Featured in Multi-Housing News (MHN), Cassie Khaing, Senior Brand Manager, speaks towards the slow season in multifamily marketing.

It can be tempting for multifamily marketers and individual apartment communities to view the slow season as the off-season, but that can have potentially damaging repercussions. Industry experts weigh in on how to stay active during those months to kick-start leasing.

“I would never recommend turning off marketing completely,” said Katie Nelson, director of marketing for CAPREIT. “Many times, the slow season is when you ramp up your marketing efforts to bring you into the prime leasing season with a bang. If you shut off marketing, you shut off your voice to your audience.”
