The Nevada Housing Division hired us to encourage home buying throughout the state. We worked with them to create their Home Is Possible (HIP) program.
With many organizations crowding the market with messaging, first we needed to break through the clutter. Then, in the post-mortgage and foreclosure crisis days, we needed to be perceived as a credible resource that was also approachable.
We developed a recognizable, approachable brand under the Home Is Possible (HIP) moniker to encourage potential homebuyers to enter or re-enter the market. The brand’s playful personality — and generous program benefits — struck a chord with target audiences.
- Website — The playful persona has been carried throughout the website with not a hint of the governmental bureaucracy and formality one typically finds in
- YouTube — Custom videos were created (and boosted) to share real estate information in a fun way.
- Collateral — Brochures and editable flyers were provided for lender and real estate partners to easily introduce the program to their clients.
- Strategic Communications — Media relations, blogs, social media and grassroots activities are used on an ongoing basis to educate Nevadans about the programs, as well as the joys and responsibilities of home ownership.
