This is my presentation for Real Estate Tech South (RETSO) 2011 in which I discuss the need for real estate agents to create a strategy for their business. Starting with the analysis of past business (business audit) agents should be able to follow along and move through the "data mining" and profiling of their clients - ending with the creation of a "cross platform" marketing strategy. Additional files and spreadsheets can be found at www.scribd.com/mattdollinger

  • 26. So the question becomes – does all of our Tweeting, Facebooking and Four Squaring actually bring us business?
  • 27. My hypothesis
    Agents are spending too much time on “other” activities than those that bring them business. (i.e. Business Sourcing)
    The “cool” factor of technology and social media has caused many to abandon tried and true marketing tactics. (i.e. Cross Platform)
    Due to our multi-tasking society most do not approach their business and marketing with a clear cut and defined strategy. (Strategy)

    A lifestyle is a characteristic bundle of behaviors that makes sense to both others and oneself in a given time and place, including social relations, consumption, entertainment, and dress. The behaviors and practices within lifestyles are a mixture of habits, conventional ways of doing things, and reasoned actions
  • 41. 4 Types of Graphics we want
    psychographic data refers to any attributes relating to personality, values, attitudes, interests, or lifestyles. They are also called IAO variables (for Interests, Activities, and Opinions).
