If the proof of the pudding is in the eating, then the proof of good content is an assertive real estate Call To Action or CTA that compels consumers to click, tap or give their information. A good one will drive your target leads to action, and a bad one will just be seen and forgotten once the targets leave the website, never to return.
What is a Real Estate CTA?
A CTA invites a site visitor to act on something you suggest, i.e., click here now. You see it everywhere, on social media pages and videos. For example, in content marketing, you would find after a blog or a vlog (video) post there’s a CTA to go to a service page, a product page, subscribe to a newsletter, or monthly listing updates. Any action you want your target customer to make moving forward from the content or towards their buying or selling real estate journey.
Like in putting up your website and strategically planning your digital marketing, you must define the reasons for your real estate call to action:
- Is it to attract more home buyers and sellers?
- Is it to increase subscriptions to your monthly market analysis and listings?
- Is it to nudge your audience to move forward to a virtual home tour?
Defining the reason for the CTA greatly impacts how and what it looks like or reads. The best ones are often short and sweet utilizing strong verbs or action words.

Strategically place the CTA on a blog, social media page, or web page where they will see it even before your text content is finished. This will invite them to take action immediately. You can place two kinds of CTA on the same page for different purposes. One mid-page for subscriptions or ebooks or vlogs (linked to explainer videos). And another CTA for home tours and bookings. It’s good to have one or two clear and concise offers per page.
Real estate CTAs have the important role of taking your target clients to the next step of their journey on the services you offer. Be assertive and use verbs that evoke instant action. Make them appealing by invoking emotions – fear, hope, and enthusiasm. Be confident that you are giving them the services that they need through your CTA.
