October 31 2018

delta 4 types of content realtors need to useWhat does your real estate content say about your business and brand? While you don't have to be a writing expert to create an excellent blog post, it's important to make sure that your content represents the best elements of your brand. That requires creating content that demonstrates your expertise, speaks to the needs of your audience, and takes advantage of trends geared specifically toward real estate clients.

Creating different types of content allows you to connect with different segments of your audience, and keeps people coming back to see what you'll create next. Today, we're going to take a closer look at four types of content that are essential for marketing your real estate business.

Content Catering to Your Unique Audience

Do you market to real estate investors, established buyers seeking luxury homes, or first-time shoppers who are figuring out how to navigate the process? If your business caters to a specific real estate niche, then it's a great idea to think about the types of content that people in that niche would most like to see. Luxury shoppers may be less interested in the basics of buying a home, and more concerned with the latest amenities available. New buyers, on the other hand, might love seeing content that addresses the most common questions for people in their position.

Guest Posts to Increase Visibility and Grow Your Brand

While your blog is naturally your priority, guest posting on other websites is an excellent way to reach a new audience, grow your brand, and guide people back to your site. The key to successful guest posts is quality, because the better your content, the more likely people will be to seek more information about your business. Make sure that guest posts show the best of your real estate blogging skills and expertise to establish yourself as a real estate authority.

Episodic Content for Long-Term Marketing

Keeping the attention of your audience is one of your biggest challenges no matter what you blog about—which helps explain the rise in popularity of episodic content. Just like your favorite TV shows, episodic content gives your audience a reason to check back frequently to catch the latest post in a series. Quality episodic content takes planning, both in how you create and promote your content. Keeping a set schedule, with a theme that carries through every blog and a plan to promote your posts on social media, will help keep your episodic content on track.

Educational Content Is Always in Style

Whether you're creating niche content, guest blogging, planning a content campaign, or creating any other type of content, it's hard to go wrong by educating your audience on the topics that matter most to them. There are endless topics from which to choose for real estate. You can create educational content geared toward specific segments of your audience, or go for general tips that a wide audience can appreciate. In addition to being helpful to your audience, educational content is one of the best ways to establish yourself as a real estate expert.
