Now, many real estate companies will start to shout in one voice that 3D tours no longer sell! Yes, they do not sell now the way it was when they appeared. Although many companies will announce the fact that they made a lot of sales without them. But let’s go back to how you can effectively use 3D tours for selling real estate.

Have you ever thought why not to get traffic to your site? Everyone is used to writing a couple of posts for their blog and waiting for the flow of customers to their site. But they do not come. Would you be interested in choosing a site for the sale of real estate based on articles from a blog at the buyer’s site? Most likely no. But 3D content is what will keep your customers on the site. Put it on your website and share it on all your social networks. This will not only keep customers on the site but also make it more valuable for the Google search engine. As you can see, 3D tours are still too early to write off. You can give them a new life and get this good effect!

You can do it yourself and shoot a video of a real estate object on your gadgets. Customers are more likely to believe in hand-made videos, and not in super-mounted videos that look like ads.

Why use this video this year? You have probably heard about the new function of Instagram? We are talking about IGTV, which is gaining momentum more and more every day.

All real estate agencies have customer bases. The best option to realize the potential of this base through email marketing.

Trends come and go, but some show consistent sustainability every year. It is a rapprochement and improvement of relationships with potential and existing customers. Personalized emails that are designed with customers’ preferences in mind, help customers treat mailings as a friendly gesture, not a factor of irritation.

Many already know that there is no point in sending emails to people who do not want to receive them. Give subscribers the right to choose the topic of mailings that will be sent to their mailboxes. Do not send them tons of junk mail. This causes only negative and complaints about spam. But doing the opposite way, everyone will be satisfied.

Advertising and retargeting in the email is good. But this year it is worth making the emphasis on the design and content of your writing. It is necessary to ensure that your letters succinctly fit various gadgets. The unique design of the letters will not take long and will force your customers to look at the content of the letter. Do not forget that sometimes you need to make multilingual letters for different segments of your audience. In this case, it is best to use the services of professional translators. For example, The Word Point. So pay a little more attention to your email marketing to expand your customer base and increase sales.
