St. Davids, PA, October 14, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- In the cutthroat business of real estate sales, many agents remain antiquated in old marketing. From public benches to restaurant placemat advertising, agents continue to market offline in ways that might have worked in the eighties.
“Five years ago I realized that newspapers and magazines were a thing of the past. Everything and everyone was headed online, and I wanted to be right there where everyone spends their time each day,” explains RE/MAX Classic agent Brett Furman, in regards to his marketing strategy.
Mr. Furman’s instincts have proven accurate, as pointed out by Mark Lececce, from the community website Boston.com. He points out that over the past five years both major daily papers in the area have dropped paid subscribers by a whopping 48%. Conversely, access to the internet has nearly doubled in the same time frame.
“My website and social media properties are all about making it easy for homebuyers to access all the information they need from wherever they are in the world,” notes Furman.
The digital Brett Furman is hosted on a new website www.BrettFurman.com that offers users a wide array of Web 2.0 tools to enhance their home search. To help manage Mr. Furman’s new media marketing there is a full time social media strategist.
In keeping with the digital trends, Brett Furman has gone mobile with QR codes located on his yard signs for smart phone users to scan and access on-demand home tours. His e-mail newsletter base is growing at a fast clip as well. The new Brett Furman marketing effort even includes an online concierge to help homeowners with projects they need done.
“Despite all the benefits for the user, the greatest benefit for me personally is the ability to access valuable data on home views, home showings and home listings shared with other people online, as well as the rest of the metrics I now have access to. I am able to identify what home listings might need sprucing up faster and more effectively than ever before,” explains Brett Furman.
With convenient and forward-leaning technologies at the touch of a finger for home shoppers, it is no surprise that Mr. Furman ranks in the top 1% of agents in the Pennsylvania and Delaware region when it comes to sales. In the end, the digital strategy is paying off for buyers and agents alike.
