The large and active user group is just one of the reasons why you recommend using FaceBook ads for marketing. It also has the advantages of simple delivery process, low delivery cost, accurate delivery, and wide delivery range. Here are 7 tips of Facebook Ads for Realtors to increase your ROI and help you save a lot of time.

1.Build a compelling Facebook Page

Advertising on Facebook, first thing to do is to create a home page for your business. Through the homepage you can let potential customers know about your business and be able to interact with them. In order to create a compelling page, you need to fill in a name for your page, upload a suitable head sculpture and background page, fill in your business profile, and leave your contact information.

You can name the page by combining your name with the company's name, or combining your name with 'Realtors'. Upload your personal formal photos as your head image, and use attractive real estate photos as the background, so that visitors can intuitively understand your work. It is suggested that you clearly fill in the service scope and service area in the introduction, as well as the relevant honors you have won. These introductions not only make you professional, but also improve the communication efficiency between you and potential customers.

The page of the realtor, which uses the company logo as the head image, and fills in all the information boxes in detail is a good example.

2.Increase page like and following

After having a Facebook Page, you need to improve the quality of the page by increasing the number of likes and followings. When potential customers enter your page, a large number of likes and followings can help you gain their trust.

One way to increase the likes and following of the page is to publish some high-quality content. These contents can be professional real estate knowledge or recent real estate information. If your content gives visitors something to gain, you are most likely to be liked, shared or followed.

Another way is to establish contacts and interact with other realtors. As your interaction with people in the same industry gradually increases, Facebook’s algorithm will gradually classify your page as a realtor and push your page to users who wants to buy or sell houses.

3.Clear advertising goals

When you use the Facebook Ads Manager to place ads, you can achieve different delivery effects by selecting different delivery goals, such as Brand awareness, Traffic, Lead Generation, Conversion, and so on.

Because the purchase of real estate occurs offline, users need to consult information and visit the real estate on the spot after seeing advertisements. Lead Generation is not suitable as the target of real estate advertising, and Traffic is not the best choice. In the early stage of creating a Page, it is recommended that you focus on Brand awareness in your advertising campaigns. With the goal of increasing brand awareness, you can advertise to a wider audience and interact with people who have never been in contact with your brand before. In the later stage, you can use Facebook Pixel and run redirect ads. For details, see the sixth tips.
