Property management means more than collecting rent and showing a property to prospective tenants. A truly full-service property management company will help owners market their property effectively and without breaking the bank. In fact, retaining the services of a property management company is only advised if that company has demonstrated its marketing expertise. As a property owner, your bottom line may depend on the marketing know-how of the company you choose to hire.
From the perspective of a property management company, the main thrust of marketing is to enable clients to connect with prospective tenants as well as existing ones, all while augmenting the property’s brand and reach. The best property management companies know how to get the word out and showcase your properties as a unique yet highly recognizable brand. Accomplishing this requires a multi-pronged approach and should only be attempted by seasoned experts in the marketing field.
In order to market your property, a property management company will often work with you to identify your target market and create marketing materials that best convey your property’s distinct identity. These materials can include print advertising materials, brochures, as well as radio and television ads. The marketing campaign can even include something as seemingly minor as choosing the right business card for your brand. However, even the smallest things can make a major difference when it comes to attracting and retaining high-quality tenants. Decisions made by potential tenants often depend on word of mouth and reputation, which can be established or modified through a vigorous marketing campaign.
Promotional efforts must also be conducted online in this technology-savvy world. Property owners should expect that their property management company will be able to develop an eye-catching, professional-looking website to represent their property and their brand. Plus, a full social media campaign will be in order, possibly involving marketing on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram, among other platforms. These online promotional efforts can be leveraged to maximize attendance at promotional events, and they should reflect the same image and values as the accompanying print, radio, and television advertising efforts.
