Social media is a huge tool for promoting your business and a great way to help grow your sphere of influence. Not only is social media free, but a majority of your clients are already using it – so it’s a no-brainer that you should be utilizing it too!
We understand there are many social media platforms, and you only have time to keep up with a few of them between your busy schedules of listing appointments and buyer showings. Let’s look at 3 of the best social media platforms you should utilize in your business and how to get the most out of them.
2022 Stats & Demographics: 2.93 billion active monthly users – 86% are 18-29 years old, 77% are 30-49 years old, 51% are 50-65 years old
Facebook has remained the top social media platform for businesses. It has changed a lot over the years but is still popular among users of all different age groups – especially first-time home buyers and millennials. In addition to your personal page, it’s important to consider a Facebook business page to separate your business and personal lives. This is a great platform for giveaways, connecting with other local businesses, and more!
Big Facebook Takeaway: Respond to comments on your posts to increase your engagement and stay top of mind.
2022 Stats & Demographics: 1 billion monthly active users – 67% are 18-29 years old, 47% are 30-49 years, 23% are 50-64 years old
Instagram is another social media platform with a significant age range of demographics, with most people in the first-time homebuyer and millennial age groups. Instagram focuses specifically on images and video, two things that Realtors® should have a lot of. This is a great platform to showcase your listings, behind-the-scenes, and more!
Big Instagram Takeaway: Utilize your Instagram stories! The more you post on your stories, the more you will pop up as one of the first stories on your followers’ pages.
2022 Stats & Demographics: 89.7 million monthly active users – 21% are 18-24 years old, 60% are 25-34 years old, 17% are 35-54 years old
LinkedIn is often a social media platform we forget about because it’s a little different than Facebook and Instagram, but still very important for your business. LinkedIn focuses on business professionals, many in the 25-34 age group, and is a great platform to network with other Realtors® and like-minded individuals.
Big LinkedIn Takeaway: Keep your profile updated and connect with others in the industry.
