Apartments.com tapped Streetsense as the social media agency of record to help make the brand synonymous with renting, to generate on-channel engagements, and to drive users to the Apartments.com website.
Streetsense managed an integrated social media strategy across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest and launched the brand on TikTok, sharing renter-friendly educational tips and tricks, tapping into daily trending content and seasonal trends, and serving as a resource for lifestyle content that keeps renters engaged, even when they’re not looking for an apartment.
The Apartments.com Twitter was converted to the personal channel for spokesperson Brad Bellflower, Inventor of the Apartminternet (as portrayed by Jeff Goldblum), and allowed the brand to replicate the quirky sense of humor from their broadcast commercials to communicate directly with renters on the conversational platform. Pinterest was restructured as an SEO tool to drive users back to the Renterverse blog on the Apartments.com site. Complementing our content strategy was an informed social media advertising strategy, inclusive of promoted posts, follower campaigns, and website traffic campaigns.
Our team leveraged influencers with focuses on décor and DIY, plants, pets and other lifestyle themes to reach new audiences and grow our social media following and activated them both on an ongoing basis and during campaigns.
Throughout our partnership with Apartments.com, we’ve ideated and executed a series of signature campaigns inclusive of philanthropic partnerships and giveaways which boosted brand reputation and consumer sentiment.

The campaign culminated in a donation to The Petfinder Foundation and a social media giveaway, and ultimately generated a 98% increase in TikTok followers, 70% increase in engagement rate across all channels, and 5,852 sweepstakes entries.

Capitalizing on consumer interest for organization and tidiness, we partnered with celebrity home organization expert RíOrganize to giveaway one in-home consultation and organization service. The sweepstakes launched before back-to-school, coinciding with renters’ natural habits of preparing for the start of a new season and featured DIY hacks and tips from other influencers and blogs, a dedicated landing page, and dark posts to generate overall awareness. We gained 3,261 new followers in one week and garnered 5,954 sweepstakes entries.

Recognizing that inflation and tighter budgets were top-of-mind for many consumers during the holiday season, the Sleigh It Forward campaign gave renters the chance to win $2,000 to help with holiday expenses and then ‘sleigh’ it forward by selecting a family member or friend to also win $2,000. The response to our seasonal and empathetic message was extremely positive and hopeful, with social media users celebrating Apartments.com generosity.
