What is a subscription?

You get access to the member’s library of apartment marketing templates so you can advertise your multifamily housing community as often as possible for one flat monthly fee. Subscriptions are UNLIMITED meaning there are no additional charges for the creation of hundreds of apartment marketing templates available in the library. And you get multiple use of HTML, URL, JPG, and PDF files you download instantly.

 

Why do I need campaigns?

Campaigns are composed of many formats that support the same apartment marketing theme – leasing posters, digital email flyers, Craigslist housing images, resident door hangers and direct mail postcards. You download files of any format, at any time, for any apartment leasing or resident retention project. Professional advertising themes offer eye-catching photos and smart headlines to grab a renter’s attention in your daily multifamily marketing tasks.

 

How many formats are in the library?

Hundreds of different formats are online at any given time and the dynamic nature of our software allows for new leasing, retention and outreach campaigns to appear instantly. We add new campaigns often to keep your theme selections fresh and relative. Apartment monthly newsletters and calendar formats are included in your subscription at no additional charge.

 

Let’s talk about printing.

Hello Resident is not a print shop. We provide ready-to-print layouts of professional apartment marketing campaigns and let you find your best price for this commodity. However we do give you help with a FedEx Office/Kinkos 30% discount on color and black/white copies when using your Hello Resident discount number. In addition, you get 10% off all other printing and finishing services when using the discount account number. Once you subscribe, your discount number will be emailed to you.

 

Where’s my apartment community logo?

Your apartment community or property management company logo automatically populates on every document you create for instant branding. Once you upload your apartment community logo to your account the software makes sure every document showcases your branding. Got a new logo? No problem. Click EDIT on any existing documents and when you GENERATE, the software will automatically update marketing campaigns with the new logo.

 

Do you display the Equal Opportunity Housing logo?

Yes, the EOH logo is automatically populated by the software on each rental housing document so you never have to worry about it.

 

Can I upload custom apartment community photos?

Of course you can! Your subscription comes with unlimited Amazon cloud storage for community photos as well as your apartment floor plans. Create your own personal digital gallery and always know where your photos are stored — in the cloud where you can reach them any time for anywhere. Simply browse your computer and upload your electronic apartment images, download and edit with a self-serve method.

Can I change the fonts?

Professional graphic designers create beautiful, targeted leasing and retention themes to call attention to your apartment flyers. The new, improved inline EDITOR lets you personalize your message fonts with style, color and alignment choices. The software looks out for maximum readability to ensure the words stay in the right proportion to the design so you always have a professional, ad-agency style apartment marketing campaign.

 

Which Web Browser should I use for maximum speed?

Think fast! Our favorite browser is CHROME (Click Here to Download) which is FREE and available for almost any computer. Added bonus: It has a built in spell checker. It won’t catch all of your spelling mistakes and it doesn’t catch grammatical or punctuation errors but it will put a dent into your typos.

If you use Internet Explorer (IE), make sure you update now as the browser will soon lose support by Microsoft.

 

Se Habla Espanol?

Hello Resident speaks and writes fluent Spanish and we are available to help with English to Spanish Translation of your apartment marketing flyers, brochures, postcards and digital email messages.

Can I Get a Custom Campaign Design?

Of course you can with BRAND DESIGNS. Our graphic designers create a theme of your choice, using your apartment community’s branded colors and photos, then add interactive text fields for you to customize new collateral from our website. Your new custom apartment campaign will be loaded online in a private category for you within five (5) business days. The best thing is your apartment marketing collateral is no longer static and you can interact with the text and photos to update, change or personalize your leasing message – without incurring additional design fees.

 

Where do great holes come from?

The door hanger format has a 2.5″ white margin at the top to allow for a circle cutout. The Hello Resident team searched high and low until we found a handy dandy tool from Fiskars that punches a perfect 2” circle at the top of hangers. Imagine the attention your apartment message will get when it’s hanging on a resident’s doorknob.
