If you’ve followed Sprout Marketing for any length of time, you know that Lauren and I love September, Better Breakfast Month. It means so many things we cherish: coffee, eggs and toast, and yogurt parfaits. Plus a few donuts or waffles, because YUM. And we bet your apartment prospects and residents feel the same way.

Here are some breakfast-themed apartment marketing and resident retention events that will start your day off right! 

 

Apartment Community Marketing: Coffee is on Us This Morning!

Years ago somebody shared with me that the average person spends 46 minutes with their coffee or tea in the morning and if you're like me, you might be spending a little bit more time. I refill my first coffee, then switch to tea for most of the day. So how awesome would it be to be able to spend those 46 minutes in the hands of your prospects? You can by ordering coffee sleeves!

Almost all businesses have a coffee station for their employees or even for their clients, but a lot of them don't have coffee sleeves. By providing coffee sleeves you’re adding value to their offering and getting to spend 46 cozy minutes with that prospect.

We priced them at absorbentprinting.com and they're exceptionally reasonable to add your marketing message and printed logo. Tight budget? You could even go in with a couple of your sister communities and imprint your management website and then take these to surrounding businesses.

WANT TO GO EXTRA? Partner with a local coffee shop and treat their customers to coffee on you! Hand out your flyers with each person's order to show that there's a LATTE reasons to love your community. Here are a few more coffee slogans we love:

  • Home is Where the Caffeine is.
  • Everyday is a coffee day at Apartment Hame Here!
  • Perk Up and Move to Apartment Name Here.
