New Metal Roofing Television Campaign

The Metal Roofing Alliance recently launched the television advertising portion of our consumer marketing plan, which started running in April and ends in November. This year’s TV campaign is expected to deliver some of the highest media impressions in MRA’s history.

The TV spot is being run on CNN, Fox News, HGTV, Golf Channel and the Weather Channel, among others.  Each outlet has been thoroughly researched and chosen for its ability to reach our target audience.

This national advertising runs for 10 weeks, break in July and August and then runs for another 14 weeks, for a total of 24 weeks. MRA is utilizing our three existing testimonial commercials that have proven to help drive consumers to the MRA website. The television campaign is expected to deliver an estimated 188 million impressions nationwide.

In an effort to capture consumers at various points of the roofing consideration funnel, the campaign features a mix of digital, television and paid search engine advertising (pay-per-click).

In addition to our television advertising, the MRA has partnered with content/digital networks Goodway and Haven Home to create a highly targeted online campaign that will deliver nearly 30 million additional impressions over a period of eight months, which cover Spring, Summer and Fall.

Working closely with the MRA, Haven Home produced several 30 second VidTips – instructional videos that feature MRA content. These videos run in relevant environments.  They’re also featured on the MRA YouTube channel and Facebook Page.   The videos cover a variety of topics including:

  • Many Benefits of Residential Metal Roofing
  • Value of Find-A-Contractor Tool
  • “My Metal Roof” Roofing Visualizer Tool
  • “Above All You Need a Great Roof” Metal Roofing Book

Thanks to the support of our members, the MRA is spending a significant amount of the marketing budget on television advertising. Research shows that spending at this level is a key driver for increasing sales in the metal roofing market. And while the TV campaign just got started, our members are already seeing the rewards.

Looking at one month’s worth of consumer leads this year compared to last year, we are up a strong 74% delivering over 1,000 leads to our member contractors. This increase is largely driven by the TV campaign that generates interest in residential metal roofing!
