Since 2015, the Bridge Property Management team has worked with SOCi as a marketing partner using SOCi Listings, Assist, Social, and Reviews to support over 150 properties in their localized marketing efforts. As an all-in-one local search solution, SOCi helps BPM keep their brand consistent and bring in leads.
By leveraging SOCi’s Review Assist services, BPM is able to manage all online review responses, Facebook messages, Google Q&As, and Instagram comments. “It’s so nice to have everything in one spot, and the reporting access is huge. If I didn’t have SOCi, it would be impossible to grant everyone individual account access and educate them on our content strategy. SOCi provides the right level of access and the important updates needed for our purposes. We have found it to be a great partnership,” said Danielle Johnson, Vice President, Marketing and Training, Bridge Property Management.
BPM’s goal for local managers is to maintain a 4-star Google review rating (or higher) across all BPM properties. SOCi’s reputation dashboard allows the team to pull ratings to identify which properties need assistance and send reports to all locations detailing reviews. From senior leadership and upper management, to regional and local managers, SOCi makes it easy to grant viewing access for all reviews to highlight wins and employee accomplishments, as well as areas for improvement.
Because prospects are integral to the firm’s success, the BPM team judges the performance of its marketing initiatives based on how they impact the volume and quality of inbound leads. In particular, BPM focuses on the visual presentation of the brand online and the review scores for each of BPM’s locations to augment lead generation. Thanks to SOCi’s comprehensive reporting suite, BPM’s regional managers can easily generate reports detailing impression and view counts from their local social media accounts. “How we appear online is critical to our success in the market, which is why we place such a strong emphasis on our digital images and reviews,” shared Danielle.
SOCi Listings has also proven to be a major difference-maker for the BPM team. Property names, addresses, and phone numbers are now validated across all in-platform locations, saving the team time and eliminating the need to utilize a mix of other platforms to support listings management in the process.
