If you're a savvy real estate agent (or a Social Pro Gold customer), you've already got a website, blog, and social media accounts set up. You've got an online marketing presence, but how do you make yourself stand out from the crowd?
The answer: find your own marketing voice and create your online content accordingly. To find your marketing voice, ask yourself these simple questions: what do I love about real estate, and how do I like to communicate with my clients? Maybe you're passionate about helping first-time homebuyers find their dream home, or you really love knowing the facts and numbers about your local market. Maybe you're down-to-earth and bring some humor to the real estate business, or maybe you pride yourself on being professional at all times. All of these factors translate into your voice.
Take your answers, and start to craft your online content along those lines. If you're all about stats -- the latest change in mortgage rates, or how many homes have sold in your area -- write up a monthly blog post with your views on the real estate trends in your town, or create a Facebook post that links to a supporting article. Levity more your thing? Dash off a funny tweet or record an outside-the-box video about some of the quirky features of a town you serve.
Taking a bit of extra time to personalize your content with your marketing voice is a great way to build your personal brand and stand out from the crowd. Anything you do that goes online has the opportunity to be personalized, whether it's your bio on your website, a blog post, a video, or a social media post. Say what feels natural to you and let your perspective and personality come through. It's that simple.
