  • Making the Grade with Domestic and Imported Lumber

    Contains 1 Component(s)

This webinar replay will provide an overview of the ALSC, its activities and the lumber grading process, including how lumber from both the U.S. and Canada is graded, as well as how lumber imported from outside North America can be graded for use under U.S. building codes and standards.

  • Digital Marketing: Many Channels, One Message

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    Each digital marketing channel -- websites, email and social media -- works like a small stream that, when combined with others, can create a rushing river of momentum. This webinar replay demonstrates how when digital channels work together, it creates a 1+1=3 effect. Bring all these streams together, and take control of your digital marketing efforts. Your brand will benefit from them working together.

    For the last decade, marketing channels, specifically digital ones like websites, email, Facebook, Instagram and others, have proliferated at such a rate that it's hard for housing marketers to keep up. As a response, companies started divvying up responsibilities: keep the social media in-house and outsource the website and email, or keep the website in-house and outsource the search engine optimization (SEO).

    The result can be a set of marketing specialists working separately, resulting in digital channels working independently rather than working together. In today's modern marketing environment, that's not good enough. This webinar replay demonstrates that when digital channels work together, it creates a 1+1=3 effect. Your brand will benefit from them working together.

    Participants in this webinar replay will:

    • Explain how to develop a holistic digital marketing strategy and implement it in a cohesive way
    • Describe what it means to develop a brand voice and initial awareness strategies to create long-tail, ongoing lease-up approaches
    • Examine real-world examples and case studies from the multifamily industry
