Marketing ideas with zero or low-cost are easier to conceive when you follow your passion. Anyone can develop business in their luxury real estate marketing practice with money. But, some of best results can be achieved without spending a dime. Here is an example of a low-cost promotional idea that cost an agent very little but yielded big results.
A very successful luxury real estate marketing professional in Chicago was on the board of directors for the local museum. Her passion was engaging kids in the world of art. When the museum created a special interactive event for kids she sent out event invitations to all of her past clients and her entire sphere of influence offering to cover the admission cost for their kids. At $10 per child she spent only $500 for the 50 that showed up WITH THEIR PARENTS!
The positive response was unanimous. The kids had a blast, learned new things and made new friends. The adults appreciated the opportunity to meet new community members. Several of the parents jointed the museum because of the quality of the children’s program. She generated a tremendous amount of good will not only from those who attended, but also from those who were impressed with the invitation and could not make it.
She also received several referrals shortly thereafter which converted to significant commissions that made the $500 investment a drop in the ocean. What contributed most to the success of this marketing idea was her passion for getting kids excited about the arts. This is part of what her personal brand stands for. When you tap into your passion and tie it into your work everything aligns to this core principle that makes marketing a joy.
