Marran got their new banner ad by running a design contest:
Google Display Ads for Marran Security
Check out Marran's Banner ad contest…
We install security systems for homes and businesses, home automation (smart home products), and provide 24/7 central station monitoring. We install systems for free, or at reduced cost, when a customer signs up for 5 years of monitoring (at $24.99/month). When a customer switches to us, if they already have an alarm system, we give them a year of monitoring for free if they sign up for 3 years at $24.99 after that.
What's your vision?
We're looking for ads that will convince people to switch their central station monitoring provider (that's the person who calls you when your alarm goes off, and notifies the police, ambulance, or fire department if you need help). We want them to switch to us, getting the same (or probably better) monitoring, for a lower price than they're currently paying. We want the ads to be designed for the Google display network. We believe that the year of free monitoring that they get when they switch will be a big selling point (they have to sign up for three years at 24.99/month to get the year free). Switching your alarm company to us is free. Most people in our market pay around 30/month or more, so we're offering pretty significant savings. Our central station is 24/7/365, UL listed, and CSAA 5 diamond certified. We have an extremely quick response time when our customers' alarms go off. Please feel free to use any photos from our website for the ads if you like. We'd like to keep the banner ads at least relatively simple (please don't go crazy putting too much information in—I've included way more information here than you could use).
We're looking to test different ads, so we may choose multiple winners. We're also looking for a designer to do more projects with through 99designs, since our old design person doesn't freelance anymore. Our website is www.marransecurity.com. We will be directing the ad clicks to a landing page on our site. One of our catchphrases is "Is Your Alarm Company Robbing You?" We're not entirely sure if we want to be associated with that phrase, though, or if we even want to use that phrase at all, so we may want to keep our name off ads that have that phrase, and put our name and logo on ads that don't include that phrase. I'm including some past designs, but the new ads don't need to match those at all—it's just to give you an idea of what we've done. Another potential catchphrase could be: "Save on your alarm bill—switch to a company you can trust," but we're open to other ideas. Some of the sizes we like are 336x280, 728x90, 300x250, and 300x600, but we're very open to other sizes as long as they're supported by the Google Display Network in the United States. I've also included some of our postcard ads to give you an idea of other advertising we've done (once again, no need to match it). All attached files remain property of their respective owners (Marran Oil LLC, Macrae Marran, or Honeywell). They cannot be used for any purpose other than the creation of ads for us. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, or need other files that I forgot to include here. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their banner ad.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Marran collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected 2 winners!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
