  • 1 Million Cups with David Watson, RentVision

Format: 8:00 Coffee & Contacts 8:20 1MC Presenter David Watson More about David Watson & RentVision: From David's LinkedIn: I am the Founder and CEO of RentVision, located in Lincoln, Nebraska—with employees in Omaha, Nashville and Phoenix, as well. We offer digital marketing strategies for apartment communities. Our purpose at RentVision is to consider others as more important than ourselves by providing remarkable experiences for both our clients and their residents. Living this purpose every single day has allowed us to disrupt the world of apartment marketing as you know it. Rather than locking clients into fixed contracts with limited advertising mobility, we offer dynamic advertising with complete transparency and flexibility. Furthermore, we ditched the common approach of a listing site that would only build up our brand—we took a different path. RentVision paved the way of building up our clients’ brands by creating their websites that showcase community-specific content, including our innovative walkthrough video tour. Beyond that, we develop PPC ads unique to each strategy, lead to lease tracking that displays true data, and a team of trusted advisors who are prepared to help guide you along the way. Beyond our current solutions, I am continuously working on developing new ways to solve the global apartment marketing problem—apartment marketing is static, yet occupancy constantly changes. RentVision is currently working on a solution in beta we’re calling Predictive Advertising, and we’re very excited to introduce it in the near future. If you want to learn more, I'd love to discuss RentVision's digital marketing strategy to see if it might be a good fit for your organization and delve into what we currently have in production. Please feel free to shoot me a message or visit us at rentvision.com.
