DMCI Homes connects residents through online community blogsite
The DMCI Communities website (communities.dmcihomes.com) went online recently as the first developer-initiated online portal in the country that will serve as a venue for residents to link up and connect with each other while giving the rest of the netizens a sense of what it feels like to live in a DMCI Homes community.
Formally launched at two sites recently, namely at the East Raya Gardens in Pasig City and Royal Palm Residences in Acacia Estates, Taguig City, the blogsite unveiling was dubbed as a festive and fun-filled event for start-up families who mostly comprise the target population of DMCI Homes developments.
Going against the trend by other developers to minimize direct contact and interaction with its residents, DMCI Homes once again pioneers an innovative approach to changing the property sector by aggressively reaching out to its community members. This strategy is foreseen to help improve the company’s initiatives in effectively managing its communities while at the same time encouraging harmonious relationships between unit owners of each development.
The blogsite is also a relevant move to tap online communities as well as residents whose lifestyle now includes active internet usage both for business and leisure. With streaming data coming in from everywhere about various stories and concerns, DMCI Homes saw it crucial to be proactive in establishing a credible and accessible online site which residents can use to air their views and suggestions to their community members, community officers, and as well as to their project developer.
Through a user-friendly interface that anyone can use and visit anytime, online visitors can surf for various news, events about their DMCI Homes community, and even lifestyle topics that address condo living. It also serves to provide an official community presence on the Web, as against scattered, informal communities on the net that may confuse or mislead other information seekers.
Featuring an exciting array of sections, the DMCI Communities blogsite also presents helpful tips such as recipes and home décor suggestions, informative articles, a community bulletin board, recipes, home decor suggestions, a local business directory, testimonial stories by unit owners, and even a multimedia collection of engaging videos and photos to be seen at the different DMCI Homes locations. There are also discussion forums where residents can tackle various issues or topics, plus pages that can link users to DMCI Homes’ Property Management Office (PMO), and Customer Care Departments. The blogsite is also just a click away from linking with popular social media sites like Facebook and YouTube.
To further drum up interest on the blogsite, DMCI Homes has even launched the Feel Good Moments Photo Contest. Open to all residents from any DMCI Homes project, participants can just upload their “feel good” moment photos within their community on the blogsite and get the chance to win a three-day, two-night accommodation at Alta Vista de Boracay. Winners will be selected every month, starting from February to April 2012.
A total of 20 finalists will also be selected to join the Grand Finals, which will award winners with cash prizes and the chance to be featured on leading dailies. More contest mechanics can be seen at the blogsite.
DMCI Homes is the country’s premier triple A builder-developer that brings serviced, themed communities within reach of urban families who once had limited residential options, but still aspire to achieve a comfortable, enriching quality of life proximate to their place of work.
