Humans are drawn to free solutions. So, you can take advantage of this by offering free material on real estate, guidelines or training that people can benefit from. Identify your ideal client’s needs and create a worthy solution for them. When they provide their emails for the free “bait”, then you can gradually infiltrate their mailboxes with juicy real estate deals.

Niche down

This works for any other business. You must move from a red ocean (broad market) to a blue ocean (target market). Even in Facebook advertising, for instance, you will agree that a more targeted ad campaign reaches more prospects and converts more leads. You can niche down to providing affordable homes, luxury homes, homes in Lagos, Abuja, rental homes, etc. Whatever you decide on, just ensure your niche is down to get a more targeted audience looking to close deals with you.

Engage in video marketing

Sometimes, I find myself watching home tour videos on YouTube. I usually prefer that to a bunch of social media pictures or home description texts. I believe I am not the only one on this table.

Social media is, true, a social gathering. Engage with influencers in your niche. Make comments on posts, like and share too. Engage in reasonable conversations in their comment sections.
