Marketing for the (BIG FISH)

Industry Observer

It takes a large amount of time, money and patients to Market for the (BIG FISH). I have been buying Investment Properties for over 20 years and have been selling Real Estate in Las Vegas for 9 years now. I started in Residential for the first three years and then moved into Commercial, Land and Investment Properties.

I do still sell Residential, but that is mostly to Relatives. On my wife’s side there are approximately 250. I would be crazy not too. The (BIG FISH) is around the corner for me, it has been read in my cards and I can just feel it. Commercial Properties can take a very long time 6-12 months, sometimes longer.

I push out approximately 5,000 business cards per year, some post cards and other mail outs, two different magazines, pens, two newspapers, one in Burmese, 6 websites and post at 4 different networks.

Some Brokers and Agents say, Why do you waste all your time and money on all this advertisement? I don’t really listen very much any more about what the Brokers and other agents say, I am doing just fine. I have a very large group of Investors with very large portfolios from all my advertisement and it takes a long time to build trust with them. The (BIG FISH) is coming real soon from all the google juice and getting my name out there.

So in the mean time as I wait for the (BIG FISH), I never let my line loose and continue to feel for the big jerk and then I will set the hook.

I also have picked up on some of my old talents from so many years ago. From studing Art, Photography, Writing and Music for over 30 years now.

Most of my “Dreams” have come in my life except one that I am working on right now! I have always “Dreamed” of converting a small Commercial Building into a Art Gallery where I can display my Art, Photography along with other artist’s from around the World.

Sound like a Dreamer? Maybe, maybe not. We will see in the next couple of years.

I am also in the process of publishing 2-3 different books in 2011, wish me “Luck”!

Until next time … “Love, Good Fortune, Success, Good Health and a Long Life”

PS – Here is a cute Video with some really (BIG FISH) and if I can hook several of these fish I will be a very, very Rich Man … ;o)

Hi Bob - I agree. Consistent and persistent marketing will pay off.  Sporadic marketing is simply a waste of money.  Especially in these times when a lot of Realtors have been getting out of the business, it is important to let the public know that we are still here and ready to help them.

VB, I have no doubt that you will one day have an art gallery for the abundance of photography and other art that you have created - and I hope I can come to visit it :)

VB - You're on your way to becoming a big fish, I can feel it - you're on the map and you've worked very hard to achieve this goal! I also think "Dark Side of David" will be a best seller! Just remember - you knew me! BTW - the opposite of a slacker is Vegas Bob!

Thank you so much Joan for stopping by, we go back a long way at AR!

And Susan you are so right, what a wonderful comment, with so much truth attached to it!

Frank & Sharon, most of my work at AR has been my photography, and I have a wonderful talent for painting which I haven't really shared very much at AR. And I do believe that I will have a gallery soon in the future and I would love to have both of you come and visit.

Georgina - Yes patience is a virtue and I have developed so much patience living with my Burmese family, it has really been a eye opener.

And my new wonderful friend at AR Kristine, I am kind of a "BIG FISH" already I am just wondering which direction I will swim next. I am patiently waiting for my book to be published and then I think I will be directed towards the direction of growing into a HUGE fish ... "Thanks for Stopping" ... ;o)

VB ;o)
