Marketing has changed a lot over the past few years and the days of successful outbound marketing (a common tactic for many estate agents) are fading fast. In these modern, online world, if you have a small business like an estate agency, and want to stay relevant and attract new customers, having a user-friendly, responsive site is essential.
Websites are a great way to get in front of a new audience and generate leads with 30% of small businesses that have a website, generating more than 25% of their revenue online.
The people buying homes has now changed as well, 66% of first-time buyers are millennials, people who have grown up with tech and used to searching for answers to their questions online. Chances are if you don’t have an online presence for them to find, you won’t even be on their radar. But it’s not just millennials that are looking online for their new home, 44% of people buying a property in 2016 looked online before searching anywhere else, so getting an effective high-ranking website is the only way to reach these people.
Save your teams time
The sites we create are easy for you to maintain and don’t require you to constantly be updating your listing, so you can spend more time proving a great service to your customer and closing deals.
We can build you a website with a fully integrated property feed from Jupix, Dezrez, PropCo, Vebra, Rezi, ExpertAgent, Citylets or from scheduled BLM or CSV files. It is a fully automated process that runs on a schedule which keeps the properties displayed on your site up to date without you having to do a thing.
