Talk to Your Tenants by Txt

April 21, 2009 by Emma Sorensen 


Earlier this year we reported on a new service called TXTAPT, otherwise known as “text apartment”, which provides apartment marketing by mobile phone text message.

It’s basically a new way to advertise properties, tapping into the ever-growing mobile phone market.

Advertisers signed up to TXTAPT include a unique keyword in any advertising about the property. The apartment seeker simply sends a text message with the unique apartment ID to the number “368266? (DOTCOM). Within seconds the apartment seeker receives a text message with information about the property.

TXTAPT now has a new sister website called “Tenant Txt”.

Daniel Ellis from Tenant Txt says the mass alert and reminder system was “designed to give apartment management and apartment safety leaders a way to contact tenants by text message and email.”

The company says that landlords, agents and building managers can use Tenant Txt to: Update tenants on community events, alert the community if there is crime in the area, remind tenants of important maintenance repairs, and much more.

It’s cheaper than post, quicker than door-to-door visits, and is instant. Tenants can choose to be notified by text message or by email.

You can try a demo online, or sign up for a 15 day free trial (with 250 tenants). Packages range from $25 to $99 per month.
