Community TheaterTM, created by ForRent.com, is a professionally produced streaming video that highlights the features of apartment communities. This is important to consumers because it showcases the apartment communities you look at so you can make an informed decision about where you want to live. Community Theater was launched in September of 2006; now, less than two years later, there are more than 1,000 streaming videos available on ForRent.com for apartment seekers to use as resources!
Why should you care? Because when you’re searching for your new apartment to rent it’s important to go to a website that provides you with the best possible representation of where you’ll be living. Statistics also show that consumers are watching more and more online videos every month. According to comScore, nearly 135 million U.S. Internet users viewed 11 billion online videos during the month of April 2008.
“Interactive advertising is evolving rapidly and online video has emerged as a major factor in the culture of communication,” says Terry Slattery, vice president and general manager of For Rent Media Solutions. “Our videos have received more than 3.9 million views, and in June 2008 alone our videos averaged over 19,900 views per day.” That’s impressive! In just under two years the ForRent.com Community Theater product has reached this amazing milestone.
Besides airing on ForRent.com and the property’s management company Web site, these videos can also been seen on a variety of websites that you visit daily, such as major search engines like GoogleTM and Yahoo!®, social networking sites like MySpace®, video sharing sites including YouTubeTM and many more.
