      Market Knowledge

      Saffron Hinton will enable the gateway to the eventual redevelopment of Marshall's Airfield and the new eastern suburb of Cambridge, providing easy access links to all railway stations, guided bus routes and supporting trunk roads. 

      The Marshall’s development as a whole will enhance the eastern fringe of Cambridge, providing much needed housing and adding value in this location.

      ...a detailed understanding of the current market through competitor analysis.


      Did you know...

      Saffron was grown in 1647, and in 1700 the area surrounding Cambridge (including Cherry Hinton), had a reputation for the quality of its saffron.


       

      Technology

      AVR and Matterport are key in any marketing campaigns, particularly following the impact of Covid. Engagement in all our tours has increased considerably, and they are a perfect way to introduce Saffron Hinton.

      Video should be used in a creative way to support the launch and growth of Saffron Hinton.  This would include interviews with Bellway representatives, the local community as well as the surrounding area.

      We like to think outside the box and are sure you will agree that video filming is a great way of creating something different for your clients. 

      Drones can be used to provide updates to current and potential purchasers as the homes are progressing.

      ….by utilising and exploring the use of video and filming we can promote the development at all stages of construction.

      Digital Marketing

      We will promote the development widely across our social media platforms, engaging at every opportunity with the Cambridgeshire market to enhance the profile of the development.

      Organic and paid campaigns across multiple social media platforms.

      Experience


      We have detailed below three core developments which encompass a large strategic site now completed on the southern fringe of Cambridge. 

      These three schemes were managed alongside Countryside, our developer client, where Bidwells was involved in all aspects of the sales and marketing process, working with Countryside’s in-house teams as well as adopting our own campaigns to support and enhance the developments.

      The word 'Cherry' in Cherry Hinton was first recorded in 1576, and may have come from the former abundance of cherry trees.
