I don’t have any listings, should I still invest in marketing?
“One of my favorite questions in which I always answer back with a question…’If you don’t have any listings, are you out of business?’ The reply is often ‘No, of course not’ ‘Well then, of course, you need to stay visible and invest in marketing!’ The fact is, this is the best kind of marketing – the opportunity to communicate to the local real estate market WHY they should do business with you and WHAT you have to offer and HOW you differentiate from your 5000 agent competitors.”
Warren Dow | CEO & Publisher DIGS
