Doing charity is always good when you can afford it. Sponsoring your business is great when you can do it. Mix the two, and do some sponsoring at charities. You will get positive results in a very short time. This applies for many businesses and much good for the real estate business and is a nice plan of marketing for Vancouver real estate investment agents.
You don’t have to be a millionaire to sponsor. Sponsorship programs can be managed with little donation too. All that matters is your presence, and showing your face. Do not be the white collar sponsor who simple pays and never shows their face. Rather be present in a charity event or human welfare event, and try talking to people and increase contacts. This happens like this.
Selection of the right event
You should select charitable camps and events where both simple and influential people come. Blood donation camps, vaccination camps, poor children welfare programs, donation of books and dresses to the poor, thalassemia camps etc, to name a few, are some such events where donation in any amount really matters, and you may choose to both donate and offer a hand of help. As you work a little, talk a little with people, you get to socialize, and you will find out chances to introduce yourself as the real estate agent who helps people. Besides your name, company name etc will also get flashed on the event highlighting your presence even more.
People do get impressed about such personalities, who really do care to pay and stay present and help. It will pay you off soon, as you will see your popularity as the helpful person and real estate agent increase.
Presence of influential people
Another point of interest is the presence of influential people. In such programs some rich and influential people are always present and active in some ways, and they may come to know about you. You must find out the names of other sponsors and helping authorities and try to make contacts. They may become your customer in few days as you introduce yourself with your card to them. The platform is a great one for humble talks and smart marketing, as you do some real good work too.
Marketing is not just an online marketing fever where you simply puts ads and sites everywhere and expect your business to grow. To become popular in your locality and city you must grow your popularity as a nice and amiable businessman too. This is one of the smart tips of local marketing for real estate agents.
