365 Connect Explores the Social Acceleration Effect on Multifamily Housing in Live Webcast

NEW ORLEANS, LA - 365 Connect, a leading provider of award-winning marketing, leasing, and resident technology platforms for the multifamily housing industry, announced today that its founder and CEO, Kerry W. Kirby, will serve as keynote speaker for a live webcast. The webcast, Social Acceleration: The Fuel Igniting Market Change, is scheduled to air on March 21, 2018 at 3:00 P.M. ET on, the largest media platform in the multifamily housing industry.

Social Acceleration: The Fuel Igniting Market Change examines the influence of innovative technologies in our everyday lives and how they have helped shape the modern demands of today’s consumer. The webcast focuses on demographic changes and the importance of utilizing multi-channel marketing to reach the next generation of renters while shedding light on the most influential and efficacious social media channels to include in modern marketing strategies. Turning its attention to optimizing online profiles and building robust digital footprints to engage with target audiences, the webcast also analyzes the added benefits of visual-based content, search marketing, and branding consistency.

“The Digital Age has connected us like never before,” Kirby explained. “Everyday technology allows us to send and receive information instantaneously through digital networks. As technological progress accelerates, it also encourages an escalation of ideas as well as increased production and consumption. This sociological concept of social acceleration is shaping the 21st century as we know it, influencing the demands of the modern consumer and redefining the digital marketing landscape each year.”

Joining Kirby is property management expert, Ernest F. Oriente of PowerHour, an industry professional since 1988 and the author of SmartMatch Alliances. Oriente and Kirby have presented over 100 webcasts together, covering an array of topics from strategies on maintaining optimum performance of multifamily communities to the latest technology trends. With a combined experience of almost 50 years in the multifamily housing industry, Oriente and Kirby deliver comprehensive, educational, and leading-edge programming.

Oriente responded, “Kerry is a profound researcher and analyzer of all things digital, and I am excited to join him on a discussion of this very timely and comprehensive subject. We strive to bring a balance of diverse content to our audience so they may accommodate the unprecedented growth in the industry, fueled by the next generation of renters.”

“As the digital footprint extends beyond control, isolated websites, fragmented data, and patchwork transactional components represent an incomplete picture of how the next generation is engaging online,” Kirby concluded. “As we continue to look at innovative methods to simplify onboarding practices and serve residents, it is crucial that multifamily housing operators realign their strategies to accommodate the next generation of renters. We are excited to share our knowledge of this subject with our industry peers.”
