how to get new real estate leads

It’s a busy time for real estate agents—which means you don’t always have the time that you’d like to dedicate to marketing efforts. Today, let’s explore an often-overlooked tactic for marketing your business that can help you bring in leads now, and can keep helping you bring in leads when the market slows down, too: 

Digital ads. 

Why digital ads are great for bringing in real estate leads 

They’re always on. 

Traditional marketing methods often mean you have to be actively doing the tactics—which limits you in how much you can reach people. Digital ads, on the other hand, are what’s considered passive marketing; you can let them run full time without doing a ton of work yourself. 

Online ads can reach people you otherwise couldn’t.

Most marketing tactics rely on consumers coming to you in some form before you can communicate with them. After all, you can’t exactly email someone if they don’t give you their email address, right? 

Ads, on the other hand, are designed specifically to reach people that you haven’t found yet by appearing on popular sites—they don’t necessarily need to know anything about a consumer to show up. 

Digital advertisements keep working while you’re off the clock

We love digital ads because they don’t give up. When you send out a handwritten note through the mail to potential clients, that’s it. That effort is done, and if you want to reach them again, you have to do it again. 

Ads, on the other hand, don’t stop after they’ve reached a consumer once. They’ll show up consistently on popular sites to keep your message in front of potential clients, and can even follow consumers across different sites so you’re always there when they’re ready.

Use the right message for your digital ads. 

In digital advertising, you don’t have a ton of space to work with—so the words and images you use need to count. It’s important to structure your headline, description, body text, and call-to-action with the right details to entice your readers into clicking. Focus on which points best fit your goal, and keep it simple!
