15 FREE Sites to Post Your Open Houses!

dakno flip cameraNot advertising your open house is just like having a party and not inviting anyone.  Why bother?  Pull out a calendar and SCHEDULE your open houses.  PLAN for them.  And, most important of all, ADVERTISE them!  Make sure when you advertise, you also add directions that are easy to follow - (not everyone has a GPS).  

Advertise a drawing for a free Flip video camera.  You can find them on Amazon now for about $50.  After 4 or so open houses, draw a name and make a big deal announcing the winner - advertise that too.  Make sure to order a custom skin for the Flip camera with your branding on it ( so everyone knows where it came from!  I've attached a picture of Dakno's custom skin.

For the list of free sites to advertise your open houses, read the entire post here.

Have a great party!

Thaks for the list and good idea about branding a flip phone...that would be good for any give-a-way.  Wonder if you bought them by the dozen if they get cheeper?

Terrific post in more ways then one.  In the past I have had more money then time so "wasted" some money on advertising.  Now like many agents I have a little more time that I can spend and would prefer to spend less money.

Actually looked for a flip camera today at Office Depot.  $150-200.  I will be checking online tomarrow.

Thanks for the tips

Mirela - thank you for the re-blog.  Brian - keep an eye out for sales on the Flip.  As the HD cameras are gaining n popularity, stores have been running big sales on them.
