What is the lifeblood of your Internet Marketing efforts? If you said photos, you’d be right. The one problem is, you’re a REALTOR® NOT a photographer, so how can you be expected to take beautiful pictures of your listings? It would be different if you were a professional photographer, but you’re not.
Why are photos so important to your Internet Marketing?
Photos are the first thing that anyone looking for a piece of CT real estate will see online.
Many consumers will not look at any property that does not have photos.
Photos give the consumer a glimpse into a property before scheduling a showing.
SO, how do you take great photos that stand out from the pack?
Thanks to one REALTOR® member of the CT Statewide MLS who sits at the top of our list of leads generated from online sources, here is a list of the 7 Rules for Taking Great Photos.
1.) Take photos on a sunny day
2.) Take the broadest possible photos
3.) Shoot photos with a constant flash setting
4.) Turn on all lights
5.) Take photos of the room NOT the furniture in the room
6.) Put away personal and daily items
7.) Take close-ups of interesting details like fireplace/granite countertops/high end appliances
