Erica Campbell, Director of Marketing for For Rent Media Solutions presented this in Phoenix, AZ on 4/28/11 at the Lincoln Property Company Annual Marketing and Training Conference.

The social web is constantly posting, uploading, sharing and ranting-about your brand. By these actions, consumers post and update their needs, desires and complaints across forums, microblogs like Twitter and social networking sites such as Facebook, Foursquare and LinkedIn, for all to view.

Consumers are finally in control, and they have become the programmers, shaping their own experiences by interacting with our brands when they want, where they want, and how they want. Successful marketers need be at every touch point to connect with them. Maintaining an on-going positive relationship with your consumers, partners and prospects is critical to any brands long term success. Today, companies must be a part of the consumer dialogue.

This session discussed sideways marketing tactics that revolve around removing friction, noise in a crowded space and uncertainty for consumers.

    • 72. Partnership Marketing
    • 73. Fair Housing
      Best Practices
    • 74. The legal stuff: Social media marketing is advertising, so the rules and laws related to advertising apply…
      Use the logo!
    • 75. Human Models
      Human models should portray persons in an equal social setting and indicate to the general public that the housing is open to all without regard to race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin…
      Your community’s residents may be diverse but make sure your advertising is as well.
    • 76. Model/Photo Releases
      You can use good Model Release language on a page that contains multiple signature lines.
      So at the pool party, title your Model Release page with, for example, “Hawaiian Pool Party – July 13, 2011,” have your good language, and ask residents to sign. (This also applies to employees)
    • 77. Playing by the Rules- Contests, Sweepstakes & Lotteries
      Contests and sweepstakes are legal but a lottery is not legal (only States have the power to run a lottery).
      Let’s look at the differences between a contest, a sweepstakes and a lottery. There are 3 elements to consider:
    • 78. Consideration + Prize = Contest
      You have to do something to win a prize, such as take the best photo/video or come up with the best slogan or best design; this is the “consideration” that is required of you.
      In theory, though, there is no “chance” since the “best” entry will win (in other words, it is not random).
    • 79. Chance + Prize = Sweepstakes
      You don’t have to really do anything - give consideration - to win, but winning is based on chance, i.e. a random drawing.
      We have to be careful not to require that people visit your community or perform in some other way in order to qualify for the drawing, because then…
    • 80. you have all 3 elements and this is BAD!
      Because now there is a LOTTERY and this is illegal!
      Chance (random drawing) + consideration (you are requiring of me) + prize
