Effectively Marketing Your Appraisal Business

Can you double the value of your business in a tough economy? Yes, it’s possible. But not with yesterday’s tools, or with tired last-century methods that grow less effective year by year, like most advertising, all Yellow Pages, and people with “sales” in their title. It’s time to get serious about strategic integrated branding, including company and product naming, design, active websites, digital video, search engine optimization … practical marketing disciplines coordinated to optimize brand “findability” and differentiation.
