Windsor’s refreshed luxury real estate marketing focused on hyper-targeted audiences among an already tiny demographic. The value we delivered to Windsor went beyond digital and print insights to improve their marketing strategy while providing crucial insights on ways to implement the latest best practices. We also introduced new tools like marketing automation and a real estate specific customer relationship manager (CRM) to streamline their in-house operations. To assist them with ongoing support, we received specialized training for the CRM software to serve as their go-to expert.
Windsor holds its brand standards to the highest degree, which is why we helped position them with a precise Brand Guide to direct the integrity of their internal and external visual communications.

The astonishing and consistent execution of these ads spread brand awareness and promote the available properties to their affluent clientele.
Our communication efforts for Windsor divide into two verticals, Prospect Communications for future residents, and Club communications for existing members and residents. As a result, the streamlined communication process benefits their marketing budget. Our creation of printed materials highlights their properties and club amenities. We’ve also worked with the Members’ Club to craft seasonal newsletters and annual reports to communicate the latest developments at Windsor to existing residents.
Our hyper-targeted digital advertising positioned Windsor amongst their peers and prospects while gaining an average of 75 or more new email subscribers each month for ongoing marketing communications. Our social strategy alone accounted for the 2nd highest source of website traffic, at 30% of total website traffic, funneled explicitly to property listings.

The Windsor Charity Polo Cup is the signature philanthropic event of the season in Vero Beach held biannually. It’s like a charitable Kentucky Derby at the beach without the bookies. The brand identity for the cause-driven event includes the logo design, icon, and color palette built upon the existing legacy of the Windsor brand. These design components integrate seamlessly within the Umbrella of the Windsor brand. As a result, they provide a timeless and cohesive brand identity for an event that welcomes influential philanthropists and sponsors from around the globe.
Our website design and development established the primary hub for the Windsor Charity Polo Cup. Attendees, sponsors, and advertisers alike visited the site to contribute over $280K in proceeds to the various local and national charitable causes in a single year. The website organized the content to highlight the story behind the event, while prominently featuring the causes.
Beyond their brand identity, we also created the physical collateral for the Windsor Charity Polo Cup event. For the 1,200 attendees, we created posters, invitations, tickets, schedules, signage, and other supporting printed materials. Our expertise with printed marketing materials ensures unmatched attention to detail to reinforce the luxe look and feel of Windsor.
