Create Valuable Content

People from Generation Z are harder buyers to please. They want valuable and entertaining content or you lose them. Fun and creative content that adds real information to their lives are very appreciated. Some content ideas include:

* Make a professional and short video tour to one of your properties. Find good aesthetic music for your video and now you have TikTok-quality content.
* Behind-the-scenes content where you show your viewers the things that clients don't usually see. The funnier the better.
* Using kinds and pets in your videos will add a lot of traffic. Be creative and think of a way to use a pet in a video. For example, you can show a dog inside a property to show that it's pet-friendly.
* Teach something that you think your audience doesn't know. They're mostly young, think about something you wish you'd known sooner in life and deliver it gracefully.

As you can see, TikTok seems like the total opposite of LinkedIn. It's a new way to see businesses. To see clients and sellers being humans and having fun. Don't be shy to try something new. This could be a fun experience waiting around the corner and the opportunity that your real estate business needed.
