Consumer Marketing and Lead Generation Campaign

NARI’s Marketing Committee chose Bolin Marketing to be its partner for a nationwide outreach to educate consumers on the importance of choosing a NARI remodeler. A three-pronged consumer outreach campaign was devised after much research with NARI members and homeowners, and it encompasses print ad buys, search engine optimization (SEO) tactics and video.

In the first part of the campaign, NARI will be making some national print ad buys in publications that have an audience of remodel-ready homeowners. In addition, NARI will customize these ads for the chapters to use.

The second part of the marketing campaign encompasses SEO, which targets the way a homeowner might search via Google or Yahoo. To that end, the URL to which homeowners will be directed from the print ad campaign is www.nariremodelers.com. Homeowners will be able to search for NARI members by ZIP code, as well as by specialty. To kick off the campaign, NARI?chose categories based on Google Ad Words, which takes into consideration the words that are chosen when someone does a search on Google and the frequency of those words. This site can be found at www.nariremodelers.com.
