Druker Company: The Colonnade Residences

The Druker Company approached Forthea to help increase occupancy for one of their core properties, The Colonnade Residences. They were seeking a digital marketing partner that specialized in organic search.

Our team performed a technical audit that outlined the site improvements needed to increase organic performance. In addition to this, we identified top-priority keywords to focus our strategy on, as well as implemented our SEO best practices.

Multifamily Leasing up During a Pandemic

Ojala Holdings is a multifamily development firm with a portfolio of apartment communities across Texas and Louisiana. The 293-unit luxury apartment complex opened its doors in 2020 during a global pandemic. With the multifamily industry experiencing one of the most turbulent times in recent history, Ojala needed a digital marketing strategy that would allow it to lease up and compete in the mass exodus of residents moving away from urban areas in response to Covid. Through tailored digital marketing strategies, the results we achieved were outstanding! The property was able to “lease up” to over 96% in ten months, which is highly unique to fill a new property that quickly. Our PPC campaigns drove 1,023 conversions with an average non-brand conversion rate of 18.96% and an average cost-per-conversion of $18.62. The property was receiving an average of 148 applications each month from PPC efforts.

Hanover Company Packs a Punch with PPC + SEO Powerplay

We manage the lease-up property portfolio for one of the nation's top 15 multi-family developers. Previously, Hanover had a single vendor working on everything from web design and CRM to PPC and SEO. The strategy was unfocused and the results showed it. They needed a marketing partner with dedicated expertise that could onboard new properties quickly and generate long-lasting results. By creating a multifamily service model with leveraged economies of scale and shared resources, we are able to ramp up properties efficiently while building custom PPC and SEO strategies and reports for each property. With a focus on results, we go a step further and provide reporting on digital marketing-driven leases for annual budgeting.
