The core focus of the panel was discussion of Google’s permeation of the multi-family industry and how to harness Google’s power to increase conversions.
During the panel, Ms. Sampson shared the following regarding the value of using Google: “Our Google My Business searches are up something like 1,300 percent over last year. That’s crazy! And our map views … once I saw that data, I couldn’t help but crack up. It was up 5,555 percent! In 2015, I didn’t even know what Google My Business Was. And now? We’re seeing exponential increases in traffic with this company. The increase in exposure thanks to Google My Business has been astronomical.”
