In challenging times we feel it is important to support the industry at every level. In order to offer installers greater marketing and digital support, a further five free virtual tours will be given away this month thanks to the support of Morley Glass & Glazing.

With social distancing changing business methods, the virtual world and digital benefits now play a pivotal and very relevant role for installers who are looking for new business.

Last month saw such a positive result in relation to the virtual tour giveaways, and with the kind generosity of Morley Glass, who provided funding for an additional 6th tour, it has been possible to support the installers in this sector. The winners were announced on Friday night with the @fendigital and @glazingblogger periscope discussion.

The first five winners were – Options Glazing, Exeter doors & windows, Droysldon Glass, Alexander Windows and Window plus, because of the massive demand Ian Short of Morley Glass decided to give away a 6th which was given to DGA Frames.

With the Fenestration Digital, Morley Glass and the NFAs working together, installers can benefit from this latest marketing support solution. Virtual showrooms provide an excellent resource to highlight product quality and the associated product guarantees, using videos and visual presentations to homeowners.

COVID-19 has brought the digital world into focus, but beyond its parameters, for people who are unable to visit showrooms or for people who have disabilities, this virtual world offers an ideal solution to understand the products and what can be gained from them.

For companies such as McDermott Windows, the virtual tours have proved invaluable. Having spoken to a number of installers, they are delighted with how easy it is to use the virtual tours and upload them onto a website. You can see the case study video on how it works and why Emma and Stephen wanted to use this tech on this video link-

The National Fenestration Awards, Fenestration Digital, Morley Glass and VideoProduction4 have once again joined forces to give away a further five free virtual showrooms, which incorporate interactive hotspots that highlight the advantages of products.

A new competition has now been launched for installers as well as for fabricators who wish to distribute this marketing support out to their installer network. Ian Short at Morley Glass has donated a further five tours for installers – the closing date for entries is Wednesday 10th June 2020, with winners announced on 12th June via Periscope.
