Six Ways to Market on the Internet

For the last ten years, I’ve told commercial real estate agents and brokers that the Internet will not sell for you. I stand behind this statement. During the dot-com boom, it was proposed that you could sell everything over the Internet. People loved this idea because it took away their need to work at selling their services. The thought was, “If I just develop a good Internet presence, I won’t have to do all the work I currently do to sell.” We all found out this wasn’t true.

The Internet is a very valuable resource though. It won’t sell for you, but I’ve found that there are currently several great ways to generate leads for commercial real estate clients on the Internet. They include:

1. Website: You need to have a personal website. In our training videos and classes we share with you some tips on how to quickly get one going. They are cheap and easy to create these days. If your website is going to be a lead generator, it needs to offer your ideal clients resources that they can access for free or for a price. To produce a lead, you simply require some form of registration in order to access the resources available.

2. Email: I do not advocate huge email blasts to people with whom you have no relationship (otherwise known as SPAM), but there are many other ways to use email, including auto-responders, opt-in newsletters, endorsed offers sent to other people’s lists, and several other ways. When you send out email, make sure it offers good education or information. I suggest that the content not be contained completely in the email. Instead, the reader should need to click a link to access the information. The link then takes them back to your site or to a place you would like them to be. This allows for good tracking of your marketing efforts and creates better traffic on your site.

3. Search Engine Placement: You can pay to be listed at the top of the list for any set of “keywords”. This means that when someone searches for information on certain terms, your listing comes up at the top. This is a great way to drive traffic to your site or to a site that makes a specific offer to your potential clients. Check with the major search engines for more information on key word advertising. Over time, you can work to achieve high “natural” rankings for those same keywords.

4. Advertisements on other sites: This can range from reciprocal links to banner ads, pop-ups and pop-unders. If there is a site that your ideal clients frequent, check to see what linking or advertising opportunities exist on that site. One tip I can give you is that your ads should not simply be for you or your service. Instead, post ads for information, such as lists, reports, books, and more. Potential clients are much more likely to click on a link offering a free list of investment opportunities or available space than they are to click on a link that simply has your name and picture.

5. Article and information submission to online news and information outlets: This is very similar to a traditional PR campaign that submits articles and information to print, radio and TV outlets. The main difference is that you are submitting to online newsletters, industry sites, news sites and anyone else who is sending information to your desired audience. You can also self-publish this information by posting these articles to your own site or connected to your site. Either way, the goal is to create more ways for people who are searching for information and services you can deliver to find you. As was already mentioned, we offer a wide variety of articles that can be submitted.

6. Social networking sites: Much like networking in the real world, online networking can be a great way to meet people who can either become clients or refer you to clients. No different that networking in the real world, online social networking requires a fair amount of work for it to pay dividends. Networking online also has the added benefit of providing more ways for people to find you online, which provides a lot more opportunity for you to market using the previous five ways listed.

A well-rounded Internet campaign will use each one of these methods to contact potential clients and generate leads. Ask yourself, “How many of these methods am I using?”

Expanding Your Business With Commercial Real Estate - TDogs.com

 

One of the most pervasive myths is that commercial real estate is difficult and takes years to break into. Thousands of real estate agents have discovered that they can expand their existing business with commercial real estate transactions quickly and easily. They also discovered that they love doing commercial transactions because they are interesting and the money is really good. Plus, they have proven that they can get the results their clients want.

 

That is because they discovered that all of the old barriers that kept them out of commercial transactions are gone. In the past, the mainstream commercial companies controlled the information and resources and that kept residential agents out of the commercial markets. That means that these residential agents left thousands of dollars in commissions on the table.

 

For you to earn big money in commercial real estate you don’t need to go to a mainstream commercial house or to set up a commercial practice, all you need to do is to ask your clients about their commercial real estate needs. How many of your clients own their own businesses, want to start a business, or have a position of authority in a company that occupies commercial property? How many already own or want to own commercial real estate? All you need to do is to tap into the commercial real estate needs of your existing clients.

 

To do that you need the fundamental knowledge. And luckily you can get that knowledge quickly and stop leaving your commercial commissions on the table for someone else to pick up. What that really means is that you can dramatically increase your income by tapping into the big commissions that commercial agents routinely earn.

 

To learn more, check out the Top Dogs programs which are instantly available via streaming video with e-book manuals. Or on DVD with a hard copy of the training manual. Both include downloadable property and financial questionnaires and client requirement assessment tools.

5 Steps to High-level CRE Success

Like, Share, Discuss Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditlinkedinmail

Five CRE Success Strategies

1- Bring Them the News – Identify changes or a new trend in your market service area that your prospects need to know about. Then narrowcast this information to them. Start by making calls to them with important news to share, and why they need to know it. Also use Youtube, a webinar, or a podcast to narrowcast your message.

2- Communicate Confidently – Know your song well before you start singing. The only way to develop a confident communication style is to practice, roll play and get feedback on your practice. How you say something always speaks louder than what you say. Wrap your message in stories to make them engaging and memorable. Be passionate about helping your ideal client and let your passion show.

3- Get Competitive – Commit to being the top cold-caller in your firm for a full month to generate new, solid leads. Then build relationships with those leads. It takes 5 to 8 contacts to build trust. Structure your lead follow-up to ensure 5 to 8 contacts within a few weeks. Do this by always leaving them with a promise to do something for them, and then fulfilling on your promises. Follow up, and remind them that you are keeping your promises.

4- Create Certainty – Clients are looking for a FEELING of CERTAINTY that if they work with you, that they will get what they want! For them to get this feeling, you must build your expertise. Webster says an expert is, “a person with knowledge, skill and experience in a particular field”. Adopt an intense approach to education and training to master the basics. You need to get better and smarter, fast. This is the only way to harvest the lifetime value of the account.

5- Be an Athlete – Develop the attitude of top athletes. Nobody practices the fundamentals more than the professional athlete. It’s all about constant improvement in the fundamentals. Sharpen your skills daily.
