Instagram for Real Estate

More people are using Instagram for their businesses. It is one of the fastest growing social media platforms with over 800 million active users world wide. Businesses will thrive utilizing Instagram with only one post of content per day but why limit your business opportunities there?

To begin an Instagram business account, build your profile. Your profile picture should be your company logo. Your company profile should also include your business name and your “username” should reflect as close as you can to your business name.

The “username” will identify your account. In the Bio section give a brief explanation of service, the business address and a link to the company’s website.

Your company should develop an Instagram social media strategy that is agreed on. Develop the strategy with a “tribe mentality”. Continue reading Instagram for Real Estate

Social Media Lead Generation Basics For Real Estate Agents!

The social media has experienced phenomenal growth over the last decade, making it one of the most powerful tools for lead generation today.

There is a mammoth community of users on networks like Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter. All you have to do is join these platforms and seek out, find, and connect with your band of prospects.

Regrettably, the crowded nature of the social media is also it’s undoing. Now, you have to do more than just posting something on these networks to be able to engage your followers. There are best practices to follow – which are precisely what this guide is about.

Facebook Lead Generation.

This giant network boasts well over 2 billion monthly active users. That’s a huge community of potential customers for your real estate business, which is why it should be top on your list of networks to include in your social media strategy.

Start by creating a business page to start building a fanbase. Once everything checks out, you can begin posting content that you want your followers to engage with. These could be local market updates, selected gossip that may affect the locality, neighborhood news, restaurant reviews and more.

You could use a suitable tool to schedule and publish your Facebook posts automatically to save you some time, but don’t forget to check your page from time to time to respond to comments and user queries.

The form of content to post on Facebook

Articles are great for posting on Facebook. You can always create long articles on popular real estate topics, post them on your website and share snippets of these on your Facebook page with backlinks to your website to drive traffic.

However, real estate is an incredibly visual industry, and people will engage more with videos, images and other visual media than they will with text. Besides, visual content typically gets shared more than twice as much as Facebook posts without pictures. Continue reading Social Media Lead Generation Basics For Real Estate Agents!

I Have A Buyer For Your Home Letter!

If you have clients that want to buy a home take them on a thorough tour and write down the addresses of every home they liked. Then, get the actual names of the owners of the homes. This is very easy. You can go to a list company or look up the tax records online.

The reason you want the real name is because if you have anything other than the actual owners names on the letter it looks like it was spit out by a computer and not a real person.

The more ‘real’ and personalized the letter is the better your chances are of getting a response.

Real Estate Introduction Letter To Friends!

The most difficult part of being a real estate agent is getting new clients, especially when you are just starting out. The challenge of acquiring new clients is one reason there is such a significant turnover rate in the industry.

The good news is that there are numerous methods and techniques that will help you generate prospects over time. Some of them are free, some are low cost, and many are very expensive.

So where do you start? One place you should consider is farming your current network of friends and family. These are the people that know you, trust you, and like you so it is a very logical place to begin your prospecting.  But you don’t want to come off as pushy or entitled.

Send a personalized letter. If you send the same letter out to all your friends and family they are really going to be annoyed because they’ll sniff out what you are trying to do and you’ll tarnish your reputation. I recommend you write one or two personal letters every day and mail them to each and every person you know.

After you send out all your letters then you should put them on your newsletter list and mail a newsletter once a month, or at the very least six times per year.
