About Investors Associated

Investors Associated is a real estate investing and development company that has been in business since 1970. They differ from their competitors because property management is handled in-house, so their investments continue to appreciate for investors over time, rather than providing a single boost when it’s flipped.

Additionally, when someone invests, they become an equal partner in all Investors Associated properties, decreasing risk.

This model is why Investors Associated has two audiences with whom they have to resonate. As many of their properties are residential, they need to market directly to individuals looking to rent a space. But other properties are commercial. Additionally, they must appeal to investors, which can be either organizations or individuals.

“I really like the business audit. It was great seeing them step back and understand our company before making recommendations.” - Jamie Stefan, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations, Investors Associated

The Problem

Investors Associated needed to reach new partners and increase their cash flow. But they didn’t have a strategy in place to attract new tenants and investors.

Furthermore, they didn’t have the manpower in-house to do the research required to effectively target them individually, or the creative team to build tailored messaging and well-designed marketing assets.

If they didn’t manage to connect, the business would have risked becoming stagnant, which doesn’t provide good returns for investors. Over time, that path leads to losing partners rather than gaining them.

“I would recommend Impact to a company that’s looking to grow. They’re there to help you grow. We’ve had a great experience working with them. They’ve gotten us to where we are today in our marketing and we couldn’t have done it without them.” - Jamie Stefan, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations, Investors Associated

The Solution

Over the course of our five-year (and counting!) relationship, Impact did an in-depth assessment of Investors Associated’s efforts and implemented an omnichannel strategy to carry out the unique opportunities we found.

Our research found that Investors Associated has a unique sales funnel that we were able to take advantage of. While their target audience is niche, by understanding their needs, knowing the most effective places to target them, and having the extensive creative team required to produce a wide range of media, we were able to help them skyrocket annual growth while saving money on marketing.
