Having operated in California for several years, the client maintained a firm hold on offering services for both buyers and sellers of average priced homes. Ntooitive was met with the challenge of bringing more attention to luxury buyers in the region, as homes priced over $3 million were sitting on the market for a prolonged amount of time.
Ntooitive Digital worked closely with the client’s team to learn the processes and platforms used to market high-end listings. Through this strategy, the teams reviewed a recently launched luxury specific website. While this site was incredibly effective at driving high quality users to specific listings, traffic volume was minimal due to a low SEO ranking. This revelation led to a twofold project plan. The client’s SEO team worked to improve their ranking, while Ntooitive developed a plan to increase traffic through paid marketing, programmatic display, and search engine marketing.
Programmatic display leveraged a variety of targeting tactics including behavioral, category, and remarketing. For both our behavioral and category strategies we worked to pair high income, high net worth individuals with online activities indicative of home buyers. This helped fill the top of the funnel initially. With the onsite conversion pixels that Ntooitive established, we were able to refine this audience further with custom lookalike models. Segmented remarketing was then used to help push users further down the funnel and to educate them of new listings that fit their prior listing views.

The overarching programmatic display and paid search helped increase luxury home sales. It brought general buzz to the website and led to increases in organic searches. The search engine marketing highlighted the authority and quality of the relatively new luxury site.
