Leading apartment resource honored in Pinterest|Communications category

Norfolk, Va. – (June 22, 2015) – On June 4, ForRent.com®, top apartment search destination, was announced the winner of the 2015 PRNews Social Media Icon Award in the Pinterest|Communications category in recognition of its Decor By Me Pinterest contest. ForRent.com competed in a highly competitive field that included honorable mention winners Anthropologie and 97th Floor, among others.

The Decor By Me contest encouraged users to collect and pin a variety of products, colors and designs to create the room of their dreams. Entrants responded to the question, “If you could have the space of your dreams, what would it be? How would it look? How would it feel?” Participants were entered in a drawing to win $1,000 at the end of the May 5-23, 2014 contest. The contest was quite successful, receiving a total of 734 repins. Pinterest impressions reached more than 150,000, with a 65% increase in unique visitors to ForRent.com’s consumer blog, Apartment Living.

Not long after the contest launch, Pinterest changed its rules regarding “pinning,” creating unforeseen obstacles for the campaign. However, Decor By Me proved very successful, which PRNews attributed to “the adaptiveness of the team.” ForRent.com selected ten additional winners after the grand prize drawing, with those winners receiving the actual items they had pinned to their boards. This resulted in a positive user experience, organic mentions of ForRent.com via social media, and an overall beneficial experience for involved participants.

“At For Rent Media Solutions™ (FRMS), our social teams are committed to making the most of social media platforms to communicate with apartment shoppers and provide tools for our customers to thrive in the industry,” said Terry Slattery, president of For Rent Media Solutions. “Being celebrated among such amazing companies is an honor and proof of hard work and dedication. We are proud to have been included in PRNews’ Social Media Icon Awards two years in a row — last year with FRMS director of social media, Erica Campbell Byrum winning a Social Media MVP Award and this year with Decor by Me.”

ForRent.com congratulates all of the finalists and honorable mentions for the 2015 Social Media Icon Awards.

Leading apartment search resource adds premiere source of expert apartment reviews

Norfolk, Va. (June 19, 2015) – ForRent.com®, top apartment search destination, has announced its partnership with apartment review service, RentLingo, a great source of expert apartment reviews.

Based in San Francisco, RentLingo, an internet listing site, offers reviews from residents and experts. RentLingo hires local experts, typically people who have spent time in the property management industry and therefore know the business, to visit, inspect and rate local apartment communities. User reviews are also available on the site. RentLingo has partnered with ForRent.com because of the high volume of traffic and quality user experience the apartment search destination provides. To date, RentLingo has reviewed approximately 3,500 properties.

“RentLingo is thrilled to have partnered with ForRent.com as they mutually align with our company’s goal of connecting consumers with the apartments best suited for them,” said Dan Laufer, co-founder and chief executive officer at RentLingo. “In 2011, we set out on a mission to improve the apartment rental search. By collaborating with ForRent.com, we will be able to further that agenda by providing more reviews for apartment hunters and making their housing decisions less stressful.”

Social media is a growing phenomenon and is not going to lose steam anytime soon. Consumers are constantly turning to online reviews and social platforms for suggestions on everything from vacations, pets and apartments to recipes, beauty products and gifts. Satisfacts Research shows that 74.4% of residents trust referrals from friends and co-workers while 67.7% trust online reviews. Additionally, communities with In-Ad reviews on ForRent.com command 20% more leads than those without.

To align with the indisputable fact that consumers are turning to online reviews for suggestions and advice, ForRent.com’s social product, FRSocial, integrates reputation management to help customers increase sales and retention. This part of the program provides automated reputation management alerts from major review sites, directories and social channels. Customers save time monitoring ratings and reviews. Additionally, FRSocial provides four content libraries, the ability to post to multiple social networks, analytics, and also allows customers to instantly engage with residents.

“For Rent Media Solutions™ is eager to partner with RentLingo to add to our more than 56,000 live rental reviews on ForRent.com,” said Terry Slattery, president of For Rent Media Solutions. “With 75% of apartment shoppers turning to online reviews, it’s important that we create strategic partnerships to provide consumers with the information they need to determine their best living situation.”
