More than just getting business transactions done, your role as a real estate agent is about helping clients sell or buy a property by educating them in the process, and working diligently with them before negotiating a mutually-beneficial contract.
The thing is, when you work for the best interest of your clients, you gain a reputation of respect and integrity in the course of your business relationships. Happy clients are also more likely to refer you if they remember you as someone who helped them smoothen out a daunting process and was concerned with their long-term fulfillment. That said, there are always new ways on how to market yourself through personal stories that you can apply to both your online and offline marketing efforts.
Here are some ways on how you can revamp your real estate business through story-based marketing.
Showcase your personality.
Whether online or offline, it is essential for your real estate business to prove its identity amidst countless competition. A visit to your real estate website
is often one of the first things potential clients will use to touch base with you. Add some pizzazz to your agent website by linking it with your real estate blog
. Since blogs have more â€˜human factorâ€™ content than a serious marketing copy, itâ€™s best to use it to your advantage and show people your strengths as a person. To get a look thatâ€™s professional but and user-friendly try getting a WordPress blog.Tell, donâ€™t hard sell.
Leave the aggressive marketing to your advertisements. On your blog, write about the personal side of real estate. Share positive encounters with past clients. Write about that time you successfully worked out a seemingly impossible negotiation, or share bloopers of past video tours
. People are genuinely curious about what drives your company, so you can also write about your personal insights on the business and your goals in the real estate industry.Showcase your testimonials.

If youâ€™re stumped about what you can possibly share with your readers, donâ€™t sweat it. Sit down and take a moment to think of all your experiences in the fieldâ€”both good and bad.
