You Are a Real Estate Media Company [SPEAKING]

On July 25, 2017, I led a class to a room of real estate agents at MBH Settlement Group, L.C. located in Reston, Virginia. During the talk, I covered how every company and especially real estate agents are media companies that should create and develop content in various ways specifically for their target market. I introduced them to “Dave” the real estate agent. I also explained how developing and creating a strategy and executing on it is similar to baking a sweet potato pie. This will be the first of many classes that I hope to have on how small businesses, professionals and real estate agents can be media companies.

Update: An updated version of this class was given September 17, 2017 for Champion Title in Woodbridge, Virginia.

Update: An updated version of this class was given November 9, 2017 at Barcroft Realty in Fairfax, Virginia.
