At Inman Connect New York 2017 this past week there was a speaker that spoke about the importance of real estate web site performance. The speaker was Raluca Monet from Google.
During Raluca's presentation I guess she asked all the attendees in her session to test their own web site using testmysite.thinkwithgoogle.com. She was willing to give anyone that had at least a 90 for all three scores a prize. Not one person in the session had a web site that scored that well. She then asked if anyone had a web site that scored at least two 95's or higher. No one did.
The trend of increasing mobile web site traffic continued in September 2016. Last month showed that mobile real estate web site traffic to be at 52% of overall real estate web site traffic for real estate companies.
So, what does this mean for your real estate business?
With mobile now taking a solid lead in real estate web site traffic now, more than ever, is the time for real estate companies and agents to focus on the mobile consumer. But, what does it really mean to focus on the mobile consumer?
As a real estate broker, your goal is to generate leads that will increase business for your agents and company. You probably already have an eye-catching website that generates leads. Your business is good, but is it great?
To turn your business from good to great means incorporating some of today's latest technologies into your overall marketing strategy. Start with a mobile responsive website design. A mobile responsive website design automatically scales its layout and content to fit whatever device visitors are using at the time.
With 89 percent of new home buyers using mobile search engines, it only makes sense to give your visitors a modern and easy-to-use website.
Still a little unclear about what makes a responsive design such an important part of your digital marketing plan?
Summer is prime house hunting season—I'm not telling you something you don't already know. Google confirmed it when they reported that July is the month where real estate-related search terms typically spike. Combine that with the fact that 89 percent of home shoppers use mobile devices to search for homes, and I have to ask … Will your company be ready to capitalize on the 2016 selling season?
