Real estate investing is not just about making real estate deals. Like any business, it is also about marketing yourself and your services. Marketing lets you find the people you can help and lets you uncover new opportunities as well. At least part of your business plan should involve promoting your business. Luckily for you, the Internet has made marketing much simpler and far less expensive than advertising has been in the past. If you want fast promotional opportunities that don’t cost a fortune, consider the following methods of promoting your company:
1) SEO. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is actually a process to make any online content more easily found with search engines. It works very simply. When Internet users search for information online, they typically use internet search engines such as Google. They type specific words into the search engine and get pages of relevant search results. By including the keywords that your potential customers are most likely to search for in your own web sites and online articles, you can direct more traffic to your online presence.
2) Newsletters. You can create one or more newsletters online to promote your real estate investing business. Send these newsletters regularly and include plenty of relevant, useful information for your readers. Newsletters are wonderful because they remind potential customers about your business without being too pushy. If your newsletters are very good, your leads may forward your newsletter to friends and colleagues, bringing you more customers.
3) Blogs and feeder sites. Blogs are online journals that allow your potential customers to get to know you and your business. You can post your best articles on your blog or create more SEO content. Best of all, your blog can direct people to your web site. Feeder sites are small web sites – often only one page – that direct Internet users to your web site. These can be a great way to get more clicks to your page and therefore get you more traffic.
4) Web 2.0. Web 2.0 refers to the “new” generation of interactive web sites. These include social networking sites. Many people use these for social interaction, but they are also very useful for promoting a business.
5) Marketing and PR companies. While you will certainly want to promote your business on your own, you will also at some point want to hire the best professionals you can afford to get widespread exposure for your services.
If you want to promote your real estate investing business successfully, use several levels of promotion and marketing to get the best results.
