Effective Headlines to Make Money in Real Estate at Maximum One

Powerful Headlines to Make You Money – by Dana Sparks

 

When you market your listings, be sure to use powerful headlines & titles to catch the Buyer’s (& Co-Op Agent’s) attention!  People want to know more than the “bricks & sticks” information…. number of bedrooms, bathrooms, location, price.  Buying and selling homes is emotional so use some emotionally-charged words in your flyers and descriptions.

If you want the reader of your real estate home advertisement to actually read it, you need to elicit that desired response from their reading of your headline. Though I don’t think it’s the end-all of answers, a tool I’ve found useful is located at the Advanced Marketing Institute website. Check it out to assess the Emotional Value of Headline Text Tool  You type in the headline you’re thinking of using, and the site gives it a score for how effective it is in using words with Intellectual, Spiritual and Empathetic impact on readers.

The score is a percentage representing what they call the EMV, or Emotional Marketing Value of the text. According to the site, good professional copywriters use headlines that consistently score between 30% and 40%, with the most gifted scoring between 50% and 75%. I can tell you that it’s very hard to hit that level in our business. However, you can definitely keep most of your headlines between 25% and 35%.

Additionally, here are some ideas to help you:
