Why Isn't Your Property Landing Page Converting?

Why Isn't Your Property Landing Page Converting? (+ How To Fix It)

What do you do when your landing page isn’t generating the real estate leads you need? Read on to find out how you can solve this problem!

No amount of advertising can help you close on a property business if your landing pages aren’t doing their jobs. 

At times like this, it’s important that you take a step back to assess what is and isn't working in your landing pages.

1. There’s too much written content
2. Your landing page design is distracting
3. Your CTA isn’t convincing enough
4. You haven’t built trust with buyers
5. There’s no urgency

1. There’s too much written content

It’s easy to go overboard when creating a property landing page for your campaign. 

You want buyers to be impressed with the new condo launches enough to reach out, and this can sometimes mean overstuffing your page with information, offers, and technical jargons. 

However, when buyers arrive on your page, they want to easily and quickly find what they are looking for. Too much clutter, competing calls to action (CTA), and information can either distract, overwhelm, or bore them enough to click out without taking any action. 

As such, rather than helping your landing page conversion rates, packing in too much content can actually keep you from converting.

How to fix this: 

  • Keep your content focused and simple. Only include what is absolutely necessary to get your offer across to buyers. 
  • Filter out the fluff and make sure to use plain language. If you want to keep their interest, write in a way your target audience understands. 
  • If you have more than one offer, consider creating a separate landing page for it. 

2. Your landing page design is distracting

The layout may be another reason why your landing page is failing to collect leads. 

When designing your property landing page, you have to remember that most page visitors are using their mobile phones. This means including too many features and elements will only get in the way of navigating and accessing the page. 

With only 8 seconds to make an impression on a landing page, visitors won’t stay to explore if you have off-putting designs. 

How to fix this: 

  • Once again, simplicity is the way to go. Remove everything besides your essentials.

3. Your CTA isn’t convincing enough

One of the most crucial aspects of landing page design is the CTA. Unlike your page’s content and design, keeping your CTA simple will only come across as uninspiring. 

Users will probably bounce without converting if they’re not motivated to take the desired action. As such, using repetitive and dull CTAs such as, ‘Book Now’, ‘Submit’, ‘Get In Touch Now’, or ‘Contact Us Today’, will not get you leads. 

The problem with these CTA examples is they don’t offer buyers any information on what they can expect after clicking. 

Think about it – would you hand over your information if you don’t know what you’re getting into? 

How to fix this: 

  • Make sure your CTA button is visible enough. Its design should stand out among the overall page. You can do this by using contrasting colours. 
  • A/B test your CTA to find out if it’s working for you. 
  • Your CTA should include your offer’s benefits. Try something like, ‘Schedule A Viewing Now’ ‘Speak To Our Agents Today’.

4. You haven’t built trust with buyers

Trust is a key component in driving conversion. 

This is why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that most prospects need to trust your company before disclosing their personal contact information. 

You need to create a connection with your visitors and make them trust you before you ask them for something. 

But building trust when you only have one page and a precious number of word count can be difficult. So, what can you do? 

How to fix this: 

  • Show elements that serve as proof of your credibility. This includes a short section on buyer’s testimonials to put the minds of your prospects at ease. If you’re worried about cluttering the page, try considering video testimonials instead. 
  • Show a map of your location and add in your contact details. 
  • If your property marketing agency has won any awards, don’t be afraid to put those up on your landing page too – just be sure not to take more space than necessary!

5. There’s no urgency

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments we make in our lives. 

This means there’s a lot of thought buyers put behind taking the first step to carry out this decision – which is to leave behind their contact information. 

So, while they might find your offer interesting, why rush? They can always take their time to think this through before coming back later, right? 

However, if prospects leave now, chances are they won't return. Their first visit will be their last. 

As such, it’s important that you create a sense of urgency to give them a nudge in your direction. 

How to fix this:

  • Use the scarcity principle. By telling prospects the number of remaining units available, you can encourage them to reach out or lose their opportunity.
  • Put up recent sales notifications to show prospects how many buyers like them have committed. 
  • Use countdown timers to indicate how much time is left until your offer expires. Deadlines persuade buyers to act now instead of waiting.
