Agents: How To Get Maximum Exposure and Why A Quality Portal Is The Key

Written by Realty Times Staff Posted On Sunday, 28 August 2016 18:10

Let's face it -- exposure is what makes or breaks a real estate agent's business. As long as people will live in houses, there will be listings, but you need to make those listings stand out if you want to get leads and convert them into sales. That means you need exposure, and lots of it.

The powerful online real estate portal Point2 Homes has 3.43 million monthly visits -- up by 39% compared to last year, and the numbers are growing constantly. That traffic gives you access to many more leads than was ever possible before the rise of the online marketplace by making sure your listings and services stand out in front of the right homebuyers and sellers.

You could argue that back in the times of the ad paper, it was easier than in this digital age. After all, listings were all focused in one place -- the local paper. Still, Point2 Homes has had 137 million listing views this year alone, which is more than any newspaper can promise nowadays.

Advertise in a smart and consistent way

You can really reap the benefits provided by the Point2 Homes search website once you become a Point2 Agent member. Statistics show that Point2 Homes has generated 26% more leads for Point2 agents in the past 6 months, and one of the reasons for that growth was the enhancement of the Featured Advertising options.

Just by being a Point2 member, you already get priority placement for your listings, but when you want to take things up a notch, Featured Ads are the way to go. With Featured Listing Ads your properties will stand out at the top of search results and they will be more visible to motivated house hunters. Featured Agent Ads work by highlighting your profile to potential homebuyers or sellers, and recommending you as the local expert and the go-to real estate professional.
