Avison Young

To get in with brokers, make sure you stand out.

the obstacle

Avison Young needed to promote their newly renovated office space at Franklin Square to brokers already bombarded with an endless stream of ads, flyers and other marketing materials.

The piece had to cut through the clutter and be noticed by a group of people whose attention is under almost constant assault.

the opportunity

To make sure brokers would know about this sleek, new property, our design team created a memorable unboxing experience. A dimensional mailer, as sophisticated as the building itself, too hard to ignore and too inviting not to unwrap.

Once designed, our wide format division put together an ornate box that just begged to be opened. Inside was a beautifully written and elegantly designed brochure which, when picked up by the broker, revealed an offer for a $75 thank you gift card. A reward sure to get the broker community talking, and in so doing, promote the building as well.

the optimism

A good creative strategy—in this case rewarding people for their desired behavior—can overcome even the toughest marketing challenge. It’s not easy getting through to brokers.

But if you can come up with a strong, simple idea, and execute it flawlessly, you’re halfway there.
