Fund managers are leveraging technology in a multitude of ways to land new investors. Trion Properties has slowly added technology and social media strategies to gain new investors—while also continuing to utilize more conventional methods. The strategy has helped the firm to grow significantly in its three year history, and it plans to continue to add social media tactics in 2019.

“In 2018, we have done a lot of crowdfunding and added Internet market, like Google Ad Words and Facebook marketing. That has definitely been different from what we did in 2016 and 2017,” Max Sharkansky, managing partner at Trion Properties, tells GlobeSt.com. “These are new avenues. Because of the JOBS Act, which adds general solicitation, we can advertise on Google and Facebook, and we can advertise our funds. It is definitely a brave new world with how sponsors can correspond with investors. We have also continued to do the usual stuff, like attending conferences and real estate events.”
