I had a meeting with the head of marketing for the local convention and visitors association. I let her pick the place for lunch and I am glad that I did because it really drove home the point that I was planning on making about using managed public WiFi as a marketing tool

About 10 years ago, the idea of property wide WiFi at an apartment community to increase tenant retention and build occupancy was a sound fiscal decision. However the way people use the internet today has changed and broadband technology has advanced tremendously. That's why property wide WiFi is a dead end, but strategic WiFi will add real value to your property.

High speed WiFi where you live sounds pretty nice, doesn't it? I was reading an article in TechCrunch about how Multi-Family Real Estate is one of the fastest growing sectors in the country and how technology in this sector is trying to keep up with their demand. Today over one third of all new housing is made up of these multi-family units which should be a huge motivation for property managers to update and employ new technologies and amenities. The smart property management groups are doing exactly that.

I was reading an interesting article recently that got me thinking about HOW people actually use public hotspots. Many people are familiar with how to use and connect to a public WiFi network and it is a resources that most find very useful. While it's easy to assume that the connection is safe, how often do we really consider where that signal is coming from and who is really providing it and why?

Many apartment communities currently offer WiFi to their residents while others are looking at how they can profit from adding WiFi as an amenity. There is of course the property wide wireless model where wireless connections are beamed into the individual apartment units for the residents to enjoy. The other option is a bit more cost efficient and it can make the community center into a real social center for the apartment community
