Native Advertising

It’s no secret that online blogs and newspapers are having a hard time generating revenue though traditional advertising.  They are trying something new, native advertising. Instead of displaying as to readers or consumers, they work the ad into tailored stories posted among their normal editorials and stories.  Many readers don’t even know they are reading an ad.

Here is an example of a native content ad on popular site BuzzFeed.

As an agent, this practice can be great. Contact your local newspaper or local blogger and see if you can pay to get some exposure for your business. The stories can be tailored to your expertise, so readers will get a good feeling for your skills and business.

Start a real estate news site

I know it sounds weird, but being your own cheerleader does work in the digital real estate world. Think about it like this, if you’re a killer agent or broker in your town you may not have any local outlets to help get your name out there.

According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, people value reading content thats not trying to sell them anything. You can use your expertise to release content based on your expertise. They willl value this and think of you when buying or selling a home.

Podcast ads

For those not in the know, a podcast is a radio show you can listen to anytime. They are taking the world by storm. Like traditional radio, they use ads to generate revenue.

According to an article in Ad Age, podcast listeners are more engaged, and are way more likely to convert than traditional advertising.  Agents should reach out and by some digital radio ad space.
