Our team comprising a group of talented copywriters, designers, developers, search experts and data analysts will take ownership of your digital marketing.
Estate agent firms need to be able to engage with a wide audience and social media is a great way to do this.
But social media needs to be diverse in order to build a strong presence on the relevant platforms. The wrong tone of content can appear gimmicky and annoying, whilst the wrong frequency of content can lead to your audience just switching off completely.
The Boss Digital social media strategy is designed specifically to help you maximise your reach and engagement for social media. Our specialist staff will help you select the best platforms for your estate agents to feature on and suggest and create quality visuals and sharp written copy to help your audience connect with your brand’s personality. This strategy is perfect for creating brand credibility and helping steer people towards your services.
Facebook – Despite the network entering a maturity stage as growth begins to slow down, it still attracts millions of users and is popular because of the broad range of content available on the platform. Facebook’s advertising platform is also the most sophisticated, leaving you free to target the audiences that you think are most likely to need your estate agent services in the near future.
Instagram – As so many property decisions are made on the visual appearance of houses, a good Instagram account is so important. Sharing relevant content about what to look for when buying properties or just showcasing eye-catching local photos, it’s a great option for estate agents.
Twitter – Twitter is great for direct engagement both with your audience and the wider media. By taking part in wider discussions, you can raise your brand’s credibility and visibility worldwide, whilst giving ample opportunity to provide the best possible customer service by being able to instantly respond to customer enquiries, complaints or questions.
Although some estate agents might cringe at the idea of having an ‘influencer’ related to their brand (after all, it’s hard to find someone with such a specific passion for real estate who doesn’t already work in it!) and reject the notion, the modern influencer can be a very different idea. Having an evangelist who can explain the benefits of doing your own home, a DIY expert who can help you transform a living room or something else quirky can add massive value for your brand. Equally, you can look at creating an online community full of like-minded people ready to engage with your staff and discuss relevant topics and ideas. Boss’s social media for estate agents can include influencer marketing and we’ll be happy to sit down and discuss this with you.
Estate agents always measure everything in pounds and pence and with tight profit margins, it’s now more important than ever for estate agents to be able to prove their return on investment is sound. Previously social media for estate agents had been unable to justify huge outlays due to the inability to attribute revenue to this, but we work with companies to ensure that they can understand the value they are taking from their social media activity.
For estate agents, it’s important to be able to track customer journeys and pinpoint when customers become likely to convert, or drop off completely. Our social media services for estate agents include full conversion tracking to help you analyse what content is resonating with your audiences so you can plan your future posts accordingly for maximum engagement.
Frequently Asked Questions about Social Media for Estate Agents
Absolutely. While social media platforms might not always lead to direct sales, they play a critical role in raising brand awareness, promoting listings, and attracting potential buyers or renters. By providing valuable and engaging content, you can create interest, generate leads, and nurture these leads into potential customers.
The type of content you should post largely depends on the platform and your target audience. Facebook is great for sharing detailed property listings, market insights, and community news. Instagram, with its visual focus, is perfect for showcasing high-quality photos of properties, behind-the-scenes content, and neighbourhood highlights. Twitter can be used for industry news updates, quick tips, and direct engagement with clients or potential customers.
Social media platforms allow you to monitor what’s being said about your brand in real time. You can respond quickly to any negative comments or reviews, demonstrating that you value customer feedback and are committed to resolving issues. You can also proactively build a positive reputation by sharing customer testimonials, positive news, and informative content that provides value to your followers.
Paid advertising can be a great supplement to organic social media efforts. Platforms like Facebook and Instagram offer sophisticated targeting options, allowing you to reach specific demographics and areas, which can be especially useful for estate agents.
Key metrics to consider include engagement rate (likes, comments, shares), follower growth, website traffic from social media, and lead generation or conversions from social media campaigns. Tools like Facebook Analytics or Google Analytics can provide these insights.
