Instagram represents a great opportunity for Realtors to further leverage their investment in professional photos and videos! Have you been wondering if it might make sense to engage your target audience here? Consider some of the following statistics:
Instagram has over 500 million active monthly users.
Your customers are here!
Instagram users have shared over 40 billion photos to date and share an average of 95 million photos and videos per day… and
Instagram users “like” 4.2 billion posts per day.
Your customers are using it A LOT!
80% of Instagram users come from outside of the U.S.
International buyers love South Florida real estate! You can engage these subsets here.
Top brands post 4.9 times per week on Instagram, an increase of more than 50% over 2015. (Forrester Research)
60% of the top brands on Instagram use a consistent filter.
75% of Instagram users take action, such as visiting a website, after looking at an Instagram advertising post.
Posts with at least one hashtag average 12.6% more engagement.
BTW… Hashtags are THE WAY to make your Instagram posts targeted.
Hashtag your town, your farm area, your niche market, and combinations of all of the above. Examples: #Coralsprings #CanyonForrest #LakeWorthRealEsate #WellingtonHomes
Piggyback on common hashtags used by your target audience. Examples: #Boatinglife #BoyntonBeachInlet #WellingtonPolo #SaltLife #HighlandBeachLife
