Quick, which ad sources generate the most calls to your multifamily property? What about prospects? Leases? If you don’t know, you could be wasting money on advertising that isn’t paying off. Or you could be leaving money on the table by not allocating more dollars to ad sources that are giving you great returns on investment.
Follow these three steps to learn exactly where you should be spending your advertising budget next month.
Good analysis begins with good data. Knowing whether a prospect learned about you from an ad or by word of mouth isn’t enough. You need to know exactly which online ad sources are generating calls. But in the age of fleeting attention spans, asking prospects how they heard about you is unreliable and inefficient—who remembers what they clicked on five minutes and 10 webpages ago?
That’s why Dynamic Number Insertion (DNI) is so important. It assigns a unique phone number to each online ad source—whether banner ad, Google, Yelp, Apartments.com or anywhere else you advertise—and then displays that phone number on your website to the visitor. That way you know exactly which ad source drove them to your website and what ultimately made them pick up the phone and call you.
To avoid skewed data and get a true picture of ad effectiveness, next you’ll need to filter out non-prospect calls. Divide calls into two categories: prospects and non-prospects. Non-prospects include residents, vendors, employees and any others who may call in on your advertising numbers. Then, filter out the calls from non-prospects to get a true idea of which ad sources are generating leads rather than just calls.
Knowing which ad sources are generating the most calls and prospects is great, but what you really want to know is which ones are converting to leases. But not all leads sign leases the same day, week or month. So how will you know if a lead ultimately became a lease?
With LeaseTrace®, data from your Property Management System (PMS) and LeaseHawk’s LeadScore tool is combined to trace a signed lease back to the first call coming in through a LeaseHawk tracking number. Here’s how it works:

Are prospects still calling? Survey says… most definitely yes! According to LeaseHawk user data collected in 2020, over half of the inbound communications received by properties were phone calls. But is your leasing office answering?
Clicks and form submissions only get you so far in measuring the success of your marketing campaigns. To get the full picture of how to attribute your marketing success, you need to track your offline campaigns too. Use these three methods to keep track of your offline marketing campaigns.
