Ohana Hills
is a luxurious real estate villa properties located on the top of a hill overlooking the Damour Seaside in Lebanon. It is a hub providing serenity, luxury and sustainable living. The project is composed of 141 villas varying in areas. It is a tropical village that stands out, offering a unique lifestyle to its residents. Despite Ohana’s dreamy offerings, only a few were aware of its presence in the market. Their marketing activities came from a purely traditional background, which did not meet their target market nor helped them reach their lead generation goals. Ohana came to us with a project that needed immediacy, accuracy and top notch digital knowledge. Hovi was more than happy to take on this venture and make Ohana Hills reach global heights of success.

Ohana’s Challenges

Before implementing Hovi’s solutions, Ohana laid out all the pre-requisites and challenges that we needed to accomplish and overcome to eliminate unexpected events and work towards tailoring our solutions to the project’s requirements. They faced many challenges such as:


  • Spending a lot of money on marketing activities and having a low ROI
  • No digital presence
  • No presence on google search
  • Low number of leads generated
  • Unqualified generated leads

Our Objectives

  • Grow Website Visitors by Increasing organic traffic by at least 10% month to month for the first 6 months

Website Traffic

How we did it: Our Products


First, Hovi’s team built Ohana a well-structured conversion-focused website by optimizing their tech infrastructure, and user interface ensuring a seamless UX. We worked on the website’s SEO, performance and content and created lead magnets such as the ROI calculators and engaging assessments such as the find your dream villa quiz which turned their website into a lead generation machine! That made ohana’s website loved by google, and as a result, they rank first for relevant keywords in the region.

We also listed Ohana Hills on many related online listings real estate platforms such as Property Finder, OLX, and many more. As a final crucial step in Hovi’s inbound solution, we set up tracking accounts such as Fullstory, analytics, tag manager, Databox to keep track of users behaviors and constantly optimize based on results.
