The goal is to successfully launch this brand without impacting the vibe that TreeHouse has already established. The overall strategy is to decide which communication efforts should be shared between Boulder and Austin and which should be unique and stand-alone. At Nueces Creative, we would like to focus on the stand-alone efforts.THE NUTS AND BOLTS

In comparison to the groundbreaking city of Austin, Texas, the increasingly inventive Colorado city of Boulder embodies a very similar environment. Both cities are home to large universities and embrace the urban lifestyle, but still maintain an intimate small town feel. The cities of Austin and Boulder are known as fast paced, forward thinking, and environmentally conscious, aspects which are all carried out by an exceedingly proactive and prideful community. The goal of the Nueces Creative agency is to further enhance the passion that Boulder citizens notably dedicate to community improvement, by promoting and enabling one sustainable lifestyle choice at a time. Our agency wants to ensure that TreeHouse will be known as the local, environmentally responsible hardware store fully committed to improving the city of Boulder. Creating this connotation will be accomplished through creating long lasting and personal relationships with the Boulder community, then introducing those relationships into the world of sustainable home improvement.While researching the Boulder demographic, the growing prominence of green consumers within the Boulder market quickly became evident. These consumers consistently maintain healthy lifestyle habits and express great concern about the wellbeing of their treasured Boulder community. The majority of individuals in the specified market are remarkably career driven, in addition to being socially and/or politically liberal. After intensive research of these green consumers, our agency decided to further divide the green market into two segments -- the established career person, and the recent college graduate. With regard to the former, the older market contains reputable figures in the community who are likely to serve on committee boards, and possess continuously active voices in the Boulder community. In comparison, the second, more youthful market is predominantly composed of recent college graduates looking to become established members of the Boulder community. As TreeHouse simultaneously pursues the same goal of establishing community presence, the created parallel between desires will naturally encourage the younger green consumers to resonate with our community-based messages. Conclusively, the objective is to establish TreeHouse as a continuously strong local presence, which will lead to reaching both target markets when they are already thinking about their beloved community. At Nueces Creative, we are intently focused on developing the Boulder TreeHouse market by creating brand awareness, driving storefront traffic and inspiring customer engagement, with specific concentration on sustaining a positive brand perception of TreeHouse. Our agency plans to achieve these goals through a pulsed media flight. First, in effort to create brand awareness, a combination of event sponsorship, guerilla marketing and radio underwriting, will be used to inform the Boulder community of their new, eco-friendly hardware store. These efforts will be centrally focused on the companys readiness and enthusiasm to improve the cherished Boulder community. Next, our agency will drive the specified target markets to the new store location by strategically placing an out-of-home advertisement, in addition to discount coupons offered in through direct mail. Both efforts will include a map of the store location to inform and incentivize consumers to visit the store. Finally, inspiring customer engagement will be accomplished through the sponsorship of local art and athletics events. These efforts will reinforce the focus of TreeHouse being extraordinarily eager to engage with every aspect of the Boulder community. Guerilla marketing tactics and a home makeover-inspired social media contest will be the dominant media used to promote the positive brand perception of TreeHouse. Nueces Creative understands and appreciates the loyalty that the Boulder community constantly exemplifies with respect to their undying commitment to community improvement and sustainability. TreeHouse will become a helpful neighbor, giving the community the tools, knowledge and guidance needed to continue their innovative efforts for a greener world. TreeHouse knows that the commitment is where the community is.




PRODUCTStriving to improve the sustainability and efficiency of building materials, Treehouse offers an extensive array of environmentally responsible products to assist customers when building, remodeling, and maintaining their home. Each of Treehouses products passes through their signature product filter based upon four pillars: health, sustainability, performance, and corporate responsibility. Not only does Treehouse focuses on selling these environmentally friendly products, but service installations and workshops are also offered to supplement customer purchases.

PLACEThe external faade of TreeHouse located in South Austin shouts efficiency as you approach the towering solar panels overhead. Filling the small, easily navigable store with friendly and approachable employees, the intimate atmosphere of Treehouse is very laid-back and stress-free.

PRICEBased on the various products offered at TreeHouse, ranging from light bulbs to water heaters, prices are tremendously skewed. TreeHouse pricing is typically higher than generic home improvement materials found at common hardware stores, due to the greater quality and green aspects of the products.

PRICETreeHouse participates in a plethora of social media resources such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and an interactive website that concentrates specifically on home design. The workshops and blog tutorials offered by TreeHouse invite prospective customers to join the niche market of green builders. 6
