mRELEVANCE Designed “Say ‘I Do’ to Your New Home” for Keystone Custom Homes

Builder Magazine recently covered mRELEVANCE and client Keystone Custom Homes in its online edition after a successful pitch by our public relations team. The story centers on the builder’s successful Pinterest campaign, “Say ‘I Do’ to Your New Home,” developed by mRELEVANCE and features a Q&A with Keystone’s Vice President of Marketing and Information Technology, Janette Hawkins, and mRELEVANCE’s managing partner, Carol Morgan.

The online article,  which ran Nov. 10, praises mRELEVANCE and Keystone Custom Homes for a one-of-a-kind  marketing campaign designed to increase engagement on the builder’s Pinterest profile and spread awareness of its New Home Bridal Registry Program. This program allows engaged couples to register with Wells Fargo Bank to create a checking/savings account comprised of contributions made by themselves or friends and family.

Outsourcing salesThinking about outsourcing your sales? It’s becoming more and more popular in the building industry because doing so allows you to maintain a sales force without having to manage a team in-house. An outsourced sales team can provide professional marketing, sales and operational support to builders through all stages of the new home sales process. However, just like you would hire a new employee, it’s important to be comfortable with the decision to hire a sales company. After all, they will be an integral part of your company’s continued success. When outsourcing sales, ask these questions:

1.    What is your/your company’s experience in new home sales and marketing?
Make sure that the company has experience with new homes, not just resale. Seek out agents with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) CSP, MSCP and/or CMP and MIRM designations, as they will possess the most knowledge on and strongest skills for new home sales and marketing. The National Association of REALTORS ® (NAR) also offers a host of professional home sales designations for professionals. Agents who hold these professional designations are current on the processes and trends of the industry and will be the ones with the greatest proficiency and expertise in sales. (more…)
