Objectives

To increase its reach across the North East, Prince Bishop Homes wanted to reach out to 800,000 first time buyers in a cost effective manner, in order to increase the number of property enquires, viewings and subsequent sales via their website.

Solutions

Prince Bishop Homes produced content for their website that promoted the concept of Rent then Buy that focused on helping people to become mortgage ready.  Digital Allies took this content to market through a highly targeted social media campaign making use of Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.  Having first set up the company’s website analytics the audience targeting was refined to specific profiles matching typical profiles of people looking to rent or buy a new home.  Another layer of targeting was imposed on the campaign setting defined geographical targets to ensure that the searches were being conducted by people already local to the development sites.

Prince Bishop Homes experienced;

700%

uplift in property enquiries during the duration of the campaign

28.4%

uplift in property sales and lettings

36.3%

increase in reach (based on market share)

Average cost per contact was £0.51
