  • Rockstar Capital’s marketing numbers skyrocket with award-winning team
  • Creative branding generates multi-million impressions and thousands of leads for the property management company
  • Rockstar Capital’s innovation allows them to get ahead of competitors in a notoriously slow industry

About Rockstar Capital 

Rockstar capital

Rockstar Capital is an industry-leading property management company that owns and operates affordable, well-maintained apartment homes throughout Texas, in cities such as Houston, Humble, Baytown, Rosenberg, Alvin, Angleton, Pasadena, Ingleside, and Kingsville. Their current operations include 21 communities with a total of 3,762 units, and they expect to grow to 10,000 units by 2023.

Beginning humbly in 2011 by holding signs outside of their apartment communities, Rockstar Capital’s marketing team has grown to six members who have brought in a lot of their previously outsourced work. With more manpower, they have been able to focus more work on the big picture and run more targeted and strategized campaigns. Rockstar Capital has successfully established its Apartment Rockstar branding for investors, as well as the Rockstar Capital brand for their residents.

Influencer-Style Branding

With more than 1,400 YouTube subscribers, 64,000 Instagram followers, and 1,400 Facebook page likes as of August 2020, the Apartment Rockstar branding has helped the company team up with celebrities like Tarek El Moussa, from HGTV’s Flip or Flop. They have also established owner Robert Martinez as a recognizable face in the Houston Multifamily industry.

Apartment Rockstar strives to take both investors and residents on a journey behind the scenes of Multifamily, something their competitors rarely do. Martinez was recognized as the owner of a National Apartment Association (NAA) Property of the Year in 2019 and has earned NAA’s Independent Owner of the Year award for the second time in 2019, becoming the only NAA member ever to do so. Along with awards, Robert has been featured in articles by Forbes, Money, CNBC, Make It, Entrepreneur, and Business Insider.

Cost-wise, 2019 was a great year for Rockstar Capital’s marketing numbers. Rockstar’s team was able to bring in 34 million impressions, 4.7 million company website views, 51,000 potential resident leads, and 2,800 net leases portfolio-wide. While generating record-breaking numbers, the team reduced marketing costs by bringing everything in-house instead of relying on apartment websites or marketing companies. Rockstar Capital’s ability to innovate and to stay on top of current marketing trends enables them to get ahead of its competitors in an industry that is notoriously slow on keeping up with modern marketing.

As a marketing department, they have been running an immense conglomerate of campaigns to fully establish their brands in the Multifamily industry. For four consecutive years, Rockstar’s properties have been recognized as the top in the nation—five of their properties rank in the Online Reputation Assessment (ORA) Top Rated Elite 1% among 116,000 other properties nationwide.

Rockstar Capital won the Bronze Stevie for Marketing Department of the Year in The 2020 American Business Awards®.

How Italy is Transforming the Auto Industry

Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Wed, Jan 30, 2019 @ 03:14 PM

With the influx of electric car companies, automobile functionality and design are finally becoming smarter, but are car-related rules and regulations keeping up? Artificial intelligence capabilities are migrating from our phones and finding new ways to be helpful behind the steering wheel, but these advances in computers, sensors, and software mean legislation needs to address new problems and situations. Simply put, these laws must provide a more nuanced and modern take on what today’s drivers need.

Automobile Club d’Italia (ACI) is a public institution dedicated to promoting and safeguarding the interests of Italian motorists. They carry out their mission to promote road safety, to act for a sustainable mobility, and to support and to develop motorsports by enhancing their positive attributes. The company also aims for all Italian citizens to have equal access to mobility-related services. To that end, they provide the necessary support to ensure social programs are never negatively affected by any kind of private profit.

aci automobile

Over 100 Years of Service

ACI and motorists want new measures aimed primarily at eliminating older and obsolete vehicles. This will contribute to decreased pollution, as well as less vehicular accidents (in number and severity).

Luckily, ACI is a governmental institution. Ludovico Fois, the external relations and institutional affairs advisor at ACI, speaks to that.

“It’s our duty to provide all citizens with proper, correct information and assistance concerning all mobility-related matters, regardless of the interests from various business players.”

ACI has been working for mobile Italian citizens for over 100 years, guiding and assisting Italian motorists, as well as supporting the development of a new mobility culture. As a result, Italian road users recognize ACI as their reference point for many mobility-connected matters.

“Public policy considerations clearly guide all our activities, and we commit ourselves to establishing a concept of mobility that’s smart, sustainable, accessible, and inclusive.”

Electric Challenges

Intelligent transport systems and services, digital applications, electric-powered engines, and a litany of unforeseen changes all look to contribute to future mobility challenges. Deep technological changes in the automotive sector will require more dynamic, rational, flexible, and environmentally friendly responses to sustain this new mobility culture.

ACI spent years creating a wide network of field offices, acting as a model for other companies looking to create concrete change through legislative bodies. They eventually covered the entire national territory and had a main office based in Rome, Italy. This led to widespread cooperation with governmental Italian institutions, trade associations, and European organizations, a critical synergy for progress.

ACI also organizes a wide range of activities, including road safety and driver education classes, roadside assistance, vehicle paperwork, traffic information services, and motorsport events. The breadth of offerings is indicative of the complex needs of the industry which will have to be monitored as the technologies evolve.

Just like ride-sharing companies, such as Uber and Lyft, and countless tech firms trying to eliminate or to mitigate driving-related annoyances with new technological advances, ACI is traversing this wild west of mobility. For their campaign to promote a new mobility culture, ACI won a Bronze Stevie for Communications or PR Campaign of the Year in The International Business Awards®.

“We’ve worked very hard to achieve a deep culture shift, and we’ve definitely learned it needs the generalized involvement of decision makers, designers, and technicians, as well as road users.”
