Many Realtors, like most companies, continue to market their businesses the same way that they have been for a long time. Possibly worse, many Realtors just market their business and their clients’ listings the same ways that their competitors do – and expect different or better results.
If you’re guilty of either of these, then we’re willing to bet your marketing strategy goes a little something like this…
- Put properties on the MLS
- Buy ad spots in magazines and newspapers
- Spend weekends holding open houses
- Call brokers and past clients for referrals
- Spam purchased email lists
- Add properties to website(s) and social media channels
Now, don’t get us wrong here. Some of these tactics are still necessary, but if they aren’t coupled with creative, effective twists, then why would a seller ever want to list with you or a buyer ever want to work with you?
Stop relying on the same tired marketing strategies as everyone else. Take some time to know your business so that you can then market it creatively and effectively.
We’re even going to give you some unique ideas that you’re most likely not using yet so you have no excuse to keep using the same ineffective, status quo marketing strategies.
