Crazy ideas for crazy times!
A local company is offering a free website and SEO training with lease agreement on a commercial property near Lake Norman. With the market the way it is, companies have to be creative in reaching perspective tenants. “It’s a way to spark people’s interest and get them through the door,” says Cox Group owner Rodrick Cox, a local marketing and advertising agency. “It makes sense to use our experience in marketing to help increase traffic to a unit we have available for lease.
We are not competitors to other real estate agencies; in fact we’re hopeful they can be clients. We have a unit in one of our buildings that has just become available and we want to lease it quickly.” Cox created an online video showing the office and all the upgrades and posted it to their commercial real estate blog http://www.officespacehuntersville.com with plans for a quick turn around. “We’ve had great success with search engine marketing tools on our corporate site [coxgp.com], so why not offer some of that knowledge and experience to a new tenant.”
Cox is offering to develop a website for a new tenant and then provide training to maximize their online brand exposure with good Internet practices and SEO techniques.
“We put our last unit [for lease] on our real estate blog and our corporate website and, with-in a short period of time, had it leased. We had it listed with a commercial realtor who said we generated more traffic than they did, so they let us close the deal without paying them commission.
We believe by having a video online where a prospective tenant can look at the property and by offering an added value service like a free website this will help stimulate foot traffic and a quick lease.
