Websites like Zillow and Trulia have moved a lot of real estate interaction online. However, print pieces and promotional products are still valuable marketing tools for the real estate industry. With so much messaging on the Internet and social media, Realtors can make a more lasting impression with tangible promotional gifts and printed materials for real estate marketing.
Universal tips on printed materials for real estate marketing:
- Find out what your target market cares about most and include that in your wording and selections.
- Showcase your strengths and services in addition to the properties you are selling.
- Stay in touch with past, current and potential clients with personal gestures.
- Font, color, style and paper type matter. Base your choices on your target audience. Choose from metallic foils and luxurious papers for high-end markets, or green and recycled paper for first time buyers.
- Include your photo! It’s worth the time and expense to get professional portraits.
- Don’t forget to include a call to action on every item. Examples include your phone number, email address, and/or website.
- Include other real estate industry partners in your printed items. Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Title Companies and Home Inspectors depend on cross referrals.
