Social Media for Real Estate Agents

The real estate industry is dramatically changing in South Africa. The demographics of property owners are shifting from the traditional to the fast-paced leaders of tomorrow.

In the recent report by PwC Drivers of change for the Real Estate Industry, technology disruption is something that can no longer be ignored in this industry if you want to be relevant and ahead of the game.

This is the wake-up call to shift your marketing efforts to the next gear; a gear that will speed you up, ensure your team is more effective and ultimately ensure you have your finger on the pulse of potential buyers.

New money requires new media marketing efforts. Social media has changed the way people interact with the world around them and more importantly, their influence in the connections & trusted network they have at their fingertips.

The way real estate agents use social media needs to change on a physiological level. It goes far deeper and way beyond the simple posting of a listing. Are we influencing and are we listening carefully to the conversations in an area?

“The world’s leading companies know that participation
 In social media is no longer an option but a requirement. While social media should not replace the art of traditional communication, it can enhance the overall customer experience in that it offers organisations a new way in which to engage in dialogue with customers, says Johan Potgieter, PwC Technology Leader for South Africa.”
