We had a submission on our website for more information from a management company today. What makes this request any different from others?
They recently had a property with a gas leak and had to evacuate everyone and quickly. The situation on hand was pretty hectic as you can imagine and they found themselves wishing they could blast out a quick text message.
Let’s face it…most people don’t check their email and most don’t answer a number they don’t know or check their voicemail. Don’t wait till you need it and don’t have it. Shoot us an email at sales@IRIO.com today to learn more.

What is important here is CONNECTION and the medium in which millennials wish to be communicated in. It is not about what the owner or management company thinks is the best medium – its about your resident.

Using text messaging as a tool to remind residents who may be late on rent is an effective method. Recently, we had a client send out a text to all their residents on the 3rd of the month who were late on rent letting them know a late fee would be accessed after the 5th. How effective was this you ask? 100% of their delinquent residents came in and paid that same day. What proved even more useful was the fact they put the direct link to their resident portal in the message so residents could go straight to the payment page. Texting is a powerful tool and we can help you maximize the effectiveness of your messages. We can do this because we have seen what works and what doesn’t work due to our 7 years of providing texting services to the multifamily and student housing industries.

Do you face that daily question of “Where are my leads coming from?” With multiple lead sources such as Facebook, ILS, Craigslist, Print, Radio, Drive By and more, there is an easy way to decipher which of your ad sources are worth more in terms of lead generation than others.
A Text-4-Info program consist texting a keyword to a short code. For example, Text “APTDEMO” to 47464 (MSG & DATA RATES APPLY). To tell which lead sources are most effective for you, you can advertise a different keyword on each source, yet each keyword produces the same information about the property. When you view your leads you can associate the different keywords with the different sources and see where more traffic is coming from.
…AND WHERE THEY CAME FROM!!!!!!
To learn more about determining which lead sources are more effective, email us at sales@IRIO.com.

How often do you drive by somewhere and want more information but either don’t have time or just don’t want to talk to someone right now? Ever seen a sign and wonder what it is really about? Has something ever peaked your curiosity and you wanted to know more?
Chances are, consumers are having these same thoughts your business. What type of call to action can you implement to allow the consumer a simple way to learn more? It is simple – TEXT MESSAGES! Yes that form of communication that dominates your phone usage. Simply advertise a keyword and short code and consumers will respond if interested.
For a demo, text “INFO” to 47464 (MSG&DATA RATES APPLY). Once the consumer text in, you are notified and you can log into IRIO and work the lead. Oh and you can follow up with them via text; after all that is how they contacted you.
A current multifamily client of ours generated 178 leads in the month of June. Yes you read that right – 178 leads. What are you waiting for? The decision is in your hands. The phone is in theirs.
