Additionally, in 2011, Kryton received a STAR Award for their new Brand Identity.
“Emotional engagement is as important in B2B marketing as in consumer marketing. Emotional engagement is the gateway that sparks interest and allows you to explain the technical merits of a product. Too many initial facts or scientific support upfront can result in the potential prospects eyes glazing over,” said Rolf Skala, Marketing Director for Kryton. “Instead we focused on sharing the visceral emotional insights which directly impact their business – be it a leaking wall they could see and touch or humorous cartoon explainer videos which dramatizes the real challenges the construction industry faces.” Skala continues, “Visceral insights has allowed our prospects to identify with the waterproofing issues quickly, effectively, and above all – emotionally igniting conversations which would otherwise take longer to cultivate in the B2B environment.”
The CMA STAR awards recognize excellence and showcase the best in 16 marketing categories and 78 sub-categories including advertising, branding, website design, social media, brochures, catalogs, new product launches, packaging, photography, promotions, publicity, merchandising, trade shows, videos, employee communications, and integrated marketing campaigns.
“Kryton International Inc. was recognized as the winner for multiple categories in the construction industry,” states CMA Chairman Neil M. Brown. “The CMA STAR Awards showcase the very best in marketing, effectiveness and creative execution."
