Problem Statement of the Real Estate Company “B”
The Real Estate company approached us to help their business grow online. The coronavirus pandemic has significantly changed the marketing style of realtors from offline to online. The real estate company had an online presence, but they weren’t able to attract good leads. The website was not performing that effectively as it could with a more precise and focused digital marketing strategy.

The Real Estate Company “B” wanted to focus mainly on an audience from a specific region. Our strategy was to research their niche, existing customers and create a target audience. With the help of a target audience, our real estate digital marketing strategy was to conduct keyword research and develop an SEO strategy.

After defining the target audience, researching keywords was the next step to identify what the target audience is seeking on the web. We started listing all the favourable keywords.

Search Engine Optimization (or SEO)
To rank higher on the search engine, SEO is crucial. SEO is significantly essential for the real estate industry as it is cost-effective for generating valuable leads and guarantees business growth. Conducting SEO for a real estate company was tough as very few leads convert to customers because buying property is not an easy task.
We started publishing blog articles for the company after researching the search trends in the targeted region. Through blog posts, we started answering the most common questions asked by home buyers. This real estate digital marketing strategy started gaining the audience’s attention, and we were able to gather 3084 organic impressions and 108 organic clicks on the website.
The improvement in organic traffic resulted in a higher ranking on the search engine. On google, the Global Ranking of the website has grown from 718693 to 239401. Also, the Local Rank has risen from 93763 to 71859 in less than 3 months.
Websites should be developed in such a way that users can easily navigate through them. To provide ease of access to the audience, we created category wise property listings, helping users browse efficiently without searching too much. The contact us section, search bar for finding properties, has helped the company gain prospects.
To ace a digital marketing strategy, one needs to examine the performance of various metrics. Weekly analytics and reports have helped us and the real estate company to analyse which digital marketing strategy is working the best.
