As a real estate agent, I am totally bombarded with emails and classes of all the programs I need to sign up for and pay for to get my real estate marketing off the ground. I think I could actually take out a second mortgage on my home (if I actually had equity) to pay for all these "necessities." Where can I get the most bang for my buck?
I've been thinking a lot about those funny little codes in all the advertising I've seen around town. They're called QR codes or "Quick Response Codes". (see photo) Maybe you've noticed them and actually scanned them before. A QR code is a way that advertisers can get you to go to their website and use or buy their product. What if a realtor had a small website explaining the benefits of his or her services that could be accessed with a simple click of a button?
Now think of this...You are sitting in your car, in traffic, and you see a QR code on the advertisement on the back of a car in front of you. You scan the code because you are intrigued by the "new technology." Up pops a little video explaining why you should use the services of this company. The person in the video even prompts you to click on the video to call them right away to schedule your upcoming service! Are you impressed by the infrastructure of this company? I would be.
This is really simple to do. I am a real estate agent but I am also a graphic designer by education and trade and I now specialize in helping real estate agents market their businesses. Whatever I am doing for myself, I can help anyone to do. With a simple car magnet, splash page and a QR code. You could be picking up leads tomorrow while driving around on your errands.
Give me a call and within a week, I can have you well on your way to making your next "deal". Phone number (encrypted for anti-spam compatibility) 6two three - two two9 - three4 zero zero.
Marketing is a must for any business! Whether small or large, each company needs to put $$$ aside to keep new business rolling in the door.
For Real Estate Agents, there are a few who can live off of referrals for awhile. At some point, many of those "leads" find someone new or try the dreaded "For Sale By Owner" course of action.
I have a 15 year background in Marketing and Design. I graduated from Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri with a Bachelors Degree in Print Journalism. After honing my writing skills, I jumped head first into writing content for advertising, etc.
I now run City Girl Design, a design firm based in the Phoenix Area. I employ stay at home moms to help me with my design projects. We all work from home to keep our running costs at a minimum.
Whether you can budget a small amount for marketing or a large amount, I can help you spend it wisely! I will be honest with you about results and save you a lot of headache in the process!
