Is Your Apartment Marketing Boring? Try Theming...

One quick way to elevate your marketing is through theming... And the fastest, easiest themes to come up with are seasons and holidays. For example, we're in the month of October, which means the start of Fall, pumpkins and Halloween. 

An easy way to adapt this in your marketing is to change out any website images with fall like photos. If you're running ads on Craigslist, Facebook or Google Display Network - you can tie in the October month by adding an orange border around your ad photos. This will make them stand out. Here's an example:

Additionally, think about making your prospecting emails more fun with Halloween references. Create a haunted apartment at the community for residents. Create a haunted walking tour for prospects that come onsite for a tour.

When you start theming your marketing becomes more fun, fresh, and relevant.

In many cases you'll be piggybacking on the millions of TV and digital ad dollars being spent by big box stores promoting their own themed/seasonal goods - that's a good thing as you're entering the thoughts/conversation already happening in your prospects mind.

Other themes you can use:

  • Winter holidays such as Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.
  • New Year
  • Valentine's Day
  • Start of Summer
  • 4th of July
  • Labor Day

This would entail renters providing the city information regarding their legal status, which would be checked against a federal d...
As most of you will find out, this blog will not follow other publications with "neat ideas for a summer party." I always find those types of articles as just a band-aid to the problem of resident retention. Let me clarify: Even though I'm not a fan of the typical summer party, if it is part of a larger resident retention program it can sometimes work. However, if the only thing you provide is a yearly summer party, save your time and your money! So what is this blog about? Well, ...
If you consistently read Grace Hill, you may already be up to date on this particular discussion, but for a moment I would like to talk about the foreclosure problem in the U.S. and how it affects our industry, in particular. Now, I must note that I am not well versed in the specifics of foreclosure proceedings, so if you notice some problems with this logic, please let me know. There are two facets to this argument in relation to accepting these people back into our apartments. The first relate...
