  48. 48. Bookmarking Your Listings<br />
  49. 49. A Few Tips…<br />Advertise listings first – they’re your product<br />Every agent should have at least 10 listings they are actively marketing (they do not need to be your listings – ask someone in your office if you can “borrow” theirs).<br />Other things to advertise: relocation packages, first time homebuyers guide, “100 ways to get your home ready to sell”, etc.<br />Advertising “Free CMA” is so 1980’s – be more creative!<br />Must offer something of VALUE!<br />Google yourself and your listings – use Google Alerts<br />
  50. 50. And More Tips…<br />Do NOT “scream out” your listings!<br />Posting listings or other “advertising” on your Facebook PROFILE is a violation of Facebook’s TOS. Only use your Facebook PAGE for advertising.<br />If you are not going to engage with the community, don’t bother using social networking sites.<br />Advertise what sets YOU apart from other agents: “All of my listings feature text-to-flyer” and explain why that benefits the consumer.<br />Consistency in communication! Text to text, etc.<br />
  51. 51. Email Marketing<br />Be careful! Do NOT spam!<br />Allow for opt-in/opt-out<br />Don’t use too much html<br />Offer something of value – perhaps partner with a local merchant to offer a discount?<br />Don’t make it all about real estate – hyperlocal is better<br />You have 2-5 seconds to catch their attention<br />Don’t forget your signature!<br />

  70. 70. 3/29/2010<br />65<br />Summary<br />Video is coming to Real Estate. West coast agents are seeing this as the replacement of panoramic photos.<br />Just try it . The worst that can happen is you delete it and hire someone to help you. <br />Video allows you to convey more about the the product than any other form of advertisement.<br />
