Real estate lead generation is an easy task, but are they quality leads? Most marketers usually struggle to generate quality leads that convert. So, what is a quality lead? It is a lead that, if nurtured, can convert. Or in simple terms, a person with the intent and the means to buy a home is a quality lead.

Let me take the residential real estate business in Chennai for instance, almost every brand is using Facebook lead ads to generate leads. If an audience is looking for homes in a particular area there are nearly 4-5 similar ads that appear on their timeline. So, the fact is that quality leads are available but who ropes them in is what matters. 

If you do certain things right then Facebook lead ads can be among your top lead generation techniques. I have been performing facebook ads from its dawn. I have worked with 30+ Top Real-Estate Brands in Chennai. I would say that the backbone while performing Facebook lead ads is having a thorough understanding of the audience.

Real estate is an intent-based service. So, the ads you create should not only grasp your audience but also induce an impetus for them to click the CTA. You have to optimise the headline, the creative, the ad description and the ad language, to match the persona of the audience.

I would like to mention some of the ad campaigns that converted the most for our real estate clients at my Digital Marketing agency, echoVME Digital. Since I had the first-hand experience in the creation and performance, let me dissect them for your understanding.

Let’s go!

#1: Tulive GK Shetty:

Lead Generation Ad Sample – 1

Lead-Generation Ads for real estate

Introduction

Dakshin by Tulive GK Shetty is a cluster of residential apartments in Porur. The core of this lead ad is based on the price factor, the location, the time of hand over. 

Ad Media

We used a simple creative that highlighted the price and the location of the property. The colour we used for the price band was based on the brand colour, this will trigger a sense of relatability.  Also, the ad included a clear and eye-catching high definition image of the product.

Ad Text

In the ad text, we added all the key elements that sell to the targeted audience. The checklist format with the special character allows clarity of information-flow from the brand to the audience.

Headline

The headline here says, ‘apartments starting from 66 Lakhs @ Porur’. It clearly conveys the ad goal to the audience, i.e. Apartments, 66 Lakhs and Porur.

CTA

The CTA given was ‘learn more’ leads to the landing page which asks to fill out a simple form.

Takeaway: The key takeaway from this ad would be the crisp points that highlighted the benefits of the product.

Facebook Lead-Generation Ads

Takeaway: This lead ad was done for the same client (listed above). The intent of the ad is also the same as the previous one. The only thing that we tweaked was creative. Here, we used interior images as it proved to get more leads for us before with a particular set of audience.

This proves evidently that even the best of the best lead ads wouldn’t perform well if it is not projected to the audience in the right way. 

#2: Urban Tree Infrastructure:

Lead-Generation Ad Sample – 1

Urbantree facebook lead generation ads

Introduction

Urban tree apartments in Urapakkam is a group of affordable apartments. The main focus of this ad lay stress on the pricing and the location. The main selling point here was the offer and the validity that created urgency.

Ad Media

Colour red was chosen because it is the brand colour, to induce a brand recall among the audience. Also, using the building elevation has also proven to create a sense of relatability; so, we used the elevation.

Ad Text

The copy ‘Choose Urapakkam the next Koyambedu’ throughs light on the importance of the location. The price difference is also shown in order to let the audience know the intensity of the offer.

Headline

The headline meant to convey the theme of the ad. Here the aim is to sell using the offer price. In the above image, you would be able to see that we have mentioned the amount one would be saving if they avail this offer and also the offer validity. 

CTA

The CTA given here is to sign up. when you click the button would lead to a form. Potential lead has to fill the simple form and the customer representative will reach out to them.

Takeaway: Take away here would be the detailed information that we had provided and the sense of urgency that we had created. The interval between the ad reaching the audience and the offer validity is a very limited period.

Dac Lead-Generation Ads

Introduction

DAC promoters’ gated community apartment in Guindy is the 1st gated community in that area. Also, the closeness to the airport is also the USP for the apartment.

Ad Media

The grandness of the image displayed in the ad itself is one of the action-driving factors. you can just look once and ignore when the image is captivating. You would want to know what is so special about the product/service.

Ad Text

The ad text clearly explains the location, pricing and the uniqueness of the apartments.
