Marketing Strategies for the Small Business Owner

Some of my favorite local businesses have been around since before I was born. Sadly, a few years ago, a favorite clothing retailer in my hometown went out of business. After a large famous discount retailer opened a store in this town, the small clothing business couldn’t successfully compete with it. So, this local business was forced to shut its doors. Whenever I see the vacant building this store once occupied, I think about the importance of advertising. If this business had launched a smart advertising campaign after the large retail chain came into the area, it might have survived. Do you own a small business? If you’re a proud entrepreneur, you need to determine several outlets to successfully market your brand. On this blog, you will discover the best strategies to advertise a small business.

3 Tips For Finding New Real Estate Leads

If you love exploring different properties and helping people find the homes that are ideal for their needs, a career as a real estate agent is an excellent way to cultivate these strengths. Whether you're a new agent or an experienced agent who wants to grow your business, it's important to follow up on leads for potential clients. Follow these tips to successfully locate new real estate leads.

1. Cultivate Your Existing Relationships

Some of the strongest sources of real estate leads are people who you already have a relationship with. This can include individuals you've previously assisted with a home purchase, people you have worked with, or even friends and family members. The goal is to cultivate your relationships without being pushy.

It's fine to let your network know that you're hoping to grow your real estate business, but you don't want people to feel as if they're only potential customers. Continue to nurture your relationships, even if your present network doesn't have any home buying or selling needs. If your current network views you as a trusted, competent individual, they're more likely to recommend your services to people (potential leads) in their network who do need to buy or sell a home.

2. Offer Useful Content to Potential Customers

An effective way to find new real estate leads is to provide useful content to potential customers. Customers appreciate professionals who provide them with helpful information; when they need assistance, they're more likely to contact someone who has already proven themselves to be a useful resource. They may even pass your content on to their friends and family members, opening the door to even more potential leads.

Some content that you might offer to potential customers includes information about the local real estate market, valuation tools for estimating property values, and high-quality articles that address common questions about buying or selling property.

3. Broaden Your Network

In addition to strengthening your existing real estate agent advertising network, it's important to take steps to expand the size of your network. The more people are in your network, the higher the likelihood that you'll encounter someone who needs a real estate agent or knows someone whom they can recommend your services to.

There are many different ways to broaden your network. You can volunteer, join a local community organization, or participate in recreational sports. Your efforts to grow your network don't have to be formal. Exercising, walking your dog, or attending a community event are all easy, casual ways to potentially expand your network.
