Ideas for Multi Faceted Marketing Events
In my last post we talked about the concept of adding a little extra effort to something we are already doing to create something bigger than the original event. We are leveraging our business and adding “facets” to every thing we do in real estate in an attempt to touch more people and create more impressions.
Adding additional facets usually has little or no added cost, yet you are leveraging the hard work you have already done by getting the listing, writing the blog post, taking the class or earning the designation. You are turning a single event into a Multi Faceted Marketing Event (MFME).
As promised here are some more examples: (F=Facet)
F1- Sign goes up (lots of new impressions)
F2- Just listed cards go to neighbors
F3- Follow up phone call to neighbors
F4- Place listing on company website
F5- Syndicate the new listing to popular
real estate websites
F6- Seller sees how pro-active you are
F1- Invitations to neighbors
F2- Add in local paper open house section
F3- Open house placement on your website
F4- Door knock neighborhood
Writing a Blog Post:
