01 – Organic positioning
Search engines like Google, for example, are the first search alternative for people looking for a property on the internet. Therefore, simulate how the buyer would search for a property with characteristics similar to the residences offered by you. Those portals that appear in the first options of your searches are the ones that will also position yourself for your possible customers. So, this is a good first step to start analyzing portals.
02 – Understand your industry
Try to understand if there are portals focused especially on the property you are going to advertise. There are websites that specialize in some types of developments, such as luxury homes, property rentals for students, foreigners, among others. Often, these real estate platforms can offer the opportunity to attract and segment your customers with greater accuracy.
03 – Place ads on prominent portals
No broker wants to be just another professional in the midst of his area of expertise. Generally, paid real estate portals are the best alternatives to have a greater prominence among other professionals. Also pay attention to the way you advertise your products.
After checking the positioning of the portal on search engines, understand more about the time to market, structure, number of advertisers, layout and history of the site. Pay attention also to the navigability, that is, if the portal is easy to use or not.
04 – Test more than one portal
Use more than one portal at the same time to compare the results that each one offers. Listen carefully to the proposals that each one has and, if they promise very aggressive results, be on the lookout for possible fraud. Ask the numbers and facts that the portal can provide and understand what this data means. Some platforms offer free of charge for a trial period. Take advantage of the opportunities.
05 – Watch the competition
Do you have any brokers who admire your work and think you are an excellent professional? So get to know him even better and try to find where they are advertising their properties. This can be a good indicator when it comes to helping you choose the ideal portal for your projects.
