Organizational Workshop

Life is too complicated to not be orderly.  -Martha Stewart

Isn’t that the truth?! Help your residents get 2021 started on the right foot and host a virtual organization event for them.

  • Reach out to organizational experts but DON’T just DM them. Send a professional email asking if they would be interested and available to help host an event for your community. Outline what benefits your community can offer. For example, exposure to __ (number) of residents and an opportunity to be the go-to expert and first choice to educate new residents. Many smaller organizational accounts and businesses may be trying to build their business and an event like this could be mutually beneficial! 
  • Decide on the time and duration of the event. Get your flyers customized and place them in public areas to invite your residents.
  • Prep for the event! Consider the answers to these questions:
  • What topics will be covered? Discuss specific questions your expert can answer. Outline them on a shared document. Write them down so you can reference them during the event and stay on track.
  • Who will host? Will you co-host on a Facebook or Instagram live? Do a run-through of the event to work out any issues that may come up.
  • Will you take questions from the viewers? How many? Have another team member to read through comments and pass questions to you while you and your expert host so you can stay focused!
  • How will you promote their business as well? Have their information handy to share or invite them to share how viewers can connect with them.
Post-event: Encourage residents to share their progress! Create a shared hashtag so they can tag you and the event expert. Share every single mention to keep the excitement up! Post your own progress and before and afters as well.

Can’t do a full-scale event? 

Host a virtual week of mini-organization efforts. We love simple topics that your residents can complete in one day or in a few minutes even! Outline the mental and physical benefits of having an organized life and encourage your residents to just start.

  • Clean out your inbox.
  • Organize your phone apps.
  • Clean out your social media - mute and unfollow accounts that aren’t benefitting you anymore!
  • Choose ONE room or ONE junk drawer in your home and start there. But do it all the way - you’ll feel accomplished!

This event is fun, gives your residents a sense of accomplishment, and helps reduce the clutter at your community, one unit at a time!
