With the advancement of technology, everything has really become so reachable despite of geographical locations. Especially with the internet, almost everything is already intertwined. This makes it necessary for businesses to get on the bandwagon and be at par with its competition as far as getting customers is concerned and maintain competitiveness. That includes the real estate businesses.
It is important for real estate businesses to understand that online customers are as important as face-to-face ones. Because online transactions are more convenient, such businesses also need to make their online presence and visibility strong.
Based on the National Association of Realtors, 68 percent of people looking for homes used mobile searching to contact a realtor. In addition, 89 percent of such shoppers used their mobile devices to search. Lastly, 21 percent of them found their agents from their online search. This further proves that businesses should give equal weight to attending to mobile users.
But this should not be a problem. Check out some tips that can help you reach and be reachable to your mobile user-customers.
- Use a responsive website. This can be done by simply changing your template. A responsive website can automatically change its size to make it fit and suit a mobile device used for searching. This is especially easy for websites that use the WordPress templates.
- Try making a mobile website. This entails more work than the first one. This website contains the same data that your regular one has. However, when the user accessing your website uses a mobile device, the website detects it and using the code that you entered to connect the mobile one to it, the customer is able to open and navigate the mobile page.
- Make a new responsive design website. This means that you need to pay for more. However, it is convenient for your customers, as they do not have to type in a different web address. It is also beneficial for you because you maintain only one website.
Businesses should not ignore these tips. It might mean the difference between getting more customers and losing them.
