Sell your house online with much more response? This is how to do it!
”We got rid of our house in no time.
Even at more than our asking price!”
Selling your house can be done in many ways. Of course you can sell your house by yourself. You take some photos, put a ‘For sale’ sign you pieced together by yourself in the front garden and that’s it. And then the waiting starts. Or you choose a full service and call in an estate agent.
But whether you sell your house with or without an estate agent: you want to sell your house quickly. At the best price possible. So you think to yourself: how do I handle this in the best way?
But then the penny drops. You realize how important it is to draw attention to your house. In a unique, striking and yet professional way. Locally, in your street and neighbourhood. And most of all, you do not want to disappear between the many offers on the internet.
The solution? A clever promotion for selling your house, through the approach of 12linkme that has proven to be successful.
Selling a house successfully within 2 to 3 months through 12linkme is the rule rather than the exception!
What makes the approach of 12linkme unique? Possible buyers only remember your house and simply pass it on to others! Read more on how to approach that…
Do you turn out to be a top house salesman?
Selling a house is easier in one region than in another. Because for example, the demand in London or New York area is bigger than in, let’s say the peripheral regions around it. But it doesn’t matter where you live. When you put your house up for sale, you want to get rid of it as soon as possible.
And it doesn’t matter if you call in an estate agent or if you organise the sale of your house yourself. It’s all about finding that one buyer that’s just right. The one wanting to buy your house at a price that makes you happy. Because all top salespeople know: for every house there’s a buyer. You just have to reach them in the masses. With a better promotion!

Cross your fingers for sales results?
And when your house is finally for sale online? Then all you can do is wait. Wait for that single message from that one interested person. Cross your fingers? Bite your nails? Browse Pinterest for days for inspiration for your new home? What matters is getting people interested to visit your home.
But do you realise that on average in for example the USA about 5,000,000 houses are for sale? And Zillow.com is one of the biggest real estate sites in America. Offering no less than 300,000 to 400,000 new properties for sale every month! Same examples are there for the UK. So:
“Every month, on average approx. 750-1,000 new houses are offered for sale in your region within a range of 20 km!”
Huge! So much new offers in your region on the most important real estate sales site. Making your house sink lower than page 5 in a few days!
So you need to make your house ‘visible’ again. Usually, your estate agent or that real estate site tries to convince you to spend extra money. ‘Top home’, ‘Rank your home up’, ‘Premium advertisement’ and much more of these paid services. Just making your ad visible a little while longer in the top positions.
When you do, it will have some effect. But not for longer than a few days. In no time your real estate ad has disappeared again. In the lower ranks. And then what?
Turn your house into your own unique online shop window
It’s not easy to really stand out between those tens of thousands of other real estate ads. Because the houses you see there all have their own advantages. A big garden. A refurbished kitchen. Enough bedrooms. A new boiler. More sustainable through solar panels…
In short, you need to make your house stand out in a clever way amongst all these offers. So anyone seeing your house can find it easily online. And can pass it on immediately to his network.
Without any diversions caused by other properties being for sale in your neighbourhood. After all, you want the new buyer of your home being particularly fond of your house. So it gets all the attention. Even when you are living in a region with a big demand!
Therefore, always follow the golden rule – rule number 1 - for successful sales: never send your clients to your competition! Therefore, keep potentially interested people away from the homepage of your estate agent, Righmove.co.uk, Zillow.com or Zoopla.co.uk. On these sites you can search directly in other offers. That's too much competition!
Whenever possible, an interested buyer should land directly on the page of your home. But who remembers the URL www.state-agent-website.co_uk/for-sale/province/region/town/postal-code/street+99/12345/summary of your online home presentation? It’s impossible. Isn't there another way?
Stand out! Even among a massive offer supply. You do it with 12linkme:
Take your creativity up a notch...
Imagine. You want to offer your home for sale yourself. On a website you created yourself. Which can be reached through an easy to remember URL. But then you do have to be kind of an IT-nerd.
Could you succeed in throwing together such a website yourself ‘just like that’? Do you actually want to take the time to do it? You still need a professional For Sale sign. Not very simple, even tricky. That’s why there’s 12linkme.
Make the regional network work for you
What it’s all about: as many people as possible must know that your home is for sale. Everyone in your surroundings needs to see it immediately. And in a way that they can view your home directly on their mobile. Without searching. And can pass it on easily to their network. All the sooner you’ll reach your potential buyer!
Super important, because real estate figures worldwide show:
In 87% of all cases your house is bought by interested people from your own region
(your street and neighbourhood)!
And you’d rather only want serious reactions? With preferably a visit as soon as possible... By real people being genuinely interested in your house.
Because they saw it while passing by. Or have seen all data online. They became enthusiastic. And made an appointment with you with high expectations for a visit. Because those candidates will eventually be indeed prepared to pay a good price.
YESSS! Use the force of offline promotion
So it’s all about every potential interested buyer in your neighbourhood seeing for himself how well your house is maintained. How beautifully it’s located. How wonderful the environment is. And it’s FOR SALE.
Now the people having seen your house ‘in reality’ are enthusiastic... great! Then you only have to make sure that they can simply indicate your home to any potential interested buyer.
The solution? Reinforce the online promotion of your home. With local, catching offline promotion.
You do it with 12linkme:
Figures speaking for themselves!
Below you see per sales channel the average amount of people interested in a home over a three month period.
The figures are based on the experience of thousands of 12linkme promotion sellers and recent figures on the CTR (click-through-rate) and the number of page views of the concerned online sales sites.
Number of interested people per sales channel in 3 months
Facebook post = 250 friends x 7,8% organic reach* x 1,4% CTR = 0,3 interested people
Ebay or "Right move" = 90 days x ca. 6,2 views every day x 2% CTR = 11 interested people
With 12linkme = 90 days x 12,1 views every day x 4% CTR** = 43 interested people EXTRA!
* Usual Facebook posts have an organic reach of 2,6%. More personal messages, like those offering a house for sale, are liked three times more because of peer pressure.
** The CTR of 12linkme is estimated conservatively as being the number of people being really interested in the house when they enter through the 12linkme domain name and often also have seen the house in reality.
So these figures show unmistakably that:
“12Linkme boosts with better offline promotion the number of people interested in your house by at least 490%!!”
Not to mention: with other online sales channels you disappear into the background. To page 5 and lower. Making you practically invisible for new house hunters! Then remember that your 12linkme domain name keeps standing out for new people seeking a home. Every day an offline top position in your region and network!
So: go exclusively for gold!
You may only sell your house 3 to 4 times in your life. Only enter the game maximally prepared! Go for gold! Give yourself a crucial advantage with a 12linkme promotion.
