As a new real estate photographer just starting my business, I'm still learning what real estate associations are, how the real estate industry works, etc. So I'm literally at step 1. I'm wondering what are the most effective ways of getting my first clients. Should I beat the pavement and visit RE offices and hand them my marketing material? Should I try to get presentation time at an office or association? Should I try Facebook or Google ads? I'm willing to grind; I just want to grind in the most productive places.
In general, face to face marketing is the strongest way to market Realtors because they are very people oriented. Going to real estate offices is one way. Give a presentation if you can but some areas are so real estate photography savvy, that it doesn't work well anymore. Going to open houses is another way to meet face to face with listing agents.
