How to write the perfect blog to attract more vendors and landlords

As an estate or letting agent, you may already know that having a strong online presence is crucial for success in today's market. A well-crafted blog can be an invaluable tool for attracting and engaging potential vendors and landlords, establishing yourself as an authority in your field, and ultimately driving business growth.

In this article, the ValPal team will share some tips and insights on how to create the perfect blog for estate and letting agents.



Understanding your target audience

What are their pain points and challenges? What do they want to know? What are they needs?

The current market may have left potential vendors and landlords with lots of questions, doubts, and uncertainty. You can answer many of those questions through your blogs, offering them the information they need and clarifying aspects that are a concern for them. By answering those questions, you can also tailor your content to meet their specific needs.


Researching and selecting relevant topics

When selecting topics, consider what's currently happening in the property market – which is a lot at the moment!

You can also draw inspiration from your clients' frequently asked questions, industry news and events, and your own expertise and experience.

These days, local area guides, handy checklists (especially for landlords), property advice for buyers or sellers and mortgage news are hot topics!


Coming up with attention-grabbing headlines

Your headline is the first thing readers will see, so it's essential to make it attention-grabbing and informative. It should be clear, concise, and specific, and promise a benefit or solution to the reader. For example, “How to sell your home quickly in a competitive market” or “5 top tips to find the perfect rental property in London”.

Try to use strong action words and emotional triggers and language that will pick your reader's interest and entice them to click through and read your blog.


Writing quality content for the current 2023 property market

Always aim for quality over quantity. Your blog should be well-researched, informative, and engaging. It should also be easy to read and understand - use short paragraphs, subheadings, and bullet points to break up the text.

Avoid using jargon - readers might not fully understand the terms you often use in business. Keep the tone casual. And don't forget to proofread your work for spelling and grammar errors before publishing!


Optimising your blog for SEO

By optimising your blog for SEO, you can increase your visibility in search engine results like Google, attract more traffic to your site, and ultimately generate more vendor and landlord leads.

Research relevant keywords applicable to your niche and location, and include them in your blog title, meta description, and content. Use subheadings and bullet points to break up the text and make it easier to read. Add internal and external links to relevant sources. Finally, make sure your blog is mobile-friendly and loads quickly.


Utilising images and other media

Images and other media can help make your blog more engaging and visually appealing. Consider including photos, infographics, videos, and other media to break up the text and illustrate your points. When using images, make sure they are high-quality and relevant to the topic, and most importantly, that you have the right to use them!

Don't forget to include alt text and descriptions to make your blog more accessible and SEO-friendly.


Promoting your blog through social media and other channels

Consider reaching out to other bloggers or industry influencers and asking them to share your content. You can also promote your blog through email marketing, guest blogging, and paid advertising –we can certainly help with that!


Measuring your blog's success and making improvements:

Track your metrics such as page views, time on page, and click-through rate. Are there any topics or types of content that are resonating with your audience? Are there any areas where you could improve your SEO or content quality? Use this data to make improvements and optimize your blog for success.
