Very little money is spent in our marketing, more about doing certain things in the right ways that brings in the clients and much less about how much we have budgeted.

Yes and some have already been put into motion as were some of the marketing that needed nixxing. The budget has also been tweaked!

Looking SO forward to Booj; it rolls out next week here. I was a beta tester for it and it's going to be fabulous...and save us on our marketing costs too!

I pretty much go with a flowing market plan and make little changes as needed. Here in NH we have distinct seasons and Thanksgiving to New Years can be the slowest of the year. January and February are affected by weather, a cold snowy winter can slow things down. A warmer weather can mean a booming winter. Either way the goal is always to keep getting listings, market them, sell them and repeat

I'm happy to hear that you're planning well in advance....this is good timing for that task...

and, no, I don't have a carved in stone budget.... I do what's needed....however, having said that, the name has been branded in my area and my methods and sources used complement each other.... we're in good shape, Paul....

you keep marketing in a steady fashion with no gaps and you'll be in the same shape.
