Julie,

In some markets, print in the newspaper and in magazine works really well. I see that you are in Florida, and in the markets where we have consulted in, print was a big driver for listings.  People pick up the newspaper and the magazines, and no they are not all old.  Studies have been done that in some parts of the country younger people are favoring magazines over being online.  It depends.  A

I don't market via Open Houses, myself. I market on the internet, just listed cards, the occasional ad in Homes & Land (mostly to be on their website), on social media.

To market our listings, having a showcase listing page on our website for the listing. Also the blog post is really a page about the listing- if you set up the category that way- you can market to the category page and it will be like having a single property website. 

Realbird is awesome! You can get some great leads from Realbird too. 

We also send out just listed cards, those will bring more listings. We do direct mail. It still works. 

Also having a branded app through through your MLS. 

Then there is Facebook - HUGE driver right now.

It is a combination of all efforts. However for my bank owned, my list of cash buyer contacts, is invaluable to get those buyers their before the home hits the market and pre market the home to them personally. The results is new listing under contract often the same day as they get priced and hit the market

Print ads are unbelievably yesterday. I don't know anyone that even reads a paper now.

I think you should seperate blogging to 'internet' & then go from there. It's a skill to get yourself ranked high for your own listing. That's talent.

I don't market my listings.
Buyers can find the house with the tools they have available.

I do market my solutions.
Many respond to the opportunity to see houses NOT advertised.
