RR Kabel presents CNBC-AWAAZ Real Estate Awards, from the past 13 years has always aimed at boosting the Real Estate enthusiasm in India and rewarding its excellent accomplishments. These awards identify and honour professionals who have envisioned and created marvels in the real estate industry.
There are more than 100 brands giving awards to Real Estate leaders in this sector, our obstacle was to stand out amongst the rest and maintain our 13 years of legacy by being the most prestigious award in the Real Estate Industry.
This is not a one-time award, but a year-long award; where first the zonal areas are honoured, followed by the national awards. Our main challenge was to maintain the buzz throughout the whole period of the campaign.
Our sole purpose was to create a quirky and relatable campaign which would maintain the awareness for almost a year.
To be the most esteemed awards of the Real Estate Fraternity.
Awards were always looked as a communication which is more focussed towards a B2B marketing strategy. Our creative rollout not only ensured that it connected with the B2C audience but also connected in a way that made the B2B leaders drop in their entries.
Our creative strategy helped us get more than 6000+ entries, which were 66.66% more entries compared to last year.
We executed a 360° digital marketing strategy for our client which includes -
Our campaign started with the creation of a mobile responsive website, to ensure we get maximum leads online.
We used Bollywood dialogues, Topical post-dates like Game of thrones, ICC world cup to remind the nomination dates for REA.
Using a series of videos and introducing LinkedIn for the first time to directly connect with the management community of the Real Estate sector, we achieved a massive response (750+ leads that came from Social Media were organic).
To keep the community engaged, we worked on below strategies:
A new award entry was introduced; where the users would vote for their favourite Real Estate Developer. We were excited to receive a huge response from each zone and the finale, resulting in the crashing of our servers.
To ensure that there is no gap in our communication, even though the awards were pushed by more than three months, we created a series of tête-à-tête between Shreegopal Kabra, MD RR Kabel and Vipin Bhat, editor of CNBC-AWAAZ on the current scenario of India's Real Estate sector; including tips from Kabra Ji on achieving success in life.
After the North and South Zone Awards, due to elections, we had a massive break in our other two zonal awards. Again to keep the community engaged we ran a contest activity - #ViewFromMyBalcony.
The contest received:
We did twitter trending activity for every zone with #REAEastZone, #REASouthZone, #REANorthZone and REAFinale, which gave us the following reach and impression for the brand
'Video' being the most consumed content in today’s scenario, we noticed that earlier years were not using much of video content. This year we focussed on creating videos for:
We also concentrated on festival posts to connect with the B2C audience and let everybody know - who's the best in India's Real Estate Sector.

Our unique and innovative digital marketing strategy resulted in 86.1K engagements and more than 3K clicks to the website. Our campaign also resulted in an increased 64.3% follower rate across the social media channels.
