However, property-level communication can be a challenge for multifamily marketers and agents due to the lack of centralized control over messaging and branding, agents’ limited marketing expertise, and the tedious process of audience filtering.

Common Challenges Faced by Multifamily Agents in Prospect Communication
Let’s examine some of the most common challenges faced by multifamily agents in prospect communication and how they can impact their ability to secure leases and create a positive impression of the property:
- Inconsistent Branding and Messaging: Due to the decentralized nature of communication, multifamily agents struggle to maintain brand consistency and messaging across properties, leading to inconsistent messaging and branding.
- Limited Marketing Expertise: Multifamily agents are primarily responsible for leasing properties, but they may not have the marketing expertise to represent the brand effectively. This can lead to brand inconsistencies and messaging that does not align with the overall marketing strategy.
- Approval Process Bottleneck: Lack of a streamlined approval process can lead to a time-consuming back-and-forth between agents and management, resulting in delays in sending out time-sensitive communication to prospects.

Efficiently Manage Blasts with Calendar
Journey AI Blasts’ Calendar is a powerful tool that enables agents and marketers to manage their prospect communication activities in a more streamlined manner.
The calendar provides a comprehensive snapshot of all the blasts that are in different stages, such as draft, scheduled, sent for approval, and those that have already been sent. The legend at the bottom left-hand corner of the calendar provides a clear understanding of the blast’s status.
One useful aspect of the Calendar is that it allows users to filter the blasts according to their status. For instance, agents and marketers can easily locate drafts, scheduled blasts, and those that have been sent or sent for approval.
The flexibility to customize views and check approval requests ensures that users stay on top of their prospect communication activities.
Furthermore, the notifications icon at the top right corner grants easy access to critical updates and approval requests, keeping agents and marketers informed.
The Calendar is an exceptional tool for efficiently managing prospect communication activities.
Streamlined Review and Approval Process
Journey AI Blasts’ approval process provides a reliable way for admins and selected agents to review Blasts before they are sent to prospects, residents, and brokers. The process is quite simple to set up and can be easily managed by the admins.
Once the admin is on the Approval Process subtab, they can toggle the Yes/No switch to determine if the approval process is necessary.
Journey AI Blasts allows admins to customize the approval process by designating specific approvers and identifying agents who don’t require approval. This streamlines the process and ensures that only the necessary stakeholders are involved, saving time and reducing confusion. Ultimately, this feature helps in providing a clear and efficient workflow.
Once the approval process is set up in Journey AI Blasts, the approver can directly approve or disapprove the Blast. This process is straightforward and can be done in a few clicks.
Once an agent sends a Blast for approval, the manager/approver will see a banner on the top of the screen with an option to “Review Blast.” Additionally, there will be a notification on the approvals icon waiting to be reviewed. The manager/approver can then easily review the blast by clicking on either of the options.
Journey AI Blasts’ approval process allows approvers to easily approve or disapprove Blasts by clicking the corresponding buttons.
In addition to this, approvers can provide valuable feedback to the agent in case of disapproval, helping them to improve their future Blasts. Alternatively, approvers can also choose to edit the Blast themselves and save the changes before approving it.
Once the Blast is approved, it will automatically appear in the Blast calendar. This streamlined process benefits agent and marketers by providing them with a faster and more efficient way to ensure that their Blasts are approved and sent on time.
Valuable Insights with Reports
The Reports section in Journey AI Blasts provides a valuable resource to multifamily property management teams. The reports are easily accessible and allow the team to analyze data and gain insights into their marketing campaigns.
The “By Blast” Report is particularly helpful as it presents data in a structured and presentable format, with three panels that provide a detailed breakdown of each blast’s analytics.
The report includes important metrics such as:
- Unique send: the number of individual contacts who received the Blast.
- Open rate: the percentage of recipients who opened the Blast.
- Click-through rate: the percentage of recipients who clicked on at least one link in the Blast.
- Unsubscribe rate: the percentage of recipients who clicked on the unsubscribe link in the Blast.
- Bounce rate: the percentage of emails that were undeliverable and returned to the sender.
With this information, the team can quickly identify which blasts are most effective and make data-driven decisions to improve their marketing campaigns.
In conclusion, Hyly.AI’s Prospect Communication Experience offers a powerful solution to streamline communication and increase engagement with prospects.
