How B McMullin started their banner ad journey

Company name

ViewPoint Realty - PreList

Overview

Bill McMullin, founder and CEO of ServicePoint Inc, parent company of ViewPoint Realty, the providers of the popular local real estate portal in Nova Scotia, Canada at http://www.viewpoint.ca. ViewPoint.ca serves up over 1.2 million pages per month to consumers interested in real estate in Nova Scotia. We are a service engineering company passionate about making marketplaces more efficient. We love marketing to consumers and delighting them by giving them direct, easy and free access to real estate information that is comprehensive and useful. ViewPoint.ca is unique because it provides information on EVERY property and listing in Nova Scotia, not just those that are for sale. The types of information available include, current listings, actual selling prices, sales history, assessment data, school boundaries, street views, and aerial imagery. The average visitor views 28 pages and stays on the site over 11 minutes.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The markers and labels being sourced in this project will be used to launch a unique new service that targets homeowners who are considering selling their propertty. "PreList" will provider homeowners with the ability to 'dip their toe in the water' and give buyers an indication that are are considering selling. In just a few clicks, a homeowner can claim their property on our ViewPoint map then activate the listing for thousands of buyers to see. Their "PreListed" property will show up 'co-mingled' amongst formal (MLS) listings from hundreds of brokerages. Essentially, PreList gives the homeowner a shot at selling the property themselves at little or no expense or hassle.

Requirements

We need markers and labels designed for use on Google Maps. The marker and the label must incorporate the word "PreList". The marker should be designed in accordance with certain guidelines and be respectful of certain hard and soft constraints of the Google Maps environment.

For example, the marker should not be larger than 70 pixels wide or 40 pixels high. The marker should be wider than it is high. The smaller the better, but the first priority is that the word "PreList" is legible. The word "PreList" can be redesigned and re-oriented, for example the "Pre" can be stacked atop the list or the entire word can be placed at an angle for better use of the canvas. The marker should be designed such that it can carry a 'rider' such as the word "NEW" (as in new listing) or "SOLD".

The marker must be provided in PNG format. For guidelines and tips on creating good Google Maps markers, see http://code.google.com/p/google-map…Contribute

The label is essentially a variation of the marker that will be used in other places on the site. The label is more of a logo. We felt it was important to create the marker before the logo as the marker has more design constraints. There needs to be consistency between the marker and the label, but they do not have to be the same.

An crude example is attached for reference, but no need to follow anything in it!

Thanks for your interest in the project.
