Facebook News Feed ads have unique characteristics that go beyond traditional display advertising.
Pleasanton, California (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
SmartZip Analytics, Inc., a leader in analytics-powered targeted marketing for real estate businesses, has now extended its solution to include advertising on Facebook News Feeds. This enhancement automatically puts the real estate agent’s or broker’s brand right on the Facebook pages of specific homeowners identified by SmartZip’s proven predictive models as mostly likely to move.
SmartZip’s predictive marketing solution, called SmartTargeting, brings big data, predictive analytics, and marketing automation together to help real estate agents identify and connect with the best home seller prospects, enabling them to win more listings. With this extension of SmartTargeting’s social advertising to Facebook, agents’ brands are placed front and center where Facebook users spend the most time: their News Feed. “One of the great things about SmartZip is their dedication to remaining cutting edge with respect to finding new ways to keep my name and profile, as a Realtor, in front of possible Sellers," said George Fotion of Call Realty Company. "Prospecting is a daunting, yet necessary task and anything that can help me reach more quality prospects, is a great thing. The new Facebook News Feed ads are a great way to gently remind the homeowners in my farm that I’m here ready to serve.”
Facebook News Feed ads strongly supplement the existing Facebook display (Right Hand Rails) ad formats that were introduced earlier this year on the SmartTargeting platform. “Facebook News Feed ads have unique characteristics that go beyond traditional display advertising,” said president and CEO, Avi Gupta. “Since they appear persistently in the user’s stream, each ad is typically viewed repeatedly and can also be shared virally with friends and neighbors.”
The SmartTargeting platform is composed of three precisely targeted online ad channels, all intended to put the agent’s brand proactively in front of the best prospects, giving agents a competitive edge and building their trust with future sellers:
- SmartZip Online Ad Targeting – Agent-branded ads are served to targeted home seller prospects while they browse thousands of top internet sites.
- SmartZip Social Ad Targeting – Agent-branded ads are served to targeted homeowners right on their Facebook pages: both within their News Feed, as well as along the right hand side.
- SmartZip Ad Retargeting – Agent-branded ads are served (across online and social) to homeowners that respond to any marketing campaign sent out by SmartTargeting, to automatically nurture such respondents on behalf of the agent.
