Anticipate resident needs
Residents have a variety of needs which change over time and with seasonality. Offering curated, money-saving benefits to residents helps improve resident satisfaction and retention.
Avoid expensive tech investment & development time
Launching a customer-facing benefits program typically requires significant engineering resources that are hard to come by & distracts from the core business efforts.
Rapidly source relevant partnerships
It takes a lot of time to research and develop new partnerships and negotiate ongoing partnership agreements.
Grow and track partnership performance
Tracking performance of member benefits and partnership engagement is important but can be difficult due to technical requirements.

Streetlane Homes was able to achieve growth of resident interest, engagement, and benefits traction.

Member interest

The Streetlane Homes team worked closely with Paylode’s Customer Success & Partnerships teams to create and implement a curated resident perks page, directly in their resident portal.

As awareness grew, Residents showed clear signals of interest as measured by page views.

Streetlane Homes increased views to their resident perks page by 70.8% in Q4 2021 and didn’t stop there, increasing views almost 166% in Q1 2022. This was all made possible with the use of Paylode’s flagship product and only took two days to get set up and running.

Member engagement

In the early days, Streetlane Homes was relying only on organic traffic to their resident perks page.

The Paylode team recommended they send relevant offers for holidays and special occasions to increase engagement with residents and bring additional value, providing helpful templates for use.

Streetlane Homes was able to easily add perks to email campaigns by utilizing the attribution links in the Paylode Marketplace.

Member benefits traction

Every new resident needs essential items when moving into an apartment.

Streetlane Homes leverages Paylode’s robust marketplace to provide discounts on key items like moving services, furniture, internet, cable & more.

Streetlane Homes was able to unlock a new ancillary revenue stream from the combination of sending ‘right-fit-offers’ to new residents, holiday email blasts, and 24/7 access to a resident perks page.

"Paylode was so easy to set up and doesn’t take much time to manage. They enabled us to unlock a whole new stream of ancillary revenue, while providing our residents with a phenomenal experience. Best of all, our residents LOVE the perks!"
