Highlight Local Businesses for Labor Day

As Labor Day weekend kicks off the fall season, you can draw inspiration from that theme by featuring local workers and businesses in your Agent Insight posts. Remember that Agent Insight is a prospecting tool which allows you to present every aspect of your community. Try focusing on retail stores, restaurants, and other local businesses for your next few submissions.

Make a list of your favorite stores, specialty shops, and professional offices.  Include home-related services such as lawn care, plumbing, painting, or house cleaning companies. Choose any business that would be of interest to your clients including services and shops that can help them as they settle into their new homes.

Presenting local businesses can be a two-way street. Tell the proprietors that you are showcasing them in Agent Insight, your online marketing tool for finding new clients. Explain that you are using your post to highlight their business for potential new home buyers in their community.  Give them your business card, and perhaps someday one of the proprietors will send a lead your way!

Many agents have been submitting posts about local businesses for years. Here are excerpts from a few really good posts (credits noted below). Note that several of these posts also have links to videos about the subject.
