MotiveEight…changing the way Property Management uses Social Media


“Hey Property Management Companies – get MotiveEighted!”

So at this point, there’s no one that needs to be convinced that their company should be  using social media.  The question is, how?  How do you actually get results that are worth the effort?  Any company can throw up a facebook page, but what does that do for the average company?  Especially a property management company?  It’s merely using influence your brand already posses to reach an audience in a different place.  Worthwhile? Yes.  Where the real power is? No.

The power in social media has always been with the people.  It’s the transfer of personal influence from one person to the next…or to the hundreds…or thousands.  It’s why 90% of users trust user related content compared to the 14% who trust advertisements.  And that’s where M8 comes in…

The MotiveEight platform first delivers a private social network, where your team can follow company leaders, share documents, schedule events, review company training and lots of other cool stuff.  But what it also does, is puts a powerful social marketing tool in the hands of your Leasing Agents and other brand ambassadors, to take your companies finite product into the online social sphere, leveraging their own personal social influence to expand your brand, follow up and market to prospects, and close more deals.  Ba-Baam!

With M8, Leasing Agents are given an online marketing page that can be customized with property specific themes and content.  They can pin and share property videos, floor plans and community information through email, blogs and over 300 social networks, routing prospects back to their marketing page where they can capture the lead and close the deal.

So Property Management Companies – Lets Get MotiveEighted! And harness the real influence of social media.

Social media in the work place: How companies benefit?

To a company or organization – water cooler conversations and coffee runs are often the most anticipated breaks in the day. To the employees taking them, it’s simply a way to wind-down or catch-up, at some point of time, in an increasingly stressful day. But imagine if there was an ‘official’ place to meet with the rest of your team, somewhere where you’d be encouraged to spend time talking to other employees – seeking advice, offering helpful tips, passing on information or even planning out an office activity with everyone’s support.

Team Techies from PR list some advantages of having an internal social-media network within one’s company, and then they point out a few things to keep in mind, whilst setting up one.

The advantages of a corporate intranet:

• Staying on track – ensure employees, teams and projects are aligned with the corporate vision and are in sync with the official goals.

• Why waste time with a hierarchy? – provides a direct path from the CEO to the lowest employee and vice versa.  This leads to improved communications, transparency, trust and empowerment of employees.

• Encourage employee networking – provide employees with a means to find other employees with common interests both within and even outside of the company – for example colleagues with an interest in music can get together and form a company band. Having a strongly connected workforce leads to increased employee satisfaction and retention.

• A think-tank – by proving the tools to generate ideas on a company’s intranet, and rewards like real money prizes, gifts or even recognition; employees are often more willing to contribute – and its some of these contributions that can really make a difference.

• News and Information – easily share company and employee news and press releases.

• Resources – quick and efficient access to libraries, tutorials, marketing material, product documentation, help, strategies, goals, budget, etc.

• Project-based Workforce – it’ll provide a means for employees to organize outside of their physical location, skill level, department, etc. To search for and find key employees, removing the chain of command from the process, allowing virtual teams to organize and execute tasks quickly.
