In the self-serve environment of real estate information online, it is essential for you to convey to your target market exactly what your unique promise of value is as a luxury real estate marketing professional. The internet has been a disruption not only to brokers and agents but also to luxury real estate print media. However, some very innovative print marketing ideas have emerged that can give you the competitive edge.
We are excited to announce a new video blog series launching next week in which we feature our LOL media partners. Each publication has a unique promise of value. Each has developed innovative ways to help agents market themselves and their luxury properties. We thought you would like to know more about these new ideas so you can make intelligent choices when advertising in print by finding the publications that best match your particular marketing needs.
There has been much ado these days about the current health and the very future of print media in general, magazines in particular. Many are asking, “is print dead”?
Movies didn’t kill radio. TV didn’t kill movies. The internet will not kill magazines! This is the basic premise a consortium of consumer magazine publishers (non-real estate) who want to set the record straight about their industry. They say an established medium can continue to flourish so long as it continues to offer a unique experience.
- Magazines are very much alive! Here are the facts:
- Annual number of paid subscriptions is nearly 300 M
- Magazine ad recall has increased by 13% over the last four years
- Adults 18-34 read more issues than adults 35 and older
- The average reader spends 43 minutes reading each issue
- Readership has actually grown over the last five years
In luxury real estate marketing there are those who tend to “throw away the baby with the bath water” by eliminating print media altogether. From our standpoint, the right print media campaign, when combined with online marketing strategies, can be an integral part of building your personal brand and advertising your luxury property listings.
