Online Marketing Tips For Real Estate Agents

The real estate industry has changed over the years and the majority of transactions are completed because people find what they are looking for online. Here are some of the best tips we could find to help you create eye-catching listings and how to market them to the right people.

Top 4 Online marketing tips for real estate agents

Photography: This tip is the first because it is one of the most important. If a potential buyer can't see photos of the house when he is checking out your listing, there is a high probability that he will move on to the next listing. Plain photos can have the same effect. Photos should clearly show all interior rooms of the house, the exterior of the house and the yard. Photos of basements and attics can be skipped unless they appear to be aesthetically pleasing to potential buyers. Photos need to be of the highest quality possible and there are programs such as Adobe Photoshop that can really bring out vibrant colors and detail to help make your listing the standout listing you need.

Websites and Forums: there are many forums and websites where you can submit your listings. The more you submit your listings to, the better chance they will have of being seen. Make sure you use tags if possible, so potential buyers searching for homes in the area where the home is located will have a better chance of finding your listing.

USPS Every Door Direct Mail: Okay so this one doesn't pertain to online marketing, but I feel the need to throw it in here. By utilizing this service, listings can be mailed to every home within a specific area or zip code. This is a good way to get your listing out to everyone local to the area where the home is located.

Social Media: Facebook and Twitter are two of the premier social media marketing services. By building an online Facebook group, keeping up with real estate groups through Twitter, and sending your listing out to hundreds or thousands of potential buyers, social media can be one of the most powerful marketing tools in the world.
