From the 12th Annual Shorty Awards

The booj Platform: A Custom-Built Real Estate Technology System

Winner in Real Estate

About this entry

booj, the award-winning web development and software firm, was acquired by real estate pioneer RE/MAX to develop a technological ecosystem that streamlines the homebuying and selling processes for consumers and agents. In 2019, the booj team created and launched the booj Platform – an integrated suite of digital products including everything a real estate agent needs to manage their business – from a CRM, to digital marketing, to deal management software – all in one place.

Upon acquisition, the RE/MAX Social Media Team, with support from the RE/MAX Communications Team, and San Francisco-based agency Camp+King, created digital materials to support this product launch. With the targeted audience being RE/MAX agents looking to manage client relationships to drive business, the RE/MAX Social Media Team crafted user-focused content, released over a series of months to prevent ineffective information overload.

The primary goal of the booj Platform rollout was to familiarize agents with a brand-new technological ecosystem in an engaging way that presents technology as user-friendly. The key objective was to gain agents’ trust on a high-tech system, meaning that social media materials had to cater to those unfamiliar with technological diction, and the content had to be easily digestible. By breaking up content into multiple small video series and promoting on social media, agents were easily transitioned into the concept of booj. Additionally, the social team created content that stirred excitement, including: a video series featuring agents, GIF-inspired before and after posts, a movie poster teaser campaign and an educational Instagram campaign.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

The desired outcome in supporting the launch of the booj CRM over social media was to drive adoption and understanding of the platform to the network of RE/MAX brokers and agents, while telling the corporate story of RE/MAX evolving as a brand. The purpose was to familiarize potential users of the ins-and-outs of the platform through engaging, creative branded content for social media. Let’s face it – tech jargon can be dauting. The RE/MAX Social Media Team accepted the challenge of making technical information not just understandable, but exciting.

 

The RE/MAX Social Media Team was able to highlight these features and promote them through four primary assets used in the launch campaign for booj:

 

The collaboration between in-house communications departments as well as Camp+King made this a uniquely well-executed and successful campaign. The backbone of this campaign, The RE/MAX Social Media Team, is comprised of savvy strategists who can adapt to the everchanging marketplace and produce engaging content, whether it be maintaining a global Instagram campaign, creating branded GIFs, or launching a brand-new tech platform like booj. Versatility and adaptability make this globally recognized social team unique from others who stay within the boundaries of their niche industries.
