CARDIFF, WALES, September 06, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — Consumer data specialists Tracesmart have been shortlisted for a new industry award. Following the submission of an application into the ‘Best PR/Advertising Campaign’ category of the CSA (Credit Services Association) Awards, the Tracesmart Corporate ‘Nobody home?’ campaign has made the shortlist.The winner is to be announced at the CSA’s annual Gala Dinner, which concludes the CSA & DBSG (Debt Buyers and Sellers Group) Conference in Brighton later this month.
Tracesmart’s ‘Nobody home?’ entry, employs a variety of promotional mediums to communicate its message. The campaign promotes the Tracesmart Corporate data cleansing and debtor services, which can be utilised to verify debtor residency and trace people.
The message which the campaign conveys is that Tracesmart’s services make it simple to confirm whether a debtor is resident or not – a task which is even more pertinent in the current economic climate, as more individuals attempt to avoid paying debt. Commenting on the imagery used to symbolise how difficult it can be to confirm residency, Adam Smith – Tracesmart’s Marketing Manager – commented,
"Our creative brainstorming session led to the idea of a vacant house to symbolise someone who may no longer be resident, however this concept did not deliver the striking imagery we required. It eventually evolved into the more abstract concept of an empty tortoise shell. This image ticked all the boxes; whilst the shell appears empty, it could still have a resident, thus epitomising the problem of confirming debtor residency." The concept has clearly worked for Smith’s team as Tracesmart have seen impressive results from the campaign. Commenting on the effectiveness of the ‘Nobody home?’ campaign, Chris Rothwell – Sales Director for Tracesmart – remarked, "The campaign’s creative concept has been well received by the industry and this has been reflected in the campaign results to date. So far, in comparison to our last financial year, lead generation is up 53% for the sector, which has significantly boosted sales of the services promoted by the campaign. From a brand awareness point of view, this campaign has definitely helped to highlight how we can help debt collection agencies and enforcers verify debtor residency and locate gone aways."
