A little background...

Wheelhouse of Fair Oaks is an ideal community for millennials in Fairfax, VA looking for an affordable, yet stylish, apartment.

The homes welcome four-legged friends and boast designer touches like wide-plank flooring and quartz countertops. The community includes a gym, outdoor BBQ, dog-wash, and resort-style pool. Overall, Wheelhouse’s stellar attention-to-detail makes the community feel like a home, not just a rental.

The Problem

With 66 colleges within 50 miles, the closest being George Mason University, the Wheelhouse of Fair Oaks apartment community was having difficulty standing out amongst the fierce competition and turning “vacancy” to “no vacancy.”

The Solution

Many contracts start with an online presence audit, but because their site was relatively new and quite small, we dove right in. 

Optimize

Search Engine Optimization (SEO): We completed keyword research within the Fairfax area to see what people were looking for in terms of apartments from number of bedrooms to types of amenities. This helped us craft better content, meta data, and brainstorm ongoing blog content. Because their product is locationally bound, local SEO played a big role here.

Drivitize

Google AdWords: We inherited an AdWords campaign from another agency – let’s just say it was lacking. Keeping historical successes in mind and utilizing our keyword research, we created a new campaign targeting people within 20 miles of Fairfax.

The new campaign had a broader reach, was more organized, and better targeted. Plus, we setup conversion tracking to deliver data like the number of phone calls we generated, the number of people who clicked “Apply Now”, and more.  

Paid Facebook Advertising: Facebook is a great place to target millennials. We setup remarketing and created fresh ads to target some fresh and friendly faces. And you bet we setup conversion tracking, too!

The Results

Overall, our digital marketing strategy put Wheelhouse in front of people looking for apartments just like theirs.
