We get all of our business through word-of-mouth. Why should my Title company focus on digital marketing with an agency?
We understand that Title Insurance is a relationship business and that much of your business is from word of mouth. But what we’ve found after working with Title Companies for many years, is that time and time again, tech-saavy agents and buyers are moving business and closings to Title companies with a more modern and professional digital presence. Many of the traditional title companies are being passed on because they don’t "look the part”. We can help. Learn more about our services.
We don't have a big budget, how can I see an ROI?
We understand that budget is a concern for any business. Many of our title company clients expressed the same concerns initially, now they are our BEST clients and refer us to their peers.
Should our website or digital marketing really be a priority?
Yes, absolutely! Did you know that 60% of consumers won’t do business with a company who doesn’t have a professional looking website or dozens of positive reviews? Even though Title companies rely heavily on referrals, the first thing that referral will do is Google you or your Business, you have to look the part or you may be losing business. Plus, the entire real estate transaction process is moving more and more online. This applies to home searches, real estate agent searches and yes, even searches for title companies.
We already have a website and it seems just fine. How can you help?
Unless you are just starting out, most companies already have a website. But, many are outdated, not mobile friendly, and not easily found by clients from Google searches. Also, they are not providing prospective clients with value-added content which helps the Company been seen as a thought-leader. We can fix all of that to build your brand, attract more agents and provide a more professional first impressions for agents to land on. Learn more about our web design services.
In the title insurance industry, we don't get new business from Google searches. Why should I care about SEO or content marketing?
The real estate buying process often starts online. Real estate agents and buyers are becoming more and more tech-savvy and they are looking to work with companies that are thought-leaders in the industry. By developing title industry specific content (articles, blogs, etc) Agents are more likley to come across your content and website on Google, Facebook and other digital and social media channels. Also, sharing content with current and prospective clients on your social media channels or via an email newsletter is a great way for your title company to stay top-of-mind with agents. Plus, you should be providing "social proof", that is, you want agents and buyers to see how many other clients are singing your praises. This comes in the form of having dozens of positive reviews online. Learn more about our content marketing services.
