Alongside ApplyConnect’s revolutionary tenant screening service, landlords and real estate agents have the opportunity to utilize free tools, like our custom link. ApplyConnect’s custom hyperlink is a free advertising tool that sends your applicants directly to your property’s tenant screening form. No individual invitation required. Pair it with our free online application, and you’ll have applications rolling in before you know it.
To get your rental’s link, all you need to do is log into your account and click on the “My AC Links” tab. There you’ll be able to create new property links and copy your current property hyperlink. Now that you have your ApplyConnect link, the big question is: how can you use it to bring in more applicants?
Link Your Website Up with ApplyConnect
You get a lot of applicants looking at your website, so why not place your unique link under your rental’s information? Streamline the process for your applicants by making it all online. Not only will it make everything easier for you, but for your potential tenants as well.
Take Advantage of Your Online and Social Media Sites
Posting your available rental online is vital. It’s one of the easiest ways to attract new tenants, millennials or not. By including your property link in your online listing’s information (on websites like Craigslist and Zillow), you send interested applicants directly to your ApplyConnect application and tenant screening form. Talk about easy. If you list your property on social media, go ahead and include the hyperlink there as well.
Attract Tenants to Your Application with Email
If you get any email inquiries about your property, send them your ApplyConnect property shortlink alongside the details. If you’re advertising your listing in your email signature, include it there as well. You never know if an applicant might apply right then and there.
Combine your Rental Link with these Resources
Depending on how long your link is, or how it looks on your website, you might want to shorten the link. There are plenty of free online link shortening sites, like Google’s URL shortener, that can help you get the most out of your ApplyConnect rental link. All you have to do is paste in your property URL, click a button and then copy the new, shortened URL.
If you want to wow your applicants, make your unique property hyperlink into a QR Code. QR Codes are the pixilated boxes you see marketing brochures, handouts, even cereal boxes and it allows potential applicants to use their cellphone to take them directly to your ApplyConnect property application. So no matter where your potential applicant is, by scanning your QR Code (combined with our link), your applicant will be able to easily apply on their smartphone.
There are tons of ways you can use your ApplyConnect custom link to your advantage. By placing your shortlink into your current advertising, you open up a door for immediate applications. With no fuss, you can streamline your application process to be completely online. You’re just one hyperlink away.
