What Is the Difference Between Owned, Earned and Paid Media?

The following information is provided by the Center for REALTOR® Development.

The difference between owned, earned and paid media is an important distinction that should be understood by every professional hoping to make a digital impact and generate online exposure and leads. Ultimately, you should think about if and how to address each of these types of media in your annual or ongoing marketing planning.

Things to consider in your overall plan are the budget that you’re willing to invest (such as for online advertising) and time that you have to spare (such as for writing a blog).

Below, we’ll briefly explain what the different types of media are, and give some examples of each.

Owned Media – This type is media that you have complete control over and which you typically expend effort to create yourself. Examples include:

  • Video is a rich method of communication. Video can be used for many different types of messaging and storytelling, such as testimonials, education, buyer tours, virtual community tours, interviews, and “just moved in” announcements.
  • Photos are an excellent way to showcase your community without having to write a lot of content. Walk your community, and let your photos capture the essence of where you live and work.
  • Blogging can require a significant time investment on a weekly basis, and results will not be immediate. Success through blogging or any other social media channel comes from consistency and repetition over time.

Earned Media – This type of media is “earned” through the good work you do and your reputation, and comes about through the analysis, voice, comments and opinions of others. Examples include:

  • Productivity rankings compiled by franchises, associations, individual firms, and websites developed specifically for this purpose.
  • Consumer-focused rating and review sites, such as Yelp.com, Angie’s List, and at major portal agent profiles, such as those on realtor.com®.
  • Companies that send surveys directly to clients on behalf of real estate professionals; these surveys actually generate testimonials for agents that they can leverage.

Paid Media – This type of media is media that you pay for and which uses placement to bring traffic and visitors to your web properties.

  • Search engine marketing (SEM) encompasses all kinds of search engine–centered marketing strategies. At the heart of SEM, you’re paying so that your website appears at the top of the list when someone searches for a keyword or several keywords that you feel are relevant to your site.
  • Search engine optimization (SEO) refers to efforts (often fee-based) to make your website organically place or rank higher in the unpaid results. SEO is important because search algorithms are constantly changing, making it a challenge to stay up-to-date and relevant so that potential customers can easily find you.
  • Unlike traditional forms of media advertising, online advertising gives you a lot more options. You can pay by impressions (or views), traditionally measured in pay-per-mile (PPM, price per 1000 impressions) or pay-per-impression (PPI). You can also use pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. Each model has its place.

New! Advertise With Instagram Stories

In real estate, agents focus on telling stories. Whether it’s the seller’s memories in their old home or the buyer’s hopeful dreams in their new one, agents try to build emotional connections with their clients.

Launched in 2010, Instagram has grown from a platform used only for pictures of fancy food and artful lattes to a social media giant. With over 800 million monthly active users, it’s no wonder Instagram Stories has also boomed, now with 250 million daily active users.

Instagram users were first introduced to Stories back in August 2016. Similar to Snapchat, Stories allows users to create 15-second snippets of pictures and videos that are viewable to their followers for 24 hours. With the popularity of Stories increasing, Instagram recently released new advertising features for businesses, making it an even better connection tool. Here are some tips that can help you stand out, and ways you can create Instagram Stories to boost your business.

What’s New
While Stories has been connecting friends for years, businesses are now able to sponsor ads that will appear in users’ streams. Instagram opened this advertising option to select businesses in January and to general users in March. As long as a user has a business profile, they’re able to take advantage of this feature. Businesses are able to use any of the content publishing options, and can include a call-to-action, providing a unique way to connect with a specifically-targeted audience.

Best Practices
While the overall function of the ads is simple enough, there are some best practices to follow when posting to Stories. It’s important that the first segment of your story is visually appealing and grabs your viewer’s attention. Instagram Stories’ has historically been used to share raw footage. Use this to your advantage by showcasing a unique side of your business that will draw the viewer in to watch the next segments, which will eventually lead to your call-to-action. It’s also critical to have some kind of call-to action. Many ads save this for the last segment by using a slide that says something similar to “swipe up for more information,” which then leads to the company website.

In addition to this, it’s important to make your brand name visible at some point in the story. This not only shows viewers who they’re watching, but also helps to develop the connection between your brand and your content. You could do this by wearing your company shirt, standing in front of your logo, etc.

Finally, make your content relevant to your viewers. Think about your overall advertising goal and consider how your Instagram Stories would support that goal. In your story you could share a tip, give a sneak peek at a how-to guide, show an inside look at a facet of your business, and more. Since this kind of advertising is immediate, if you’re releasing it around a holiday, focus your content around something suitable for the time.

Uses in Real Estate
When it comes to real estate, Instagram Stories can be a useful tool to create more meaningful engagement with viewers. Agents can use Stories to give a sneak peek of a new listing by showcasing different rooms or unique features of a home. Another option could be to share shots of an open house you’re hosting.

Finally, users love to know what happens behind the scenes at a company. Give them what they want by snapping pictures of new marking materials, introducing a new agent who joined your brokerage group, or sharing footage of a recent company celebration. Remember to include a call-to-action at the end of each story to draw in viewers. Something as simple as “swipe up to find homes like this in your area” or “swipe up to find out how we can help you find your dream home” serves your purpose.

While Instagram is a great way to promote your brand and your listings, it can be challenging for a busy real estate professional to maintain, along with other social sites. Need help managing your social presence? Homes.com’s Social team is here to help. Homes.com Social is a comprehensive social media suite designed specifically for real estate professionals who are looking to better connect and engage with their audience. Give your real estate brand a social media strategy that is sure to boost your business.
