D = Development
Did you know the Project Marketing techniques currently used by PRD were first introduced on the Gold Coast during the mid 1970’s?
PRD originally evolved from a consultancy company called ‘Project, Research and Development’. This firm was created to provide developers with information relating to market trends and used research to offer advice based on objective information.
The shift in the mid-seventies from a consultancy advice role to one of active involvement in Project Marketing occurred out of necessity as the market demanded a realty company that could offer a higher degree of service and accept a greater level of responsibility for project outcomes. Hence, PRD was born.
PRD changed the landscape by identifying that the most effective way to successfully sell a major development was through a total, seven day a week commitment from a salesperson whose efforts were contained to selling that product, and that product alone.
For the first time, buildings were manned by a project sales manager and furnished display units were created – a successful strategy that is still employed today.
We can create unique and proven marketing strategies to ensure pre-sales targets and financial milestones are met for our clients.
