Pinterest: it’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s useful. Users from all walks of life are excited to collect pictures of things that inspire them to explore their creativity and pin them to their boards, and real estate professionals like you are really starting to benefit from it now. Not only can you use different boards on Pinterest to let your followers know more about you and the things you love, but now, thanks to a new feature from Homes.com, you can also utilize Pinterest to increase your online visibility and traffic to your listings with the new “Pin It” Button feature on your listing photos!
This new feature from Homes.com allows you to “pin” photos of your Homes.com listings to any of your boards on Pinterest right from the Homes.com listing page. When you do this, the picture of your pin will link back to your original listing on Homes.com, which allows you to increase online visibility, promote your listings, and connect with prospects.
Promote your listings — As a busy real estate professional, you can never have enough places to promote your listings. Pinterest gives you one more place to do that with your Homes.com listings. You can make a board called, “My Listings,” or maybe several boards and name them according to the different areas you cover, and “pin” all of your listing photos to them with detailed descriptions. That way, when users are searching for certain keywords in the Pinterest board database, your picture and link to your listing will come up! This will allow you to…
Connect with prospects — If a Pinterest user is looking for ideas for their next home and they find one of your listings within the pins, they have a direct connection to you on Homes.com! Your pin will link them back to your original listing and they’ll be able to see more photos of that listing, the rest of your listings on Homes.com, and information on how to contact you.
Increase your online visibility — All of this increases your online visibility which, as we’ve mentioned before, is crucial to your real estate business’ success. The more you engage with clients and prospects, the more likely it will be that they will think of you when it comes time for them to buy or sell a home. Homes.com and Pinterest have made this extremely easy for you!
