WSI Marketing Program for National Real Estate Franchise Brand Development

The WSI team reviewed extensive marketing studies on the Weichert® brand and studied, in great detail, the challenges of independent brokers trying to grow. This  dictated the website content strategy, visuals, and overall marketing plan, which was developed in close consultation with the marketing team at Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. .  The Weichert program includes both Organic Search Engine Optimization, and a sophisticated paid advertising approach that leverages standard PPC, multiple types of display and remarketing, and Social Media advertising. The goal is to market the key differentiators of the Weichert Franchise System which include:

  1. A sophisticated, high technology online lead generation system for real estate agencies.
  2. Best in class systems for real estate agent marketing and real estate broker marketing.
  3. A proprietary real estate CRM system called WeichertPRO®
  4. Systems for real estate agent recruiting and retention.

Through its elite national branding program, WSI customized a content strategy for WREA through on-page and off-page activities. Using our unique and proprietary techniques of Search Engine Optimization, WSI conducted an in-depth semantic study in order to better understand how customers search for terms related to “brokerage management” and “real estate franchising”. These key search terms were then correlated into the website through strategically written web copy and imagery.  WSI’s National SEO Program will also produce quality blog, graphical, social media and video content to syndicate on external web properties including TumblrWordPressBlogger, and Weebly in addition to several other proprietary content distribution platforms.
