How to Build Your Real Estate Reputation on Social Media
Real estate has always been a relationship-driven business. Agents rely on their personal brand and local reputation to generate leads and drive deals. However, the rise of social media has changed how people view professionals in this industry. Homeowners now research potential contacts before reaching out. As a result, agents must adapt their strategy to build a positive online presence that drives real opportunities.
So let’s dive into why your social media reputation is important, how to build your reputation, and some game-changing tools to help.
Why is Having a Reputation on Social Media Important?
Brand perception is the mental picture that customers form in their minds when they think about a real estate business or agent. This image determines whether homeowners will list with you, how much they’re willing to pay, and whether they’ll recommend you to others. Here are two key reasons why your social media reputation is important:
- Homeowners trust online reviews and comments as much as they trust personal recommendations. For agents, this means building a strong reputation as the local real estate expert on social media can have a significant impact on your business.
- Building an online reputation helps attract new clients, but can also make a big difference when it comes to retaining past clients. If you have an online presence, you’ll stay top of mind with your database and they are more likely to transact with you again.
How to Build Your Reputation & Online Presence
The best way to build your reputation on social media is to create valuable content that will position you as the local real estate expert. Followers and homeowners will use your posts to recall your image and reputation, so it’s important that your content is valuable and compelling—while remaining authentic and genuine.
To start, make sure you post consistently. One-off posts every once in a while won’t get you the results you want from social media. If you aren’t sure what to post, check out this blog for some content ideas. By sharing high-quality content consistently, you can demonstrate your expertise and build trust among potential clients.
You also will need to respond to comments and engage with other people in the community. Simply liking, commenting, and sending messages can help boost your personal brand and develop new business opportunities.
