NEW ORLEANS, LA – 365 Connect, the New Orleans based, award-winning online technology platform provider for the multifamily industry, announced today the integration of its Marketing Syndication Platform with Geebo, a unique community created classified website delivering an enhanced online marketplace. The integration automatically distributes all of the marketing data from apartment communities using the 365 Online Leasing Center to Geebo.com via the 365 Marketing Syndication Platform.
This integration reflects and supports the shift in the multifamily market away from obsolete marketing strategies towards more economical and effective online marketing technology. 365 Connect research has repeatedly demonstrated that today’s renters are online, search oriented and gravitate to the most efficient search oriented sites. This powerful integration delivers high market penetration through distribution of 365 Connect’s client listings across the Geebo Platform.
Geebo, founded by Greg Collier, launched in May 2000 with an enthusiastic and positive response. As an upstart website originally based out of Sacramento, CA, Geebo was launched as a place for people to buy and sell used items, find housing as well as post job announcements. Beyond the online classifieds, Geebo created a sense of community for all who visited through their clean design, open forums and genuine interest in their visitors. People shared their experiences and knowledge, asking questions, getting answers and being truly connected to others in their area. Geebo succeeded in connecting individuals in a medium based upon disconnection. Since then, Geebo has expanded to hundreds of communities nationwide.
“We are excited to extend our Marketing Syndication Network to include Geebo, they have been a leader in creating localized community based classifieds online, and are the model for providing a safe online environment for their users,” stated Kerry W. Kirby, CEO of 365 Connect. Greg Collier, Founder of Geebo added, “we are proud to be aligned with a leading edge award-winning firm like 365 Connect. Since Geebo’s inception, we have strive to deliver the most relevant and reliable information our site users are seeking. 365 Connect delivers direct listings from their client database on apartments that are available for lease in the market now, helping Geebo provide an exceptional user experience.”
The Marketing Syndication Platform is a joint product of 365 Connect and MultifamilyBiz.com, which harnesses and syndicates information across the Internet through multiple data feeds from 365 Connect’s Network of Online Leasing Centers. The powerful MultifamilyBiz.com platform serves as the data hub and entrance point for the syndicated feeds, delivering detailed community information inside a single interface.
Going beyond traditional hosted websites, the 365 Connect Technology Platform gathers and sorts data into bundles and then mass syndicates the most relevant data that apartment shoppers are seeking (such as photos, floor plans and pricing) across the Internet. The Marketing Syndication Platform saves multifamily property owners time and money through the elimination of redundant marketing efforts, which also normally demand an extraordinary amount of management staff time.
In today’s ever-expanding Internet marketplace, in which 90% of all housing searches start on the Internet, it is vital that multifamily owners and operators market their communities online efficiently and inexpensively. 365 Connect strives to place each of its clients’ apartment communities in as many online destinations as possible with automatic, real-time updates in a seamless process that property managers never have to touch, see or update. By pushing the leasing information from the 365 Connect Platform across high traffic sites, such as Geebo, 365 Connect clients are ensured that their most needed property information is reaching online prospects across the breadth of the Internet.
365 Connect and MultifamilyBiz.com are proud to align their Marketing Syndication Platform with Geebo to create integrations that help fulfill their mission to drive quality traffic to all of the 365 Connect Online Leasing Centers. This powerful and timely addition to the already robust 365 Connect Technology Platform further cements 365 Connect’s role as the leader in creative, leading edge, award winning web-based technology solutions for the multifamily industry.
