Westline Village Success Story
West Line Village is a brand-new community in Lakewood, featuring 175 modern townhomes in a transit-oriented neighborhood, just five stops from downtown Denver. A modern haven that has something to offer urban dwellers and outdoor enthusiasts alike, West Line Village is a place to relax and recharge, entertain, and explore all that Colorado has to offer.
Partnered with Highland Development Company, West Line Village was a promising community that needed to attract the right type of buyers.
Our Plan for Google Advertising
We knew with West Line’s limited advertising budget available, Google Display Ads would be a great way to build awareness using the strong imagery they already had of their community. Leveraging existing demographical data, as well as diving into additional research, we were able to craft three campaigns targeting very specific demographics:
- Colorado Awareness
- Outside of Colorado Awareness
- Retargeting (BoFu)
Example of Google Display Ads
Our Plan for Content Marketing
- Position West Line Village as an expert in the space
- Attract qualified buyers through highly researched and keyword optimized blog content
- Retarget organic blog traffic via Google Display Ads to increase conversions
Content Marketing Success
Through our blogging efforts, we were able to win a nationally featured snippet for the keyword townhouse vs single family. This one blog post alone drives over 1,000 users to the website every month.
We knew that, with a new property like West Line Village, building awareness had to be our first priority. Google Display Ads offered us a unique opportunity to drive new users to the website for approximately $0.50 while also showcasing beautiful images of the property. We knew from experience that finding qualified buyers would be difficult, so we spent a significant amount of time researching and optimizing our targeting.

Once we got the word out and began driving new users to the website, it was time to retarget this traffic with our bottom of funnel Google Ads. Staying top of mind allowed us to drive approximately 10 form submissions per month, keeping the West Line Village sales pipeline full. They were also able to sell all 175 townhomes over a year ahead of schedule.
