Takeaway #1: Don’t rely on articles

Top Real Estate Professionals frequently post articles featuring interior design, home financing, and a whole range of homebuyer and home seller content.

Videos are Viral

Top Real Estate Professionals only post videos 7% of the time. While videos are time consuming and take a bit of effort to properly post, you’ll find it’s worth it as videos are TWICE as engaging as articles.

Photos are KING

Photos are FOUR times more effective than articles, they are easy to come by (when you use Shotzr), and you can get hyper-local by sharing shots your followers will recognize and relate to.
