365 Connect Launches Featured Search Listings With Rent Jungle
- Feb 24, 2011
New Orleans—365 Connect recently announced the integration of its Marketing Syndication Platform with Rent Jungle’s Featured Listings for online apartment rental marketing. The integration allows apartment community managers using the 365 Online Leasing Center the ability to elevate their search listing on Rent Jungle to the top with one click.
This powerful delivers high market penetration through distribution of 365 Connect client’s listings over Rent Jungle’s syndication network to such sites as Oodle, AOL Spaces, Zillow, Facebook Marketplace and over 100 others.
365 Connect first launched its live data feed through its Marketing Syndication Platform to Rent Jungle’s housing search engine in August 2010. With that infrastructure in place, 365 Connect and Rent Jungle then incorporated a switch inside the “Manager’s Admin Panel” in the 365 Online Leasing Center, enabling property managers to enhance their current listing to a Rent Jungle “Featured Listing.” This allows community managers to simultaneously control marketing budgets while providing a marketing platform that requires no manual posting or updating of content.
The Marketing Syndication Platform is a joint product of 365 Connect and MultifamilyBiz.com, which harnesses and syndicates information across the Internet through multiple data feeds from the 365 Connect Network of Online Leasing Centers. The MultifamilyBiz.com platform serves as the data hub and entrance point for the syndicated feeds.
The 365 Connect Technology Platform gathers and sorts data into bundles and mass syndicates the most relevant data that apartment shoppers are seeking across the Internet. The Marketing Syndication Platform saves multifamily property owners time and money through the elimination of redundant marketing efforts that normally demand an extraordinary amount of management staff time. .
Rent Jungle was founded in 2009 by Rick Ferris and Jon Pastor. Their vision was to fill a void in the online real estate market by offering a simple directory and a one-stop-shop destination for renters. After working to develop the apartment industry’s first true search engine, RentJungle.com was relaunched in October 2010. The site works much like other search engines in that it scours the internet to amass apartment listings from a variety of listing sites. Users can search, sort and bookmark individual listings as well as view them in an innovative user-friendly map.
