If I did not have the Internet to market my inventory, I would do what I did before we had the Internet....offline marketing... networking.... face to face marketing.... print marketing.... signage...

The pre-1990 customers still exist and we reach them the same way we did  then. Direct mail and phone canvassing gets results but many associates avoid these methods these days. The main ingredients to success are planning and tracking all marketing then  different picture will appear..

Publish a mini magazine with all of our listings and information about the company, and distribute via direct mail, for one thing. Many more things. Most of us remember what it was like before the internet became a necessity. And most of us never stopped with the low tech stuff anyway. Because it works.

That would be easy - just use snail mail Andrew Mooers.  We have clients that are not computer savy, and not cell phone savy - it's funny, if it's not frustrating, but it can be a reality of dealing with some in our age-restricted community.

It is important in this situation to truly understand the logistics involved to be of service to this person. These are time-holes looking for a victim.

Obviously the portals of access are. post office, local rag, and "Avon calling."

We would still put up a sign ( where allowed), do just listed postcards, network with other agents who may have buyers for the property, open houses, broker opens. 

We would also ( which we don't do now) put an ad in the homes and land magazine.

One can be just as effective with traditional face to face interaction which works just as good. The technology Z, Trula, RF often do not have added value.  We could order car dealer cost ordering a report by mail and haggled with sales manager and it worked almost as good. Do you see closure of dealership, parking lot because of internet?  Heck, no.
