Advertising Campaign Success for a Tool Company

O'Reilly DePalma created an effective, low-cost advertising campaign to help Ames Taping Tools rebuild awareness and preference for its finishing tools among wall and ceiling contractors.


O'Reilly DePalma recommended a cost-efficient media buy and developed supporting creative to communicate the Ames value proposition to the contractor.

  • On a shoestring budget, generated earned media mentions in Architectural Record, Construction Dimensions and BUILDER magazine. 
  • Garnered two cover stories in Walls & Ceilings and Construction Dimensions Magazine.
