Where to Spend on Leads: Zillow? Facebook? Google?
Should you spend advertising dollars on Zillow or Realtor.com?

Making the choice between Zillow and Realtor.com or Google and Facebook ads
Making the most out of your ad spend
There are a couple of things to bear in mind as you manage your ad spend:
1. Retargeting – Ads are not a one and done opportunity. Chime offers Dynamic Ads and retargeting capabilities which are especially useful when you are building out a branded ad campaign. By generating ads that are customized to your brand and active listings, prospects can be quickly retargeted with the same ad after their initial click. Integrated with Chime’s IDX and AI assistant, dynamic ads are a great way to get in front of new people within your Facebook community and stay top of mind.
2. Registration – You need a registration form to capture lead information once a prospect comes to your site, but the rules are changing on when and how you ask for those details. With Chime, you can customize the registration form to suit your needs. Do you want people to sign in moment they try to view listings on your site? Or are you comfortable offering them two to three homes to view first and then asking for registration? Test and see what works best for your market.
3. Regrouping – The success of your ad campaign is not tied to the dollar amount. As Tristian noted, many agents miss the opportunity to garner more leads because once they turn on a Google PPC campaign they fail to go back and look at it again. How is it performing? What are your conversion rates? Is your dialogue working? Let the data be your guide.
