90 Days To Real Estate Success

By | Marketing Strategy, Realtor Marketing

Over the past 16 plus years of working with Realtors® I have been part of and seen dozens of different approaches to starting a career in real estate; some successful and some not. Like any business, the most important things when starting as a Realtor® is to have a marketing plan and a budget. Getting your license is the easy part. Creating a viable, sustainable business is where the hard work is required.

I learned a long time ago that it takes about 90 days for any marketing initiative to bear fruit which means whatever is happening in your business today is the result of what you were working on 90 days ago. With that theory in mind, I think you need 90 days to launch or relaunch a real estate career. It is tempting to try and do everything in the first week, but a measured approach with weekly milestones will ensure you’re not missing any key steps, that you are building towards a goal and you are implementing a plan rather than flying by the seat of your pants.

I compiled ideas from many different sources and added my own experience to create this E-Book titled 90 Days To Real Estate Success. It reflects the measured approach I recommend and while the tasks and events are laid out by week, they are not etched in stone. Use this as a guideline to ensure you lay a strong foundation for your real estate business. If you need some help along the way please call Mike Blaney at 604-618-5512 or 1-800-568-8338.

You can view the E-Book using the flip book viewer below. There is an option to download the pdf, but you can also click here for your own pdf copy.

NEW Virtual Assistant Service For Ubertor Website Users

By | Marketing Strategy, Realtor Marketing, Ubertor

Life as a Realtor® means unpredictable demands on your time and a few things can suffer; listings are late getting on your website, they are not optimized, your open house feature sheet is the MLS sheet and your website is out of date and barely ranking in searches.

Over the last 16 years of working with Realtors® we have helped hundreds of clients by providing the following ad hoc services:

  1. Updating their websites with new content and  photos
  2. Creating eye-catching colour feature sheets for open houses
  3. Creating effective Just Listed and Just Sold postcards
  4. Blogging to improve search rankings
  5. Adding listings that are optimized and have a chance of appearing on page 1 of a search for the address

We know these services are so important to your business that we have bundled everything you need into a monthly package that will free you up to do the important things for your clients. None of these plans are cast in stone so we can custom tailor the services to meet your needs.

Some of the services included are:

  • Updating content on your website as required
  • Listing optimization
  • Branded Open House Feature Sheet
  • Real estate blog posts
  • Stylized listing photo for Facebook and Twitter

How Can a Realtor® Create or Identify Their Brand?

By | Branding, Realtor Marketing

How Can a Realtor® Create or Identify Their Brand?

There are five things you need to identify to form your brand.

1. Identify What You Value – Your personal brand is ultimately a reflection of everything you value. So take time to really think about the things you value in your life. List them. Make sure the values you identify are truly your own because you must believe in and live by them every day. These values will become the foundation for your brand, as well as your personal mission statement.

2. Identify What Makes You Unique – With your values as your foundation, the next step is to determine your specific uniqueness. Everyone is unique and special in some way. How are you different as an individual? How are you unique? And how are your products and services different? Incorporate this uniqueness into your brand.

3. Identify How You Want To Be Perceived – Branding is about other people’s perceptions of you. You have the power to control most of these perceptions with your actions and presentation.

4. Identify Your Specialty – Are you the neighbourhood expert? Are you an experienced real estate investor? If you want to be branded as the best value-added salesperson, then you have to bring extra value to every client or prospect meeting.

5. Identify Your Target Market – The goal of branding is to build customer loyalty. As you’re creating your brand, you need to determine your target market and speak directly to them. You want people to think that your brand will make a difference in their lives, so it must be meaningful to the end user.

Now Write Down Your Brand

Once you have identified the things that make you unique, you can weave them into a brand identity that will make you stand out from the crowd. You have to actually write the statement. A brand is a phrase that jumps out at you from the page and grabs your emotions.

By branding yourself, you separate yourself from the crowd and create a greater impact – for you.
