Your clients and prospects are bombarded by advertising messages every day, and each one fights to carve out its own place within their consciousness. With an overabundance of marketing channels, it is even more important in the digital landscape to stand out and get the attention of your audience and the answer may lie in the AIDA model - an advertising framework used particularly well by car companies like BMW to stand out from its competitors.
In the past, you (or your company) only had a few channels on which to market your services. These included direct mail, phone, direct fax, TV, radio and newspapers. Back then, you only had to compete for attention against other real estate agents.
Today, the media landscape is fragmented into thousands of different channels and with the rise of social media, you're not just competing for attention against other real estate agents. You're also competing for attention in the same newsfeed as people's friends, family and the causes they support. This has led many brands to explore a "new" approach to marketing. Well, new in the sense that it's been around for hundreds of years, but only now is it more relevant than ever.
On this episode of Real Estate Pros, we're going back in time to discuss how marketing was done in the 'olden days', why things changed when TV came along and why so many brands today are marketing like it's 1885.

From the major portals to banner ads, from websites to social media, there is no shortage of real estate agents and agencies with a presence on the internet today who are marketing their services and points of difference to vendors and investor clients. Let's face it, everyone is creating content. Lots of content.
But just like any marketing channel, there are agents and agencies who stand out more than others. There are some who generate revenue from their digital marketing efforts but for others, it's costing their business time and money with minimal (if any) return.
On this episode of Real Estate Pros, we discuss why some agents stand out online more than others and how to get more results with less effort.
