If you’re a seasoned real estate professional, you probably know that your online presence is essential to your success or failure when it comes to generating new leads and clients for your business. Now more than ever, the Internet has become the primary method used by home buyers when looking for a new home. Online searches and listings have made it easier for prospective home buyers to find their dream homes. A study shows that the real estate industry now spends 56% of its overall spending on online advertising.
One of the emerging social media marketing platform today is YouTube. Not only is the site the second largest social media network, but every imaginable interest is explored on the video sharing site. From instructional to educational to downright outrageous, people are searching for and viewing videos of all kinds to satisfy their interests–including real estate.
Because of the great demand and competition to do online marketing, a real estate broker might get overwhelmed on where to even start his or her online portfolio. This is where a Real Estate Virtual Assistant becomes a valuable asset. These are some of the benefits in having a real estate virtual assistant.
- They are contractors
Unlike your full time hired staff, virtual assistants are contractors. Agonizing over trivialities like bringing someone new on board along with the required tons of paperwork is a thing of the past.
- They are less costly
Since they’re not a part of your on-board staff, you aren’t responsible for their taxes and insurance. Also, in the eventual circumstance of employment termination, you won’t have to deal with the unemployment insurance policy.
- They work remotely
The word “virtual” pretty much sums this up. Their working space is far away from yours. This way you have more office space that you can utilize for more productive uses.
- They are versatile
Virtual assistants are flexible to any type of working schedule. This includes doing work part time, working on a sole project, etc.
- They are able and ready to go
Unlike the investment you have to put in an on site assistant for things like training and additional managing, hiring a virtual assistant is cheaper, time and resource-wise.
Intriguingly, real estate agents have shown quite a reluctance towards outsourcing a portion of the work they do. Only when they get to the edge of the cliff, realizing they can’t do it all, they succumb to the bitter reality – they need help. Being a real estate professional isn’t doing a job that just “works for you”, but rather fashioning a career that serves you as a businessman.
