Phoenix, AZ (May 16, 2012) — Shell Vacations Hospitality (SVH) is excited to announce the receipt of two AMA Phoenix Awards for its Black Friday Campaign and site redesign. The Tenth Annual AMA Phoenix Spectrum Awards, distributed May 9, were given to the best and brightest of the marketing world, with categories ranging from Interactive/Online to Print to Direct Response.
Shell Vacations Hospitality won awards in the following categories:
- Interactive/Online – Microsite for the Black Friday Campaign
- Interactive/Online – Website – E-Commerce for the Shell Hospitality Website redesign
The Black Friday Travel Sale took the best Interactive/Online – Microsite title for the second consecutive year, offering users a unique special each day for a month, leading up to a four-day sale period during which time users could win gift cards and hotel stays in exchange for email and text opt-ins. Launched by SVH and HeBS Digital, the campaign generated a 50% year-over-year increase in revenue over last year’s award-winning sale.
The redesigned http://www.shellhospitality.com boasted easy-to-use drop-down menus, a built-in online reservations system and vivid images of Shell’s resorts and hotels. Designed by HeBS Digital, the site operates as a portal to more information about Shell Vacations’ various properties and a travel guide to dozens of destinations.
“We are honored to accept these prominent awards from AMA Phoenix,” said Shallana Edwards, Director of eMarketing for Shell Vacations Hospitality. “We were able to boost year-over-year revenue while bolstering future marketing efforts by building social media, email and mobile opt-in numbers. Shell Vacations would like to thank AMA Phoenix for recognizing the creativity of our campaign and the functionality of our redesigned website.”
