7 Best Passive Marketing Ideas for Real Estate

7 Best Passive Marketing Ideas for Real Estate

There are a multitude of passive ideas to help you in the marketing of your real estate business, but these are seven of the best. All can be had for a minimum of cost depending on which route you take, and you can have most in hand, in days, if not hours.

  1. Shirts, hats, scarves, workout gear – any clothing that will passively advertise that you are a Realtor, or real estate professional.
  2. Mugs, cups, and various kitchen items – these are must to have for yourself, and make a great gift for clients, and farm prospects.
  3. Pens, pencils, and other office products – great for your own desk, but like mugs, make great gifts to give to clients, and prospects so you are always out in front of them.
  4. Bags and carry-alls – a great item to use at the store, farmers market, or just to and from the office. Not only can you use one to passively market your business, but you can have them branded to your business to market yours. A great gift for clients, and prospects alike.
  5. Jewelry for men and women – there are a LOT of items in this category, and all make a great way to market your real estate business, and your success.
  6. Automobile items – you can passively market your real estate business, by using such items as license plate holders, stickers for the car, and even car wraps. Driving your farm, or a new neighborhood, everyone will identify with you being a Realtor, or real estate pro.
  7. The last item is a great way to passively market your business, after the sale. Letting your clients friends, family and colleagues know who helped them buy or sell their home, and in hoping they may call you as well. Items such as cutting boards, plaques, various artwork and other client gifts.

These are just a few of the creative ways that you can market your real estate business, and not spend a lot of money doing it.

You Need These if You are Listing Vacant Homes

Not everyone can afford to have a Supra box, or similar for every home that they list. In cases where you are an agent who lists a lot of “as is” homes, or homes in distress, using a Supra on each one can become very expensive, and really I would think would be unnecessary.

Usually here in my city, I see these types of combo locks being used most of the time. They are efficient, easy to maintain, never need to be updated, or replaced with new software, and they just work. Sure, there are a few drawbacks, since you have to email, or call with the combination, and agents like me sometimes forget to write it down before a showing, but the locks themselves are pretty infallible. Unlike agents that is!

If you are an agent, or perhaps a broker or builder, who lists many homes like these at one time, then buying in bulk is a great way to save some money. The bulk cost for these, sounds like a great deal, compared to buying individually. But like I said, I don’t really use them in my business, so you would need to be the judge.

There are many styles of these types of locks, and manufacturers, and you will see a list of many that Amazon offers for sale below. This is just one of the many bulk locking system deals that I saw.

If you are looking for a beautiful gift to give a great client at the closing table, this is a must consider. Perhaps you are visiting their new home, after closing, only stopping in as a guest, then this would be a sweet present to have in hand. Either way, this soon to be cherished gift, is at a price point that will not break your budget. Yet giving one of these as a gift will still let your client know how much you enjoyed having helping them with their real estate needs.
