Challenge/Situation Analysis

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.

Approach 

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.

Tactics

  • Website — The playful persona has been carried throughout the website with not a hint of the governmental bureaucracy and formality one typically finds in
    government-run programs. 
  • 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.

 

Digital Results

  • An average of 72,306 website pageviews each month, a 309.88% increase from 2016

  • Twitter followers increased by 20.81% from 2014 to 2019

Virtual meetings come with their own set of challenges — namely, those related to creativity and collaboration. We have ideas. We tend to spend a good chunk of time at the beginning of most meetings
