5 money burning


with your property development’s marketing?


1. No Effective branding

A brand is the most valuable piece of real estate in the world. In the competitive real estate market, first impressions matter. Homebuyers encounter a plethora of information daily, making it challenging to retain everything they learn. That’s why memorable branding is paramount to our strategic advertising plans. We focus on creating emotional and aspirational branding that resonates with potential buyers, ensuring that our clients’ projects stand out in a crowded marketplace. An emotional and aspirational brand generates stronger engagement and has a higher chance of converting into successful sales.


2. Under Estimating the Power of Social Media

Digital communication is oxygen to your business. Social media platforms have become indispensable tools for advertising and marketing in almost every industry, especially property development. The digital revolution has transformed the way people search for properties and make purchasing decisions. Some property developers, however, underestimate the potential of digital marketing, leading them to overlook key online channels and social media platforms. As a result, they miss out on valuable opportunities to engage with an extensive audience of potential buyers. Our Creative Technologists can communicate directly with your potential buyers via Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads and LinkedIn Ads. By using a combination of algorithms, SEO and audience targeting we can tap into where your target markets spend a significant portion of their time and generate qualified leads, boost website traffic, increase brand awareness and grow engagement to ultimately sell out your project cost effectively.


3. Poorly Designed Websites and Lack Lustre Collateral

In the digital age, a well-designed website is crucial for any property development project. If your digital communications are not engaging, it’s not selling. Unfortunately, some developers cut corners with their online presence, leading to poorly designed websites and even more poorly designed marketing collateral. A lack of user-friendly features, outdated content, generic stock images or unappealing CGIs can discourage potential buyers from exploring the development further. We showcase your project and create engaging content that brings your brand to life through organic and meaningful dialogue that emotionally connections to your customers.


4. Neglecting your Target Audience

One of the biggest mistakes property developers make is launching advertising campaigns without a deep understanding of their target audiences. Failing to identify and comprehend the preferences, needs, and demographics of potential buyers can lead to wasted marketing budgets and ineffective outreach. We work closely with Sales Agents on all of our projects, keeping the line of communication open throughout the whole process. By using analytics to better understand your target markets, we can improve your content and help you develop effective programming and advertising strategies. Consequently, we can optimise and focus on reaching the right audiences, increasing return on investment and fast tracking the project’s success.


5. Failing to use video content

In today’s digital age, video content has emerged as one of the most compelling and influential tools in communication strategies. However, it is surprising how many property developers fail to capitalise on its full potential in their advertising efforts. Neglecting to incorporate engaging video content into your communication strategy can be significant missed opportunities, hindering your ability to effectively showcase the essence and most compelling features of your development videos and subsequently decreasing potential reach. We understand how to showcase and sell your project with professional photography and videography for websites, social media, CPC Ads, brochures and collateral.

Our aim is to make our clients incredibly successful.

In the competitive landscape of property development, avoiding money burning mistakes in advertising and marketing is vital for success. By establishing a strong project brand voice, leveraging social media, developing a strong online presence, prioritising target audience analysis and creating engaging content, property developers can optimise their marketing efforts and maximise their return on investment. A well-executed advertising and marketing strategy can significantly boost the desirability of a property development project, leading to increased interest from potential buyers and a higher rate of sales and success within budget and expected timeliness.
