In the real estate industry, timing is crucial. Research shows that 95% of text are opened and replied to within three minutes. By now you probably know the positive impacts of real estate SMS marketing, or text marketing – how it can generate leads and convert those leads. But how do you get started? Lack of inspiration is a problem many real estate marketers face when writing copy. You could find yourself struggling to use the right words or typing the wrong message, struggling to incite a response from your clients. If this is you, then worry no more.. This article outlines the top 5 real estate marketing message templates you can save and send to your clients when needed.
Why Use SMS Message Templates for Your Real Estate Business?
Real estate text message templates save you time composing messages and facilitate quick, conversational responses when communicating with clients or leads and prospects. Here are three great reasons to zero in on strategic template messages when getting started with real estate SMS marketing.
Text messages reach your clients faster on their mobile phones than on any digital device. Since research speculates that more than 50% of online traffic now happen through mobile phones, and your clients are more likely to see a message or notification pop onto their screen. As a result, you can use SMS text marketing to engage your clients and prospects more quickly than other media such as email, mail or social media accounts. Be sure to have a well crafted message with a clear call to action (CTA) guiding the recipient toward what you want them to do. Whether it is a sign-up offer, scheduling open houses, or a quick follow-up, SMS marketing grants you the opportunity to do this quickly and effectively.
Real estate SMS marketing enables realtors to personalize their client’s messages to their specific wants or needs. For example, you can customize your client’s messages by listing prices and setting up the property preferences – the number of bedrooms and bathrooms they want – that fall within their budget. Since you can’t send generic messages to your clients, SMS marketing allows you to customize messages to suit your audience using personalization tokens. With this, your messages can stay more relevant and be of value to your clients
In SMS marketing, a real estate agent can use bulk messaging or quick replies to send follow-up messages to people. You can send automatic responses to people who may have visited your office or logged into your website in the past. Since many real estate agents struggle to follow up on their clients through calls or emails, text messages come in handy and connect you with your clients. All you need to do is to copy the message templates and send them to your clients.
