Brand Strategy for Matthews of Chester


We have been working with Matthews of Chester for over 5 years, building a website for them in conjunction with a leading Chester design agency back in 2015. As with all Estate Agency Websites we build in WordPress and link to their Property Management system, originally CFP. We continued to work with Matthews to optimise their website for Google search and helped on ad-hoc development projects. We had however, long been keen to help them more with their marketing so recommended Clare Moorhouse of Moorhouse Digital to work with us on a more structured Marketing and content plan. Clare has a prestigious property background so immediately fit in to the virtual team and we began delivering a structured content and SEO plan for Matthews.

Key messaging Workshops

Towards the end of 2019 our discussions with Matthews turned to branding. Their messaging and branding had become confused over time. What did Matthews stand for? Where did they fit in the local market? What made their business so special? We felt that if we could answer these questions and distil them into messages to the market, it would move their marketing forward hugely. Clare already had a great understanding of the business but suggested running a number of Branding Workshops.

Clare organised a workshop, inviting all of the senior team at Matthews. We ran a number of exercises with the team designed to brainstorm what Matthews offer to the market. Clare’s aim here was to document all of the outcomes and distil these down into the most valuable and powerful differentiators Matthews deliver every day.
