Go Beyond What’s Expected. Your brand is your most powerful marketing advantage, and the secret behind your success. Is it by design? Don’t leave your business performance to chance. Your brand speaks in everything that you say and do, and your customers form perceptions based upon your brand promises – what they see and hear in the sales centre, while visiting your sites, or talking to your staff. Are you living up to your brand promises for each and every customer and delivering a quality customer experience? Leverage the word of mouth equity that you can generate through positive customer and employee experiences – in a world where consumers are drowning in, and tuning out, traditional advertising messages. 2

Building your Brand,After the Sale. Maintaining open, honest and consistent communication with your homeowners is the key to delivering an exceptional customer experience – marketing your brand doesn’t end at the time of sale, you have only just begun the conversation. 1. Homeowner Playbook | The home buying process is incredibly complex and over whelming for most homebuyers. Adding to this frustration is an endless amount of impersonal communication, such as form letters, brochures, handouts, fact sheets and notifications. This informational clutter is hard for the customer to absorb since messaging may not be consistent, and the information may not be provided at the right time, if at all. Take control of your customer communication by presenting each and every homebuyer a comprehensive homeowner playbook at the time of purchase that contains all the information they need in one book. 2. Stay connected to your customers ... for life | HomeProfile® makes it easy and affordable for builders and developers to deliver the same outstanding service, quality, and value to their clients after the home closes that they work so hard to provide during the construction phase. This translates directly into happier, better informed homeowners while creating a better reputation for the builder. HomeProfile® also gives homeowners the ability to submit their service or warranty requests online, after which the builder is notified via email and may access the builder’s HomeProfile® account to manage service requests, create work orders, add notes on progress, and archeive service requests for risk management. Reports are available to measure effectiveness and uncover inefficiencies.
