Ugly Belgian Websites
Combell is known for their domain name & webhosting services, but also allows you to build your own website. To boost Combell’s brand awareness we thought of a fun earned first PR campaign. Why not go where people need Combell the most?
We set out a search to track down the ugliest Belgian websites to give one winner a total website renovation (including professional photography, copywriting, logo design) and 10 years of free hosting and domain name! We teamed up with Hannes “Ugly Belgian Houses” Coudenys and put together a jury with the necessary IT and aesthetic knowledge to decide on the winner. With the help of a few press releases and a collaboration with 6 influencers, Ugly Belgian Websites became a known topic both in print and online.
