Content marketing statistics — the big takeaways
This shouldn’t come as a surprise: the biggest thing you should be taking away from these statistics is that a well-documented, consistent content marketing strategy absolutely needs to be part of your overall business model.
Consider this: 90% of home buyers look online to find their next home, and 70% of them will be getting a sense for who you are through your online content. And by content, we don’t mean ads. we mean the inbound marketing materials like blog posts, videos, case studies, ebooks, and other content that you produce.
The content you create, curate, and share is the single best brand ambassador you have. Too many real estate marketers take a passive approach to their online reputations, rather than taking control of this goldmine of a resource. Content marketing is about using your expertise and what’s special about your brand to become a resource for your audience, and to generate leads by developing meaningful and lasting relationships with your prospects.
