      Once upon a time in real estate land, agents used handouts as a large portion of their business marketing.

      Today’s real estate consumer demands and expects “value” from those with whom they do business, even down to the stuff they get free.

      While handouts may seem unnecessary to you, they’re actually an effective marketing tool to increase engagement and perfectly complement your marketing strategies.

      Real estate handouts cut out the middle-man or woman

      It’s probably not much of a stretch to claim that the average real estate agent will never make it to page one of Google’s search results for the most common real estate search terms, organically.

      Instead of going after that holy grail, the marketing experts at clientexpand.com suggest advertising within the sites that do show up on page one. An example would be Houzz.com.

      While that may make a nifty addition to your digital strategy, we think it’s best to cut out that middle step and go direct to the consumer.

      Mortgage Options Direct Response Report
      Some possible topics for real estate handouts
      How to use real estate handouts

      Handouts can be one page (a typical flyer) or multiple pages, depending on the topic and your goal. Many agents find that direct response reports make ideal flyers.

      Use them in:

      • Pre-listing packets
      • Listing presentations
      • Buyer packets
      • On your website
      • On doorknobs
      • As direct mail pieces
      • On windshields in parking lots
      • Use digital copies in your emails, on your blog, in your newsletters and as social media posts

      Offered consistently, real estate marketing handouts not only supply valuable information to homeowners or tenants but cement your brand as the area specialist.

      Going after baby boomers? The ideal handout to offer them is the direct response report 3 Easy Steps to Pain-Free Downsizing.

      And, right now, you can get 100 Baby Boomer prospect list contacts for FREE – For 3 MORE DAYS!

          Welcome to the world of real estate, you soon-to-be-wildly successful agent. Your spanking new license, hung with a broker you probably just recently met, is your ticket to the big bucks – or so the story goes.

          Between now and then, you may be hungry. You may be frightened about the future. You most likely will be financially challenged. Your sole focus will definitely be on securing one client – one deal – to help you stay in business long enough to get to the next one.

          The ideal vehicle to get you to that deal – indeed, the very bedrock of your nascent real estate business — is personal branding.

          Creating an impression, and the reputation you will eventually build, combine to generate your personal brand. Constructing your brand is job number one as soon as you’ve hung your license. Everything else falls into place once this is accomplished.

          Read on for three essential tips guaranteed to help you fire up the iron and stick it strategically to your hide.

          1. What makes you Remarkable?

          “Unique” is a word that gets tossed around a great deal when it comes to discussions on branding. Among real estate agents, however, commonalities are more obvious than differences.

          Let’s face it; the basic duties of every real estate agent are the same: you list homes, fill out paperwork, show houses and act as your client’s intermediary.

          This is where personal branding comes into play. What makes you different from most of the others? Perhaps it’s your education – an agent with a Juris doctorate or even a staging certificate has an angle that many other agents lack.

          Previous careers often play into an agent’s branding efforts as well.

          As a former TV news anchor, Bob Sokoler with Re/Max Properties East in Louisville, KY is undoubtedly the best real estate video producer among the agents in the area. It makes him stand out, and he uses that as part of his branding.

          Answer the following questions to help determine what makes you different:

          • What are your interests and passions? What motivates you?
          • What are your strengths? What behaviors, attitudes and abilities have consistently produced positive outcomes in your life?
          • Consider your education and previous work experience.

          Get clear on what makes you remarkable. Those qualities, those aspects of you, are what will keep you from being a dime-a-dozen agent.

          Then, state those qualities, commodities, or even quirks in a declarative statement that helps you get a handle on your brand. “I am a high-end real estate agent giving the sophisticated consumer a stylish and tailor-made real estate experience,” wrote a luxury agent.

          2. Who is your Target Client?

          Radio DJs are taught early in their careers to get a clear image of who they’re talking to every time they open the microphone. They’re told to imagine one person and to speak directly to him or her.

          Define your target client. It may help to create an actual profile of this person. For instance, if your passion for golf has led you to decide to concentrate on golf course homes, your ideal client is, obviously, someone who plays a lot of golf. Is he retired with lots of spare time or a weekend warrior that hits the links as soon as the tie comes off? Golf isn’t cheap, so this client most likely has disposable income.

          Once you know who your target client is, you’ll be in a better position to start thinking about how you’ll brand yourself to attract this client and others like him.

           “A brand has to resonate with the target market by standing out in the sea of sameness, and fit like a glove based on one’s personal preferences,” suggests Ron & Alexandra Seigel of Napa Consultants, International

          3. Try it on

          You know what sets you apart, you have a handle on the types of clients you’ll attract, now you need to try some stuff on and see how they fit and how they’ll be perceived in the marketplace.

          “Are you flashy, edgy, comforting, or sophisticated? Does that fit the consumer base you’re looking for?” asks Seattle broker Sam DeBord.

          The “feel” you want to promote dictates how you’ll build the basics of your brand, such as “logos, fonts, colors and graphics that fit the theme and relate it to your customers,” DeBord says

          Once you’ve found a good fit, you’ll need to build that brand into your website, blog, business cards, brochures, and everything else that makes up your business’s public face.

          “Not every agent can be the top salesperson in town, but each can find their own branding niche:  dog-friendly agent, houseboat sales team, modern design brokerage, stone-cold investment-negotiation expert,” DeBord explains.

          “Then find visual guidelines and a business process to inform your specific customers that you are the right professional for their needs.”

          What will you be known for in the marketplace? It pays to take the time to figure that out.

          Are you ready to go after a specific generational niche? If so, create your targeted list HERE, then launch a scheduled Campaign in just minutes.
