5 methods for marketing your Algarve villa in 2023
Use these 5 strategies to get more exposure for your Algarve villa this year.
1. Use SEO to maximise your Algarve villa's online presence
SEO — or search engine optimisation — is a strategy that involves writing and publishing valuable content that boosts your website to the top of Google’s search results. This makes your villa website more visible, ultimately increasing your bookings. SEO is a relatively slow burning strategy. It takes time to build up a bank of quality articles that reach the top of Google. But over time most businesses see excellent results when they implement an SEO strategy. If you don’t have time to create and implement an SEO strategy yourself, consider hiring an SEO specialist. Alternatively, use an Algarve property listing agency that already has an established website with lots of daily traffic.
2. Harness the power of social media marketing
Highly visual social media platforms like Instagram and Tiktok are ideal for showcasing your property. Here are six tactics you can use to get your villa seen on social:
Post regularly — posting at least once a day keeps your account fresh and gives you a better chance of being noticed
Follow Algarve businesses — help the social media algorithm understand your niche by following businesses with a similar clientele Use videos — video content is a great way to highlight the best features of your property
Go live — give potential customers the opportunity to tour your villa in real-time Focus on your best-performing channels — don’t waste time on channels that don’t generate engagement or bookings
Sponsor your posts — pay to promote your best-performing social media posts so they’re seen by more people.
If managing and promoting your property on social media is too time-consuming, social media marketing agencies can help. However, this can be expensive. It may be more cost-effective to consider a listing agency that already has a strong social following.
3. Create an email marketing list
Email marketing enables you to reach your potential customers as and when you want to. It’s a great way to share time-sensitive offers, prompt people to take a virtual tour, or simply encourage them to make a booking.
You’ll need to build an email marketing list before you can run your first campaign. Use the social media and SEO strategies above to shout about your forthcoming newsletter campaign. Include useful, engaging content and write great subject lines to get the best results.
4. Take better photographs of your villa
Hiring a professional property photographer to take better photos of your Algarve villa can have a big impact on your marketing efforts. Compare these double bedroom photos from an AirBnb property and our listing site. The price point and facilities are similar, but the images are very different:
