While many condos and HOAs are making the transition to digital screen technology, some communities have yet to accept the available technology. That is understandable: a lot of the time, leaders get so used to doing things a certain way, and they don’t want to adjust their direction.
Paper and bulletin boards seem familiar, and maybe you cannot see why your process should change. However, your board knows how little enthusiasm residents have for your old-school communication methods. They are impractical, inconvenient, and fail to grab the attention of your community.
If this is where you are (stuck between not wanting to change and being aware of how much change is needed), you came to the right place. Many other communities were standing exactly where you are today. They chose to move with change, and you can move forward too. Condos and HOAs are transitioning to digital notice boards, and here is why.
Important Notices Received
Condos and HOAs want to ensure that residents know and understand their community. However, when you post notices and announcements, and nobody reads them, it can get frustrating.
Imagine you tacked an announcement to the bulletin board that there is an upcoming renovation in the common area, and the facility will be closed. Then picture how it would feel if residents started complaining, saying that they need the common area, and they were not alerted that it will be closing the following week.
Often, that does happen when communities continue to relay messages in a way that is unengaging and old-fashioned. With a bright, sleek, and digital notice board, residents cannot miss it. The message would be received loud and clear with a visual and tactile tool, and you would rest easy.
Community classifieds are a great way for residents to connect and make use of inner-community services. Whether a resident is looking to sell a car, a kitchen appliance, or a physically injured person is looking for someone to help them clean their unit once a week, they need other residents to see their classifieds.
Using paper and a bulletin board to paste advertisements is antiquated, and it will not get any ad the attention it needs and deserves. Your community needs a responsive, engaging, and interactive classifieds.
Connecting with residents is a big part of what you do, and using a digital tool will take your engagement strategy to the next level. Resident polls are your opportunity to involve your community in the decision-making process.
If you are redecorating your common area, take that as an opportunity to get a community-wide vote on what the colour theme should be or which couch should be selected. Those seemingly minor decisions can drive residents’ interest, keeping your community as close-knit as possible.
Today, people are ordering online more than ever. However, telling residents that their package has arrived should be streamlined in large and small buildings. With digital notice board technology, you can inform residents that their package has come, eliminating a cluttered receiving area.
Digital notice boards are changing the way residents receive announcements, improving the entire communication process. They are beautiful, engaging, and compelling, and with the ability to customize what content is relevant, your board does not have to worry about spam content getting shared.
No Paper Waste
Community bulletin boards are a hot spot for local ads and junk mail. However, if you could filter out local advertisers to ones relevant to your community, and significantly reduce paper junk mail, you would, right?
Digital notice boards allow you to customize what sales and advertising content you share with your community’s residents. You can choose how long the ad stays up and control what content residents see.
The best part is that when the ad has run its course, you delete it and move onto the next (rather than going around your common areas and collecting every single flyer sheet you scattered around).
