Marketing

Without the right messaging, even the most impressive student community is reduced to an example of unfulfilled potential and missed opportunity. Pinnacle Campus Living’s brand development team creates a strong brand identity that resonates with the target demographic.

A multi-sensory approach for marketing is used to evoke emotion and leave a lasting impression on everyone. As such, common areas will be both resident and customer friendly to evoke the sense of sight. We will add signature scents throughout the community for appeal to the sense of smell. Leasing desks will host interesting objects to provide texture to the touch. Snacks will be available to taste and a customized playlist of music aligned with the student demographic will flow through the office and common areas to engage the sense of sound.

To make sure we are on the right track, Pinnacle Campus Living will use surveys to evaluate resident’s needs and satisfaction levels and make proactive adjustments when needed. We will make them feel connected to their community and proud of belonging to something unique.

Since the overwhelming majority of students begin their apartment searches online, a student housing community must have a strong online presence. Pinnacle Campus Living will provide a comprehensive digital marketing plan that includes everything from website development and search engine optimization to reputation management.
