Facebook Advertising For Real Estate Agents

Traditional Advertising

  • Referrals
  • Word of Mouth
  • Glossy Postcards
  • Newspaper Ads
  • Grocery Store Separators, etc…

The problem with traditional advertising is that not only are all the other brokers utilizing these traditional marketing tactics, which makes it harder to differentiate, but there’s also an incredible amount of waste in traditional advertising (postcards as an example are just plain and simple carpet bombing).
