Content Collaboration Boosts Web Traffic

Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Enjoys Best Year on Record

In January 2015, Ryan Homes, a leading national builder, engaged Illumine8 Marketing & PR to develop an Inbound marketing strategy to improve Brunswick Crossing’s sales.

The collaboration resulted in a remarkable sales turnaround that transformed Brunswick Crossing into one of the top 5 highest selling communities in Maryland.

The challenge

The Illumine8 and Brunswick Crossing collaboration faced three primary challenges. First, the partnership faced a compressed delivery timeline with a five month window for relaunching the marketing program. Second, marketing efforts had been dormant and sales were in a lull. And finally, the Brunswick Crossing website was older and lacking the marketing tools needed to capture, track and convert leads.

Illumine8 is a great asset for Ryan Homes at Brunswick Crossing. Their integrated marketing strategy continues to produce a steady stream of qualified home buying prospects for our organization. With their team handling the marketing program management and promotional heavy-lifting, our sales team has been freed to do what they do best---matching buyers to their dream homes while providing outstanding customer service.
