Nolan Celebrates Double Award Success

15 December 11

West Wales window, door and conservatory company, Nolan uPVC, has been rewarded for its innovative approach to online marketing picking up two industry awards.

Marketing manager, Sarah Cleevely was in London on 25th November to proudly collect the G11 Retail Promotional Campaign of the Year for the company’s ‘Who lives in a panda costume like this?’ social media competition. The campaign was also chosen as the overall winner of the Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA) Creative Marketing Award in Cardiff.

As Marketing Manager for the company based in Cardiff and Carmarthen, Sarah devised a competition using the company’s panda mascot to run via Facebook and Twitter in which visitors were able to watch a video and work out the answer to the question “Who lives in a panda costume like this?” for a chance to win a prize worth £500.

The video was shot in the style of A Question of Sport’s ‘Mystery Guest Round’ and featured Cardiff Blues star Gareth Williams. The competition received more than 1,500 entries and led to a substantial increase in traffic to the company’s website and increased sales leads.

Sarah, who has worked for Nolan as marketing manager for three and a half years, said:

“I am delighted that my marketing efforts have been recognised both nationally and locally. It is a great accolade and personal achievement at a time when marketing budgets are under increasing pressure, and just goes to show that local businesses can create big impact with relatively low-cost online campaigns.”

At the IWA Business Awards, which are designed to recognise and honour the achievements of Welsh businesses, Nolan was chosen as the overall winner for its marketing ahead of chartered accountants UHY Peacheys and Celtic Quest Coasteering.

At the G11 Awards, which celebrate the people and companies in the glass and glazing industry who have excelled in 2011, Nolan was the only Welsh business to reach the finals alongside big industry names including Charles Christianson, Rehau and Saint-Gobain Glass UK.

“As the only Welsh business shortlisted this year I am delighted to have won a national award alongside some leading names in the glass and glazing industry. It is also a great honour to have gained recognition as one of the winning Welsh businesses chosen for the inaugural IWA Business Awards. It was just a shame I couldn’t be in two places at once to collect both awards in person.”

The IWA award was collected by Cardiff Sales Manager Adrian Phillips.
