Real Estate Marketing

A social network relates to social sciences that study social relationships within a given group of people or organizations. The goal is to understand the social interaction between the members of the groups. Each social network has its own characteristics and can be defined in different ways and should clear in your real estate marketing plan. For example a social network can be based on demographics such as age, income, gender, home ownership, employment status, and geographic location. To add more depth, think about psychographics that have variables related to a person’s personality like values, attitudes, interests, and lifestyles. Philadelphia Digital Marketing
