Struggling to decide what you should Tweet? Does your mind draw a complete blank when you have to write up an Instagram caption? Don’t worry, it’s not just you.
We’re at a point where apartment marketers realize the importance of being active on social media, but some just can’t seem to crack the code of how to craft Tweets, Facebook updates and Instagram captions that deliver results.
What if there was a resource you could access that had tons of social media posting templates for apartment marketers? A list of proven headlines and social media copy that you could use for inspiration. That’s exactly what we’ve put together.
We’ve created the ultimate cheat sheet for apartment marketers that want to write social media posts that connect. Below you’ll find templates organized by social media channel and your desired outcome. Use them as inspiration or simply insert your own info in each one to personalize them for your community!
The Tweet you use to push traffic to your website won’t be the same as the one you use to get people to encourage people to follow you. That’s why we’ve categorized the templates by goal. Choose the category that best describes what you want to achieve on social media.
