August, 2012 Client News

CARLSBAD, Calif. – August 20, 2012 – Elevator, a Carlsbad-based creative agency, was honored with two Silver Stevie® Awards in the marketing category on behalf of work performed for their client Lantronix, Inc. in the launch of the company’s xPrintServer™ – Network Edition. Elevator received awards for the Best B2B Marketing Campaign of the Year and the Best Small-Budget Marketing Campaign of the Year (less than $3 million).

Elevator led the creative strategy on the “I Can Print” video campaign. The campaign featured a viral launch video in support of the company’s iOS print enabling device, the xPrintServer™ – Network Edition, which was promoted online, on the website, at events, embedded in releases, and more. As a result of producing and distributing the video, Lantronix recognized more than 400 percent return on investment on their marketing investment within just three months of launching the xPrintServer. At the end of six months, the product achieved an overall return of more than 200 percent, recouping costs of all engineering, research and development and other integral product investments. Click here to see the launch video produced by Elevator for Lantronix.

Now in its tenth year, The American Business Awards is the nation’s premier business awards program. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to honorees during a gala banquet on June 18, 2012 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York.
