Redmond, WA (PRWEB) April 19, 2007
Social Media Systems and RISMedia are proud to announce the official launch of their jointly created RISMedia Local Real Estate News | regional news and listings Beta project. Social Media Systems has partnered with RISMedia to create a new product that merges RSS, Real World Publishing, Social Networking, and Community Portal elements, as well as Social Media Systems' expertise in search engine marketing and public relations. The uniquely innovative new distribution method effectively combines both online and offline marketing strategies.
In the current business environment, the companies that will rise to the top are those that don't limit themselves to either online or offline marketing. Social Media Systems has created a platform for RISMedia that will enable local real estate brokers to maximize the sales potential of both print and online approaches for carrying their marketing message to clients.
The product of a strategic alliance between Social Media Systems and RISMedia's Real Estate Magazine, a respected nearly 30-year-old print magazine, The RISMedia Local Real Estate News | regional news and listings Beta is a bundled service that turns local real estate brokers into regional reporters/editors for The RISMedia.com/Local/Yourstate/YourCity/ section of RISMedia's new content generation blog. Local real estate agents will have an exclusive opportunity to serve as the only weekly columnist for RISMedia.com/Local in their own area. As the exclusive source of regional news and listings in their area, the RISMedia Local Real Estate News columnist will be highly visible to potential clients.
Serving as the local columnist for RISMedia Local Real Estate News will give the real estate broker coveted status as an authority and prime search engine placement, as well as sponsorship of local MLS listings, local news and local services to consumers for real estate at a regional section of the social media roll-out currently being prepared for Real Estate Magazine (RISMedia.com). Consumers and real estate brokers will interact via a social media platform sorted by city and state.
Each columnist will author a weekly column about local news in their area, professionally edited, syndicated and distributed by RISMedia to their entire worldwide circulation of over 335,000 and growing. The regional section sponsored by the local columnist will carry that real estate broker's message and sponsor link on every page. The linkage and sponsorship from this authoritative site will place the real estate broker's website on top of search results for real estate searches in his or her area.
To ensure maximum exposure for both the columnist and RISMedia, onsite consultation and search engine placement for the columnist's own real estate website by Social Media Systems Online Marketing Company is included in the price of sponsorship. By co-branding their websites with RISMEdia, local columnists can advertise their exclusivity as the official local source of news for RISMedia.com/Local in their area.
The initial price for sponsorship also includes a credit for 100% of the down payment in print advertising in Real Estate Magazine -- enough for a print ad announcing their exclusive status as RISMedia's local source for news (the print circulation is over 45,000 of some of the largest brokers in the world -- the Magazines reside on their coffee tables). RISMedia.com will feed traffic and referrals to their columnists from their huge, busy website (which is currently being re-vamped with WEB 2.0 features to accommodate the growth), and no competitive Realtors will be able to sponsor the sponsor's local section. Local consumers will be offered online profiles, mortgage calculators, RSS feeds, and access to local listings, all sponsored by the columnist/sponsor, and that columnist will remain the only broker editor in their zip code as long as they continue their sponsorship.
Columnist/sponsor slots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Medium to large brokers with local roots are desired: For more information about this beta launch, please visit http://RISMedia.info.
