Five Reasons Why Your Real Estate Business Must Have a Podcast
Thinking of Hiring a Podcast Production Agency?
Podcasts are definitely becoming more popular. A recent study found that global ad revenue from podcasts will reach more than $1.6B in the next few years if growth rates stay the same. You can get information from podcasts while walking, working out, or doing other things.
Because of this, a podcast can be a great way for a business or organization to get the word out. When you post weekly, biweekly, or even monthly content related to your expertise, your profile goes up right away. In the competitive world of real estate, having content that stands out is a key factor in figuring out who will be successful. Don’t think of your podcast as a way to become famous. Instead, think of it as a marketing tool that will help your business grow.
Here are a few reasons why it makes sense to listen to podcasts.
1. Podcasts are naturally made for referrals and networking
Interviews with people who have interesting things to say are good for all podcasts. Your referral network will include everyone you invite to your home, whether they are a local business owner, a former teacher, a fellow realtor, or anyone else you want to meet. Guests can also help spread the word about your business through word of mouth. Just ask them to share the episode in which they appear on their social media accounts.
2. Podcasts make sure you’re targeting the widest audience possible
Have you ever published a fantastic article on your blog or been featured somewhere, and then… nothing happened? It’s possible that you aren’t targeting the right people with your content because you can’t seem to find them. In 2017, one quarter of Americans, or 67 million people, listened to podcasts on a monthly basis, and the proportion of listeners is only expected to increase. If you turn your blog posts or other people’s expert opinions into a podcast, you just might get the feedback you were missing before.
3. You’ll become an expert
Beginning a regular podcast in which you provide helpful guidance and respond to challenging questions will, at some point, establish you as an authority in your field. This increased visibility may result in inquiries from the media, additional leads, or an increase in the number of referrals. People are more likely to trust those who they believe to be ‘experts,’ and having a podcast that sounds professional is a great step in the process of gaining people’s trust. Have a customer who is giving you a particularly challenging question? Just refer them to Episode 14!
4. Podcasts are personal
Real estate is all about making connections with people and talking to them. Even though blog posts and podcasts are great for SEO, they lack the personality that is so important in real estate transactions. You can say the same things in a podcast that you could say in a blog post, but in a much more personal way. By listening to your podcast, your listeners are already interacting with you. They may not have met you or seen you before, but they already feel like they know you. You’ve made a group of people who are willing to listen without even going outside.
5. It will help your public speaking abilities
As a real estate agent, presentation skills are a big part of the job, and there’s nothing worse than being unable to speak when a lot is at stake. Recording podcasts on a regular basis helps you improve your voice and cadence for public speaking. It’s also great practice for future media or speaking jobs. Practice makes perfect, and with a podcast you can market that practice as well.
We started a podcast last year, and both inside and outside the company, people have been loving it. To really stand out, you’ll need something that people WANT to listen to. That means good content and good production quality, which is something that a lot of podcasts lack. Creating a podcast that sounds professional can be hard and take a lot of time if you don’t know how to do it or have the right tools. O’Neill and Associates has both the equipment and the production skills to help you get your podcast off the ground.
