Showing Off with Your Best Foot Forward

Make the Best Impression You Can

You only get one chance to make a first impression. Make it count. It’s critical to show off the best you can every chance you can get. Online, you can make sure of that. But, also when people physically take a look at your products.


Showing off your product or products relies on showing your product the best way possible. In most cases, great photography is a must. In the case of real estate, staging your homes is a critical aspect.

Good photography and great staging can be used over and over again from your website presence to social media to physically showcasing your products. A strong social media presence helps you get loyal, repeat customers and excited business partners.

Investing in home staging is one of the best ways to boost your online presence and reap long-term rewards. Staging doesn’t just make a measurable, marketable change in the perceived value of a home in person. It also makes your listing photographs stand out from the crowd. And especially in these times, it’s a property’s online “curb appeal” that will win or lose the greatest interest. 


Better photos means better offers. When you share these photos on your social media, it shouldn’t just be to announce the listing. Make a big “Sold” announcement and talk about how quickly the property received great offers. Share one or two photos at a time to make a point about what buyers look for in a home or what really made a certain home unique. This is a chance to show both your expertise and your fantastic track record.

There’s one more benefit of staging when it comes to your online reputation. When your properties sell quickly, at or above list price, because you staged—you won’t be posting as many price reductions! While these posts may help you sell an individual property, a feed full of price reductions doesn’t look nearly as appealing to new clients and partners as a feed that says SOLD.
