What does “Psychogeography” have to do with lead engagement for real estate?

What does “Psychogeography” have to do with lead engagement for real estate?

First, what does Psychogeography even mean? It’s a highly academic term, but for practical purposes we need to understand that it essentially tries to relate human behaviors and emotion to physical location. This seems obvious, right? We think of people in different neighborhoods, suburbs, and cities as generally different in their behaviors or personalities.

The Four Rules of Instagram for Real Estate Pros

The Four Rules of Instagram for Real Estate Pros

Scrolling through the average Instagram feed tends to yield picturesque shots of beaches at sunset, adorable puppies, and, of course, selfie after selfie. For many real estate pros, Instagram is unfamiliar territory which, at first blush, doesn’t seem suited for lead generation and relationship building. However, this is a mistake. What began as an image-centric way to connect with friends has grown into a digital marketing juggernaut that needs to be a part of every real estate pro’s arsenal. Instagram launched in 2010 and now has over 700 million active monthly users, sharing an average of 95 million photos and videos per day. While it does not have as many users as Twitter and Facebook, Instagram offers far more bang for its marketing buck: The rate of return for branding products and services on the platform is almost 60 times that of Facebook and it provides 120 percent more user interactions than Twitter. To put it bluntly, Instagram is the cash cow of digital marketing and lead generation platforms for real estate agents.
