The real estate sector is a tough market to be in. But it also provides for a more than decent living. In order to be successful in this profession, a real estate agent needs to have a vast network of people that can market and refer potential clients. A study found that 75 percent of a real estate agent’s business comes from referrals and word of mouth. With that in mind, here are some of the basic real estate marketing tips to get ahead of the game.
1. Be responsive
If you want to increase the reach of your network, you have to be responsive and mobile. And by mobile, I mean being able to communicate and post to your social networks on the go. Availability should be one of your strongest points. Making yourself easy to contact helps clients hire you easier.

Add social sharing to property pages
Homebuyers today are eager to share their top housing options to family and friends. Make it easy for buyers to share your photos to emails and social media sites by adding share buttons.
Create an irresistible content offer
Regularly put out content that will capture leads. Potential homebuyers, especially first timers, won’t just go ahead and purchase a house. Many of them will hit Google with queries like “What to look for when buying a new house” or “Most valuable features of a new home.” Make sure to write content that answer these questions. There’s a big chance they will land on your page.
