▶ Our Thoughts of this episode:
From talking to many clients, a lot of them find investing in SEO and SEM effective. But, most of them tend to work with agencies instead of DIY. Since there is so much to understand and to do (such as writing contents), many real estate professionals tend to outsource. I wish this episode talked more about the technicalities such as keyword searches and how to create contents based on the target keywords. I also would like to learn more about the pros and cons of investing in SEO and SEM, compared to investing in social media platforms.
