2. You Can Run an Ad Promoting Single or Multiple Listings

Did you know that you can run an ad to a specific audience with either single or multiple listings?

You can advertise Real Estate Listings easily by using a pre-loaded blueprint which will be filled with the information from the MLS listing connected with LionDesk. For Single Real Estate Listing the ad will pull in listing information and images to highlight 1 listing & For Multiple Real Estate Listing the ad will pull in images to highlight multiple properties.

Sometimes, a single listing is a great option for an ad. It focuses your audience on one listing and allows you to promote one really great listing (or a listing that needs more eyes on it).

Alternatively, video ads are also a powerful tool. Some great use cases for using your own videos are listing walkthroughs where you showcase your personality as well as the property, or just talk to the camera about a few listings you’re excited about.

Real Estate is all about relationships, if you can get a video of yourself out to a wider audience, you’ll build those relationships on a larger scale.

4. You Can Run Ads to Generate Traffic

In many of our advertising efforts, we tend to focus solely on lead capture. Lead capture is essential, but generating traffic is also extremely important.

More traffic to your business website means more opportunities for increased profitability and brand recognition to turn visitors into customers. More traffic helps increase the ranking of your company website in search engines, which increases your online discoverability.

Traffic generating ads could go farther for a lower budget as well because there’s less of a barrier to entry, since you’re not asking leads to fill out their info to learn more. Instead, you’re building trust and familiarity by offering some ungated content.
