The Apartment Internet Marketing (AIM) Conference starts in only TWO WEEKS: April 29 – May 1, in Denver. If you’re on the fence about attending, we want to make your decision easier, by giving you three reasons to not attend AIM 2009:
#1. Your customers don’t use the Internet and it’s not important to your company.
The AIM Conference lives up to its name by providing attendees with the best available education on online marketing and operations. We will show you how to cut costs and drive revenue with cutting-edge techniques and new technologies.
#2. Your marketing budget is way too big, but you’ve found the solution: ineffective advertising. It’s a great way to get rid of extra cash.
Unfortunately for you, this year’s AIM Conference is tightly focused on showing attendees how to make the most out of their marketing spend. Our expert speakers will show you ways to track and analyze your marketing spend, use social media to find new residents online.
#3. You like boring speakers talking about things you already know.
Too bad for you. At AIM, we only feature dynamic speakers who will teach you the skills you need to fill units and drive revenue in the current down market. Sessions feature Internet leaders from other industries paired with successful case studies from multifamily owners and managers.
Here are a few of this year’s speakers:
