615 million devices now use social media ad blockers. This means when you purchase an ad with a social media platform, people who may want to see your product are opting out of seeing your ad due to the overwhelming sea of spam.
The most effective means of directly communicating with your buyers is by being in the place they are looking. Where are they looking? Obviously, people are looking in the convenience of the palm of their own hands at unprecedented levels. But how is your listing going to be seen in the endless vastness of the internet? The answer is in the direct listing.
Don’t give the opportunity for them to see the other listers through the use of placing a QR Code on your print ads. Our studies have shown that agents want to be exclusive and the best means of isolating your ads from the others and still being seen is through smaller print ads that are digitally linked to larger fully informative web pages. This eliminates the possibility of being ad blocked and utilizes the best ad space for the money. QR Codes make direct linking possible to any web page or website where real estate is endless.
