. These boards tick all boxes and then some… Through adjusting the design for seasonal campaigns such as Pride, charity events & competitions, they have remained relevant all year long, which has increased the campaigns longevity.
Interaction is everything with boards, and by running a competition through the use of a QR Code included on the board, they gave the general public the possibility to submit photos of their pets, with a chance of being included on the next board variation. This saw huge numbers engage with the boards, and a print run was made with a photo of the dog from the winning submission, which was fantastic publicity for Arun Estates.
We are firm believers that the For Sale board remains one of the most important marketing tools available to an estate agent in this modern Prop Tech world. This campaign from Arun Estates is a prime example of the marketing success that can be achieved from the modest For Sale board.
Please see below the video of Luke Salmon from Arun Estates collecting their award, and his thoughts on the campaign and boards in general:
We were really impressed by Kremer Signs and how quickly they could get our boards printed and delivered to our board movement providers. All the staff that we dealt with are extremely friendly. I worked closely with Ryan Little and Sam Collins - both very helpful and quick at responding. Thank you for your help - we are super happy with our boards from Kremer Signs.
Great customer service
The process of ordering boards for my company New Door Real Estate was so easy from the get go with Kremer Signs! I was kept informed every step of the way by Nick and Ryan and I really couldn't fault them. Great customer service and the quality of the boards is brilliant. We're really happy with them!
Delivered in great time
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Kremer Signs (especially Ryan Little) for getting me set up with my dream for sale signs. As a very new independent estate agent, I was reassured with the great customer service and the fact I was looked after from start to finish. Really happy with the finished product which was delivered in great time too. Thanks again, I will be back for more (hopefully soon)!
