Use Social Media to Promote Your Listings

If you’re not participating in social media yet, you should. It’s where everyone is – including your potential clients and other real estate professionals. Needless to say, you should be part of social media too!

Social media works very well for real estate marketing, because it’s natural. You join a social network such as, say, Twitter, and you start posting useful information and following relevant people.

Social media works very well for real estate marketing, because it’s natural. You join a social network such as, say, Twitter, and you start posting useful information and following relevant people.

In just a few months, you can build yourself an impressive network of online friends, who are very loyal to you, because they have come to see you as a good source of relevant, reliable real estate information.

But where is the connection between social networking and your ListingDomains single property website? Simple. Each of our property websites comes with a built-in posting tool that enables you to quickly and effortlessly add your website to your favorite social network.

So, for example, if you’ve been active on Facebook and have a couple hundred friends there, you can post each single property website to your Facebook profile to let people know about it. Now they can spread the word around about your new listing.

But it gets even better – our social networking tool allows your website visitors to also add your website to their own social networks, spreading the word even further. The potential is unlimited, and you can reach a far larger market than you have ever anticipated.

Get more REOs

A single property website can generate a lot of traffic and give your REO listings more exposure than traditional methods of marketing real estate. In fact, it will continue to provide great value even if the property sells in just a few days: don’t forget that your sign rider showcasing the property – and you- will hang from the “for sale” sign until the property closes escrow.

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that REOs are very hot at the moment. As savvy buyers and investors are actively looking for great real estate deals, bank owned properties are practically flying off the shelf with multiple offers.

If you’re an agent trying to break into the lucrative REO market, or even if you are already selling REO properties, building a single property website to showcase each distressed home for sale is a great way to market the property.

Better yet, showcasing each foreclosure property with a unique website enables you to market YOURSELF as a savvy agent who knows how to use the power of the Internet to market properties online. This attracts bank asset managers, because it tells them that you are an Internet savvy real estate professional, who knows how to market real estate using the latest tools.

Even after close of escrow, the single property website will prove useful and attract even more traffic, since the new buyer will send their family and friends to your property website to view their new home.

ListingDomains, the original and leading property website provider, has just launched several new property website templates, designed specifically for distressed properties.

Driving more traffic with Single Property Websites

Single property websites are a wonderful listing tool that more and more real estate agents and brokers are using. They have very good reasons for doing so: creating a single-property website for each of your listings can help you drive significantly more traffic than using traditional tools.

Traditional vs. Modern Real Estate Marketing Tools

ListingDomains websites drive more traffic to your listings than traditional marketing tools such as virtual tours and online classified flyers, because those rely completely on other websites for generating traffic.

When you use traditional methods, you don’t get the benefits of word of mouth advertising, and you don’t get sign rider or search engine traffic.

Creating a property address domain name, coupled with the custom sign rider, is a far better real-estate marketing strategy, which can make a huge difference in the amount of traffic each listing receives.

SEO Benefits

There are significant SEO benefits to creating a single property website. First of all, having the address as the domain name means it will likely be listed very high in search engine page results. So, when someone enters “555 Main Street, Santa Rosa” in the Google search box, your 555MainStreet.com website will likely be the first result listed.

In addition, all of your single property websites link to each other and back to your own website. This can help each property website gain authority and page rank and become more visible in search engine page results. This can also enhance your own website’s search engine rankings, since there are many websites linking to it.

Social Media Benefits

You don’t just get SEO benefits when creating single property websites. You also get social networking exposure. Each single property website includes a built-in posting tool that enables you, or visitors to your website, to quickly post the listing to popular social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. Another convenient tool allows you to post the listing to the incredibly popular Craigslist.

Syndication

When you create a single property website using listingdomains.com, we syndicate your listings to all the major real estate portals, including Trulia, Vast, Google Base, Zillow, Oodle, and Yahoo Real Estate. This can help drive even more traffic to your website, and insure that your listings are advertised to a world-wide audience.

Our software is easy to use and user friendly. Creating a website usually takes less than five minutes! Visit ListingDomains today to start creating your own single property websites and increase traffic to your listings.
