Coldwell Banker Mid-America Group first started working with Spinutech in January 2015. Their goal then — which remains the same today — was to drive new leads to their member agents.
Recognizing the unique impact that seasons have on the real estate industry, we researched seasonal trends and shaped our display advertising, paid search campaigns, and social media strategy based on those positive and negative trends. Our goal was to maximize the efficiency of our campaigns and perform above industry averages in terms of impressions and conversions.
Since partnering in 2015, impressions on our paid search campaigns for Coldwell Banker Mid-America Group have declined each year, but click-through rate (CTR) and conversions have increased from 1.27% and 10,838, respectively, in our first year to 9.18% and 41,866, respectively, in 2018. This illustrates how we have made more efficient use of their budget, optimizing our paid search campaigns to reach consumers who are more likely to convert.
Our display advertising efforts have also seen dramatic increases in CTR and conversions, but also impressions. Impressions have quadrupled between 2015 and 2018, coinciding with a rise in CTR from 0.11% to 0.85% and conversions from 179 to 8,185. There has been a similar increase on social media, with average post reach on Facebook increasing 579% over a two-year period.
“Spinutech not only helps us bring our ideas to life but also brings ideas to the table. Our account manager is like an extension of our Marketing Team. We greatly appreciate our mutual rapport and her understanding of our business and goals.”Rachel E. Delzell, Vice President of Marketing, Coldwell Banker Mid-America Group
Multiple custom paid search campaigns provide layers of targeting to expand reach and connect with users who have specific searches and needs. Localized efforts in specific cities allow for flexibility, agility, and granularity without affecting reach.
Display advertising drives consistent awareness to relevant users through ads that are set up to remarket to users looking to purchase homes in a specific geographic area.
