Our partnership with ReferBoost enhances our customers' rental listings by syndicating high-quality reviews to prospective renters searching on ForRent.com.
Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
Over 75% of surveyed consumers say they base their rental decisions on ratings and reviews (according to Next Generation of Renters). Armed with this knowledge, ForRent.com®, an award-winning internet listing service, is partnering with ReferBoost to feature reviews on its site as a benefit to renters and communities.
For Rent Media Solutions™, which entered the ratings and reviews segment over nine months ago, includes a wide range of reviews from multiple sources on ForRent.com. The inclusion of ReferBoost reviews, along with photos, property details and location information, lets renters imagine themselves actually living in a community.
“For Rent Media Solutions makes every effort to stay ahead of the curve by providing helpful tools to benefit clients as well as renters,” said Terry Slattery, president of For Rent Media Solutions. “Our partnership with ReferBoost enhances our customers’ rental listings by syndicating high-quality reviews to prospective renters searching on ForRent.com.”
As a leading reputation platform in the multifamily industry, ReferBoost automates the process of improving online ratings and reviews, syndicating listings to Facebook and incorporating tenant-powered social media referral programs.
“ReferBoost reviews are generated by residents who are excited to tell friends about the property, so over 90% of residents who review give the property a 4 or 5 star rating,” said Matthew Hartman, founder of ReferBoost. “This provides a much needed balance to existing online reviews, which tend to skew negative. We’re extremely excited to be the first company with the ability to gather these positive reviews and automatically syndicate them to the major apartment review sites.”
ReferBoost reviews will begin appearing on ForRent.com in early 2014.
