Did you know that 65% of home buyers say they are influenced by a friend’s homebuying posts on Facebook or Instagram?
Social media has a huge impact on our day-to-day lives both personally and professionally. As a marketing tool, social media gives you a simple outlet for promoting your brand and your business.
The use of the 80/20 Rule can be a way to leverage your social media: 80% of your social media posts should inform, educate and entertain while only 20% should directly promote your business.
There are so many engaging things you can post on your channels. For instance, promoting listings or open houses, industry news, local involvement, or highlighting local businesses and partners. You can offer home improvement tips and even silly (but appropriate) memes!
When creating posts, something you can ask yourself is “What do people want to know about me and my business?” Try to provide strong content that your followers can relate to. Remember, you want to always drive traffic to your lead capturing websites or providing a call to action.
We recommend creating a social media calendar for each month with an action plan of your posts. Using a social media posting tool like Hootsuite or Sprout Social is a way to keep your posts organized and automated.
