Finding Your Focus: Niche Marketing for Real Estate - 3.00 Hrs (#C10729)
This course is iPad Compatible. Many real estate agents operate in a certain specialty or “niche,” and perhaps with a little thought, many more would take the time to discover the benefits of carving out a niche for themselves. When agents market themselves as experts in a certain aspects of the industry, it not only helps the agent, but the client/customer as well. Customers need to know who the most knowledgeable, experienced professional in the area is. If there is an agent who specializes in the topic the customer needs assistance with, it is good for the industry if that customer is made aware of that agent. This course is designed to help agents identify a niche that they may want to specialize in and to be able to market themselves as an expert so that all customers are receiving the best care possible by an experienced expert in the industry. 

Learning Objectives 

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

• Compare and contrast the mass marketing and niche marketing approaches 
• Discuss the process of thinking strategically about developing a niche 
• Discuss different niches that are available and how they apply to their abilities and interests

Real Estate Safety: Protect Yourself and Your Clients - 3.00 Hrs (#C10730)

Real estate is generally a safe profession, but there are dangers that agents are exposed to on occasion. While the number of work related deaths and injuries are relatively low, they are not nonexistent. Female real estate agents are more likely to become victims than men; however, men are not immune to attack.

Think about it: real estate licensees often meet complete strangers by themselves, in vacant properties, at odd hours, with little or no background information on the potential client(s). When you think about it this way, the job can sound dangerous. There are some basic safety protocols real estate professionals can employ in the field. Though your brokerage may have a set of security procedures in place, many brokerages rely on the individual agent to establish their own safety measures.
