This category includes the tactics that you should be doing no matter what. This includes signage, building graphics, banners, etc. These are the tools that build brand awareness on the around your property.
Your digital advertising should also begin with paid media advertising. We recommend starting with search engine marketing ads – so Google or Bing ads. With paid ads, the effects are immediate and ROI is easily measured. Then you will want to add social media ads using the channels that your ideal renter frequents. Adding in your ILS will round out your paid media strategy – creating visibility with a consistent brand message.
Once your paid media campaigns are up and running, add organic content to complement your paid strategy.
Preferred Employer Programs
Preferred employer programs are great ways to connect with many prospective residents at once – thus creating a lot of brand visibility.
For states that allow resident referral, it is a great source for lead generation. Not only are you building a connection with current residents by offering an incentive, but you’re also getting positive brand messaging out into the community.
Community Outreach Programs
Leverage your local community to get your name out there. Get involved at local events, at the Chamber of Commerce, or with local businesses to directly interact with your local community. Prospective leads can ask questions, learn about your property, and get all the information they need to attract them into visiting the property.
At the end of the day, it’s all about visibility. The best lead generation strategies are centered around the idea of maximizing your brand visibility both offline and online.
