Tip#1: Start a new Website for your Property Management Company.

The first task at hand is to build a new website for your business. Almost every company on the planet has a  website and this is the perfect way to showcase your services to potential owners and renters. Your website is your online storefront and your website and the design are critical. Make sure to highlight  all the services you offer. (tenant screening, property checks, great customer service etc, etc)

Make it easy for tenants to find what they want. Online rent payments area, Available rentals, etc. Once you establish an online presence ask your tenants and owners for testimonials to post on your website to show that you have become a respected property manager in your area.

A great source we recommend to build you the total package for your property management website is www.propertymanagerwebsites.com

Tip#2: Add your company to Google Place and other Directories.

So you now have this great super awesome property manager website. You have to get found in search engines and local directories.
Add your company to Google places and appear in search results when people search in your local area. Don’t forget to also add your company to Yahoo local and Bing business. We also offer a free  company listing in our property management directory.

Tip#3: Direct mail to Homeowners in your local market.

Let owners know you are in business. You can purchase “unoccupied” owners list from several different sources and in some markets your own local MLS  offers these types of list free of charge. Postcards can be very inexpensive from websites like Gotprint.com you can purchase 5,000 postcards for about $120.00! This is a great way to market your services directly to owners.
