We’ve all experienced this… the volume of incoming real estate leads is ok, but your sales team just can’t seem to close them and eventually frustrations arise between the sales and marketing team. Where one blames the other for not doing their job properly.
The issue lies in the way data is used to produce revenue – starting with high-quality lead generation.
Let me introduce you to the competitive advantages of Data-Driven Lead Generation for Real Estate using MyImmowi.
Where it all goes wrong..
At the launch of a new real estate project, every project developer or real estate agent is wildly enthusiastic. Meetings are held to work everything out to the last detail and finally the online lead generation campaign is launched.
The first real estate leads roll in so rapidly that it is almost impossible to manage the flow.
There is euphoria in the whole company!
But in the end, the sales do not follow…
Euphoria turns into frustration…
Instead of taking a closer look at their broken marketing funnel and analysing where, exactly, their real estate leads are drop off..
These project developers or real estate agents pull out their credit card and expand the campaign to an even wider audience. With the idea that more leads are needed to succeed.
They fall prey to the all-too-common misconception that you should be marketing your real estate project to as many people as you can..
However, this “reckless” marketing approach won’t bear any fruit if 99% of the people that are coming across your real estate project are not your ideal buyer!
Sure – you’ll be reaching more potential buyers overall. But that doesn’t actually solve the problem you had in the first place. Your conversion rate is still low and your CPL is way too high.
The solution is there for the taking.. Get insight into your data!
Quality Over Quantity
This is exactly where data-driven lead generation is so important.
Rather than focusing on reaching more potential buyers, this methodology helps focusing on the right kind of people. Your ideal ta
Data-driven lead generation focuses on leveraging sales and marketing data to focus on the quality of leads over quantity. This is an extremely important concept.
Data-driven lead generation is Power
Data gives you knowledge. Gives you insights. Your marketing strategy becomes even more powerful if you have the right information in your hands. Armed with that information, you can create a scalable marketing process that can be repeated and can run on auto-pilot.
As a result, you have more time, allowing you to focus more to do what you are really good at. Selling real estate!
The sad truth, however, is only a few marketers can use data effectively.
However, here’s the good news: MyImmowi takes care of this.
Lead Generation, Data Analytics & Marketing Campaigns
In order to build the right lead generation approach for you as a project developer or real estate agent, you’ll need to be able to provide usable data. It is crucial to gather accurate, relevant marketing and sales data. Which can help drive your analysis.
Useful examples are:
- How old is my average buyer?
- On which online channels is your target group most active?
- How far does this buyer live from your real estate project expressed in a radius?
- What is the budget of your target group?
- Is there a line in the buyers’ expectations of available facilities?
- Are they end users or rather investors?
- Do they click through the most on interior or exterior photos of your real estate project?
This data can then help generate insights and prove or disprove your hypothesis of whether a specific strategy could work.
With data analytics, you can focus on understanding the different attributes of your target group and developing personalised online marketing campaigns.
Good Data-Driven Lead Generation Is Unbiased Data
But here’s the real beauty of data-driven lead generation:
Data is always unbiased.
Engage & Nurture
Have your prospects engaged with your project?
If so, are you nurturing them?
Tracking and analyzing a prospect’s interaction with your real estate marketing campaigns is crucial to identifying their possibilities of becoming a qualified lead. Once you have identified how they have interacted with your campaigns, you can create a nurturing strategy.
Why are engagement and nurturing so important for generating qualified Real Estate leads?
We will explain this by means of an example.
You, as a project developer or real estate agent, are selling a high-end project and are running a Facebook ad promoting the launch of the penthouse. The people who will click on this sponsored ad are likely to be looking at buying a penthouse and would like more information. These website visitors, who have landed on your project page, are the ones who can become a potential buyer. Here, you have identified their intrest. You can again filter them to get visiters-specific content, by adding specific questions to the landingpage form. Such as budget, the number of bedrooms, when do they want to visit the real estate project, …
In this way, you can convert them from unknown prospect to known potential real estate buyer lead. You need to connect the dots with your data around each of these dimensions to define the highest value leads and to differentiate between soft leads and hot leads.
Personalised email marketing campaigns are then the next step. We prefer using ActiveCampaign, because of there wide range of marketing automation possibilities. Another great self-hosted email marketing platform, when using Laravel as a php framework, is Mailcoach. We’ve integrated this in our own Data-Driven Lead Generation Platform.
