I wanted to share the project that we're working on right now with the active rain community, particularly the students of marketing.
This is really the first time that we've applied our marketing style to a project development instead of a broker or agent.
We've structured this very much as a "Controlled Discovery" of the project that uses blog channels that are behind a registration to deliver a steady drip of content to the prospect.
We've had excellent response to the campaign with above average engagement and a list of very attentive buyers and other agents wanting to know the price … (2 comments)

marketing: Sharing your customers with your competition - 12/15/09 08:02 PM
Are they your customers? I recorded this for non real estate markets, it's something that is a hard thing for many "old school" business types to wrap their head around, but it's true and it is particularly true in the world of real estate.
Do you think that your customers aren't also surfing your competitions website? Ask them, I'm almost positive they'll tell you they use 3 or 4 different sites regularly because they like different features from different ones.

marketing: How Can Community Sites Generate Leads? - 12/01/09 11:54 AM
Why pay for water, when you could own the watering hole? How many phone calls have you had from lead generation companies that want your money every month to send you leads?
Why let them build all the lead generation sites and sell you the leads? Why don't you just build them yourself and keep the leads for yourself.
Or better yet!!! Sell the leads to other agents and keep the referral commission. Become one of those agents that produces a ton of listing referrals and just make your money letting other people close them

Seth Godin is no slouch when it comes to marketing and he published a blog post this morning that I thought really summed up what I've been trying to communicate with agents, but in a much more effective way.  (That's where the whole "internationally renown author and speaker" stuff starts to show I guess)
He speaks about the change of the relationship between marketers and audience, how it's moving from renting the audience from the media company, to owning your own publishing platform and audience.
He singled out real estate agents in particular in one of his analogies and here's what … (3 comments)
