How we worked with

Manchester Apartments

Who are they? Manchester Apartments are a leading lettings and property management company. For over 20 years, the team have been leading the market when it comes to providing high-quality, city centre apartments to international students, graduates and young professionals.
Why did they come to us? Whilst the business was generating thousands of enquiries a month for the team, and letting the majority of their portfolio 12 months in advance without viewings, there was CRM in place to report on results, no long-term strategy for planning ahead and the website had not been revisited for several years, and therefore did not align with the scale of the business.

What we did

  • Marketing Plans
  • Strategy Audit
  • Project Management
  • CRM & Email Marketing

The brief

Define the strategy, create a 12 month budget, improve reporting and the online experience.

Challenges we had to overcome:

  • No formalised way to report on the enquiries coming in every month
  • No set KPIs for the in-house team to work towards each month
  • A lack of consideration for content marketing to engage with customer

  • A lack of communication between lettings and marketing
  • A poor online customer experience and little consideration for SEO

The solution

How we got the job done

  • A full channel audit of the previous 12 months to inform KPIs for the year ahead
  • A budget signed off 12 months in advance to stop monthly spend sign-offs
  • Creation of regular blog articles sent to the database to break up sales emails
  • A weekly meeting with the lettings team to asses how effective each channel is
  • A new website, an improved online experience and a wider range of content
  • Introduction of SEO to decrease reliance on other paid channels over time
