In this digital age, it’s nearly impossible to market your real estate business without a strong web presence to go along with your print marketing campaigns. As real estate professionals, you need to have a real estate website for each area you serve, plus specific landing pages and property microsites to match. The goal of these websites is to enhance your print marketing material while tracking potential clients’ engagement and providing them accurate, location-specific data. Not sure why having a real estate website will benefit your business? Here are three reasons from industry experts.

What Websites Should
Real Estate Agents Have

Successful real estate agents understand the balance between print and digital marketing, which means. That your print materials should promote your location-specific websites, and those sites are tracking engagement from the mailer. However, it’s important to note that your business website is not the same as location-specific microsites. Your business website serves as the foundation for your online presence and allows for a general home search. But it should not be the catchall for your advertising campaigns. In addition to your business website, you should have:

● Community Websites: Built to showcase your expertise on the neighborhood as a whole.
● Property Microsites: Designed to highlight the key characteristics of each home for sale.
● Landing Pages: Made to add value to both your market reports and postcard campaigns.

Each webpage should be customized to your brand and created with your direct mail marketing materials in mind. A professional, eye-catching design is also a must, along with easy-to-read content that gets straight to the point. To avoid spreading yourself too thin, consider focusing on one service area at a time. As you achieve market saturation in that area, you can move on to other neighborhoods, slowly increasing your brand

Why Create Real Estate
Websites for Each Area

Although an all-inclusive website might feel cohesive to you, it’s often overwhelming for your viewers. Potential clients are busier than ever these days and simply don’t have time to go digging for information or data on your website. So, if they land on a website with layers upon layers of pages, they’ll quickly lose interest and seek out other websites instead. To avoid that, you need to have a real estate website set up for each area and include that link (or QR code) to your direct mail marketing materials. Ensure that your location-specific website also has landing
pages and property microsites with all the relevant housing market information. With this approach, your prospective clients will have all the information they need at their fingertips. By pairing your direct mail marketing with purpose-built microsites, you’ll quickly get recognized as the go- to neighborhood real estate expert. Plus, you’ll have more qualified leads coming your way instead of going to your competitors.

Drawbacks of Just Using One
Website for All Housing Markets

Now that you know the benefits of having a location-specific website for your potential clients, let’s explore why having one website for all housing markets is a disadvantage to you and your brand. Skipping the chance to harness the power of microsites will leave you struggling with many disadvantages, such as:

● Inability to clearly demonstrate your knowledge of local neighborhoods
● Low exposure rates for your listings, resulting in poor home selling results
● Fewer ways to track the success of your direct mail marketing campaigns
● Lack of an online presence, leaving opportunities on the table in this digital world

Ultimately, using one website for all housing markets will cause you to miss out on opportunities to meet your clients’ needs and grow your business. You won’t be able to customize the home buying and selling journey. Nor will you have a chance to push your
