In the world of real estate, a sales lead is almost never dead, no matter how old it may be. Because a home sale / purchase is such […]

Developing a Personal Brand (That Potential Customers Will Remember)

People don’t recommend run-of-the-mill real estate professionals to their family and friends; they pass along the names of agents that are standouts. To achieve that kind of status, you not only have to be uniquely talented, you also have to establish a unique personal brand.

A personal brand not only projects a positive image, it also […]

How to Make a Name for Yourself in Company Meetings

Company meetings are a great place to boost your image and impress the boss. Yet many professionals today totally overlook these opportunities. Consider using one or two of the following tips at your next conference-room gathering.

Leave your phone at your desk

It’s annoying to whoever is speaking when the other meeting participants are distracted by their phones. Be the only person who comes without their phone, and the personal connections you make by simply staring the speaker in the eyes will pay off big down the road. The best way to make deeper, more rewarding personal connections at work is to make those around you feel heard, understood and respected.

Be positive

When the boss uses a meeting to introduce a new program or a big change, most people at the table will immediately start thinking about the negatively impacts. It’s human nature. To set yourself apart (especially in the boss’s eyes), react positively – but without making any commitments you can’t keep. Say something like, “I’m intrigued by this. I’m going to gather my team first thing tomorrow morning and start brainstorming implementation plans.”

These Postcards Get the Best Customer Response

If you’re an Xpressdocs client, you know that marketing postcards are one of the most efficient and effective ways to promote your business. According to the latest Direct Marketing Association study, direct mail generates an average of $7 in sales for every $1 spent on the marketing medium.

But, of course, not every marketing postcard can be a hit. What separates the winners from the losers? Postcards with the following attributes almost always get the best customer response:

Attention-grabbing introduction – People are busy (just like you). So if you don’t grab their attention in the headline or first sentence, your chances of success will drop dramatically. Suggestions: state a question, present a compelling fact, or lead off with a special offer.

Clear benefits – Instead of simply stating a feature of your product/service (“experienced work crews”), tell the reader how that feature will personally benefit them (“experienced craftsmen who aren’t satisfied with the job until you’re satisfied with the job”).

Real Estate Marketing Tools: The Twitter Savvy Real Estate Agent

Social media is an important real estate marketing tool, and Twitter is no exception. The fact that Twitter limits posts to 140 characters makes it easy for users to follow trending topics and offers the ability for consumers to connect globally. That’s why using Twitter in your marketing plans is crucial for lead generation and networking opportunities.


Holiday Marketing — Social Media Marketing During the Holidays

Real estate agents know that the popularity of social media has grown tremendously in recent years, which is why any holiday marketing strategy must include effective social media marketing as well. Consumers increasingly rely on social media to get information about deals, as well as to learn more about products and services.


If Your Real Estate Marketing Plan Isn’t Working, Try a New Method

Agencies often continue to use the same real estate marketing plan year after year, even when that plan is no longer working. The problem is determining which marketing plan achieves the best results. Answering that question is equivalent to saying blue is the best house color, sport utility vehicles are the only cars worth driving, or Sprint is the best cellphone service provider. Although those statements may be true for some, they may be completely wrong according to others. Choosing your real estate marketing tools depends on the surrounding circumstances and situation specifics. It also depends on the message you want to send and the audience you are trying to reach.
