- All of our properties (save a small handful, based on recommendations from our regional managers) will be getting Facebook Pages by the end of Q1. I've been blasting ahead with this initiative (our pilot program quickly grew from three to six properties this fall), and am so looking forward to our next wave of properties going live. Overall, our on-site teams are doing a fabulous job managing their pages, and we've had very few hiccups.
- We will soon be setting up a corporate Facebook Page for our company to share new developments, employee achievements, and more. I don't know whether we'll also set up a corporate Twitter account, but in the spirit of optimism, I reserved a name for us...just in case. ;)
- We will (hopefully) be setting up a Pinterest page. I've been playing with Pinterest on a personal level for about a month now, and am loving how creative some other management companies and industry vendors are getting with this user-friendly platform. (If you're new to Pinterest, check out Weidner, Bailey Properties, and the Apartment Guide's boards to start.)
- We will also be continuing to work on our online reputation management plan, which includes claiming all of our online listings, responding to reviews in a timely fashion, and starting to ask our residents to write reviews.
What does your 2012 look like? Here's to a happy, healthy, and productive year for us all.
