This week on The Home Builder Digital Marketing Podcast, Eva Gribler of Onyx+East joins Greg and Kevin to discuss how to weather the continuous need for change in home builder marketing.
The home building industry is constantly evolving and so must marketing strategies. Home builder marketers should be ready and willing to adapt. Eva says,
“So, just making sure that we are changing with the times. Making sure that we are doing the things that get people interested in our product. Just make sure that you are not afraid to change.”
Marketing requires experimentation. It’s about figuring out what works and what doesn’t and being willing to adjust accordingly. Eva describes,
“I think it’s just research and trial and error…Now, in today’s market, you have to catch someone’s attention in the first four seconds of a video. If it’s not working, I think it’s just take it down, move on, and let’s try something else.”
The continual evolution of home builder marketing is what makes it so exhilarating. Eva explains,
“That’s the great thing about marketing is that it’s different every day, and that’s what makes marketing so exciting. When you come in the door, you think you have a plan for the day, and most of the time it doesn’t happen and we’re not doing the same thing day in and day out. It’s exciting, it’s fun, it’s fresh, and it’s invigorating.”
Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about how to embrace the ever-changing home builder marketing business.
