Start with understanding what each medium is used for. Here are some things to know about Instagram, Facebook, video and email marketing.

An exclusively visual photo-sharing platform, Instagram boasts a community of 800 million people who share an average of 95 million posts per day. With more than 500 million daily users, Instagram is a social media platform that presents an abundance of opportunities.

Instagram does not complement all types of business models or marketing tactics. It’s only worth investing in this platform is you have the required assets to dedicate to it. If Instagram does align with your social media strategy, it’s an excellent platform to grow your brand. The best way to harness the marketing potential Instagram poses for your brand is to embrace and use all the tools it offers.

In the property industry especially, cultivating relationships with both current and potential customers is fundamental. Trust and reputation are the foundations upon which brands are built and marketing domains of influence are grown.

By sending valuable insights, fresh news and helpful resources relevant to the product that the enquirer has expressed an interest in, you will be able to position your brand as a trustworthy expert in your field.
