In a constantly evolving industry, it's important to create a marketing strategy that is comprehensive in its reach to generate more opportunities for your business. In 2021, online advertising should be a tenant of your digital strategy. During the pandemic alone, we are seeing more consumers at home and online, making paid search advertising even more valuable—in addition to consumers’ already shifting tastes towards digital.
But how do you get started with online advertising as a home services company? There are many factors to consider when developing an online advertising strategy, but the most critical step is creating your target audience.
How to Develop Your Audience
It’s important to create an audience comprised of the people who align with your products and services, otherwise you’ll just be spending money without yielding quality results. As a home services professional, here are some key attributes you should consider when thinking about developing your advertising audience:
Older homes. Older homes are in need of, you guessed it, improvements. When creating your target audience, make sure you focus on older homes and not newer builds or home developments.
Older homeowners. In today’s age, there aren’t many 18-25 year old homeowners in need of remodeling services. The most common group of home remodeling consumers are older homeowners who have been in their homes for quite a few years. Segmenting by age is one of the best things you can do in your advertising platform. By narrowing your target demographic by age, you’re more likely to reach more people interested in your services and drive higher quality traffic to your website.
Specific Zip Codes. If you know specific areas may be populated with older homes, it’s important to advertise to them. Additionally, if you know you do well in certain areas, find similar neighborhoods to focus your advertising. More often than not, if one person on a block gets work done in their home, their neighbors might also be in the market for your services.
