Social Media Tips for Property Managers: 6 Ways To Boost Your Rent Roll with Engaging Content

Are you a property manager feeling the pressure to keep up with social media while juggling a million other tasks? Trust me, I get it. But I’ve gotta say, mastering social media can be your secret for attracting landlords, growing your rent roll, and standing out in the competitive property management industry. So let me break down some useful tips to help you nail it on social media!

1. Choose the Right Platforms

First things first, you need to be on the right platforms. Not all social media sites are created equal, especially when it comes to property management.

    • Facebook: Great for building a community and sharing detailed content. Join local groups and engage with posts to increase your visibility.
    • Instagram: Perfect for visual content. Showcase beautiful property photos, behind-the-scenes looks, and quick video tours.
    • LinkedIn: Ideal for networking with other professionals and sharing industry insights. This is the place for thought leadership and connecting with potential business partners.
    • TikTok: If you love doing quick videos, or have a younger ideal audience, this is the platform for you. 

Each platform has its own unique strengths. Pick the ones where your target audience hangs out the most.

2. Create Engaging Content

Content is king, but engagement is queen. You need to create posts that inform and  captivate your audience.

  • Visual Appeal: Real photos and videos of you are a must. People want to see you, so show yourself in your content.
  • Storytelling: Share success stories, client testimonials, and interesting anecdotes about your properties. People love stories they can relate to.
  • Educational Posts: Provide useful information about property management, market trends, and maintenance tips. This positions you as an expert and builds trust with your audience.

According to Social Media Examiner, “Content that evokes a strong emotional response is more likely to be shared widely, increasing your reach and engagement.”​​

3. Consistency, Consistency, Consistency

Posting regularly helps keep your audience engaged and your brand top of mind. But let’s face it, consistency can be tough when you’re busy managing properties. That’s where a social media calendar comes in handy. Plan your posts in advance to ensure a steady stream of content.  You can get a copy of our social media calendar inside the Property Manager Personal Brand Starter Kit here.

4. Engage with Your Audience

Social media isn’t just about broadcasting your message, it’s also about interaction. Respond to comments, answer questions, and engage with your followers. This two-way communication builds relationships and trust.

5. Utilise Tools and Techniques

Revamping your social media management can save you heaps of time. Here are some tools and techniques to make your life easier:

  • Scheduling Tools: Platforms like Planable (which we use here at ContentCollab), Buffer, and Sprout Social allow you to schedule posts in advance, so you don’t have to be online all the time.
  • Content Creation Tools: Canva is fantastic for creating eye-catching graphics, while apps like CapCut can help you edit videos on the go (we use CapCut here too).
  • Analytics: Use analytics tools to track your performance. See what works, what doesn’t, and adjust your strategy accordingly.

Sprout Social suggests that you really analyse your performance metrics consistently to understand what type of content resonates best with your audience and adjust your strategy accordingly.

6. Join a Supportive Community

Feeling overwhelmed with content creation? You’re not alone. Joining a community like The Content Club can be a game-changer. You’ll get access to ready-to-use templates, monthly social media calendars, and training sessions to keep your strategy sharp and your content flowing.

Social media doesn’t have to be a time-consuming thing. With the right platforms, engaging content, consistent posting, and handy tools, you can establish a strong social media presence and watch your rent roll grow. Remember, it’s all about connecting with your audience and showcasing what makes you unique.
