The lifeblood of a real estate agent's business is access to quality leads that result in sales and good reviews. This can easily suck up time and money for agents trying to market themselves. But what if there were a way to get leads and not have to pay until closing? There is!

Real estate agents know that a steady flow of leads is critical for the growth of their business. Depending upon your marketing strategy and business goals, acquiring a steady supply of leads is an ongoing battle. And it can be quite time-consuming.

When you're in real estate, you can never be sure if you are going to close a sale or not. The added expense of paying upfront for leads, or doing your own advertising, can really take a bite out of your income. Yet you need a consistent way to find buyers and sellers to keep your business going.

Here are your options:

Build an Online Presence

Traditionally, building brand awareness in your community requires you to create and maintain relationships with local homeowners in order to establish a positive reputation as a trusted agent. But these days, you also need to have an online presence to generate leads through requests for consultations or other advice.

Many agents build their own websites and create their own social media ads which take time, money, and perhaps even the need to learn a new skill set. Other agents might spend thousands per month in fees for lead generation companies to supply them with leads and help them build their online presence.

Promotional activities to build an online presence can include anything from hiring a copywriter and photographer to help you build and maintain a website. A web designer and digital marketer can also create a professional online presence and get your brand out into the internet.

If you are a DIYer, learning these skills yourself can take hours of your time away from nurturing the leads you already have and negotiating sales.
