Every luxury apartment community should have some type of digital marketing strategy, especially if management wants to find new residents and keep up a general awareness of the property. Implementing the right marketing plan can persuade people and families to move into your apartment complex, as well as drive traffic to your website and generate more leads. If you want to increase the number of residents living in your apartment community and achieve your marketing goals, you’ll need to continuously look for opportunities to improve your digital marketing game. Sometimes, however, it can be tricky to know which specific strategies you should focus on. We’ve generated a list of 4 ideas for marketing apartment communities to help you achieve more leads and create more interest.
Set up email marketing
Emails provide a way for apartment communities to market to potential and current residents. The first thing you should do is to collect a list of people you can contact. You may want to create the lists based on who you want to target. For example, you could create a list of people in the community or a list of real estate agents. Once you have the lists, to fully utilize email marketing, make sure you tailor your email messages to your target audience. Make sure that the message is entertaining, educational, and interesting. Emails can share information about events that take place for residents, about amenities available, share any deals or discounts available for potential residents, or encourage tours of facilities for potential residents. You can test emails’ subject line length, as well as the times you send emails at to see what works best. Include call-to-actions in your emails so that people can find out more about your community if needed. By employing an email marketing strategy, you’ll be able to boost clicks to your website and in turn increase leads.
Revamp online listings
It’s vital that an apartment community’s online listings are consistently updated. Listings generate leads, increase online presence, and allow your community to be more easily discovered. Online listings can strengthen brand awareness and increase local visibility. Apartment communities can be listed on sites such as Yelp, Google My Business, and Facebook. Update your online listings by first reviewing how the listings appear. If there are old photos being used, make sure to upload newer ones. Double-check and make sure that all of the information on the listings is correct. Last of all, make sure that you are responding to reviews since many listings offer a place for people to leave them.
Having a modern, updated website is something every luxury apartment needs. Modern websites can share beautiful photos and videos of apartments, showing people what the community is really like. Updated photos and videos can show off amenities such as pools and fitness centers. Make sure your website also includes several call-to-actions on each page. Call-to-actions encourage site visitors to do something, such as contact management about taking a tour. Another vital thing to update on a website is SEO. SEO is the practice of improving a website so that it becomes search engine friendly, which in turn can bring more traffic to your site. Lastly, make sure that your website is accessible to all, including those with disabilities.
Initiate digital ads
Creating a successful digital ad strategy will allow your apartment community to stand out from the competition. Digital ad strategies can make your apartment community money by bringing in leads and increasing brand awareness. People go on search engines and social media platforms every day, which is where they could potentially see an ad for your community. Successful digital ad strategies can help you target the right audience, generate a consistent lead pipeline, more fully engage people, and gain brand credibility. There are many types of ads to choose from, including search ads, banner ads, video ads, and more. Testing out different types of ads can help you find the right ad strategy for your apartment community.
