WATCH: Social Media Advertising Is on Sale! Learn How to Take Advantage

April 24 2020

While the coronavirus pandemic has been a stressor for most real estate agents and brokers, there are a few bright spots. Among them are significant decreases in the cost of social media advertising.

This is driven by changes in consumer behavior. There are more people sitting at home browsing their social networks (supply), and fewer companies advertising (demand), resulting in lower costs.

However, not all social platforms are experiencing the same drop in costs. Waze, for example, is actually getting more expensive because fewer people are driving. So where can real estate pros get the most bang for their buck?

That's what we explored in a recent webinar. Tim Condon of Homesnap (and a bunch of enlightening charts and graphs) joined us to explore advertising cost trends across multiple social networks. Watch the webinar recording below to learn how to take advantage of the drop in social advertising prices.
