Successful businesses know when to use
             advertising and when to use marketing.


The Fact

The first step to gain market share is to gain mind share. Attitude and awareness have to change in your favor, to do this it takes a consistent series of touches that are welcomed and position you positively.

The process of a prospect adopting is called situational involvement, they have to be in a situation of need before they want to discuss the service. That presents major challenges to getting new business. Incorrect positioning is why most marketing fails.

The Problem

Unless people are ready to buy or sell their homes, they see personal contact and advertisements in their mail as unwanted interruptions.

In order to gain a homeowner's business, they have to feel comfortable with a realtor. They have to trust that you will be the one to help them.

The Solution

A consistent program to a given area or prospect base building a relationship until the situation of need occurs. To, over time, become the company they recognize as selling their area and the one they would choose if they needed service.
