Digital Bromford hitting right buttons
BROMFORD Homes is going digital in a big way with a
user-friendly mix of web, social media and video that is already
creating a better online experience for customers.
In the last few months, we've relaunched the Bromford Homes
website with a top-to-bottom change that includes introducing a
much better new homes search section as well as much more frequent
Our first online video − a computer-generated
"fly-through" showing how one of our latest developments, St
Mark's View, could look when it's finished − was added to the
website this month and there are more videos to follow soon.
November also saw the launch of our first Facebook page − dedicated to the same
development, St Mark's View in Cheltenham.
At the same time, we've stepped up our Twitter activity −
doubling our followers in a matter of months.
The switch to a wider, smarter use of the web, social media and
video reflects demand from customers and a need to stay at the
cutting edge of the new homes sector, according to Bromford Homes
Sales and Marketing Director Bev Hall.
"The time was right for us to invest in creating what we believe
will rank alongside the best new homes websites − and we've had
some very positive feedback from customers," she says.
"We've added great new features, such as our new search pages,
to help customers get the very best out of us and what we have to
offer to meet their new home needs.
"What's more, the technology behind the new site means it works
really well for customers if they are browsing on a smartphone or
any of the other new mobile devices they use to access the web.
"At the same time, we've really embraced the use of social media
so that we can communicate in a more effective way with our
customers and stakeholders.
"Video is also a really powerful way of communicating with
people. Of course, what you see on the website at the moment is
only the start − we will keep adding more videos as the weeks and
months go by."
Sales consultant Fabio Scimeca is at the forefront of the
Bromford Homes digital revolution as the colleague in day-to-day
charge of updating the new St Mark's View Facebook page linked to
our great outright sale development that's now starting to take
shape of Tennyson Road, Cheltenham.
Fabio says: "People are definitely enthusiastic about the
development and, although it's still early days, we're getting a
lot of positive feedback through the Facebook page.
"It's the first time we've done this and we're keen to use it as
a platform for local businesses and community groups as well as
keeping local people in touch with what's going on at our St
Mark's View development.
"We've also had lots of really positive comments from people
who've seen our fabulous fly-through video which gives them an idea
of what St Mark's View will look like when the building work is
Bev is equally enthusiastic. "It only takes a few moment to
watch this fly-through video and yet it really brings the plans to
life in a way that no number of words could," she says.
"The digital revolution is here and Bromford Homes is determined
to make the most of the opportunities it gives us to communicate in
a more powerful and immediate way with our customers and
