Have you been looking for a pretty slick marketing idea for your virtual tour and photography business? Are you looking to get your brand in front of hundreds or possibly thousands of potential customers? If you said yes to either of those questions then read on team! Last Fall the team over at BlueLaVaMedia a Traverse City Real Estate Photography Company and Aerial Drone Service reached out to C-21 of Michigan and offered to take photos of their next event free of charge. Well, not completely free. In exchange for taking portrait and event photos we asked if we could have a trade show booth setup and possibly get five minutes or so in front of everyone. What we got was far beyond what we expected and I think you can do this too!
On the day of the event close to a thousand real estate agents from all over Michigan began to pile into the convention center at the Grand Traverse Resort here in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan. BlueLaVaMedia had setup our trade show booth right next to our portrait backdrop area. We were able to show off many of our most popular services like our True-Blue photos, our new responsive the virtual tour player, our slick real estate photography app, the amazing drone photos and videos, our popular agent green screen video services, our single property websites, our virtual staging services, Fusion’s printable flyers and we even got a chance to give realtors a look at our up and coming 3D Goggle virtual tour. The exposure we gained from the show was beyond our greatest expectations. Jim Blue and Melissa took hundreds of photos of the event as well as many group photos. The photos they took were later uploaded to a drop site for C-21 to snag and distribute accordingly. No editing on our end by the way!
All in all we had hundreds of Michigan Realtors stop on by our booth throughout the night. The highlight of the evening occurred just after dinner when they gave us about five minutes on stage to address the entire room. That’s right! We were actually up there in front of everyone in the spotlight for our five minutes of fame. Here’s a video of the speech I gave for you to check out – https://youtu.be/uoTOOozDdag
If you’re looking for a great marketing opportunity I would highly recommend to anyone that you try this out. Simply reach out to your local branch office and find out who you should speak with at corporate with regards to donating some of your time to a similar event in your area. Good luck out there and we look forward to hearing about your similar success stories!
