)-- For Rent Media Solutions™, a leading apartment resource for searching apartment communities nationwide and a division of Dominion Enterprises, is proud to announce the exclusive partnership formed between ParaRentar.com and Batanga.com. ParaRentar.com now provides all apartment listings for Batanga.com on a co-branded Web page.
“Created by For Rent Media Solutions, ParaRentar.com is the first fully-translated Spanish Web site that caters to the Spanish-speaking apartment seeker,” said Terry Slattery, vice president and general manager of For Rent Media Solutions. “We are ecstatic to partner with such a leading Web site in the Hispanic community as Batanga.com. This partnership will go a long way in solidifying our relationship with our Spanish-speaking customers.”
As the exclusive apartment listing provider on Batanga.com, ParaRentar.com provides Spanish-speaking apartment seekers a variety of apartments to choose from nationwide. Batanga.com has added the “Apartamentos” sub-header to their “Vida” page, specifically for the apartment seeker who chooses to search their site for ParaRentar.com’s listings. Spanish-speaking apartment seekers can either utilize the mini-search box on the “Vida” page to select the city and price range of their choice, or click on the “Apartamentos” sub-header, where they will then be brought directly to the co-branded Web site. Since January, apartment seekers have been able to access the Para Rentar Web site through the ParaRentar.com banner ads located through out Batanga.com. The new co-branded page now brings the audience to the apartment of their choice without having to leave Batanga.com.
“ParaRentar.com will provide a consumer-driven apartment solution directly on our Web site,” said Rick Marroquin, chief marketing officer of Batanga. “We are excited to have the opportunity to work with ParaRentar.com and For Rent Media Solutions, because they are such a recognizable name within the multi-family housing industry.”
As Batanga.com grows in popularity, it is generating a significant amount of online traffic. comScore Media Metrix, the industry standard for Internet audience measurement data, reports a 371 percent growth in Web site traffic when comparing April 2006 to April 2007. Both comScore and the Association of Hispanic Advertising Agencies Conference note that Batanga.com is the fastest-growing Hispanic multimedia Web site.
