Writing down your idеаѕ will help you think through each аѕресt of rеаl еѕtаtе marketing, and it will help you dеvеlор your actual rеаl еѕtаtе marketing ѕtrаtеgу. Real еѕtаtе marketing does not have to be hard. It саn be аѕ simple аѕ уоu want it to be.
Part 1: Farm: The first step in starting a rеаl еѕtаtе marketing program is to know your target market, your farming area. Learn to identify the optimal farming area and apply your marketing efforts to it. Absorption rate, turnover rate are terms you must become familiar with when determining your Farming are.
Part 2: Message: We start with what we call Power Statement (a.k.a Value Proposition) that defines what you are, problems you solve and how you solve them. This is the what feeds your marketing content. Then and only then we start creating content
Part 3: Media: Define your HUB and all the satellites distribution media that bring leads to it. From social media to P.O.P material to flyers and postcards, they all must be pointed to a HUB of information that provides Farm's leads with your Message.
Part 4: Lead Capture: If you haven't focused your marketing on educating your audience you are just wasting your resources (time, money, people). Lead Capture is all about educating your Farm, not about you but what you do and WHY you do it (Tip: people buy for their reasons, not yours).
Part 5: Lead Nurturing: Consistency, service, timing, relevance, value-added, community involvement and resilience are the ingredients to your lead nurturing system. Above all, measure your efforts and adjust according to results - or lack of..
Part 6: Lead Conversion: It's all about what problem you solve, how knowledged you are about the processes and your selling and closing skills. Don't start applying your marketing plan until you've done your required formal and informal education on the profession itself otherwise you will lose that lead that you tried to convert with your excellent marketing plan.
Part 7: Referrals: Reciprocity and Trust are the magic ingredients of referrals. Customers won't refer friends and family to help you solve your problem, they will refer them, so you help them solve their problems, and Customers will only do that if they trust you AND they feel the need to reciprocate the excellent service you provided (Law of Reciprocity). Tip: Have you taught your sphere of influence about sending you Referrals?
