As a real estate professional, it’s important that you spend time developing your personal brand. Who you are online carries a great deal of weight these days, considering how social media is driving the business world.
Big Block Realty is California’s leading 100% Commission Brokerage for many reasons, but one of them is that we are committed to our agents’ success.
We believe that success comes when Realtors have the tools and education they need to operate in today’s industry and part of having success as a real estate professional is about using social media.
One social media platform that real estate professionals are beginning to use more and more is Pinterest. Not only is it a way to push web traffic to your site, but it also provides a chance for you to establish your brand identity online.
Below are a few solutions for using Pinterest in real estate. By incorporating these easy tips into your social media strategy for real estate, you can increase your leads and grow your sphere of influence to reach more customers.
1. Promote Your Listings
Pinterest is a visual platform and what better arena for photos of your amazing properties and other listings? By using Pinterest to share photos of new listings, just sold properties and other real estate, you can get your content in front of a wider audience (and it’s free!).
2. Create Content to be Shared
Social media shouldn’t be all about selling. It’s a great way to create content that establishes yourself as a leader in your industry. Share helpful, engaging information on Pinterest so that others can share it with their circles.
When you write blog posts or other content to promote your real estate business, think about how easily digestible it is. Use simple language, bullet points and lists to format content that is likely to be shared.
3. Take Better Photos
Professional photography helps, but even if you take photos with your iPhone, you can spend more time making sure they are great quality.
Photos on Pinterest are more likely to be re-pinned when they are interesting and eye-catching. There are also lots of apps that allow you to add text and titles to your photos.
Photos with text have a greater chance of being shared on Pinterest because they stand out from those without text or titles.
Another way you can improve your photos is by creating tags and captions for them. Use keywords that are likely to be searched.
By following these simple tips, you can use Pinterest to grow your real estate business.
Do you aspire to be a million dollar agent? A career in real estate allows you to leverage your potential in a way that no other industry or field can. If you’d like to learn more about a career with Big Block Realty, we’d love to hear from you!
