The other day, I had a virtual meeting with the owner of a luxury real estate brokerage based in Dubai. They had approached us to create their sales presentation. The owner expressed some skepticism, saying, "The marketing team at my brokerage suggested getting a sales presentation done, but I'm not entirely convinced. We already attract around 250k people to our website every month, and our brand is quite strong. Can you help me decide whether we really need a real estate sales presentation?"
I understood their perspective because I've encountered many brands with a strong value proposition that question the necessity of outbound sales presentations.
In response, I explained, "Having a strong brand is definitely beneficial and can streamline lead generation and attract business. However, it's important to recognize that a sales presentation serves a dual purpose. It not only attracts an audience but also personalizes your offerings, demonstrates why you're the superior choice, and engages potential clients by highlighting your unique competitive advantages through storytelling."
I continued, "Considering you operate in the luxury segment, where clients expect tailored experiences, a well-crafted sales presentation can be instrumental in captivating and engaging them."
Once the owner was persuaded, we created their sales presentation. In this article, we'll detail the process of developing their narrative and subsequently designing it. Perhaps our insights will prove useful to you as you craft your own sales presentation.
How to craft a real estate sales presentation [Step by-step guide]
Part 1: Building the narrative + copywriting
Now, let's get into crafting the narrative for your real estate sales presentation...
Define your target audience and objectives: Whether you're catering to the luxury segment or not, tailoring your presentation to suit your audience is key. Determine your objectives—are you sending this ahead of a meeting or presenting it live?
Set the tone: Choose a tone that resonates with your audience—whether it's casual, elegant, professional, or empathetic, it's up to you to gauge what will be most effective.
Begin copywriting: Craft your narrative with care. Start by addressing your audience's pain points and incorporating relevant statistics. Avoid diving into self-promotion about your agency and capabilities right away; the traditional pitch style doesn't hold much sway anymore.
Finalize and review: Gather feedback and review the deck internally. This stage is crucial because once you move on to the design phase, making substantial content changes becomes challenging. Ensure the content is locked down before progressing to design.
Part 2: Designing of real estate sales presentation
In this section, we'll cover how to use visual storytelling effectively in your real estate sales presentation to reflect your brand.
Set a color theme: Begin by selecting colors that align with your brand's identity. If you have established brand guidelines, utilize colors from these guidelines to maintain consistency and reinforce brand recognition. Alternatively, if you haven't defined brand colors yet, consider leveraging color psychology to evoke specific emotions and perceptions. Opt for hues that resonate with your desired image—whether it's conveying luxury, fostering casual conversations, or projecting professionalism—choose colors that align with how you want your audience to perceive your brand.
Determine a design style: Your design style should complement your brand identity and resonate with your target audience. For luxury brands, steer clear of whimsical or cartoonish design elements. Instead, opt for sophisticated imagery that reflects the elegance and exclusivity associated with luxury real estate. If you have access to your brand imagery, prioritize it for brand authenticity. Regardless of your brand positioning, avoid overly casual design styles for real estate sales presentations, as they may undermine the perceived professionalism of your brand.
Design the sales presentation: Maintain consistency throughout your presentation while incorporating varied slide layouts to keep the audience engaged. Enhance visual appeal by integrating high-quality images, icons, and infographics that complement your content and reinforce key messages. Strive to strike a balance between informative content and visually captivating elements to create a memorable and impactful presentation.
