This week on The Home Builder Digital Marketing Podcast, Kellie Little of FieldStone Homes joins Greg and Kevin to discuss how home builders can keep digital marketing fresh by learning and implementing new technology.
Humans are crucial when it comes to guiding, supporting, and educating home buyers. However, technology should also be an integral part of the home buying process. Kellie says,
“…there are a lot of buyers out there that need someone that they can ask questions to, they need a wise guide. They need to know that they have someone that they can go to, and they know you’re an expert, you will help them through this process. So, I actually think that there’s a real need for people, but I think there’s a real need for technology and that we need to know the right time for the right solution within the home buying process as well as once they’re under contract and past closing.”
Because digital tools are becoming increasingly essential when purchasing a home, home builder digital marketers should constantly educate themselves on new technology. Kellie explains,
“But I think the interesting thing about being in IT is that what you do isn’t just what’s on the market right now, but it’s an overall awareness of emerging technology and learning how to incorporate that into your business. So, sometimes we see technology just in the moment, but it’s really a much bigger picture than that, how you’re going to use new and emerging technology to benefit your marketing strategy and get to more home buyers to increase your effective use of dollars.”
Home builder digital marketing can be challenging, but it is important to keep strategies relevant with new technology. Kellie says,
“…the market can be difficult sometimes, but I think the key to marketing is just to keep it fresh. Let’s have a little bit of fun here, but we’re here to provide real solutions for real home buyers. It’s a great place for us to be where we get to tell these fun stories and share the opportunity to have a new home.”
