  Get Paid to Market your Real Estate Business

Written by: Marti Gossland
Lasting Impressions 2

Year after year, agent after agent throws thousands of dollars away on direct mail postcards that get 3% return at best. Many have thought, "There has to be a better way!"
They are right! There is a better way! How would you like to get paid for your marketing?

Parks and Recreation in most cities offer classes in just about everything you can possibly imagine, from photography to quilting, Kung Fu to cooking. Publicity for the classes is taken care of by the city and costs the instructor nothing. The instructor charges a fee for the class usually around $30 per student for anywhere from 4-10 hours of instruction. And can usually receive $2,000 - $3,000 a year for holding classes just once a week.

What better way to market your business? The city pays for the marketing and you get paid to teach people about buying a house. Hold classes on how to buy a house, what to do to improve the value of their house, how to shop for a mortgage, home improvements etc.

You become an expert in the eyes of your students, trust is built and everyone coming to your class is interested in real estate, they are thinking of buying or selling their home.

The trick is think of helping others not selling something. If you make blatant efforts to sell real estate you students will pick up on that immediately! Don't do it! It does more harm than good. But if your class actually helps first time home buyers understand their options, and the choices they need to make, you will find that they will come to you when they are ready to buy. You have become an expert in their eyes and they trust you to help them through the process of selling or buying their home.
