Russ Kiko Associates Inc., Auctioneers, of Canton, OH were honored to be the recipients of four 2008 Advertising Contest Awards at the Annual Ohio Auctioneers Association Convention in Columbus, OH.   Kiko won awards in the following four categories:  In-Office Produced Advertising, Newspaper or Trade Publication Advertisement, Auction in Action, and Website.


While the company has won several state and national advertising awards, but it has been a few years since they were able to capture the Website category.  In the fall of 2008 the company revamped their entire website and was again able to capture this category.  “We pride ourselves on staying abreast of technology and the needs of our website users. We’ve made extensive changes that we are very proud of.  It’s a great feeling to be recognized by our fellow auctioneers in the state of Ohio.” said Melissa Hooser, who headed the technology team in this revamp.  The improved website allows users to easily search for properties by location or by the type of sale the user is interested in.  The site also features a section with the results from recent auctions.  You can view this award winning site at


The other three awards were all produced in-house by Kiko’s advertising and marketing team.  This team works hard to make sure each and every auction receives personal attention.  “Marketing is such a key component in selling your real estate or personal property it’s important for us to produce high quality pieces for our clients.  These awards demonstrate our ability to take our client’s advertising to a higher level, which results in a more successful sale.” said Heather Marks, Kiko’s advertising manager.
