Thought Leadership

A place to keep up-to-date with the latest marketing trends

Project Marketing, Strategy

It all starts with the customer.

If your project is in the infancy of its brand development, there is an ideal opportunity to design and finesse the customer journey from the get-go.

 

Refining the customer journey will inform key decision making for the overall project and marketing strategy. This will help to reduce the cost of sale in the long-term and increase certainty in sales.

 

Property Republic has developed a model and methodology that, with input from the internal project team and external partners, will enhance the customer experience, engage prospects, purchasers and residents, and create a vibrant community – leaving a positive legacy for the developer’s brand.

 

 At Property Republic, we take a holistic view of project marketing that creates consistent results, increased control and better conversion. Our approach dives deep into the strategy, standards and structure required to achieve sell out success.

 

We use nine ‘accelerators’ to develop the road map to this success. These accelerators have been developed by our Founder Judi Carr, a property sales and marketing sage with over 25 years’ experience.

 

We are certain that our measured approach will deliver more qualified leads to the sales team at a cheaper cost per conversion and anticipate that our methodology will upskill your project team every step of the way.

 

Our Nine Accelerators for Success

1. Value proposition
Understanding your value proposition allows your project team to align future decision making and initiatives with the core purpose of your project. This is where we conduct a workshop with your project team to define the Value Proposition.

 

In this workshop, we will identify the pains and gains of three customer segments you want to focus on. From here we will align them with what’s on offer at your project to truly identify the project’s value proposition.

 

2. Project lifecycle framework
Nurturing your leads through the project lifecycle helps attract a more qualified lead, at a cheaper cost per acquisition and conversion. Once your value proposition is defined per segment, the lifecycle plan is the most important approach to continual and steady success of the project. Our work in this area includes:

 

– Developing the customer experience map per segment
– Developing the content nurturing strategy per segment
– Developing the range of presentations required such as builder, sales centre, Zoom, email, telephone, shopping centre
– Identifying areas of digital execution and automation
– Developing the sales follow-up plan


3. Lead generation
The Lead Generation Blueprint will provide your project with a range of tools for use throughout the life of the project. These include the following strategies:

– Signage hierarchy (what signs with what messages are used where)
– Builder engagement
– Customer referral
– Media buying
– Events

4. Community contribution

A strategic approach to community development aligns community needs and project resources to produce tangible, sustainable benefits.

 

From a new development point of view, community development can be defined as the soft and hard infrastructure that creates a sustainable community. The Community Development Plan will explore the following elements:

 

– Community brokerage
– Build capacity
– Linkages and networks
– Partnerships
– Physical form


5. Product and pricing
Larger residential communities sometimes present the opportunity to create precincts that allow for different product price points and aesthetics. The Precinct Strategy explores:

 

– Strategic locations
– Hard and soft landscaping treatments
– Lot mix
– Housing product design guidelines
– Price point differentials
– Sustainability initiatives
– Access points
-Relationship to nearby facilities
-Timing

 

6. Celebrated launch
Planning a project launch involves the project team working towards a common goal and is not only the responsibility of the sales agency, but also the infrastructure providers, creative agency, landscape team – the entire project team. It’s essential to document expectations in a Launch Strategy and Plan.


7. Market leading strategy
After identifying the:

 

– Value Proposition
– Project Lifecycle Framework
– Lead Generation Blueprint
– Community Development Plan
– Precinct Strategy
– Launch Strategy and Plan

 

we document the marketing and sales strategy or, as we like to call it, the Game Plan. The Game Plan will bring all the information together and become the reference point for the project team.

 

8. Consumer consciousness
Having access to data and being able to interpret and analyse it for the ‘so what’s’ is an imperative part of making great marketing decisions.

 

Our experience tells us that every week within a project team, someone asks for an additional piece of data, which results in lengthy reports being created for one person’s pleasure, which eats up time and resources.

 

Agreeing upfront what needs to be reported, how often and for what purpose can save time and money and allow decision makers to make great sales and marketing decisions.

 

9. Keeping on track
It’s important to keep on track and continue the momentum gained by a successful sales launch. And within each development business, it’s vital to build capacity so that there is continuity in strategy and messaging. The Property Republic team checks in on a monthly basis for the first six months.

Content Marketing, Lead Nurture
You’ve created an email with compelling copy and a punchy subject line, but it’s not performing well.  That’s despite the 2019 statistics from HubSpot saying that 99% of consumers check their email everyday and 59% of respondents claim that marketing emails influence their purchase decisions.   Here are some possible reasons why your emails aren’t converting:  Your Call-to-Action is weak Having a sub-par call-to-action is almost as bad as having no CTA at all! Even if your subject line offers a gripping hook, and your email copy proves irresistible, you’ll receive better results if

Customer Experience
Three months ago, I signed up to a 30-Day fitness challenge at a gym in Ascot Vale.After driving past the gym multiple times and finding myself intrigued by its night-club aesthetic, I decided to follow them on Instagram. I was instantly entertained by their fun and cheeky captions, and also felt extremely motivated by their posts, which featured a range of workout videos and success results.   A few days after following them on Instagram, I was greeted with a personalised direct message from a member of the team:“Thanks for following

Customer Experience
In terms of overall value for money, especially when it comes to ROI for customer service, the fast-food restaurant industry rarely skips a beat. Sure, sometimes you might get annoyed if they left a pickle in your cheeseburger when you specifically ask for it without, but it’s barely equivalent to the disappointment home builders are faced with when it comes to title and construction delays. Australian food chain burger specialist, Grill’d, has taken this one step further and introduced a feedback stick – literally. Eat-in diners have their standard cutlery

Lead Nurture
Over 12 months ago I conducted a workshop with a project team. The objective was to collaboratively devise a marketing and sales plan to deliver the very large number of sales required. One of the first questions I asked of the Sales Manager was, “How many prospects do you have on the database?” Him (proudly): “7,000” Me: “And on average, what is your conversion rate?” Him (proudly): “10%” Me: “So, based on those numbers, if we spent no money on generating new enquiry this year, we could achieve the sales

I love working with a talented General Manager or Project Director. One who knows enough about marketing to ask the right questions but is also smart enough to provide the marketing function with the right resources and tools to ensure they achieve the business goals. I love working with a great Development Manager. One who knows enough about marketing to ask the right questions but is also smart enough to work with the marketer not against them. It’s not, “your budget vs. my budget” it’s, “how can we deliver what’s

I recently read a LinkedIn article by Kaitlyn Gillies, entitled Treat your Marketing Consultant like your GP. Gillies, in her compelling article, compares the way general practitioners’ knowledge, advice and medical recommendations are received, versus that of marketing experts by businesses. “We respect the advice of medical practitioners because they have knowledge, training, skills and experience that give them authority to advise us on what is best for our health. The same goes for working with a marketing professional or agency.” And I’ve got to say, she makes one hell

Customer Experience, Lead Nurture
There’s no denying that the Australian property market has corrected itself in some states.  In Victoria, developers have enjoyed years of good times, with blocks virtually selling themselves, apartment sales overseas in abundance and large profits banked. Today, we have to work harder to achieve sales success. So, when the going gets tough, why has it become common practice to cut back on marketing spend when you should be reviewing and refining your marketing efforts, and spending just as much or even more on effective and engaging strategies? Here are

Customer Experience
While buying a property is perhaps the largest purchase decision an individual will make in their lifetime, many property developers don’t place a big enough emphasis on customer service. Delivering an exemplary customer experience can only be achieved when the entire organisation places the customer journey at the forefront of all strategies and initiatives.
