Promotion - Frequently Asked Questions
The scheme is being promoted to IGU processors and window companies along with general trade through a continuous press advertising, PR and direct mail campaign to enable development of a national network of suppliers and retailers. A major part of the benefit of getting involved in the scheme is our ongoing promotion to householders including coverage in home interest journals and on-line marketing through search engines such as Google to direct homeowners to our Partner's websites.[ top ]
A range of printed and point of sale materials has been produced to support promotion and sales by Pilkington energikare™ partners. Advertising to both trade and consumers is planned to further stimulate interest. Also www.pilkington.co.uk/energikare will enable customers to find out more about Pilkington energikare™, browse and download product information and find suppliers.[ top ]
