This event comes to us from Becky Currie on our Multifamily Insiders Fan Page:
We did a "Taste of _________(insert city/town)" and partnered with local restaurants to provide FREE samples of their food. The residents loved it because they got to sample all of the great food right there at their clubhouse/pool area. They took great pride in the fact that "Their" apartment community did this event and many would bring a guest which really made a powerful impact on these potential residents! The restaurants loved it because it was relatively inexpensive marketing to a demographic that was likely to visit their establishment! Even showing photos and telling/inviting prospects about/to the event had a huge impact! It was an annual event that everyone looked forward to. We did it in the spring and hosted it poolside, it offered a great chance for new residents, who moved in during the winter, to meet people prior to the summer social scene!
