People are cruising through hundreds and thousands of listings; they will click on a well captured and attractive image.
4. A video walkthrough
List a certain property in a specific area on your website and interested customers will rush to check it out. Create a video walk-through of the property while giving a professional voice over. This strategy will help you estimate the number of interested people and allow the prospective buyer to see what the place looks like in person.
5. Content marketing

Build useful and relevant content on local websites that ultimately leads to your website and your services. As a real estate agent enlist your services with websites such as LinkedIn. Quora and Medium. However, the first step is to build SEO content on your own website, which may just bring your website into the limelight.
