Facebook and Google+


  • Add visual content, as it’s easier to digest in a newsfeed than text only. For example, incorporate photographs and videos into posts to make followers more likely to pay attention.

  • Highlight features and amenities. Include images and information about the unique offerings of your property. Do you have a great business center or something that makes your community stand out? Show it off!

  • Provide lifestyle content. Posts including home decor, hobbies, and crafts/DIY projects are well received by renters.

  • Get the word out about community events. Plan an event, promote it, and invite your residents and prospects.

  • Create Facebook contests to encourage “likes” and engagement.
