Less Technology Hassle, More Results. Property Management Companies face a bewildering and growing number of internet and mobile marketing opportunities. Taking advantage of these opportunities today requires a number of skill sets that are difficult and expensive to develop and manage internally. RentEngine Marketing Solutions addresses those needs with a set of comprehensive programs, which require fewer in-house skills and less in-house work:
- Property Website Marketing - including website design and hosting, search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click search engine marketing campaigns (SEM), and Place page setup & optimization - for both desktop computers and mobile devices.
- Social Marketing - including Facebook & Twitter page set-up, search widgets, posting campaigns.
- Social Reputation Monitoring - including reviews from ApartmentRatings.com, Yelp, Google Places and other key review sites.
- Listing Distribution - marketing of properties to visitors on a wide range of web sites.
- “True Cost” Marketing Spend Analysis - a new service and product already used by over 1,000 properties to learn the true cost of each lease by marketing channel.
Deep Industry Knowledge and Experience. The RentEngine marketing service team is lead by the folks who built MyNewPlace.com into a leading ILS through cost-effective internet marketing. The team is skilled at multifamily marketing, internet marketing, and leading edge technology development. The RentEngine marketing optimization process is based on years of metrics-driven optimization and a track record of continually lowering traffic costs. Metrics-driven optimization relies on consumer behavior data - and results - as opposed to opinion and guesswork.
Exclusive Ability to Leverage Commercial ILS Platform and Traffic. RentEngine Marketing Solutions are based on statistically proven designs tested on MyNewPlace.com’s 4 million monthly visitors. Plus, RentEngine solutions leverage the same high speed infrastructure, resulting in faster websites, mobile sites, and landing pages - which improve conversion rates.
