- Put yourself out there.
This may seem like the most obvious tip, but it needs to be said. If you want to market your services, then you actually have to put yourself out there. Put your sign in the lawn, pass out business cards, make a website. Marketing starts with you being proactive.
- Make sure you have an online presence.
Everyone uses the internet to access information, that means when they go looking for you, a search engine is one of the first things they’ll try. Make sure you have something for them to find. You don’t have to have your own website, but a professional blog or Facebook page is a good start. Put up your picture, phone number, email, messenger – make yourself as easy to get ahold of as possible, and be social!
- Word of mouth.
Usually, when someone goes looking for a real estate agent, they’ll ask their friends who they would recommend. Word of mouth is the oldest, and still most effective, form of marketing. It’s important to make a good impression, even if it’s on people you’re not working with. Say hello, shake hands, tell people your name and what you do, it can make all the difference.
