Real Estate Press Release Leads. Although many agents don’t take advantage of them, press releases can be a way to build your brand,
and advertising your business while highlighting listings, sales, community involvement, updates about your company, etc.
A successful real estate press release can reflect your business approach, company 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 constructed in a way to result in a desired and specific outcome - more leads and sales!
Realtors, agents and companies put out press releases in varying forms, typically projecting a positive image of the agent, or company. Such is the case of the company Cendant wherein touted in that one of their press releases that were 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.
When utilizing Press Release Services there is no guarantee of miraculous results. In fact, the only thing that you can be sure of is that it will inform readers of it is what you, as a real estate company, or agent, can do for them
with regard to their real estate needs - selling properties, finding real
estate investment properties, leasing real estate, repurposing current real
estate assets, etc... and that in and of itself can be priceless!
