Episode 34 – Branding and Marketing in Real Estate Investing



Think you don’t need to market yourself in the world of real estate investing? Think again!

In this interview, I talk with my branding coach, Paul Copcutt, about the importance of branding, marketing and standing out from everyone else.

A business card and logo are not where marketing ends and they certainly are not what your brand is. Equally, social media is a tool to communicate your brand but you need to be sure that your message is a clear one for anyone to take notice in today’s noisy world.

Your personal brand is what sets you apart from the competition and tells prospective clients and partners why they should choose you over anyone else. But it is up to you to own the definition of who you are and personal branding enables you to do that.

In this episode you’ll learn:

– Tips on identifying what makes you unique

– Understanding the need to have a niche and specialty

– Why social media is not the be all and end all

– 20 topics you can use to create unique videos

– Tips on using LinkedIn to build your business

– Why doing your own podcast may be a great strategy
