|Old School Community Spirit! |
|Agents need to mix things up in order to compete in today’s market.|
It can be overwhelming trying to figure out where to put your marketing dollars these days. You should embrace social media and electronic newsletters but it’s also important to use some of the “old-school” marketing techniques.
Access to information has obviously been a game changer for real estate agents which is why it’s more important than ever to constantly keep in touch with your past, present and future clients but you should also focus on “going local”.
Knowing your local market is critical to your success. Make it your goal to get really familiar with your local market and focus on specific areas in your community so you can offer superior service and unsurpassed knowledge to your clients. That’s what’s going to set you apart from other agents!
Despite the advent of the Internet, real estate is still a relationship business and even though social media has changed the nature of relationships, it’s still critical to get out there in person for some good old fashioned face-to-face contact!
Sponsoring a local kids’ soccer team for example is a great way to get your name out there while also helping a great cause. Volunteering on a local community committee is another great way to help others while meeting potential clients.
Adding local market stats and community events to your website, newsletter and social media pages will help show that you’re the go-to local expert who loves where you work and live but it’s important to employ a multi-pronged approach. Don’t forget to get out there and show your community spirit!
|The Trick to Generating Leads on Facebook |
|Advertising on Facebook can be extremely profitable, if you know how.|
For the last little while, I’ve been busy mastering the art of Facebook advertising and let me tell you, it wasn’t easy. That’s actually a huge understatement!
Facebook can be an extremely cost effective lead generating machine! It’s basically like a faucet that you’re able to turn on and off at will but if you don’t know what you’re doing, it can be a complete waste of time and money.
If done properly however, you can be the proud owner of a Facebook page that boasts thousands of targeted Likes and generates dozens of highly qualified buyer and seller leads each month.
I’m ready to hit the ground running with this new skill and I’m looking for a few agents to join me! If you’d like to supercharge your presence on Facebook, please get in touch with me right away to reserve your spot!
