Marketing—nobody’s favorite topic.

So, really, if you want to sell more homes, you really can. Don’t, however, think all you need is a new home builder website, more marketing, or even better marketing—what you need is different marketing. Continue Reading →

Homebuilders: Did You Know Homebuyers Are Looking To Eliminate You Based On Your Website?

That title isn’t meant to frighten homebuilders, but, unfortunately it is true. Please let me explain.

How many of you can recall the thrill of something so simple as buying candy as a child? I vividly remember anticipating the visit to the corner store, eager to hand over my hard-earned money—all 20 cents of it—to purchase penny candy. All the varieties of sweets, vying for the attention of a little boy like myself, calling out from their flashy wrappers held in check within glass containers colorfully presented on the counter.

We all have responsibilities, whether it is to our family, financial institutions, the community in which we live or even to ourselves, living life according to the personal ethics we have chosen. Your website also must live up to the obligations you deemed necessary from its initial launch. As time marches on, many businesses lose sight as to the importance of their online presence. I’m not talking about how active your company is on social media or how frequently you blog, rather, I’m referring to the duty your website has to lead your audience to actually choose, and then purchase your product.

4 Cutting Edge Marketing Strategies To Ignite Your Sales

There is an increasing overlap between what we call marketing and traditional sales. The change in how buyers shop – online searches, browsing your website, talking to one another (i.e. with your current residents and other prospects) on social channels – requires that you begin ‘selling’ before you ever have the chance to speak in person to a prospect.

True, marketing has always been (or at least should be) sales in print, but it is in that area between marketing and sales where you have the highest potential to capture the attention and hearts of your buyers. The trouble is that most builders, retailers or communities are often unaware of these online prospects, and so believe that we can’t sell to those we can’t see. Well, just because you can’t see them does not mean that they can’t see you, or that they aren’t paying keen attention to what you have to show and say.

They are there. They are watching, avidly consuming what information you give them. Give them the right message and content, delivered in the way they want to consume it, and you’ll eventually see them pull into your parking lot or picking up their phone to you to engage with you in person.
