This week on The Home Builder Digital Marketing Podcast, Samantha Ostert of Skogman Homes joins Greg and Kevin to discuss how small changes in digital marketing strategy can lead to big results.
Digital marketing is constantly evolving, and new opportunities arise almost every day. Samantha says,
“There’s so many cool things out there. It’s hard not to get caught up in the cool versus what really will convert.”
One thing that does remain constant in digital marketing is the focus on experience and how to communicate that effectively. Samantha says,
“Well, it’s not about what we have to offer, it’s about what we’re providing through that experience and how can we translate that out digitally or through our marketing and through the moment somebody walks in the door.”
Digital marketing is about progression, and small changes can create substantial outcomes. Samantha says,
“It’s not going to hurt anything to try something new. Make small improvements to make big results.”
Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about how the implementation of small changes can generate major effects.
