Sans Frontiere works with Global Heating manufacturer to launch new After Sales service Caresafe

Global heating appliance manufacturer Ferroli asked us to help them with the relaunch of their customer aftersales service Caresafe to reflect the company’s commitment to provide the very best technical support for its customers.

With our in-depth understanding of Ferroli’s ethos as a public-facing company and its target market, we designed an appealing new brand logo in the company colourways that could be applied to a range of marketing tools. This included new van graphics and work-related items for the Caresafe team of heating engineers to encourage them to feel part of a valued team of experts who will maintain Ferroli’s reputation as a caring, professional company.

Ferroli’s stand impresses at Installer 2019 HVAC Exhibition

Looking good Ferroli! Our client Italian boiler manufacturer Ferroli kicked off their 2019 HVAC exhibition programme in style at Installer2019 with an eye-catching stand designed by Sans Frontiere.

This exhibition, which took place at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena in May, is one of the heating & plumbing industry’s most high profile events so it was important that Ferroli’s stand was able to attract visitors in a very competitive environment and that it conveyed the innovation and quality of Ferroli’s products.

As well as the design of the stand we managed the entire project from start to finish. By liaising closely with our client to understand their vision and aims, we managed every aspect that exhibiting at this kind of trade show involves, including the creative concept for the stand graphics, collaboration with the stand build company on the design and construction of the stand, liaison with the exhibition organisers and PR and social media to promote Ferroli’s presence at the event before and during the show. With three more exhibitions to follow this year, the stand design will be adapted to fit the different configurations.

If you are attending an exhibition and need a stand design that makes the most of your time and investment we’d love to help you. Get in touch today!

Over 7 million views achieved on social media for Essilor, the world leader in prescription lenses

Sans Frontiere Marketing helps 100s of UK opticians reach new local customers through a partnership with worldwide lens manufacturer, Essilor

The Objective
Sans Frontiere Marketing was commissioned by Essilor (the world’s leading provider of prescription lenses) to run digital campaigns for independent opticians all over the UK who are members of the Essilor loyalty programme scheme.

The Campaigns
Throughout 2018 Sans Frontiere worked on 89 campaigns for 70 independent opticians. These campaigns typically ran for a duration of one to 8 months within a location of 3, 5 or 8km radius of each practice. The campaigns looked to raise the awareness of each practice within the local area and promote Essilor products to the correct target demographic.

Targeting
The generic parameters of the campaigns were to target potential local customers within the age demographic and location of the ideal customer who has a known interest in glasses, optics or eyewear. However, each campaign was bespoke to the individual optician, with some targeting audiences with specific interests including bi-focal lenses, family eye care or difficulty with vision in certain environments such as playing sport or driving.

Channels
The campaigns predominantly featured on Facebook as many of the target audience were active on this channel and a number of opticians already had established Facebook pages. Where relevant, Instagram was also explored and used as channel for the adverts, including Instagram Stories & Facebook Stories; this proved to be a popular channel for the younger demographic, particularly those interested in the digital lenses (Eyezen).

The Results
The campaign generated over 7,000,000 views on the content whilst reaching an audience 1,500,000 highly targeted people. The campaign operated on an 11% CTR (click through rate), significantly higher than the benchmark for this industry of 1.01% (Wordstream 2019 https://www.wordstream.com/blog/ws/2017/02/28/facebook-advertising-benchmarks). The campaigns also produced plenty of engagements and people who were interested in booking appointments with the opticians. These leads were recorded individually with each practice’s bespoke campaign.

Sans Frontiere help visitor numbers reach over 65,000 at the South of England Show!

 

 

Saturday gave us the perfect weather and resulted in just over 30,000 visitors! In fact just over 65,000 over the three days!

Thanks for all you help and support in putting together a compelling creative and media campaign, which I’m sure helped our numbers this year.

The media coverage was exceptional this year, which kept us all extremely busy at the show, and we got some excellent national and regional TV, print media and radio coverage.

No doubt, we will undertake a fuller review of what went well and what could be better so we can build on the success of this year.  But for now, it is good to celebrate in a successful show!

YouTube channel set up and production of superb case study videos for Cola Stoves

Set up a You Tube channel for Cola Stoves and host the new videos on the Cola website

From its origins in 1963 as a metalworking company for the construction of heating systems, Italian company Cola is now one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of energy efficient pellet stoves and boilers.

Cola came to Sans Frontiere to help them set up the look and feel of their You Tube channel and we worked together to produce three superb case study channel videos.

Cola had the vision to recognise the potential of wood as a fuel and developed the idea of transforming the stove from a simple heat source into an object of beauty and decoration. Following the invention in the USA in 1973 of wood pellets as an environmentally-friendly alternative fuel for industry, it became clear that pellets could be used for boilers and stoves for private homes. As a result, Cola worked to develop specific products in the field of pellets
