BAM 2014 Year In Review

Screen Shot 2014-12-19 at 11.39.04 AM

It’s hard to believe 2014 is almost over already. For the team here at BAM, it’s been phenomenal. As we do every year, we continued to grow – adding new team members and big new clientsI’m confident that we’re now the strongest we’ve ever been.

As we prepare to say farewell to 2014 and welcome in a New Year, I thought it would be a great opportunity to look at some of the great things we’ve done this year:

We Launched Marketing Automation

I spoke a lot this year about marketing automation, which is all about providing customers with a personalized experience, and how excited we were about the benefits that this type of relationship building creates for our clients. Well, we officially began offering this service as of September 2014. We’ve been deploying personalized e-blasts and targeted website content for Queensville, and we’re currently implementing personalization into our upcoming projects for 2015.

We Drove Sales

I always say that when our clients win, we win. So you can imagine how happy we were to see clients like Empire Communities achieve an astounding 1000 sales this year and long-time associate and friend Sean Mason – who launched his own company this year – have such a successful opening.

We Got Exciting New Clients

We started to work on some big projects this year like Queensville, a huge new development north of Newmarket, for Aspen Ridge, CountryWide and Lakeview. We also, as I touched on already, helped green builder Sean Mason launch his company, Sean Homes, which is the most exciting new development project in the history of Barrie. We also began working on some exciting new communities that will be launching in 2015, such as New Seaton in North Pickering (for Aspen Ridge, Brookfield, CountryWide and TowerHill) and a London multi-use site for Sifton.

We Became Certified

This year BAM became a Google AdWords Certified Partner. Over the last five years, we’ve really been pushing the envelope to better manage our clients’ digital marketing campaigns. With brand new team members in our eBAM department and in client services, we are performing at our highest level ever.

We Won Awards

It’s always great to stand behind our clients as they are recognized for their successes – and this year presented a few opportunities for us to do just that! We attended the 34th annual BILD awards, where Green Builder of the Year (Low-Rise) was awarded to Empire Communities. Brookfield Residential and BAM were also awarded with the newest BILD award for the year –Best New Video. All in all, we were nominated for over 10 different awards!

I’m excited for whatever 2015 has in store for us – and likewise, what BAM has in store for it. I’d like to thank all of our supporters, and wish you all a happy and prosperous New Year.
