If Someone Tripped, Unplugged The Internet, How Would Real Estate Be?

They say real estate is local, but the marketing of it better be way way beyond the town line borders.

The promotion far reaching and not limited. Covering, saturating more than just the immediate area where the real estate property listing is parked on the planet.

If someone tripped, unplugged the Internet, how would the real estate agent, broker promote the property listings?

Way way beyond the just the local market area? Because we all know, the larger the audience, the quicker maine images collection photothe property listing hops off the MLS conveyor belt. And causes another real estate sale to happen.

So marketing real estate using direct mail, print advertising, more creative signage and on broadcast / cable outlets.

Knowing real estate is a business first and last.

Your profit is in the expenses during the lean and mean years of belt tightening.

Making sure every real estate marketing penny is not wasted ammunition. To hit the largest target area possible, with a healthy frequency.

Shot up in the air to spark interest, create desire, cause action and get positive results.

You could still shoot, edit, and burn to CD real estate videos.

To mail out, to broadcast in your office with a monitor in the lounge. To use snippets on cable or to air from local broadcast facilities. You would still work harder than ever as the real estate professional. To make sure images were wider, clear, more plentiful. Shot from all the inside / outside angles for  maximum effect to showcase the place. maine welcome logo

Pretty as a picture images all the time collected. For your brochures, catalog, newspaper insertions. To put on the kitchen counter for open houses at property listings. The hand outs, take aways to be remembered, have shelf life.

To stay tattooed in the gray matter of the real estate buyer who is on the hunt. For a nest to call home in their price range. If you find the right combination and can make the banking work, it all to come together.

Presentation is still everything without or without the Internet creating the World is your marketing oyster for customers to connect with, engage.

farm yard ducks photoYour copy would still be full of detail to reinforce the photos, the layout, the use of white space and your print presentation for real estate listings.

But links to social media Internet sites of your online work would be missing. Time spent blogging reinvested in other avenues of promotion for the property listings.

The other real estate media options would be increased to fill the giant hole caused by whoever tripped,  unplugged the Internet.

Would not mean regressing to Caveman Realty's way to advertising the new property listings. That pop up with your real estate sign on them. To squawk about on the local grapevine and spread the word. So everyone knows what is for sale with your brand on it.

You would not have to revert back to smoke signals to broadcast the imagery, short copy about the new to the market listing. The ones you were busting out inside to tell everyone about that extra, extra read all about it. That caused buyers in the mood, market for real estate to crank their heads skyward. To learn the juicy details painted among the clouds. Selling the sizzle not just the steak means passion has to shine through no matter how you do your property promotion.

Don't forget, neglect the other marketing options for real estate listing promotion, information delivery.

Make sure what you do for real estate property and local area marketing pieces have all the band members playing loudly, sweetly. Give each a chance for solos. But most in time, harmonizing and supporting each other in the well rounded within your budget real estate property listing promotion.

Let me tell you a story. I have been asked to submit an entry to a film festival. They want the movie burned on a disc.  OMG I am insane. I am going to have to hire someone to do this. Why can they not use an entry from youtube or drop box. I am beside myself with this "burning issue".

Good morning, Andrew Mooers have I told you lately that I love your posts....  putting all of your marketing eggs in one basket results in a broken basket.... spread them out.... one method should complement the other....and WE SHOULD NEVER ELIMINATE OFFLINE MARKETING.... mail those postcards out and blog about them....then you will capture the local bunnies and the others all over the world....

CG ... You saved renders of the video right? Find the file size requirements, burn one of those and presto, no more tossing and turning, sleepless nights. Get a kid to help is always good advice.

BT ... RTZ would wane, titter and we would have a catalog of values like Sears used, we used to back in the days of Strout Realty. Media choices, see the merits, never neglect any of the marketing players on the bench. Get them in the game.

Andy, Barbara is right and so are you. All the eggs in one basket is foolish. It does take work and some just aren't willing to do that. Now you have me thinking about something I have been meaning to take on but have not had the push. Thank you!

Love the visual of something tripping and unplugging the internet. Can we please do that for a day?

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) almost 6 years ago

Lenn ... Thanks for stopping in. To flex the marketing muscles it means working the individual areas. Like a family, taking and spending time with just one duckling... it can be rewarded. As an exercise if all you had was the front roadside office sign with the reader board... if only you used craig's list. If only blogging was the outlet.. making sure you are using each fully. Know them all, use them all in the right mix for maximum payload results. It's like cooking, experimenting with dash or this or that in the kitchen. Make it spicey, memorable. But marketing is just part of what we do. Red flags dealing with the buyers or say the case of a seller fooling himself about having a real estate sale, making the move when it comes right down to it.

Would be a different approach to marketing no doubt if the internet was unplugged.  Think it is important to remember that the greater the variety in your marketing the bigger of an audience you will reach.  It's often hard to believe some people do not use the internet, but I know quite a few people that would fit in this category. These folks would prefer print media.

Gabe ... We are dependent, hard and wireless connected to the signal, the Internet is a big part of our daily life. (LOL)

JP ... Give the Internet crank a heck of a yank. And keep the momentum of the recycled electrons flowing and glowing brightly. For all to see, hear, remember.

A and J .... No power, light a candle. Throw a rock and cause a ripple. Less sometimes is more. Creative, passion does not have to have an electrical plug.

S and D ... The other marketing arms, tentacles should be working thought whether you have four bars, are wired for shock and awe with the Internet thought. Make sure the print brochures you hand out, direct mail, place at tourist information states around your region are doing their part in the heavy lifting. Your images are stellar, your details complete and sweet. The Internet, it is not all we have to lean on but seems all we do comes back over and over to that portal jump off. Like going to Walmart of Lowes, Home Depot for three or four visits a day. We need it... have become dependent. Like our customers.

LS ... Very true, good point. I find it hard to believe that video, the most misunderstood, under used marketing child is left on the shelf, sitting on the end of the dug out bench. But without the Internet, to ride on that would limit it's ERA win record.

SH ... Or having the green curtain intermission, the south of the border hairless dog with the goggles and AR logo tattoo.

MC ... Lean on your other mediastreams. They all add up, are responsible for a percentage of the marketing pie that creates your listing inventory, your sales result numbers.

RB ... Like doctors, lawyers, CPA... the further from town, somehow the perception greater knowlege comes with the higher bill for services. Live, local and marketing full throttle with passion ... if you provide that, why would a seller list many zip codes away. Luckily buyers have to come to town to buy the fixed position sticks and bricks, other property types, the dirt we peddle.

We find new ways to do the back to the basic marketing. Always remember the guy and gal in the audience... like the wife, happy customer, happy life.

It is not a matter of if it breaks but when it breaks. The Internet as we know it will implode within the next 5 years. I hope I am wrong. But too many signs point to it happening.

Andrew perhaps you can answer the question of what are the options for editing video of listings, adding background music and subtitles?  

Posted by Scott Godzyk, One of the Manchester NH's area Leading Agents (Godzyk Real Estate Services) almost 6 years ago

Andrew, the idea of losing the internet probably sent shivers down the spine of many here. Difficulty breeds diversity as far as marketing goes, so where there's a will there are plenty of ways and we use them around here daily! Thanks for sharing...this was interesting.

Posted by Steve Kantor, Best Agent Business - Virtual Assistance (BEST AGENT BUSINESS) almost 6 years ago

SG ... There is a buffet of video posts for making real estate videos tips and tricks. Pick the one you want to bone up, beef up on.

SK ... The scarier news is so many that have the Internet to tap and expand their reach into the real estate audience are wasting the opportunity. Because it was not here years ago. Slow to change and embrace keeps you analog in a digital world.

Give the buyers what they want, the sellers expect, the listings deserve. Video would be the most untapped rocket fuel if done right. Sadly it is not used but if you climb the learning curve, you will stand out all the more. Proof? Check the view count on the real estate video channel.

Lots of ways to use video too. Shake it up.

Andrew, we are so tied into the internet as a society that losing real estate advertising would be the least of our worries.  Transportation, national security, banking, energy, food and commerce are all intimately connected on the web.  Hopefully the powers that be can stay ahead of all the entities that are constantly trying to hack us.

That would mean "Back to the Future" with the old ways re-surfacing.  Of course, many would have to learn them as completely new methods of marketing!

Posted by Gary L. Waters Broker Associate, Bucci Realty, Fifteen Years Experience in Brevard County (Bucci Realty, Inc.) almost 6 years ago

Richie ... So true. If you really want all your marketing media streams to be as effective as possible it is a good exercise to focus on just one at a time. Break one out and give it a physical. For example, if you think print is dead and nothing fed to that stream, you miss out on the audience that uses print the heaviest or completely. If your buyer was blind, the video audio and your podcasts take care of his needs nicely. If there was no Internet for video links, still could produce video tours to make available through mail, broadcast Sunday mornings in a cheaper spot cluster ROS. If your front office yard sign reader board was all you had you would change it up religiously. Make each as if it had to stand on its own, pull its weight. Because each does. Think mobile whether you are or not. It is customer, not how you do the search hokey pokey.

PS ... You are right. You would still be using your tablet... the stone tablet.

BS .... We have four bars, speed of thought internet connectivity... but often our approach is unplug, recharge in Maine. Life without it for a spell to stop the World, get off the merry go round till the spinning stops.

GLW ... Not the ones that started out in late 1979 and remember oil embargos, 16.5% adjustable local lending bank mortgage rates. Those real estate savvy tried by fire real estate professional know how to survive, adjust their "sales" and there was no Internet. But there marketing a little closer to home, the audience was smaller like the reach. You had your out of town big city newspapers for the weekend splash that went dark like a flare sent up wearing out. The Internet means your office never closes, is online. You may doze but you never close. And you have to put 30% of your marketing effort into your area because they brand new out of state and country buyers love the low prices, the simple life but tell me more with blog posts, videos, local community event imagery and copy... before I parachute into your market to buy, kick some tires and then buy.

Are you showing, telling, taking the new to the area with you with videos, so they get to know you, what you and they will be doing for fun? Video great for the options.

I agree w/ Susan Haughton , losing the internet would be like losing electricity. and, yes, I could deal w/ it for a day, but that's about it.

But, to the broader point, diversifying your marketing is always the better way to go.  And, without the internet, I'd be sending even more cards and making more phone calls to past customers and realtors.

Debbie ... Good attitude... making use with whatever you have. Making what you have do the job and then some. The most successful agents go above and beyond with the available tools. Before, during, after the Internet should the plug ever be pulled for good.

Marti ... Thank you for the accolades. Means a lot!

Raymond ... I don't know, that copper wire is worth 3 dollars a pound scrap. Hard times make hard people. Let's leave it unplugged for a few hours. Like Sunday with no stores open so you have to spend time with the family not run the roads to start your week early or enjoy retail therapy. 

Carla ... You betcha. Still have your Polaroid black and white pull photos with 8 exposures. The kind you held under your arm, put on the defroster to get to develop winters when a property is unheated. Colder inside than outside. The days of walking in purchase and sale agreements, not using software or zipform to create them and just before fax machines. Then volume, step it up happened.

Hey Andrew,

I think we have to consider the possibility just like when the eletricity goes out.  I experienced the electricity out for almost 24 hours, and I had to keep working.  We adapt and we keep going.  We plan for the alternatives.

TL ... You need more than a phillips screwdriver and hammer to run a household, well rounded real estate marketing means add the tools your box with the blue R on it is missing... and use them daily. Woven in for maxium exposure, greater reach, with a healthy not obnoxious frequency.

JB ... Reallocated times spent doing other marketing methods would happen. It was the way it was before the information highway. But today we have freed up lots of busy tasks with pdf, scan and email and not slower options that take time shuffling the paperwork. Because we all know about the devil in the details.

EJ ... Carbon copy, triplicate is how... like the military.

PF ... Marketing should never be just local, fenced in and limited. That would be like you are the fastest runner in the race and not allowed to win. Don't throw your own results.

G X 2 ... Like losing the sewer or septic would cause back up and not going to closings, moving as many listings too. Keep your candles handy. Firelight blogging.. harnessing fire flies and carrier pigeons to deliver the daily blog posts.

The Internet, portals help warehouse the information online for instant retrieval. If you stock the shelves like a hot, fresh, fully varied tasty buffet.

It would make the world huge again! The Intenet gives access to consumers from literally anywhere in the world to what ever market they are thinking of moving to or investing in. Not only would the lack of internet slow results for realtors, but also slows the searches for consumers. You are correct in that we should not neglect the other avenues, but the Internet was a game changer that gives information and detail to consumers before they have to set foot on a plane. Looking through print ads doesn't give the same feel and I would think the amount of CD's you would have to burn and mail out would be a lot less cost effective in order to reach the same sized target audience necessary for a good pay off.
