Consumer Marketing and Lead Generation Campaign

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 made some national print ad buys in publications that have an audience of remodel-ready homeowners. In addition, NARI customized 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.

NARI members can e-mail info@nari.org with the nine specialties the company should be listed under on www.nariremodelers.com. These specialties are:

  • Remodeling Contractor
  • Cabinet Installer
  • Cabinet Refacing
  • Countertop Installer

These landing pages, as they are called, also has a series of videos on them, explaining what NARI is, what the Code of Ethics means to a homeowner who chooses a NARI contractor, what certification means and a testimonial from a homeowner who has used a NARI contractor. There will also be a separate landing page of the videos, which NARI members can link to from their Web site, without having to worry that a potential client could click away and then find another NARI member. The link for this Web site is www.nariremodelers.com/video-player-external.aspx.

NARI members can download the HTML to use a NARI logo with the video link embedded in it. These Web logos are available in 250x250 pixels, 180x150 pixels, 125x125 pixels and 65x65 pixels.
