Build Your Local Network
Don’t underestimate the power of networking in real estate marketing—offline real estate marketing in particular.
Building up trust takes time, and one of the best ways of doing so is by building up your local network.
Be active within the local community. Take part in social events that are happening in the area, and attend local meetings and charity events.
You could hand out business cards at various events, and try to get yourself featuring on local media if possible—an appearance on local television or in the newspaper could really help.
There are a few different avenues to go down. You may decide to launch ads on search engines so that when somebody searches for homes in their area, your website will appear at the top of the page in the form of an ad.
Of course, there’s the more traditional route too. with adverts in newspapers or on the radio, while social media ads are also an option.
Your target audience should influence the forms of advertising that you go for—where are they most likely to see your ads?
This should go hand-in-hand with creating a great website.
Get some great content up on your blog, from real estate tips to engaging information about the local area.
