ZipBox celebrates launch with four fantastic giveaways!

As many of you may be aware, over the last month NovaLoca have been celebrating the official launch of ZipBox by giving away 10 fantastic prizes! ZipBox is a game changing web solution for commercial property professionals. Clients including Airlink and Reddin-Clancy have had great success so far with their ZipBox websites.

Each week we sent out a newsletter with instructions on how to enter each giveaway! The giveaway entries were simple, with entrants re-tweeting ZipBox tweets on Twitter or liking ZipBox Linkedin posts. Entrants also had a chance at winning by entering via the ZipBox website!

The Competitions

Our 4 fantastic giveaways linked to 4 very important themes relating to ZipBox websites.

The first giveaway focussed on the importance of mobile optimisation for commercial property websites. Half of all visits to NovaLoca are via a tablet or mobile device. ZipBox addresses this issue by providing everything a commercial property business needs to create a mobile responsive, modern and professional website within a matter of days.

Glenfiddich ZipBox Websites

Prize 1: 2 x bottles of Glenfiddich

The second giveaway was all about the importance of having a commercial property website. Miranda Munn, Managing Director of NovaLoca, commented: “ZipBox is our solution to a problem many clients have expressed to us over the years; they simply don’t have the time, expertise or desire to invest large sums of money in their online presence. ZipBox removes the stress, making it quick and easy for commercial property professionals to upgrade and future-proof their website.”

Chocolates Websites

Prize 2: 5 x boxes of Hotel Chocolat

The third giveaway was themed around challenges commercial property agents face when managing their website. It can be expensive, time consuming and difficult to keep a website up to date. Fortunately, ZipBox makes it easy with a simple Content Management System (CMS) that lets you add, delete and edit your content.

Polo Shirt  Websites

Prize 3: 2 x Euro 2016 polo shirts

The fourth and final giveaway looked into how a mobile optimised, easy-to-use commercial property website helps you stand out from the competition. ZipBox’s responsive design looks great on mobile devices, helping your website get ahead of the competition and the search gives your website users the ability to quickly filter by property location, type and size!

FitBit Websites

Prize 4: a FitBit Charge HR!

Giveaway polls

We also ran a number of polls through the 4 weeks of giveaways! We found out the following from all of your entries:

Poll 1:

Entrants were asked whether they have a website optimised for mobile. A huge 32% of you don’t have a mobile-optimised website! In 2015, searches conducted on mobile browsers exceeded those on a desktop. As a result, Google now ranks mobile optimised sites higher than non-optimised sites when a search is performed on a mobile.

Poll 2:

Entrants were asked what they thought the most important feature of a commercial property website is and a whopping 94% of you think that property search is the biggest success factor! ZipBox’s search is powered by the NovaLoca engine, giving your website users the ability to quickly filter by property location, type and size!

Poll 3:

Entrants were asked what the biggest challenge was for them when managing their website. A huge 75% of you find that lack of time is the biggest challenge! Fortunately, ZipBox makes it easy, with a simple Content Management System (CMS) that lets you add, delete and edit your content. With a direct link to NovaLoca’s property feed, you only have to add new properties once, keeping your site fresh and saving you time.

Poll 4:

Entrants were asked how they believed their website compared to competitors. 52% of you find that your website is better than your competitors! Whilst this is fantastic, there’s nearly half of you who aren’t so sure. ZipBox’s responsive design works well on all devices, helping your website get ahead of the competition.

ZipBox manages everything for you, taking the stress out of your website and leaving you to focus on what you do best. For more information visit, call 01767 313428 or email
