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.

 

 

Stories

Use Instagram Stories and Facebook’s latest Story feature to share your stories about the properties, places, and people in your market.

Paradym

Paradym automatically pulls information from your MLS, creates stories, and shares them for you to social media… hands-free.

Hootsuite

Try using something like Hootsuite to make sure you’re keeping your ear to the ground and listening for reactions to your stories.

Hashtags

Search local hashtags and related real estate topics on Twitter and do some local real estate related searches on Facebook.

 

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

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.

Google Docs

Give Google Docs a try. This popular cloud-based app automatically saves your work, it’s integrated with Google, and you can access your documents anywhere you have an internet connection.

LinkedIn Articles

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.

Hemingway App

Being long winded can actually harm the effectiveness of your story. Use the Hemingway app to trim some of the fat.
