May 2018 saw NZCB launch a beautiful coffee table style publication called “Revere” showcasing the outstanding work of some of its nationwide members. In turn, providing members with an opportunity to leverage off this exposure to generate and increase sales leads and further brand awareness.
Revere which means “to regard with respect, tinge with awe and give a feeling of deep admiration” in turn gives value to NZCB and its members. Now distributed to all NZCB members, Revere will be making its way to the home owner target market, via architect’s offices, waiting rooms, libraries and coffee tables throughout the country.
A professional editorial highlighting the key components that made each project stand out was supported by beautiful professional photographs over two or four pages bringing each of these projects alive. Each of the homes have unique qualities such as technical aspects of the build, attention to detail, problem solving and realising the vision of the homeowner. They also included architectural design, location and many different materials.
Such a publication is a large financial undertaking and the Association does require some financial support from those members submitting successful material (approximately $1,000+gst for two pages and $2,000 +gst for four pages) and from a limited number of merchants/ regional partners that may also contribute to the magazine.
The intention is for Revere to be launched annually however, this will be dependent on the level of interest shown by our members. Ideally, we would like to feature builds that have been completed within two years of the publication being released.
