Words, Words, Words! Spice up your Website by Choosing the RIGHT Words.

    Agents are always looking for ways to stand out from the crowd in their local marketplace.

    Yet one look at any market’s real estate websites disproves this claim because most agent websites look pretty much the same.

    Value propositions are the way many agents try to set themselves apart. However, there are more subtle ways to show the public that you’re different and make a lasting impression.

    Use your words

    Have you considered dropping the word “testimonials” from your website? There are so many other, more exciting ways to grab your visitor’s attention.

    How about “success stories?” I’d be much more likely to click on a success story link than one labeled “testimonial.”

    Consider changing your “about” or “About the Team” to “Meet Joe Smith” or “Meet the Team.” Or, consider “Get to know Joe Smith.”

    You might also consider titling your first open house as a “Launch Event.”

    Finally, let’s ditch the word “Blog.” From now on, use “Learn” in the navbar. After all, that’s what they’re trying to do by visiting your website, right?

    Want an alternative? How about “Discover?”

    Use your client’s words

    Many agents treat testimonials, or “success stories” as we mentioned earlier, like throwaways. It’s amazing because they are the single most important marketing tool you have yet they’re tucked away on a dedicated page on your website.

    Not used in marketing materials. Not used above the fold on the front page of your website.

    Be generous with those tidbits of valuable, free marketing. Ensure your best one shows up, above the fold, on your home page, so it’s among the first things your visitors see.

    Then sprinkle others throughout the pages of your website. Keep what’s left for the dedicated page.

    Sure, these are subtle changes, but when real estate consumers are visiting multiple agents’ websites, they’ll make a positive and lasting impression.
