Defining Your Audience: A Key to Real Estate Marketing SuccessJanuary 12, 2024
Why it’s Important
Have you ever struggled with what to say in a blog post, social post, or email campaign? If so, it was likely you weren’t clear on who you were talking to. As a real estate professional, clearly defining and connecting with your target audience can significantly enhance your marketing efforts and client relationships because you’re addressing someone specific. Have you ever heard ‘When you try to speak to everyone you’re speaking to no one?’
How to Identify Your Ideal Client
Focus on what you’re good at, your area, what you enjoy, and the opportunities that are available to you in the market. For example:
- Take the time to look at where you’ve had success. How did you get your past clients?
- What kinds of activities or lifestyles do they enjoy?
- Are they living in a specific area?
Then Create a Persona
Give your ideal client a name, something like Sally the Savvy Seller or First-Time Buyer Becky. You can have more than one, but it’s important to go through each step.
- Define who they are
- Specific demographic and psychographic characteristics
- Their fears, their pain points, common concerns or challenges
- Where and how they like to communicate and engage
