Real Estate Press Release Leads. Although many agents don’t take advantage of them Press Release Leads can lead to more
business opportunities. The test is to ask veteran agents in your office if they have ever issued one and you’ll probably be told no!
Real estate marketing is similar to having multiple streams of income, but the focus is multiple streams of leads rather than income.
Press releases are one of many different lead generators that you use to generate enough leads to ensure that you have a long, successful career in real estate sales.
Essentially, press releases are free advertising means to get a message across about you and the services you offer, specials that you are promoting for the greater good of the community that you live in, updates about your company, etc.
A successful real estate press release can reflect your approach, company’s philosophy and whether you are friendly, reputable, trustworthy and dependable. It can say a whole lot about you in a few sentences.
But a press release is not magical. Instead,
it’s actually a serious campaign which is created in order to bring a
desired and specific outcome – and in the real estate world that is
leads, and more importantly sales. Actual leads and sales are the best indicators of how successful or not successful a particular press releases is.
Real estate companies put out press releases in varying forms and on varying occasions. Press releases typically project a positive image of the agent, or company. Such
is the case of the company Cendant wherein their October 2005 press
release touted that the system they are using was able to gather valid
leads of up to two hundred thousand which they were able to amply
distribute to their real estate agents.
They also explained the process of how they came up with the numbers and how competitive the lead generating system that they are using is, thus making them able to keep up with the market.
