Live chat apps are literally popping up everywhere. In this week’s real estate agent marketing tips, we’ll take a look at this talked about tech, and whether or not it might be right for your business.
Put a Bug in Your Ear
You spend countless hours driving traffic to your real estate agent website. But in your business, and with today’s instant-access lifestyle, it’s easy for first-time visitors to feel ignored. Let’s face it, as much as it would be great for initial client contact to be one-on-one with you, the nature of the realty business makes a prompt, live response tough to tackle.
Live chat apps can be a boon, stepping in to offer real-time answers to potential clients. Doubly-effective, this virtual back-and-forth can also lead to follow-up conversations, providing valuable client insight.
Live chat apps are highly effective in real estate agent marketing. Despite the industry’s typical lag-time in response to tech, agents and brokerages are jumping aboard due to the bountiful benefits:
– Increased Opportunity
Brokerages leveraging live chat apps see a 36% increase in leads, on average – more than lead sources from prominent listing portals and website contact forms.
– Quality Leads
For each lead garnered through chat services, about 49% are sufficient to qualify for agent follow-up.
– Higher Conversions
REAL Trends points to a conversion rate of 7.5% with live chat – 3 times the average for general online leads, at 2.7%. Triggered properly, these rates could increase as much as 11%.
Are You Leaving Potential Clients Wandering in a Virtual Desert?
