Advertise Locally

When it boils down to it, marketing real estate properties is and should be local. Signing up for Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaigns such as AdWords by Google is recommended. Through these online bandit signs, you can advertise instantly for a minimal fee. Furthermore, these advertisements are targeted toward the exact people whom you want to find you, based on their inputted keywords. So if you’re doing a business in the state of Ohio, and someone searches for “real estate investor Ohio”, they’re bound to find you.

Conduct Search Engine Optimization

In a recent survey by a group of realtors, it was discovered that more than three quarters of the people looking for homes conduct their research online before they go out with their realtors to check out the homes. Unless you can afford to keep shelling out the money for PPC campaigns, chances are you’ll eventually need to have prospective clients find you naturally and for free on the search engines when they type keywords that are related to your niche. That is why search engine optimization (SEO) works. By optimizing your website for big search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN, you have a higher chance of landing in the first page of their results when people search for a home. SEO can be done both on-page (e.g., through concise keyword research) and off-page (e.g., by establishing back links to your site from other websites).

Customize Landing Pages To Directly Address The Needs Of Clients
