Segmenting your visitors allows you to direct them to the most relevant content on your site.
If they are a prospective landlord, there is no point in getting them to browse your current listings!
Example: Liberty Blue
People love video (and so does Google, so it helps with your SEO), so give them what they want!
Make sure these are easy to watch on all devices too, as most will be watching on mobile.
When potential clients visit your website and see you displaying your listings in a very high standard, they will get an insight into how their property will be advertised if they go with you.
The days of logging into the back-end and adding properties to your site are gone. You should have your site set up for listings to come directly from your CRM or from Daft/Myhome.
This greatly cuts down on time spent adding listings to multiple platforms and ensures a uniformity of your listing across all platforms.

When visitors come to your site, what do you want them to do?
Do you want them to book in for a free valuation? Do you want them to leave their details so you can call/email them back?
If you don’t ask, you don’t get! Make sure to have forms and calls to action on your site. This allows you to capture prospective clients’ details to bring it to the next step.
