It’s Not All Rainbows and Butterflies

Plain Craigslist ads are boring. With a number of different companies providing colorful templates with which apartment companies can post their information, you’re behind in the game if you’re just using text and adding a few pictures. But just as I warned in a previous blog post, some of these “professional” companies might be leading you astray.

Now, I understand that there is a big push to market to Gen Y, which means finding youthful designs and figuring out what amenities will appeal to this demographic:

But wait…  Last time I checked, Gen Y didn’t include girls between the ages of 5 and 10.  And didn’t I see something somewhere about when it’s ok to use Comic Sans?

At least one company is getting Craigslist ads right…
