Let’s share a strategy called “TLC“ that we use here at Resident360!
TLC stands for Traffic, Leads, and Customers and it helps me quickly identify areas where I need to improve my marketing each month. It’s super easy to follow (always a plus), and I am confident you will see the value as well.
T – Traffic
Make it a habit to look at the sources every month and see what you can do to maximize that traffic. Consider having a Digital Dashboard to visually show you what’s happening.

One final tip: Start treating prospects like residents before money changes hands. Demonstrate your willingness to provide service and assistance. It just may provide the incentive they need to make the leap to a resident.
