“During our three-month pilot, the SmartSocial Ads program delivered impressive results,” said Cathy Harrington, Lyon’s Director of Marketing. “We saw a 1000%+ increase in traffic to our property listing pages on the website, and our average clickthrough rates for the ads rose to over 20% (which is 20x the Facebook average for our industry), generating much higher and qualified exposure of our listings.”

“Buyers and sellers are becoming more digitally savvy and expect their agent to leverage technology that delivers results,” added Shea. “Introducing products that contribute to the success of our sellers, our agents, and the properties we represent is a top priority for us.”

The program launched to all 950 Lyon agents in 17 offices throughout the Greater Sacramento area.
