Change is coming. Or is it already here? It’s a good question, and one realtors asks themselves from time to time. But one thing’s for sure: “global mega-trends will change the real estate landscape considerably over the next six years and beyond,” says PwC.
While home-buyers are still turning to real estate agents for advice, they’re doing so much later than before. Technology has enabled buyers to find all the information they need to make informed decisions without the initial help of a realtor. Accordingly, they’re more educated about the market than ever before.
To keep pace with customers’ shifting expectations, agencies must adapt and develop the skills they’ll need in tomorrow’s economic climate. With content marketing platforms, for example, they’re able to attract readers, close deals faster, improve the customer experience, and optimize business processes for maximum engagement.
Meeting the needs of today’s best agents
Today, many agents and larger agencies use content marketing platforms to create top-notch property listings, distribute them to customers and prospects, maintain databases, conduct email campaigns, and generate leads. It’s all done from one platform, and integrating with other content marketing or sales automation platforms adds even more flexibility to an agent's work. Content marketing platforms do what no other platforms can: streamline the customer acquisition and sales processes. With one in place, agents can improve their conversion rates and boost content engagement. Here’s how:
200% increase in average session durations
5x as many page views
40% decrease in bounce rates
20% improvements in close rates
75% reduction in sales cycles
