It's very inexpensive to produce high definition video today, and thanks to YouTube the cost of distribution is much lower as well. Every project sales agency and expert should know that by now, but there are other reasons why video remains a powerful project marketing tool.

The Marketing Power of Video, the Convenience of Phone Calls

All the greatest project marketing experts will tell you that phone calls are better than email, and in-person tops phone calls. The further away you get from meeting in person, the more you deprive yourself of the tools of effective communication: tonality and body language, which put together make 93% of what will win for you in condo or real estate project sales and any other sales for that matter. The problem is, we have phone calls and email because that's more convenient for people. They can't always meet you in person. Fortunately, new technologies are reducing the amount of marketing power that you would normally have to compromise for the sake of convenience. I'm going to discuss two of them.

Why "Spray and Pray" Marketing No Longer Works

I constantly see condo developers making the same old mistake: using one brand statement to try and reach a vast array of different people. In the old marketing days we called that tactic "Spray and Pray" because it involved blanketing everyone with the same message, then hoping and praying it would stick to somebody. There may have been a time when that was the best you could do, but that era is definitely over and the project marketing world is better for it. One size has never fit all, and you will rarely find a product that appeals to all people in exactly the same way. The new age of Digital Marketing provides the tools you need to appeal to different people in optimal ways. Here are the facts.

How Internet Marketing Worked

Every once in a while it's fun to reminisce about how marketing used to be. Remember how internet marketing was before the time of social media?When you basically had newsgroups, chat rooms, webpages and email to work with. There wasn't even Google for research purposes. I worked on a team with Lou Pearlman and proved that, with the right organization, we could make internet marketing work. A lot has changed, but the basic four principles are the same: use the latest available technology, create a database, create relevant communication, and build brands. You could apply that to condo project marketing or real estate project sales today. Let's review how I applied these principles back in the day, to a then-new group of guys who had yet to sell an album.

The 4 Pillars of Effective Email Marketing Campaigns

Email is one of the most technologically mature ways to communicate on the internet. Over the years, email project marketing methods have shifted in the same way as marketing in general. Gone are the days of spray-and-pray mass messages to strangers, most of whom will just delete the message or mark it as spam. If you're a project sales expert or running a project sales agency, you need to know the methods that have been developed to turn prospects into leads, to keep leads engaged or increasingly interested, and to convert those leads into real estate or condo project sales. These are the 4 Pillars of Effective Email Marketing Campaigns.

Marketing Tip: Touching on Touchpoints

Only one percent of people who walk into a condo project sales office will agree to buy on the first visit. Buying a condo is a big commitment, a long term relationship of sorts. How many people do you know who would say yes to a proposal on the first date? For that matter, how many people propose on a first date? It surprises me whenever a condo project sales office is treated like the beginning and the end of condo project marketing outreach. Every different way that you introduce customers to (and, after, remind customers of) your company and your project is what I call a touchpoint. Sales office visits, appointments, advertisements, email campaigns, each of these is a touchpoint to maintain the interest of sales leads. I am briefly going to summarize what you need to know about touchpoints.

Using Urgency To Create Successful Project Marketing Events

People often tell me that event selling will never work as a strategy in their particular market. They are wrong, and they believe what they do because they have not gone about the process correctly. You see, events thrive on building a sense of urgency. Your prospects lead busy lives and you must somehow make them feel like they need to be at your event.

3 Tips For Telling Great Marketing Stories

Every form of storytelling is an art with a process. If you want to write a novel, you could make something pretty crazy by making it up as you go along, but you would have low chances of commercial success with that. You need notes, frameworks, plans; a strategy. The same goes for project marketing and sales ads. A successful project sales agency figures this out on some level, yet far too often you see ads for real estate and condos that have just the facts. Facts may tell, but stories sell. Let me share with you three points that help explain the finer points of the art of telling great marketing stories.

Marketing and Sales Tips: Following Up With Customers

Have you ever watched a movie that started off great but stopped being interesting somewhere in the middle? Or a sports team that jumped out to a big lead early in their game only to lose their advantage and ultimately lose the game? I have seen condo project sales that looked like they were doing everything right to start but were failing to follow up, and it looks remarkably similar. The project marketing process, like the game winning process, takes effort from beginning to end. Today I will discuss how important it is to follow up, and how to follow up, if you want to win the project marketing game.
