YoChicago publishes a large and growing collection of Reviews of mid-sized and larger apartment communities. Reviews offer renters a visually-rich, objective look at a community’s apartments, amenities and location. The Reviews frequently rank high in search results and are linked from our neighborhood guides, which typically include every major apartment community in a neighborhood.
YoChicago offers individual apartment communities the opportunity to sponsor their Review page.
Sponsored posts at YoChicago reach renters directly with up-to-date information, link to your website and availability info, and enhance your position with search engines. All posts are featured at our Facebook pages, our Google+ site and in our Twitter feed.
Chicago’s best landlords is one of the most-viewed pages at YoChicago. We pre-screen our advertisers, visit their communities and recommend them to our visitors at our list of Chicago’s best landlords.
Chicago apartment deals, one of YoChicago’s most popular features, is a frequently-updated spreadsheet grid listing advertiser communities, links to their websites and availability checks, and a summary statement of their current special offers (if any).
Apartment video walk-throughs are high-res tours of an individual apartment narrated by YoChicago or community staff. They’re posted to YouTube, featured on Review pages, linked from our neighborhood guides and maps, and other editorial features. See 100s of samples at our grid of downtown apartment tours.
Walk-through videos can be purchased apart from an advertising package: $899 for 3 videos and $200 for each additional video shot on the same site visit.
Video on non-advertiser Reviews. We feature advertiser-sponsored YoChicago videos in the right column of the Review pages for non-advertiser communities.
#Instatours are 60-second (or less) high-res video walk-throughs of an apartment. Community-branded versions are made available for the community to promote on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media venues.
Amenities clips are 15-second (or less) high-res community-branded video pans of individual community amenities. They’re a great way to showcase your amenities at Instagram, Facebook and more.
Neighborhood photos are a must-have for your social media programs. YoChicago has accumulated a large archive of high-res neighborhood images over the years and is making an ever-growing number of them available to our advertisers at Dropbox. No photo credits required when you use them.
If you’re an owner / manager with an eclectic mix of communities, we can craft a custom program to suit your needs.
