Tips for Creating an Apartment Community with Facebook

Make sure it’s a Facebook page, and not a profile.Pages will provide you user analytics and weekly page updates sent to your email.
Create a vanity URL for your Facebook page. Using a vanity URL makes it easier for you to identify your community’s page and share it with others.
Sell without selling. Don’t start by promoting yourself and using Facebook as a means to lease apartments.
Get to know people, have conversations with them and learn their interests – then find ways to help them. Follow the 80/20 rule. 80% of the content you submit, share, comment and tag should not be about your community. Provide value to the conversation first and foremost, and you will gain trust and interest from your fans.
Share meaningful, relevant information with your fans on a consistent basis. Consider your resident demographics and what is important to them.
Cross-promote and market your Facebook page with local businesses and offer exclusive offers for Facebook fans.
Find interesting and creative ways to engage and interact with your residents. No one wants to visit a page that’s boring.
Attract fans that are relevant to your business, not cohorts, but potential clients.

Reinvent Your Living Room

The living room is where you spend most of your time. It’s truly lived in.
It is also the room friends and family frequent, so a design will set the tone for the rest of the house, and your guests.
Here are some basic tips to get you started.
Define the Room
The best way to plan a room is defining its purpose. Is it supposed to be a playroom? Is it for entertaining? Is it formal? Is it for looks alone? Or do you want it to have multiple functions? The more specific the function, the more appealing the area.
Find the Focal Points
Once the purpose is defined, you now have to find a centerpiece: that one feature that draws the eye. Most of the time, it’s the TV. But why? Entertainment centers take up a lot of space and can often look clunky. Instead, consider being more original with your living room design. Focus on the fireplace, a painting, or something more personal to you. But if it has to be the TV, try to find a way to camouflage
Arrange or Rearrange Furnishings
Create a whole new atmosphere with just a little imaginative rearranging. Remember, not everything has to be against the wall. Some contemporary designs use “floating” living room furniture in the middle of the room to help divide up the space. Also, while arranging, don’t forget to supply ample walkways for guests.
