Real estate marketing is changing rapidly. And sadly, you aren’t going to like a lot of these changes(especially real estate buyers’ decisions).
I don’t mean change from a purchase decision standpoint.
You already know that you get a bunch of buyer leads already.
But, the critical standpoint is that real estate marketing is becoming more competitive and extremely expensive.
And that’s right.
Just take a look at the statistics below: That’s eystone recent data.
- As you can see, an average real estate company spent 40% of its annual budget on an advertisement.
- Only 2% of real estate companies see the return on investment of their targeted goal.
Should we say one of the big reasons that we are seeing real estate marketing change so much is because of real estate buyers’ decisions?
To better understand why.

Use content marketing to game buyer’s purchase intent
Well, I’m starting with this one because I know you are going to hate this.
…Real estate intent is moving to content marketing.
Our recent data analysis proves this.
- Only real estate brands or agents that use emotional words get loved. And they’re only 3% of them.
One of the best ways to use content marketing that your target customers would subscribe for.
…Is when you game their buying intent.
How did you convert people when things didn’t go as you assume?
…Why do you think brands like Apple, Microsoft, Nike are innovative.
…I mean years after years they are becoming even more relevant.
And think about it.
…They are just computer and shoe companies
…Why are they different?
A better way, what do they do differently?
Here’s an example:
You may be wondering why do I have to tell you this.
Have you heard about the Golden circle?
Probably you might think what could this possibly means.
It’s simple…It means
- Why stage
- How stage
- What stage
And you can possibly learn something useful from Apple’s marketing strategy.
According to the short form analysis, put together:
Apple consistently uses Golden Circle marketing correctly. They begin with WHY, then figure out HOW they’ll achieve their vision and WHAT they need to create to get there.
This is clear in Apple’s marketing. Think about how strange it would sound if Apple took the typical WHAT to HOW to WHY marketing approach. It might sound something like this:
“We make good computers. Our computers are easy to use, elegant, and well designed. You should buy one.”
Now, compare that to the start with the WHY approach that Apple actually uses to inspire customers:
“We think differently. We want to challenge the status quo. The way we do this is by making products that are easy to use, elegant, and well designed. And we just happen to make computers as our products. You should buy one.”
The difference is that Apple’s products are a result of their WHY. This is Golden Circle marketing. Their MacBooks, iPods, and iPhones are just a physical representation of the company’s core beliefs. Therefore, when someone buys an Apple product, they’re not just buying the WHAT: they’re buying the WHY, too.
Put another way, people don’t actually want to buy stuff. They want to buy ideas.
They want to join movements. Putting your WHY first ensures that your ideas, not your product, are what make you.
For example, if you run a real estate company, you actually know WHAT you do.
This also implies to every organization out there.
But, some organization knows HOW they do it.
Whether you’re talking about value proposition or unique selling points.
And if you think of it.
- Only 2% of real estate brands or agency knows why they do it.
Here are more interesting things that Short form said,
In Golden Circle marketing, the WHY leads to the HOW and the WHAT:
- The WHY stage: This is the vision of your company. It’s the motivation behind your service or product. It’s the mission that you stand for.
- The HOW stage: The HOW are the practical steps you need to take to achieve your WHY. The HOW is the practical, operational knowledge that brings the vision to life.
- The WHAT stage: The WHAT is the product or service you’re selling. It’s the tangible part of your company, and it’s also the easiest to identify.
- Your goal
- Your experience
…Why do you want real estate buyers to care for what you do?
But, for the inspired organization and leaders, communicate to the audience from the WHY circle(turning customers into fans).
Take the apple phone launch,
According to Cnbc,
Research has shown that when you think an item is scarce, it heightens your arousal and makes you feel panicked to make a decision quickly. The perception of scarcity makes you less discerning and more likely to go with your favorite item, rather than research other options.
“That just makes you want to click ‘buy,’ makes you want to get the line, and makes you not want to miss the boat,” she says.
“Consumers respond, almost too strong, to these scarcity marketing tactics,” says Goldsmith.
…I think if apple was every other brand out there.
Maybe their marketing message must have sucked.
Communicate context(value and benefits), not just content(words)
This technique makes great marketing for real estate buyers because they come straight to their purchase intent.
(That means you know exactly what they’re looking for).
Plus, how they may see it as a possible solution.
Here’s what the medium said about the difference between content and context.
To answer that question it is simple: both are important.
But before I get into it, let’s understand the difference between content and context.
Content is the material/matter/medium contained within the work that’s available for the audience.
Context is the positioning of the content, storyline, or purpose that provides value to the audience.
Content can come in several forms: audio, video, written, and visual (photo).
But, although you have these forms, why are you creating the content? What exactly is the purpose? What sort of outcome are you looking for? With each content piece, there needs to be context.
Content isn’t a king without context.
So even though they may not buy straight away, it’s much easier to create an impression.
If you want to come up with a more interesting context on how consumers pretty interact with the real estate business.
You can use adpresso.
Take the following examples as inspirations.
Do SEO to get qualified free leads(real estate buyers)
Okay, if you’re new in the world of SEO, check out this article. I want the article
Everything you need to know is already detailed in that article.
Now it’s time to rank your properties in the search results so that it gets in front of real estate buyers.
If you already have a WordPress website
To get started, just type the plugin called ‘Yoast SEO’ in the search space.
…Install and then activate the plugin.
After doing that, you’ll want to optimize for consumers and search engines.
First, do your On-page SEO.
To start with:
You’ve to create super high-quality content.
When it comes to doing SEO that generates quality real estate buyers.
You’ve got two options:
- #1 – you can create a schema for your real estate website landing page
- #2 – you can create content that’s better and unique
…You’ll want to create something even unique and different than what is out there.
But, in most cases, you’re better off with content that’s completely unique and super helpful.
Because it helps your content stand out.
A while ago I sat down to write a piece of content optimized around “land measurement”
And I noticed that investors and developers are literally searching for this keyword.
I could have created a bigger how-to post: how to measure your land precisely.
Instead, I decided to do something totally different.
Specifically, I published an ultimate question guide on land measurement.
And because Google sees that this content is totally different and super helpful…It got a ton of keywords that are ranking for.
…Within a week plus
…over 600 keywords.
And still counting.
And most important of all, I created a FAQ schema for it.
So, if you can create something that’s simply better than what’s already ranking on the first page of Google.
When Google noticed that… You get some votes, it means higher rankings and more qualified leads.
Or you can get it done the other way.
Integrate schema for real estate for higher visibility
You might ask what this all has to do with attracting real estate buyers.
A recent Eystone study found that 0.8% of real estate companies and agents use schema for better rich results in the SERP.
And that’s way too low.
So, how can you do better?
According to Milestoneinternet, Schemas have structured microdata that allows your web content to be better understood by search engines. Adding schemas to your web content allows search engines to create an enhanced description of your business and content in search results. The enhanced description is most often referred to as a “rich snippet” and it helps to create a richer experience for consumers in search results.
…This aids higher visibility for your real estate business.
Here’s how it looks:

This is the one that eystone implemented below:
- For local business and reviews
Here’s what it looks like:
This is a great way to put your real estate business uniquely in front of real estate buyers.
