The Challenge:

Buffington Homes was working with another marketing agency to manage their digital marketing. When results weren’t being delivered, Buffington contacted Divining Point for help. During the initial conversation, Buffington Homes also mentioned that their website wasn’t generating enough leads via web submission forms.

The Solution:

Starting with a small engagement focused on Facebook content and management, Divining Point proved to be a valuable marketing partner by raising brand awareness and driving traffic to the Buffington Homes website. The business relationship flourished, and Divining Point provided marketing consulting for defining Buffington’s overall digital strategy. Divining Point assumed management of Buffington Homes’ Google AdWords account, which led to a 60% reduction in ad budget and a remarkable increase in monthly leads.
