Marketing is the process used to introduce and promote a product or service to its target market, includes advertising, promotions, public relations, and sales. It is one of the key ways businesses communicate with their customers and potential customers. Even if a business offers the best real estate services, without effective marketing its target market will have no idea what it has to offer. In other words, if a business is not in the presence of its potential customers, they will use other real estate services. Marketing has many benefits.
