Get Creative with your Real Estate Marketing

Marketing your real estate doesn’t have to be hard. Lucky for you, we are providing some inspiration here for you to help get the creative juices flowing. Using high quality graphic design elements, alittle creativity, and quality and professional commercial printing, you can create a winning real estate marketing campaign. Below are some quick tips to help you get started, before you hire a design or start sketching yourself.

Represent Yourself

1. Find Out Who You Are Marketing To. Are you looking to market yourself as the Home Town Neighborhood Agent or the Upscale Property Expert? Do you want to target First Time Buyers or Premium Commercial Clients? Answering who your target market is will help determine how to market and how to build your brand. Your marketing brand will include flyers, postcards, informational packets, brochures, CD and DVD’s and other marketing material.

2. Be You and Not Like Everyone Else. Many agents use the same formula when creating their Real Estate Marketing material. Call it “mediocrity in three parts.” The first part is the agent’s photo, the second part is the carbon-copy message, and the third part is the “call today for a no-obligation consultation.” Seriously. Give your potential clients something unique. Just make sure that you are staying true to step #1 and knowing your market.

3. “I can save a little money and do it all myself”… Wait! Don’t do that. Creating a brand requires professional help. Consult a local graphic designer and commercial printer to handle what they do best…making high quality marketing materials.

Take alook at some of the examples of creative printed brochures, postcards and other marketing materials from the real estate industry as well as others and use it for inspiration on how you can market to your potential clients.
