As a real estate agent, your lifeblood is in every closed sale you make. Marketing yourself and your listing is an important aspect of your job. The numbers of sales you close depend on how much effort and time you will devote to advertising, prospecting and closing a sale.
As a beginner in the industry, here are 10 marketing tips that you can use to get you started:
Online Business Pages
Many studies confirm that the internet is the best avenue for marketing products and services. For this reason, it is necessary that you create business pages in all leading real estate search engines including Yelp, Zillow, Google +, etc. Don’t forget to create a business profile on major social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
While using the social is a great help, creating your own website can really give you an edge to convince buyers that you are the person who can help them with their real Hawaii homes for sale. A website will serve as their portal to know more about the services that you provide, as well as your expertise and career history. At the same time, it serves as lead captures where visitors can give you contact or give you their contact detail for you to connect with them.
Even with the upgrades in online communication, sending emails remains to be a very effective communication tool to link with potential clients. At present, 75% of realtors are still using emails, according to the National Association of Realtors. Once you get the prospect’s email address through your website, enter them diligently on your email contact list. Use their email address to search for them on Facebook, Twitter, and Linked. Use email to send newsletter, update, and listings with photos to your contacts.
If you have a good relationship established with your past clients, you can ask them to refer your service to people they know. Your friends and family are also good sources of referrals too. On the other hand, it’s a great idea to keep a connection with other professionals including bankers, lawyers, and businessmen. You can ask them to refer their clients to you or just ask them to give you leads.
You want to maintain an image that you are an authority in your field. You can publish blogs on a regular basis to update your clients about important news or events in the real estate sector; give tips about home ownership, home repair, home decorations; and publish your priority listing with pictures and great descriptions.
