Permission to Advertise

April 18 2013

In this edition of Wolf Bytes, Shaun Nilsson from real estate and social media website CityBlast.comCityBlast.com discusses how you can generate more leads right now by using other people's listings, and posting them on Craigslist and KijijiKijiji.

Most people have bought or sold something on Craigslist or Kijiji at one time or another. It's a great place to post items for sale, and this includes properties. But what if you want those valuable Craigslist and Kijiji leads, but have no listings?

Don't be shy about asking the agents with the best possible listings – the ones you think will really sell. Ask these agents for permission to advertise their listings, and tell them you'd like to post them online to generate new buyer leads for their properties.

If they give you permission, be sure to comply with whatever marketing standards are set up in your area, such as posting the listing brokerage or agents' name on your ad. Make sure you also indicate that they can gather more information from you as well!

The rest is easy. Just sit back and wait for your phone to ring. People in your market searching for homes on these sites will call you for more information on these properties. You then simply provide helpful service, answer their questions, and turn them into clients. Simple!
