Do you want to make social media marketing part of the way you promote real estate? This is a great decision. Modern social media platforms give you access to huge audiences, great audience targeting, and a collection of promotion tools, some of which are often free.
Social media marketing is a form of marketing that uses social media networks to promote brands, products, and services. You can take advantage of each network’s reach by using content-based strategies, or you can buy ads that get served directly to their users.
Getting started on social media isn’t difficult. If you want to collect leads for your real estate investment properties, you should begin by doing all of the following:
If you want your social media marketing to be effective, you should be visible on multiple platforms. Doing this will allow you to find out where your brand and style of content perform the best. It will also allow you to pivot more easily if your market demographic begins to avoid a certain platform.
The following platforms are some of the most widely used for social media marketing campaigns:
Registration is free in all cases, and you can create a business account to unlock some special features or tools that aren’t provided to general users.
These platforms will make for a good foundation. However, you’ll also want to stay up to date with new platforms as they increase or decrease in popularity.
Social media marketing strategies may focus on either content or ads. Even if you’re running ads, you’re usually going to want users who land on your profile to read a few things or subscribe. Good content is what makes this kind of attachment possible.
It’s difficult to say what kind of content will succeed. Property investors have built audiences on social media by creating content like the following:
Helpful content like this can indirectly assure readers of a brand’s authenticity, expertise, or experience. Try your own posts to find out what gets the best response.
Building an audience is one of the hardest parts of advertising on social media. It takes a lot of investment to attract followers and then to keep the ones you have. Creating shareable content is the first step. Once followers start showing up, you need to interact with them.
There are several ways you can make sure that your followers feel seen.
All of these actions help to show followers that they will be rewarded for investing their time and attention in your page. It could help you stand out in those crucial seconds before they decide whether or not to subscribe.
Testing is a great way to learn how to create good content for social media marketing. However, if you want to start grappling with the potential of each network more quickly, you can do so by joining groups.
Groups exist in some form or another on nearly all social networks. They are places where people gather to discuss specific topics—hobbies, fandoms, bands, and other interests.
The groups provide some of the best opportunities for you to learn the ropes of reaching out to an audience. Join the largest groups that are relevant to your topic and the ones that have the most users in your preferred target market. Look at the content that they’re using to drive hundreds or even thousands of engagements.
Most social media networks will allow you to advertise directly to their users. The Facebook family of social networks (including Instagram and LinkedIn) are particularly well-known for the quality of their ad platforms.
These ad networks allow you to narrow your targeting down to some of the most precise and accurate factors. You can choose your target users based on geo-location, age, income, reported interests, and other factors on most networks.
Income targeting is especially valuable to real estate investors. Your advertising dollars are wasted when they’re spent targeting people who can’t afford or wouldn’t be interested in your property.
Social media is an excellent place to promote your property investment business. You can use messaging to build an audience to target with your content, or you can take advantage of the massive and well-defined ad programs.
It’s easy to get started. Just remember to start by creating profiles on all the major ad platforms. Once you’ve done that, post content regularly so that you can find out what works.
If you attract an audience, make sure that you engage them directly. You can build an audience a lot more easily if you join groups and follow how they develop successful content. Make sure you know what the ad features can do if you really need to target specific audiences.
