Is your real estate marketing yielding enough good fruits?
I hope you don’t answer no to that. Even if you do, I hope it’s not because you’re a lazy marketer. Many factors affect real estate sales– the state of the economy and its effect on the property market is one.
I’m careful to put a lot of context in these conversations.
But also, it’s not out of the question for your real estate marketing to go stale. We are all prone to a bout of overconfidence when times are booming. And when things slow down, the less-than-excellent real estate marketing will show. Most often, sluggish sales or even dry spells will be evidence enough. Or even the competition may have blown you out of the water with better marketing. No worries. This article will help supercharge your real estate marketing.
Here are three powerful tips to help you do that.
Think long term
The days of short-term, reactionary real estate marketing are running out. These days, to succeed in property marketing, you need to think long-term. Beyond thinking, you must also plan how you’ll play the long game.
That should have been the status quo, given the often long-term nature of real estate. But sometimes, because of slow supply, many real estate companies still enjoy stellar sales with less-than-stellar marketing. Long-term thinking and action will help your real estate marketing in many ways.
For one, it’ll make you study the market and historical trends more closely. And where possible, you can find links to current and future performances of the real estate market.
Also, with a focus on long-term thinking, you can sacrifice short-term tactics for long-term real estate marketing strategies. These longer-term moves like real estate content marketing, customer acquisition, and relationship building will yield many results for your marketing.
These moves will serve as a solid foundation that, over time, will make your property marketing more effective.
Revisit your buyer personas
Human needs and wants keep changing. And the preferences and tastes of your target buyers will not remain the same forever. And as the years go by, you’ll need to revisit your buyer personas. Some customer goals and desires may need updates, while you’ll need to create new ones or replace others.
Many real estate marketers make the mistake of using a one-size-fits-all style of audience grouping for their marketing. And as a real estate marketing company, we’ve noticed many flaws with that system.
If you don’t constantly review your buyer personas, you’ll end up marketing to the wrong audience and enjoy few results. And that’s where the frustrations set in. To revamp your property marketing, you can’t ignore taking a second look at your buyer personas.
Consider using other channels of marketing
Times are changing. And the old way, the intrusive, ad-first approach to marketing real estate doesn’t always cut it. Even if those moves yield some results, they’re not as effective. And you can’t put all your eggs in that basket.
That’s because the avenues for property marketing have increased, and attention has spread to many forms of marketing. You can’t afford to stay behind in the marketing revolution. To refresh how you market your properties, you must consider the many other aspects besides the traditional marketing everyone knows.
These days, social media is a big part of the way we live, and it’s worth considering social media marketing for your real estate business. You can’t be on every social media channel, but look for where your target hangs out and go there too.
When you create your account there, keep the accounts active and share relevant content that will benefit your audience. Staying active on social media will help your marketing immensely.
Digital marketing is another crucial aspect of marketing that will help most real estate companies. And you can’t ignore that in your property marketing.
Email marketing, newsletter marketing, Google Ads, and the many aspects of digital marketing will help you change how you market real estate, giving your superior results over time.
Content marketing is another string you can add to your marketing bow. It will help your property marketing efforts. It involves creating valuable content like blog posts, guides, podcasts, videos, and white papers relevant to your industry (and audience), in this case, real estate.
These regular contents keep the connection between you and your audience warm. It also builds trust for your brand. That warmth would come in handy when it’s time to make a sale.
Even better, with that relationship, you’ll likely be one of the first names they turn to when they have a real estate need.
You can use real estate marketing to remarkable effect
With an effective marketing strategy, you’ll put your real estate business in a great place at all times. Occasionally, these marketing efforts will dip. The effects could spell trouble for your real estate business, namely slower sales. If you feel your real estate marketing strategy hasn’t been up to scratch, these tips can help get you back on track.
If your competitors are up to speed – or better at how they market their properties, it’s not unthinkable for them to capture new leads while you’re stuck. That’s why you need tips to help you supercharge your marketing efforts.
