Week 4 of the Marketing Makeover Challenge: Getting the Word Out

By Brian Summerfield, Online Editor, REALTOR® Magazine

RM-HP_mainimage_2In the spirit of this week’s Marketing Makeover Challenge, “Getting the Word Out,” the finalists in the REALTOR® Magazine/HP contest designed postcards to promote their businesses to potential buyers and sellers.

As in weeks past, the contestants used the medium in a distinctive way. One finalist created a postcard that tried to convert FSBOs into clients. Another used it to promote updates to his brokerage’s Web site. A third promoted the home buyer tax credit on her postcard, and a fourth publicized an upcoming open house.

It’s been very exciting to watch these REALTORS® develop and improve upon their marketing materials each week, and I look forward to seeing what they come up with for the final two challenges. Follow their progress at the Marketing Makeover Challenge contest blog. Also, be sure to vote for your favorite finalist in each week’s challenge and register for your chance to win $100 in credit for HP products and services.
