Interviewer: Hey, good morning, everyone! We’re here with the fabulous property manager, Ms. Jones. So, Ms. Jones, how did you fill your apartments with such a unique referral program?
Ms. Jones: Oh, we were facing a vacancy issue, and we knew we needed something big. That’s when I reached out to our marketing agency. They’re a real wiz in ChatAI content generation, both images and text. They helped us launch a referral program that made a huge difference in our occupancy rates.
Interviewer: Wow, that’s amazing! What did they suggest?
Ms. Jones: They helped us develop a referral program with several key components. First, we offered a $500 rent credit for every new tenant referred and signed a lease. This created a strong incentive for our current tenants to refer their friends and family. We also encouraged our tenants to leave positive testimonials about the property online, which helped to generate even more interest.
Interviewer: Can you provide more detail on the program’s “recipe” and how long it lasted:
Ms. Jones: Sure, I’d be happy to expand on the components of the referral program that Ms. Jones mentioned. Here are some more details on each of the elements:
1. Incentives: To encourage tenants to refer to their friends and family, the property manager offered a $500 rent credit for every new tenant referred and signed a lease. This created a strong incentive for current tenants to spread the word about the property.
2. Advertising: The referral program was advertised online and in the local paper to ensure that as many people as possible knew about it. This helped attract referrals from current tenants and people in the local community looking for a new place to live.
3. Viral Video: One tenant went above and beyond by making a referral video that went viral on social media. The video featured the tenant dressed up in a chicken suit and running around town handing out flyers about the property. This helped to generate a lot of positive attention and buzz around the referral program.
4. Celebration Event: To celebrate the referral program’s success, the property manager threw a big party for the apartment community called “Filled Up.” This helped to create a sense of community and excitement around the property, which in turn helped to attract even more new tenants.
Interviewer: That sounds like a great idea. What else did you do?
Ms. Jones: And of course, there was the viral chicken video.
Interviewer: Wait, what? A chicken video?
Ms. Jones: (Laughs) Yeah! One of our tenants went all out and made a referral video that went viral on social media. It was hilarious – he dressed in a chicken suit and ran around town handing out flyers about our property. That video generated a lot of positive attention and buzz around the referral program.
Interviewer: That’s so cool! How long did the referral program last, and what was the result?
Ms. Jones: The referral program lasted for about three months, and by the end of it, we had filled up all of our vacancies and even had a waiting list! We threw a big party for the apartment community called “Filled Up,” which created a sense of community and excitement around the property, attracting even more new tenants.
Interviewer: Congratulations, Ms. Jones! What’s next for your property?
Ms. Jones: We’re planning to work with the marketing agency again to develop new and creative ways to continue building our brand and attracting new tenants. But for now, we’re just enjoying filling up and having a waiting list! By offering incentives, advertising the program, encouraging positive testimonials from our tenants, and creating viral content like that chicken video, the referral program generated a lot of positive attention and buzz around the property, ultimately leading to many new tenants signing leases and a waiting list for apartments. And even after the campaign, our tenants continued to be enthusiastic about the property and the community spirit we had created. It goes to show that a little creativity and community spirit can go a long way in attracting new tenants to a property.
