Most real estate agents excel at sales and human connection. Sitting down every week to write articles when there are calls to be made might not seem like the best use of your time. Not only are you establishing your expertise through the written word, you are also setting yourself up to enjoy a few benefits that may not be top of mind.
Gain Your Ideal Client’s Trust
Everyone gets the same 24 hours each day. If someone chooses to spend even a minute on your article, make it worth their while. Address pain points and answer questions from your ideal client. Create a profile character to make this easier. For example, let’s use the name Amelia Day and she is in your specific niche. She is a wedding photographer and mother to three college-age daughters. Amelia’s husband is an auto mechanic with seven shops. The Days are looking to downsize their five-bedroom home and move into the country. Ask which niche(s) Amelia would fit into and how your services address her pain points. Then generate content that speaks to her. Some agents make collages for their profile character and others simply type the name on the top of every page like a letter and delete it when editing. Speak to your ideal client through your content in any way you can. Email campaigns, landing pages, clickfunnels and social media platforms will be more powerful as a result.
Recruit Dream Candidates
You may not be thinking of building a team now, but at some point, business may expand further than you thought possible. You want to be able to reach out to qualified candidates right away and get a response. By crafting exceptional content, you are setting the tone for your business and a potential culture focused on attention to detail and understanding the market.
Make Passive Income
We would all love to make money while we sleep. Your blog can generate income through affiliate links. Real estate agents deal with so many areas of lifestyle and home that they can easily write on a wealth of topics. Your latest article on home security can include links to local companies that install alarms, or sell security cameras and fences. Local furniture stores can be a great partner to stage homes and discuss the latest trends. Living Coral chairs or wall art can fit into design articles. If your niche focuses on fixer uppers, interview a local handyman. Make sure to disclose that you will receive money from any affiliate links included in your articles.
