Below are 5 things you can do with a virtual tour from LCP360 to maximize your virtual leasing strategy.
Integrate your virtual tour with listing services
Internet listing services - or ILS systems - such as Zumper and Apartments.com, are becoming a go-to resource among modern day renters. For multifamily, listing properties on major rental marketplaces helps ease the renting process, bring more awareness, and generate more leads.
Like listing services, Panoskin aims to optimize the apartment search with a high-quality content experience. This makes this kind of integration perfect for engaging and converting future prospects.
Integrating your Panoskin virtual tour with various property systems will not only build visibility, but it will also increase lead generation as well as streamline the leasing process.
Panoskin is currently integrated with:
- Apartment List
- And many more
If you only have a Panoskin tour and are not signed up with an ILS yet, our team will work with you to make sure your tours appear on listing sites that we integrate with.
Host a guided tour
In the era of COVID-19, in-person tours aren’t as common. In fact, more Americans are looking for alternatives to in-person guided tours.
The challenge is that in-person tours are incredibly important. Without them, you lose that human element.
With Panoskin, that human element doesn’t have to be lost.
Panoskin virtual tours allow you to host guided tours with a virtual mirroring feature. The team member giving the tour invites users by email and then guides the user through the property.
Guided tours on Panoskin can host up to 25 individuals with high resolution as well as smooth navigation (unlike some virtual tour alternatives, such as FaceTime tours) and will work on any computer or mobile device.
Embedding on Facebook
An excellent way to build visibility on your property listings is to embed your Panoskin virtual tour onto Facebook.
Facebook’s Marketplace has consistently been a huge domain for rental searches since its fruition, and continues to be one of the top resources for renters.
If your Facebook page has 2,000 likes or more you can create custom tabs to embed virtual tours.
Instead of only providing images of your community on social media, add your Panoskin tours to give prospects an engaging and informative tool to help in the decision making process.
