When it comes to inbound marketing, content is king. So, when it comes to content, you have the play by the king’s rules. The 80/20 rule offers guidance for posting content on to social media. 80% of the content should help, educate, or entertain your consumers, and only 20% of the content should be selling your real estate service. Too much salesy talk can turn off your consumers - use this help-first, sell-later strategy to keep them coming back for more. Put yourself in your consumer’s shoes. Would you like to see listing posts all the time? Or would you like to see useful information that helps you in your home buying process? I’d pick the latter, wouldn't you?

When implemented correctly, you will increase engagement with your social media audience and drive more traffic to your website – capturing your traffic's contact information and converting them into leads.
