The Power of The Press ! Never Fake News Here | Great Way To Brand

As you know, I’m a fan of print marketing. The most attractive feature of newspaper marketing is the FREE PRESS RELEASE, and I make full use of it. 

 

We had a ¾ page press release for the Month of May, in our Local Town Pages newspaper. It’s a monthly newspaper that’s mailed to every residence and business in the town of Franklin. That’s great exposure for FREE, and you can’t miss it. It’s almost a full page!!!

 

This is a press release I created for the month of June. The more visibility a real estate agent/team receives, the stronger the branding. Press releases are FREE. Take advantage of them. I’ve been doing that for years and it help tremendously with branding my name.

 

 

I can remember, as a newly licensed agent, submitting a press release for the “top referring agent” for the month. I think I sent two referrals, and that WAS the top in the office for that month!! Just the thought of it makes me laugh, but I was determined to let everyone know I was in real estate. That was in 1978. I received feedback from that press release, and I never stopped using them from that point on!!!

 

Just another thought for the moment….

Morning Barbara.

No one can argue with success, trouble is most agents in my area concentrate only on social media.  Pity
