The 80:20 Social Media Rule for Real Estate Agents

It can be a struggle to find the right balance when posting on your social media pages.  If you often find you’re leaving posting to the last minute or just not adding to your page for weeks at a time, because you don’t know what to post, there’s a good rule of thumb you can use to help. Stick to the 80:20 ratio when planning your social schedule. 80% of your posts should be relevant educational or entertaining content, designed to build a relationship with your audience. Only 20% should be sales or service posts used to promote you. Nobody wants to be constantly sold to when they follow you on social media so striking this balance will keep people engaged.

How Much is Your Real Estate Database Actually Worth?

Do you know how much your real estate database is actually worth? If you’ve never asked yourself this question, you’re not alone. For most Agents, searching for new properties to list is often a time consuming and sometimes frustrating experience. Maybe you’ve poured some money into advertising and had minimal ROI.

How to Choose Content for Real Estate Emails

Choosing newsletter content that resonates with your subscribers and achieves results can feel a bit like guesswork.  If you break it down into these three steps you’ll find it’s much simpler than you might at first think. Real Estate emails to clients don’t need to be boring. With these tips, you’ll increase subscriber engagement and stay front of mind.   1. Know your area, your community and your content Understanding the predominant needs and wants of your database will ensure that you choose relevant content for them. It’s simple, if you sell property in an inner city area that’s popular with young professionals, your articles should be tailored to that group of people.

Three content tips to add to your Real Estate Marketing Strategy.

Last year, my excitement to see Facebook’s latest update was quickly interrupted when I saw two sneaky ads embedded in my chat list. Camouflaged to look like a recent conversation, my digital marketing brain rejoiced at clever ad placement while my consumer mind revolted at the intrusion of yet another intimate space. My inner consumer won the battle and saw me blocking a Facebook ad for the very first time. It got me thinking. How many others were doing the same and what did this mean for the real estate industry? According to eMarketer one in four US internet users say they block ads. While Medium ranked Content Marketing as one of the top 5 trends to combat Adblock. This comes as no surprise as content marketing is about providing […]

Impress your database with stunning emails

When it comes to designing emails, there’s more to consider than just the style of font you use or colours you choose.

5 ways to stay warm during a cooling market

While bleak market forecasts continue to shower down in abundance, not all is dark and dreary for the Australian real estate agent.

So, what does that strategy look like? Well, to keep it simple, let’s […]
