Is your website working for you? Your website is no longer just a first impression. It may be your only chance to stand out from the competition. Prospects use websites and their online tours to narrow down potential properties.

“There has been a fundamental shift from the website as a marketing channel to the website as part of the tour,” said Esther Bonardi, vice president of corporate & multifamily marketing at RENTCafé and Yardi. “Today, leasing activity starts earlier and it starts on the website. I don’t think this is a passing fad just related to the pandemic,” Bonardi added. “I think these behaviors will stick, especially as we see new Gen Z renters coming into the renter marketplace. Their shopping behaviors were shaped right now at this moment in time. But even for the rest of us, I think the pandemic has gone on long enough that it has reshaped customer behavior.”

Create email subject lines that won’t be ignored Every email that you send is battling against dozens of competitors in your prospects’ inbox. The time and creativity that you put into your email won’t fulfill their potential if the email goes unread and deleted.

To improve your open and click through rates, there are five main things to consider. These three are a great place to start:

  • Prompt people’s curiosity: Make them want to click to see what’s inside the email. Is it an offer? A new resident service or amenity?
  • Make sure the email is formatted well: Create subject lines that are 60 characters or fewer with the important words near the front of the subject line.
  • Avoid clickbait-y phrases: Be compelling and transparent. Don’t say they’ve won something if they haven’t or create a false sense of urgency.
