“If content marketing is so great, why isn’t every estate agent doing it?”

So, the telephone conversation went something like this:

Estate Agent: “With the property market coming back to life, I need to attract more people to my agency.”

Me: “Great. I can help with that. What’s your current strategy?”

Estate Agent: “Strategy? Erm…well, I’m on all the portals obviously. Right Move, Zoopla and so on, and I post my market share figures on my social media accounts a few times a month so that people know that we’re the best in the business.

I own a dog. A beautiful fox red Labrador, who goes by the name of Skye. She is one of the reasons I have stayed sane during the past few weeks because every day Skye and I have continued to head out on our lockdown walkies.

Estate Agents: Business just got personal!

I don’t know about you, but I do my absolute best thinking when I’m out walking the dog or immersed in exercise. And yesterday was no exception.

Content Matters: What’s the biggest mistake estate agents make when posting on social media?

Watch the video: It’s hard to think up new ideas and posts every day, several times a day, and so generally, what happens is that you end up posting stuff that isn’t going to be helpful in bringing you more brand awareness or more leads.

And there’s one really common mistake that estate agents make when posting – and this applies to social media and blog content too.

So, what’s the crime?

Estate Agents: Are you normal?

So here we are, in week five of lockdown! Who would have thought it?

If you’re anything like me, you will have moments of complete clarity, where you accept the coronavirus situation and get on with it, and other moments, more extreme moments, where you have a complete wobble and think:
