Dear colleagues,

After our last newsletter in summer we would like to inform you again about the status quo of our marketing activities. Enjoy reading. 


PRODUCTS / INNOVATION


KERA.iX SYSTEM

STATUS QUO

The project report for the first System.iX construction site in Bierstadt is in its final stages. It will then be published on our website and in various web portals.

In addition, we are currently planning a display campaign for the new System.iX. This will go live at the end of October. 

Also a 3D Animation of the whole system has been created for the website. This is available on the System.iX Landingpage.

NEXT STEPS

  • Publishing project report
  • Launch System.iX Campaign End of October

Currently, KERA.iX is only planned for the German market in 2020. The rollout plans are still being specified. 


 

DURA program


 

STATUS QUO

The transfer of all existing material (videos, documents, advertisements) in the required languages is almost done. Futhermore we are creating a 3D Movie that visualized the installation.

NEXT STEPS

  • Finalization of all documents in all required languagues 
  • Finalization of the 3D Movie and translation in required languages
  • Installation report

 

KERA.BOX & KERA.APP

STATUS QUO

Our KERA.Box Roadshow in Germany continued in Berlin. We presented the concept to a group of construction companies on site of the Berliner Wasserbetriebe in a live demo. You can read the article in the icomm: https://icomm.einstein.local/sites/news/Pages/0938959.aspx#/. Immediately after the event further boxes were ordered, which we are delighted about. Also a manual for customers has been created that supports the whole login and usage process of the service offering. 

NEXT STEPS

  • Translation of the manual for the Italien and Polish market.
  • The Italien Box will be delivered  as soon as we got the confirmation from the logistic company.  
  • Creation of a usage story for external communication.

In addition, we ask all of you to check with your customers who have already registered for the app whether everything is in order and whether orders have already been placed. If this is not the case, please offer to do it together. 

We still have to deepen the support regarding registration and ordering. It is not enough just to have the general declaration of consent signed.  


MOVIES / ANIMATION


3D Movie and Trailer

STATUS QUO

All movies have been translated and delivered in the required languages. Unfortunately, it has happened several times that trailers have to be translated again afterwards. This has to be optimized in the future because otherwise additional expenses arise. 

NEXT STEPS

We will always send the original video as a reference so that the translation fits better. Please also request this if this is not the case. Please also make sure that the first translation delivered is the result you want. 

We will upload the movies also on our YouTube Channel in every language, after we've promoted them on the other social channels (FB & LinkedIn). 


BUSINESS CARDS

SELF-ORDER

STATUS QUO

To make the ordering of new business cards more effective, we have prepared an order form.

NEXT STEPS

You will find the form on the i.Comm under the heading "Service". Please send the completed form to marketing_at_steinzeug-keramo.com. Our printing house sends you the business cards immediately after the order.


CHRISTMAS / NEW YEAR


 

CALENDARS

STATUS QUO

The four-month calendar and wall calendar are currently being edited in every language and printed.

NEXT STEPS

Calendars will be shipped approx. at the end of October.


 

Christmas Cards

STATUS QUO

Sustainability is not just a word or concept for us, we live it! This year, we will not print and send Christmas cards, but will offer a digital Christmas card by e-mail. 

NEXT STEPS

You will receive the design for digital Christmas card in a timely manner.


BROCHURES / DOCUMENTS


KERA Brochure

STATUS QUO

Every country got the last version of the KERA Brochure for a final check up.

NEXT STEPS

When we have received the last changes and feedback of the countries, the final version of the KERA brochure for the markets will be created. >> Once the KERA brochure has been completed in all languages, we can begin the reissue of the manuals.


REPORTS


CONSTRUCTION SITE REPORTS

STATUS QUO

The Checklist is available in the icomm: https://icomm.einstein.local/organisations/stg-de/service/Pages/Formulare-usw.aspx 

Please use this list to document the most important construction sites. 

NEXT STEPS

Please deliver 2 important construction site reports with pictures (or videos) as well as a description (Checklist) by the end of November. 


DIGITAL

CHAT

STATUS QUO

The Chat is live and available on the German website. Everything's going smoothly so far. There are already first users, but the frequency is still manageable. 

NEXT STEPS

We will continue to expand the test phase, supported by advertising measures. 


 

SOCIAL MEDIA

STATUS QUO

Social media is part of our communication and we call upon everyone again to participate, to follow us, to like and share contributions, to comment and to inform us about interesting contributions.  

The decision whether to create an English speaking group page and unite some country pages under it is still pending. Until the decision the Sales Engineers are responsible for the maintenance of the respective Facebook country pages. 

NEXT STEPS

Skype Training Sales Engineers "How to use Facebook" at the End of November.



 

FAQ

STATUS QUO

In order to answer frequently asked customer questions more quickly, a FAQ (Questions and Answers) has been created. This can be found on the website under Service & Support.

The FAQ is currently being translated into English. 


NEXT STEPS

All countries that also want to have a FAQ on their site can translate the English version as soon as it is available and add questions for your market.
