Seasonal marketing ideas and slogans can be a fun way to bring in new residents and get current ones excited to be in your community.

One of the best parts of Spring is the return of nature’s favorite color – green! So, when it comes to apartment marketing ideas for Spring, it’s time to think green. Consider green inspired apartment marketing slogans or activities. For example, consider promoting a recycling event for the community. Distribute green bins around the community with messaging around the importance of “thinking green”.

Gather the group together for breakfast and a rallying meeting to get everyone excited, then go volunteer and make your community a better place. Don’t forget to take / post lots of pictures and videos!
Another Spring themed idea that would be an excellent apartment marketing idea for Spring would be a Spring cleaning event. This is particularly relevant as you can totally capitalize on the popularity of Marie Kondo and other organizational specialists. Partner with a local charity to pick up donations from donation boxes around the complex. Using your best apartment digital marketing practices, market this cleaning throughout not just your community and residents, but beyond the community as well. Broadening the reach of this sort of event will help you reach prospective residents as well.
For this event, provide “spring cleaning” checklists and supplies to current residents – and include information about deals if they renew their lease early. Spring is, after all, a prime time for renewals. If residents feel so inclined, extend the Spring cleaning to the community itself. Spring is a great time to make sure all of the common areas are in tip-top shape, playground equipment and dog parks are cleaned, and everything looks its best for the Summer ahead.
