Greystar's SoCam 290 Housing Branding Campaign
Greystar is a global leader in rental housing. Their SoCam 290 property (located in New Brunswick, New Jersey) is a collection of luxury student apartments offering a wealth of amenities all within walking distance of the Rutgers University campus, grocery stores, Greek row, shopping, and dining.
For this campaign, SoCam 290 wanted to bring awareness to their extensive renovations, drive traffic to their website, and increase leasing applications. For this they needed a marketing strategy more effective than on-premise signs.
To maximize exposure among Rutgers University students, SoCam 290 utilized one of the largest campus transit systems in the United States to execute a 5-month branding and awareness campaign at peak leasing season. By coupling transit advertising with in-app mobile proximity targeting, we maximized their exposure to the target audience.
This university advertising campaign delivered over two million mobile impressions, more than 14,000 clicks, and over eight million impressions via transit advertising. Leasing applications rose above the previous year’s benchmark and continue at higher levels even after campaign conclusion.
