Emerging tech is making it easier but where do you start? Finding the simplest, most affordable solution giving you the best ROI is a challenge! In this blog, we're going to cover real estate lead generation basics and a product that produces insane ROI year over year.
A recent study from the National Association of Realtors revealed that 92% of buyers use the Internet to house hunt. This strongly indicates a need for all real estate business to have an established online presence, and Zillow is the first place you should start. Zillow Premier Agent is Zillow’s lead generation platform. As the largest real estate website with over 130 million visits per month, Zillow could generate $2.60 in commissions for every $1 spent.
Facebook has made the process of generating leads on the platform much easier. With the new Lead Generation objective, you can ask customers and prospects for their information, and they can provide it without ever having to leave Facebook. Here’s how lead ads work. Show your ad to users, and if they’re interested, they’ll click the call to action to bring up a form pre-filled with their personal information that they’ve shared with the network. They can then review the information, edit it if needed and click Submit. Read about Facebook Leads here.

“It’s not just about getting these leads, it’s about figuring out who buys the most. So say you sell 10 condos to millennial apartment owners, and your average lead cost is $2. But if average lead cost is $10 for a doctor, but doctors bought 30 condos—I would rather pay the $10 and sell more condos. That cost per lead is not that big a difference when you’re selling something that’s so high-ticket.”
We recommend checking out LeadPages, if you haven't already, and start with one of there simple templates. Not to savvy with Tech? It's ok. They have a ton of support articles and helpful video's to get you setup with minimal overhead.
