With the massive presence of blogs of all kinds, one of the main concerns of many real estate agencies including Tajarat properties is to find the right topics for new articles. We are saturated with information of all kinds by a multitude of media, so offering quality content is essential to achieve the objectives we have for our real estate website.
Logically the ultimate goal is to generate more contacts, more sales and obtain more benefits, but the specific objectives of the real estate blog are multiple, and for this it is crucial to create the appropriate content. Let’s see how to find great ideas for our blog and real estate website, what you need to take into account before starting to write.
THE OBJECTIVES OF YOUR REAL ESTATE BLOG.
The first step before creating a real estate blog is to have an idea or general strategy of the objectives that we are pursuing with it.
Unlike a personal blog, in our real estate agency we do not create a real estate blog to enjoy writing or show the last trips we have made. The main objective is usually located between the following:
ATTRACT POTENTIAL CLIENTS OF YOUR REAL ESTATE SERVICES.
The main objective of a real estate website is to grow our operations, and for this we must attract interested parties and convert them into clients. For this we have a series of specific sub-objectives of the blog, which are mainly focused on the following:
Increase the positioning of your real estate website, improve the authority of your website and thus appear in the top positions in search engines. The dream of any real estate agency: Appear number one in google and receive calls and interested parties every day. This is something that your real estate blog will undoubtedly contribute to.
Build trust, show how you work and generate good feelings in blog readers (and potential clients). Trust is the key so that someone who does not know you at all decides to contact you and ask for more information on how you can help him.
Be a reference within the real estate sector in your area. Being positioned as the best professionals in your town or city implies showing a professional and worked image.
And above all, encourage visitors to your real estate website to get in touch with you: by calling, by email or by using the form you have on the home page. At the end of the day, that they contact you and request your real estate services.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF EACH ARTICLE?
Based on this general strategy, each article will contribute to one or more of these goals. A unique must be created for a specific purpose and if it helps a perfect secondary. They will generally obey the following:
HELP READERS TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS.
If I am looking for a commercial space for my company and at that moment I read a great article by someone from authority in my city explaining what we should look for when looking for a property of this type and a series of tips to make the best possible decision.
It will help that person to achieve his goal: to find a space for his company. The best part is that if during the process he needs professional help he will remember you since you have gotten a reference for him.
INFORM OR ENTERTAIN.
Not all the articles on your real estate website have to be purely formal. They shouldn’t all be a joke either, but a respite from time to time is always appreciated.
Every time something relevant related to the real estate sector is published, it must be present on your blog: price statistics, real estate legislation, sentences that affect us, etc.
On the other hand, a touch of humor from time to time is great. How? For example with an article like: “The worst photos of your real estate ad”, full of photos of those that we see every day that seem taken by the owner’s enemy.
INCREASE YOUR NETWORK AND AUDIENCE.
The key to reaching more people is to generate content that can be easily shared, and that inspires us to do so. This will help us increase the audience received and the authority of our real estate website.
What floors to share besides videos of kittens and babies laughing? Post content related to the real estate sector (or some that has nothing to do with a more personal touch) and motivate all your contacts or followers to share it.
INCREASE THE CONFIDENCE AND PRESENCE OF YOUR BRAND.
Many articles will not pursue any specific objective of the previous ones, a priori. Show your personal history, new agents, sales or the most special cases and the way in which you help people in your area, the number of sales you have achieved this month … all this will generate trust, credibility and increase your presence.
