Real estate tech tools for telling stories that matter
So you’ve got an idea for a real estate story.
Wouldn’t it be great if there were some tech tools that could not only help you create your story, but also share it with your sphere of influence?
No problem. Here’s a short list…
Social media and storytelling
It’s one thing to create a real estate story. It’s another thing for other people to actually see it, read it, hear it, enjoy it, and (best of all) share it! Use social media to get your stories to buyers and sellers alike.
Paradym automatically pulls information from your MLS, creates stories, and shares them for you to social media… hands-free.
Try using something like Hootsuite to make sure you’re keeping your ear to the ground and listening for reactions to your stories.
Writing tools to tell your real estate story
If you want to successfully market your listings and value with storytelling, you’re going to have to write something. Here are a few tools that can make the job easier (and more effective!).
WordPress is a popular content management system that can help you manage your website, blog posts, web pages, and more. And it can serve as a hub for your real estate stories.
Have you ever tried posting an article on LinkedIn instead of a standard update? By posting your story as an article, your story is featured on your profile and may be further promoted to your sphere.
Being long winded can actually harm the effectiveness of your story. Use the Hemingway app to trim some of the fat.
