If you are an estate or letting agent and you are interested in social media advertising, you might be wondering if you’re going to get results versus your traditional channels. After all, there are so many channels when it comes to buying, letting, renting or selling your property – will social media advertising be a short term or a long-term solution?
Undoubtedly, when it comes to making a sale or a let, you’re keen to involve as few 3rd parties as possible. But did you know that social media advertising for property is actually a very good long-term strategy that can help grow your company or business by driving relevant traffic, better SEO power and interested people towards you and your properties?
According to one study, 94% of millennials and 84% baby boomers used various sites to search for their future home.
Why social media works for Estate and Lettings Agents
Think about how clients usually find you. It’s likely they start with a search engine and type in some phrase like “real estate agent [city].” If your website accurately depicts your information, you should be easy to locate and have shareable listings. Being on social media makes this search even more relevant because their connections may also be following or engaging with you. Suddenly you have gone from being an unknow entity to someone they can trust.
This is why social media works perfectly for estate agents – as you know, referrals are the best kind of marketing for your business.
An online social media presence such as an active Twitter, Instagram or Facebook Page, enables you to collect both reviews and advertise your services. For ease of communication, you can make sure clients can book appointments with you or message for questions – a one stop shop!
When it comes to advertising your lettings, social media also provides an advantage in cots. Unlike paper-based mail outs, letters and door drops, cold calls and traditional marketing campaigns, you’re saving money and reaching the people most relevant to your properties.
Whether you are looking for new families, newlyweds or single males to let your property, people moving to or travelling to your area, the data we willingly provide social networks allows you to target at a granular level and reach these people immediately.
