Boost by HomeSpotter is an automated digital advertising service that makes it easy, convenient, and significantly less manual for agents like you to launch targeted ad campaigns for new listings, open houses, and more that will be seen on Facebook, Instagram and across the web by thousands of potential buyers. That way you can focus on your leads and potential customers while your advertising runs in the background on major social media platforms and websites.

Here we cover just the Boost basics, so be sure to check the Boost Help Center for even more specific questions and features information, including the step-by-step of how to create an ad and tips for making the most of your automated Boost account.

How Boost works

Since your brokerage has already partnered with Boost by HomeSpotter to help automate your digital marketing efforts, you can sit back and let us do the work.

Have a new property to advertise? Using your listing information, Boost will automatically build an ad with a high-res image, smart copy, and tagged with valuable geographic and other data to target the perfect audience of potential buyers.

Boost sets itself apart from other apps with fine-tuned targeting technology and smart presets that make advertising homes a cinch for agents like you. You can interact with Boost as much or as little as you’d like. Rest assured, your ads will be seen by thousands of potential buyers across the largest websites and social media platforms.

How to get started

You're already in! Anytime you have a new listing that matches your brokerage's criteria to promote the listing on your behalf, you'll be notified through an email from boost@homespotter.com letting you know that your ad will go live shortly. (Be sure to add us to your safe sender list!)

You can either let your ad go live on its own, or you can go into your very own Boost dashboard to make tweaks to the ad if you’d like.

In your Boost dashboard, you'll also have access to:

  • Pre-built optimized video and image ad templates for all your listings and personal brand

  • Branded ad landing pages with built-in lead and engagement capture

  • Discounted pricing on ad purchases

  • The ability to make tweaks to copy, targeting, and visuals

Reminder: Boost automates ads with the most optimized copy, visuals, and targeted to online audiences most likely to click through the ad! (So we recommend you keep the preset ad as is).

Do even more with Boost!

Planning on hosting an open house (or maybe a virtual open house)? Let Boost help you drive traffic to your event. We can also help you promote a price reduction, a recent sale, or maybe you’ve got a listing that’s been on the market for a while and you want to give it an extra Boost. We’ve got an ad for that!

We can even help you go beyond your active listings and help you promote YOU with a personal brand awareness campaign, or take your advertising to the next level and use our tool to create a video ad to promote your listing.
