A lot of estate agents still don’t do the basics and still only rely on business from Zoopla and Rightmove, ask yourself if Zoopla and Rightmove only decided to work with the big three were would your business be?

Think of your website as your shopfront, your online digital presence. A website not only needs to impress but also provide the right information. Websites these days look to be too flashy and forget the point of a website is to attract business.

For startup estate agents you can create simple WordPress sites which are an effective option . A basic site will do wonders, but as you grow so does your website to portray your image. Bear in mind that real estate marketing is digital and so many customers will want to see a website after hearing about you.

Take plenty of business cards, be willing to listen to others but also present yourself and create rapport. The more somebody remembers you, the more they will likely be to refer your services to family and friends.

5. Social Media Marketing

Vendors and Landlords are smothered with choices for Estate Agents and usually will do their research before choosing one to work with. Representation on Social Media sites can improve your reputation by adding testimonials and news feeds on the housing markets.

Although you may not get enquiries directly from the social media sites, you can be assured that clients will have looked through them before contacting you and the image portrayed in your social media will have a big impact on your business.

Please be aware that an inactive social media presence is as bad as no social media presence and so we advise to keep your profiles updated with facts or useful information for potential clients.
