Effective ways to promote your real estate business

Written by Posted On Friday, 22 November 2013 03:55

It is fairly logical to say that, if you want to make a name for yourself and become successful in the business world, you will have to rely heavily on marketing and promotion techniques in order to make your way to the top. Marketing has become the ultimate battleground for competitive businesses, because this how new customers are reached and some even won over from other companies. So, in order to be successful, you have to know how to play the game. In this article, I will try to help you with that by providing some very efficient ways to promote your business, product or service.

The all-important brand

The first thing that you need to understand is that you cannot get anywhere in the business world without a logo that will represent your company or your product. Simply, this is the image that you will be marketing to the potential customers and all the positive (and negative) traits will be attached to this image. You need to create a brand that is captivating and easy to remember. Easy-to-remember logos are among the most successful, as can be seen with various super-famous brands, like Nike, Adidas, Chevrolet, etc.

Always connect and network

Expanding your contact list and acquiring new acquaintances in the business world can never be a bad thing. Simply, the more people you know, the more people have heard about your business. Also, you can never know when some of those contacts will come in handy. Also, meeting people from the same branch will allow you to get an idea about what the competition is doing, how they are doing it, you can also ask for referrals and even form partnerships that will ensure mutual benefit. The options that networking provides are rather numerous, so, keep this aspect of promotion in mind.

Organize or attend promotional events

Promotional events, like trade shows, fairs, exhibitions and even seminars can be a great way to network with new and important people in your branch. You can organize these events yourself, and get into the spotlight for doing such a thing. If you do not feel like organizing something on such a large scale, you can always attend these events that are constantly organized by others, because that, too, will allow you to gain the benefits, if you are resourceful enough.

Make partners with another organization

Becoming “partners in crime” with another business that is in the similar branch as yours can yield very positive results in some cases. However, you have to choose a business that is more popular and more exposed than yours is, so that you could, basically, piggyback off their success. For example, Taco Bell, the ultra famous fast-food chain has recently made partners with much less known Doritos Locos, by announcing the whole new Doritos Locos Taco. This way, Doritos get to ride on the back of the more famous Taco Bell and whenever someone thinks of one, the other will also come to mind, which is great for Doritos, because a lot of people think of Taco Bell.


Speaking to some of the local promotional companies, like Pen Australia, I've discovered the power of free things. Seriously, everyone likes getting free promotional material, no matter what it may be. If you give people things with your logo on it, you can be sure that they will be happy and will remember your business when they have a need for it. If you give out things that are useful in everyday life (a pen with your logo on it, for example), you will increase the exposure of your image to the world and it will constantly remind people of your business’ existence.

Social networks – a new playground

There is much to say about the field of social networks and using them for promotional purposes. This can be done in many ways. However, I will not go into detail. Instead, I will just say that this has rapidly become the most widely used platform for promotion and that every serious business must take a piece of the social media cake, if they are to succeed in their promotion.

Promotion has become an ever-expanding game, whose rules are constantly upgrading. However, some basic things still remain the same. Hopefully, some of this general advice has helped you along your way to becoming a widely-recognized brand.
