Urbis with Incite
Market Positioning and Brand Strategy
In the winter of 2018, Urbis engaged Incite as it sought to develop a strengthened market position and brand strategy, including a growth plan for the business moving forward. Urbis was seeking a strategic partner to support its future objectives, build alignment across stakeholders, and craft a story that would resonate in the infill market.
Incite worked with the Urbis team to build a strategy based on stakeholder discussions that identified needs and pains, brand perception, marketing and communication opportunities, centres of influence and how to actively engage with them, and the competitive landscape. From these research findings, Incite then developed a new marketing and branding strategy, with specific activities and initiatives to guide Urbis through building a reputation as the leading infill home developer in Edmonton.
Visual Brand Development
Following the strategy engagement, Urbis worked with Incite to update its visual identity to reflect the newly defined differentiated value. The new identity increased Urbis’ profile and reputation as the leader in infill in Edmonton, clearly connecting the visual identity to the established position. The new branding supports Urbis clients, partners, staff, and community members in the guarantee that Urbis stands behind its brand promise.
On the heels of the successful Urbis project, The Estates at Waters Edge, a company under the DevGroup umbrella, also engaged Incite in spring 2020 to develop a marketing plan that included key messages and tactics to achieve their growth goals.
