Do you have a listing that just won’t sell or lease?  It’s time to try some techniques to get that problem-child out of your hair!  Here are some ways to advertise your commercial real estate listings without spending a huge amount of money.

Email your Contacts ($0) – Emailing your own contact list is a great first step to getting that property sold or leased.  You likely have a ton of investors, leasers, agents and brokers already at your finger tips that would love to help spread the word.

Social Media Posts ($0) – Another way to get your listing out to clients, friends, acquaintances, and random strangers you’ve added as “friends” is through social media.  Provide a few photos, description, and request people contact you for the brochure.

Create a Video ($0) – Create an experience of walking around the property, explain all the features of the space and building, make it interesting!

Craig’s List ($0) – This may not work for your $1 million-dollar property, but if you have a stubborn 1,200 SF office space, you may want to consider using Craig’s List or other free listing services.

Email Blasts ($59+) – When the free advertising leads to cricket chirps, don’t despair!  You can reach out of your social circle and hit investors and agents nationwide.  Big Boys Blast claims they send to over 128k emails in one shot.  Property Blast claims 90k emails.  Property Send claims a list of 120k.  Blast your listing information out to these folks for less than $100/per email.  Learn More about purchasing email blasts

NewsFunnel Ads ($250) – NewsFunnel sends out weekly emails targeted to commercial real estate agents and brokers.  They sell banners ads at a reasonable price, and claim their email goes to 50k people weekly.   Learn more about NewsFunnel advertising.

Open Houses ($$$) – This can get expensive but having a wine tasting or lunch available can really get local agents to pay attention.
