The Brief

Rainmaker Marketing was tasked to implement a strategy and create marketing material that not only portrayed the exclusivity and luxury of The Pearls of Umhlanga brand, but that fulfilled a very specific campaign, which was to create a ‘fear of missing out’ (FOMO) and encourage people to register their interest to attend a sales event.

The Execution

As a result of a very specific ‘call to action’ campaign, which included digital emailers, mobile billboards, print advertising, public relations and flyer distribution, the launch of Pearl Sky resulted in being the most successful property development launch in the country’s history, achieving a 90% sell-out on launch day.
