How Technology can help property managers
There are a lot of factors that go into hosting an event as a property manager. From notifying residents, getting them excited about the event, sending out RSVPS, and other logistics that property managers can’t balance with their other priorities on a day-to-day basis. That’s where utilizing technology comes into play and helps ease a property manager’s workload. Having everything a property manager would need to generate events for residents all in one place is a helpful solution.
Impact events have on community
Allowing opportunities for residents to interact with each other builds a much stronger sense of community. A lot of property managers already understand the value of and reasons why they do events. Understanding what makes your residents happier and more likely to renew at your property can make a difference, such as looking at data correlation of event reviews and identifying residents that renew at a higher rate and leave higher satisfaction scores.
The Key to Running a Successful Event
Marketing is key component when it comes to planning an event as a property manager. Most site teams tend to focus more of their time on the logistics of the event and less time on marketing. It is important to get your residents excited about the event in multiple ways besides your standard email messaging.
