Programming real estate digital signs.
You will see tons of blog posts on what digital sign to buy for real estate marketing out front of your office.
But the programming for real estate outdoor advertising digital LED signs. Not so much online for ideas and inspiration for how to use your electronic sign.
This blog post is all about programming your real estate digital LED sign.
Let's dig right in. You have invested a big chunk of change in the digital sign writer bought and planted to attract real estate buyers and sellers.
The LED real estate office sign is an ideal medium to be the local Paul Revere.
Spreading the news. Being the town crier. Letting locals know about community events. Used to celebrate a holiday, share the time and temperature. To welcome newcomers to your area rolling out the hospitality red carpet.
But like most media marketing, the use of each varies greatly. You don't approach writing a 2000 word real estate blog post the same as the short and sweet LED sign message.
Remember, less is more with programing your street front LED sign writer digital display.
The single image for five or six seconds says volumes. Like this weigh in photo for a soap box derby race event.
Tips for programming your real estate digital sign.
Thinking about the time of day the message is being splashed for passing motorists and how fast they are traveling.
A giant billboard or entire building lit up with LED lighting displays seen for miles around is not programmed the same as your much smaller sign display. Blip. You have only seconds to connect to make a lasting impression.
Old English font is probably not the one to select for your digital real estate sign display.
The color and size of your digital font and background better work together for a crystal clear appearance. Keep it simple, remember no one's eyesight is improving.
Confusion is the last thing you want to create for the "10" and "2" hands on the wheel, belted in tightly motorist zipping by your real estate office.
You have invested tens of thousands of dollars into your shiny new digital real estate sign and fresh new programming is essential.
Rotate in and out new listings, local news, a little branding plug or two. But make it worthwhile in whatever your LED display serves up to catch the sideways glance from your motoring audience.
Static images can make your LED digital sign programming look flat and weak.
Video loops if not too busy or flashy can add spark and excitement delivering your electronic messaging out front of your real estate agency. If you implement video for real estate already, shoot hyper local snippets to weave into your LED marketing message.
Check with local digital sign ordinances for your community.
In Maine, since 1974, we have no billboard clutter along our highways and byways. The local department of transportation in your jurisdiction has a say on do's and don't for size, programming, length of message, etc.
What works in your area just like the way real estate markets behave.
No two the same. Local sport teams is in the running for the state gold ball or tall trophy? Acknowledge that and go team encouragement should be in your digital sign programming.
Your town's farmers market, the Christmas or 4th of July, Veterans parade time.
Anything local is fair game to help promote in your local area courtesy of the LED sign out front that works 365/24/7 no matter what the weather.
No one knows the local area better than you the real estate professional who is all over volunteering, stepping up to serve. There is a big source of your digital marketing ideas for programming on your LED real estate sign.
Remind your buyers in the driving audience passing your real estate office location that getting pre-approved with a local bank lender is wise advice.
Ask the question "is your home way way too big"? Suggest maybe it is time to downsize. Or if the nest is splitting at the seams, could be a good time to up size.
Like to buy a vacation property, an apartment house, a woodlot or build a house.
You get idea, feed those real estate niche drivers passing by your real estate office. Today's real estate professional is all about media. Lots of platforms to feed, weed and water.Promote where the real estate listings are located and be all over the local community.
That is something RTZ can not do like you the local insider who lives, works and plays in your unique special community.
Are you digital or analog?
A real estate dinosaur doing the list, twist and sell the same old way REALTORS did back in the 60's.70's,80's or gone digital? Digital marketing with LED real estate signs is one more marketing tool to reach for today.
