The HBF were keen to resurrect NHW and asked Oracle to manage the Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts to help promote the week, linking back to

Oracle created themed days starting with ‘Meet the Team Monday, ‘Why Buy New Tuesday’, 'Wednesday Wisdom', ‘Throwback Thursday’ and finishing with ‘Fun Friday’. Each day represented the different purchasing stages of a new home buyer. A primary focus was to increase relevant followers across social media platforms.

Construction workers, tradesmen, members of the sales and aftercare teams from developments and guest bloggers who can speak of their positive experience of buying a new home, were involved from all over the UK and culminated in a week of sharing images, videos, case studies, new homes news, blogs, infographics, and competitions all to highlight the advantages of buying a new build home over a period property.

After the week had finished, the content managed and posted by Oracle across the three social media platforms resulted in a 46% increase in users on the website. 847 fans were gained across all three social media platforms which led to a total of over 241.8k impressions across the week. The social media following increased by 41% on Facebook, 81% of Twitter and 169% on Instagram compared to New Homes Week 2017.
