We've been marketing our properties with video tours since 2005 and more and more homeowners are listing with us because of this cutting edge marketing technique.
Santa Barbara, Calif. (PRWEB) February 3, 2011
AppFolio, Inc., providers of web-based property management software for residential property managers, now includes the option to embed a YouTube video into vacancy listings that are automatically posted from AppFolio to Craigslist, the property management company website and hundreds of sites on the Internet.
Video is a powerful marketing tool and property managers are finding that adding video to vacancy listings attracts even more prospects and provides them an opportunity to stand out from the competition. Applicants can watch a video tour and even apply online using AppFolio’s online applications, saving everyone a significant amount of time during the leasing process and helping property managers close customers even faster.
AppFolio continues to focus on making it easy for property managers to use the service. Embedding the YouTube videos is as easy as copy and paste – no coding or extra work is required. Property Managers can take advantage of storing all vacancy information in one location (AppFolio) while leveraging the power of YouTube, the recognized leader in online video storage and distribution.
“The new YouTube Video Tour feature is tremendous. I’m so impressed with the way we can feature the video tour when we send our ads to Craigslist, something we've struggled with in the past,” said Todd Breen, President of Home Property Management in Florida. “We've been marketing our properties with video tours since 2005 and more and more homeowners are listing with us because of this cutting edge marketing technique. We’re thrilled it is now included with all of our AppFolio listings.“
