Revolutionizing Real Estate Websites: PeakMade’s Success Story

Revolutionizing Real Estate Websites: PeakMade’s Success Story

 

PeakMade Real Estate came to us needing a platform that allowed for a more streamlined approach to websites across their portfolio and understood that the user journey is different across their various markets.

So we did what we do best, implementing website templates optimized for Peak’s audiences that have significantly reduced website development time and include a custom Entrata integration that converts better than any leading property management software on the market. 

 

when we say best, we mean it.

We wanted to not only simplify website development but also provide PeakMade’s portfolio with a marketing tool that amplified lead generation. Each template design was to be innovative, with thoughtful movement of content to engage the viewer while not overwhelming them. 

 

Our adaptable designs show an immediate improvement in conversion rates in the PeakMade portfolio, with lower costs to acquire leads when comparing the performance of their pay-per-click campaigns year-over-year from pre-templated Threshold websites to post. 

Claremont Collegiate Apartments in Claremont, CA. saw:

  • A 213% increase in conversion rate
  • A 65% decrease in cost per conversion

University Gateway in Los Angeles, CA. saw:

  • A 1,607% increase in conversion rate
  • An 83% decrease in cost per conversion

Impressed? See more for yourself.

 

a custom integration? you got it.

Up until now, Entrata’s API allowed only floor plan pricing to be pulled into websites. Threshold built a custom integration for Entrata that retrieves several data points such as property floor plan details, availability, pricing, specials, and general property promotions, leveraging automation and increasing website accuracy and sustainability. 

Our custom PeakMade templated designs and integration go far beyond the current property website capabilities, allowing property managers to:

  • Set a custom pricing label option for floor plans with the ability to customize individual floor plan specials and floor plan name options
  • Introduce a rent pricing override option for quick and easy discounted pricing updates when needed
  • Create specials and offers that automatically remove themselves from the website when they expire

 

What does this mean for the property management teams?

  • Information refreshes automatically
  • No more spending precious hours updating leasing information or submitting requests through Threshold
  • User-friendly back-end access to make certain edits on their own, without having to wait the standard 24-72 hour agency request turnaround time
  • Focus on leasing and know that the property’s website is accurate and up-to-date

 

we love results.

How fast do you need a website? Because Threshold and PeakMade launched several of these custom website templates in only 26 business days. But the results don’t stop there. 

When switching their property websites from Entrata templated designs to Threshold’s customized solution, PeakMade saw some dramatic improvements.

Taking a sample of 10 property websites from 2022-2023, the PeakMade team saw the following changes: 

  • Average time on a website increased by 33 seconds across all sites
  • An engagement rate increase of 7.74%
  • A goal conversion rate increase of 77.61%

 

before you go.

The 411? Using the Entrata designs and limited plugins was costing PeakMade properties conversions. Their new Threshold website templates look better than the previous property websites and provide a much-improved user experience that’s consistently resulting in better website engagement and higher lease numbers.

How To Craft A Website Design That Turns Heads

How To Craft A Website Design That Turns Heads

With millions of websites competing for attention in today’s digital age, ensuring that your site stands out from the crowd is essential. Here are our top tips to help you achieve a memorable and engaging website design that will attract and retain visitors.

 

know who you are.

The importance of having a strong brand identity can’t be overstated. Before diving into the web design process, it’s essential to have a clear understanding of your brand’s visual identity and voice. Your website should reflect your brand’s personality and values while speaking to your target audience, whether it’s students, professionals, or families. 

Use consistent design elements such as colors, typography, and graphics throughout your site to create a cohesive visitor experience. 

 

design is psychology. use it to your advantage.

Our brains are wired to process information in specific ways, and design can leverage these cognitive tendencies. Visual hierarchy is a powerful tool that can guide users’ attention to the important parts of your website through the use of headlines, images, and eye-catching CTAs. A good design can influence what a user sees first and how they interact with your site. 

Emotions are heavy hitters when it comes to people’s decision-making processes. Evoking the right emotions through a design—whether it’s a sense of trust, excitement, or nostalgia—can help foster a stronger connection between the user and the brand.

Another psychological tool you can use to elevate your website is something called the principle of social proof. For better or for worse, we live in an age of social influence and people are more likely to take action if they see others doing the same. Incorporating testimonials, reviews, and user-generated content can help build trust and credibility with visitors, encouraging them to engage further with your website.

 

dare to be different.

While it’s essential to adhere to design principles and best practices, don’t be afraid to break the mold and experiment with unconventional elements in your website design.

For example, the internet is made up of boxes—people are used to seeing grid-like layouts. Consider shaking things up by using an asymmetrical layout to create visual interest. Experiment with big, bold typography choices, vibrant color schemes, or whimsical illustrations to infuse personality into your website. Introducing unexpected elements can surprise and delight visitors, making your website more memorable.

By daring to be different and embracing unconventional elements in your website design, you can set your site apart from the competition and create a unique online experience for visitors. Remember to stay true to your brand identity and objectives while pushing the boundaries of what’s been done before.

 

don’t forget about user experience (ux)!

When considering these things, it’s crucial to strike a balance between creativity and usability. Ensure that unconventional elements enhance rather than detract from the overall user experience. Nobody likes a site that’s hard to navigate! Conduct user testing to gather feedback and make adjustments as needed to ensure that your design choices resonate with your target audience.

 

final thoughts.

By following these tips and implementing thoughtful design strategies, you can make your website stand out from the crowd and leave a lasting impression on visitors. Remember to continuously monitor and optimize your website’s performance to ensure that it remains relevant and engaging in the ever-evolving digital landscape.
