Good article with a great link to 25 killer Pinterest real estate promotional suggestions.

ScottsdaleHomesoldfast's comment, September 20, 8:44 PM
While searching for the best marketing technique in real estate, I took a commercial real estate class from a lady once who's mantra was, "All real estate is microeconomic." The four P's of marketing apply in real estate too. Placement, Price, Product, Promotion. I had a marketing prof who included a fifth P, which was Person. All of those P's must be in alignment for any marketing strategy to work as intended. Consider who your person is; create the appropriate promotion; put it in a place they will notice it; advertise the desired price and for the desired product. The appropriate and effective marketing mix will be "microeconomic" or geographic specific, more appropriately. I would love to hear your views on this?
Bill Gassett's comment, September 21, 4:54 AM
