QR Codes: Add a QR Code to all of your brochures, flyers, outreach material, newsletters, business cards, banners, bandit signs, etc. If the code is for your website and you use Google Analytics use the Google URL Builder to create a unique URL for the QR Code so you can track response for each campaign and each medium. It's easy and it takes less than a minute. I once discovered a banner we placed at one property on a wall along a busy street/sidewalk generated some 20 QR Code scans and visits to the website for the few weeks it was up. This told us it was a good location for future banners.

Remember that a QR Code is not just for your website URL. You can create codes for social media profiles, phone numbers, geolocations (great for maps), wireless networks, and more. In fact, I've had QR Code decals made of the emergency maintenance phone number and adhered them to leasing office glass doors/windows. Which was inexpensive and very convenient for residents. You wouldn't believe how many residents thanked us for that.

Install framed QR Codes of your social media profiles in laundry rooms and common areas inviting residents to 'Like' or 'Follow' your apartment community.

My favorite free QR Code creator: www.unitag.io/qrcode

Google URL Builder: developers.google.com/analytics/devguide...gle-play-url-builder

I used QR codes for a few years, but no one ever scanned it. I don't even know if it still works since my last two phones don't even have QR scanners. I had a phone a few years ago with a scanner app but the app didn't work well at all.

Illuminated LED Writing Board: Still using an old-school dry erase board in your leasing office or clubhouse? Upgrade to an erasable illuminated LED writing board with remote control and fluorescent markers. You can easily make your own neon signs with LED flashing lights and fluorescent colors. Just write your desired message or draw your favorite picture and light it up for the full neon affect. Electronic control box with remote control allows you to wirelessly change the multi-colored lights and flashing patterns as easily as you change channels on a TV. Vertical or horizontal display option. Sure to attract more attention than a boring dry erase board!

Pyle is a leading brand and they're on sale at 68% off on Woot for the next five days or until sold out!

6.) Advertise at your grocery store and put your signage on the carts themselves! Most stores sell the advertising space at low costs and rotate them out every three months. Every time you plunk down your child, purse or bananas and bread into the top seat of the cart you and every other customer could be staring at your potential sale.
