MARKETING FOR REAL ESTATE AGENTS
When marketing for Real Estate Agents, SMART Copy for real estate agents websites informs and educates, showcases your expertise and professionalism and persuades prospects that you can help them.
When Marketing for Real Estate Agents, SMART SEO Copy will take your real estate website to the next level
When it comes to marketing for real estate agents, real estate agent websites are often either cookie-cutter “professional” e.i “dry and boring”, or a bit over the top with outlandish promises of quick sales.
The copy matters when marketing for real estate agents, meaning the actual words, on your website and other marketing material. See below how to use your copy to really connect with prospective clients:
Your copy should establish your expertise to create trust
Your copy should establish your credentials, areas of practice and specialties, the breadth of your expertise on your local market, your skills and your experience.
Copy helps them connect to YOU, the real estate agent, and the person
People hire people. It is through your words that readers discover your work philosophy, your personal or company values, and what it might be like working with you, in short, your brand.
Your copy must tell them why they want to work with you
Make sure also that your work philosophy and approach are centered on your clients. Remember, it’s not about what you can do, it’s about what you can do for them. How do you help them find the best home, at the best possible price? How do you help smooth the process?
Writing seductive listing copy
Your listings are essentially your products. Seductive listing copy should tap into the emotional aspirations of potential buyers. It’s not about the house or commercial space, it’s about what a home or business represents for them: family, success, financial independence, security, status, etc.
Success stories can a very powerful marketing tool for real estate agents
Success stories act as compelling third party endorsements. You can gently request a photo of your clients in front of their new digs and ask them to fill out a short questionnaire: What were they looking for? How was the experience working with you? What did they find most helpful? What does the new home/office mean for them? With those four questions, you have the makings of a powerful and compelling success story.
Why should I hire you?
Your client -centered website and marketing materials all need to answer that question in 30 seconds or less, clearly, consistently, effectively.
Here are a few questions to get you started on your brand strategy:
What do you do?
Why do you do what you do?
What makes you good at what you do?
What are your values?
Why should people want to work with you and not with your competitors?
What is the single core promise that defines your brand? (otherwise known as your tagline)
