Dear Home Seller

The real estate market is ever changing and traditional marketing is no longer enough!

VRI Homes (formerly Better Homes Realty) is changing the real estate marketing landscape.

The days of just putting your home in MLS and ad in local paper or magazine are gone. Digital marketing is critical to the successful sale of your home. Exposure is the key to highest price for your property.

Research shows that homebuyers search online for real estate, 94% according to recent reports. Most of them do not go to real estate company or agent websites. Surveys show that most buyer start at third party sites like Zillow , Homes.com, Realtor.com, Trulia.com, Homesin.com and many others. Several years ago VRI Homes began building third party websites, like newhomesinyourtown.com, homesofdistinction.com , historichomesinyourtown.com, adulthomesinyourtown.com, ushorsefarms.com, waterfronthomesinyourtown.com,mobilehomesinyourtown.com, modularhomesinyourtown.com, condosinyourtown.com and rentaslinyourtown.com.

Then we built Homesintheunitedstates.com, homesinnewjersey.com and then linked them to every town homesin(yourtown).com (example www.homesinrumson.com). These sites were featured in NYTimes article.Then we built digital marketing team of support staff to assist our agents in the new world. Our team consists of social media marketing specialist including facebook, Instagram, youtube, twitter, bloggers, press release writers, search engine traffic specialist. This investment in online marketing is what separates us from any other real estate company.

Goal is the get the highest price for your home, thru maximum exposure to buying public. We believe our system can promote your property like no other company can.

The Most Important Aspects of a Digital Marketing Plan

So what are the most important aspects of a digital marketing plan? 

  1. Initial Market Place Analysis for your home. (overview of your market, realistic assessment of your performance in this space and competitive analysis)
  2. Articulation of clear Business Objectives of your digital marketing program – such as Increase awareness, increase sales activity, increase customer awareness– these are all standard business objectives but on their own they do not give you a pathway to implement them digitally – that’s why you have to dig down and go beyond these in a digital sense.
  3. Next step is to deconstruct these business objectives down into goals that give your plan a clear direction – you can then start to adopt tactics that will deliver these ‘Digital Goals’.
  4. Once you know what your digital goals are, then you can define what your main Key Performance 
  5. Facebook , Google, twitter, instagram,snap chat, youtube and your website.
  6.  When defining your target audience give them as much detail as possible – it will be worth its weight in gold when you start trying to communicate with them.
  7. For each of these develop a clear Value Proposition for your home and how it relates to them – and by that I mean, clearly articulate and answer the question, “If I am your ideal customer, why should I purchase from you over one of your competitors?”
  8. Once you’ve identified your personas, then you can research, based on their informational and locational needs as well as their digital behaviours, the correct and most appropriate digital channels to target them on
  9. This is where you then go into great detail on your digital channel strategy – be that SEO, PPC, Display, Email, Social, Affiliate, Mobile etc. I recommend strongly in this section that you break up your tactical solutions into: Customer Reach, Customer Acquisition, Customer Retention or some variation of this – essentially map the Digital channels on to the Sales/Buyer Cycle.
  10. And finally, define how you will measure all of this – for each of the channels you should have a clear measurement framework in place where you can measure the effectiveness of each of the channels and produce a matrix of core metrics that indicate whether you are on track to meet targets or not (and have a plan to take remedial action when not meeting targets)
