In the past years, digital marketing has propelled businesses to the top and helped them reach their goal, in real estate in particular.
In fact, according to safaridigital.com, 62% of consumers won't even bother to check or consider real estate businesses with no online presence.
That being said, it is always imperative to be on top of the digital marketing trends for you to know what's working, what's not, and what will stay.
As we're quickly nearing the end of another year and 2022 is sitting just around the corner, it is the right time for your business to have a look at the latest digital marketing trends the coming new year has to offer to give your business a boost.
Social Media Stories
Almost all social media platforms are starting to have the "stories" feature much like our favorites, Facebook and Instagram.
Social media stories provide a different but fantastic way for you to showcase your listings, expertise, and what's going on with your business. Reality-based style of presenting is now a trend with online consumers, so social media stories will be your best approach.
With the competition on social media, your real estate business should be posting stories each day for you to stay on top of the game.
Let's be honest, most of us cannot live without our phones. We use them to browse the internet, pay our bills, and even look for our future homes. That's why it only makes sense for your business to make your website mobile-friendly.
Your website design should be mapped out on the smallest of screens to ensure your audience and prospects have the best mobile experience when searching for their dream homes.
Your website should have streamlined navigation menus, less text-heavy content, and be touchscreen-friendly all over.
You don't want your prospects to go through a lot of trouble just to get more details about your listings, do you?
Instagram allows you to tag a post easily to your website or landing pages. This feature will make it easier for your prospects to check on you and enjoy their social media browsing at the same time.
Voice-activated digital assistants changed the way we do things online. The coming year 2022 promises us more of it.
By applying the right keywords to your SEO, voice searches can definitely become an advantage. You increase your visibility and discoverability, and this keeps your business on top.

This is why every marketing strategy involves plans to increase engagement and, as 2022 comes knocking, you can expect digital marketing to provide users with more opportunities to become more engaged.
