The Motherhood creates powerful social media campaigns through their extensive network of highly influential social media moms. Cooper Munroe and Emily McKhann, began blogging together in 2004 and created The Motherhood in 2006. Since then, they have collaborated with hundreds of national brands to create award-winning social media and marketing campaigns.
Fireman Creative worked with The Motherhood to create a website that delivers beauty and functionality as a part of a clearly defined corporate identity and available services that reflects their approachable, upbeat personality. We are also working together to create new tools and find better ways to engage audiences and build participation.
Fireman Creative developed TabletTours™ to allow Heartland Homes sales staff to gather buyer information. The Tours are a fun and engaging way for potential buyers to explore Heartland Homes models and learn about featured products.
Using touch enabled hot-spots, the home tours provide information about specific cabinet styles, appliances, flooring, and other options. Potential home-buyers can save their preferences and this information is available to the Heartland Homes sales department.
