Top 10 Modern Ways Verbode Markets Real Estate

In today’s world of marketing, there are so many ways to get your product to the masses. Yet, it isn’t always so easy to figure out the best way to do that. Real Estate marketing has been pretty basic and lacking imagination for awhile now. The visionaries at Verbode didn’t want to have anything to do with that. So they decided to mix it up a bit and expand their marketing along with the growth of OKC!

Top 10 Modern Ways Verbode Markets Real Estate


10. Twilight Open House

A staple of Thursday nights after work, Twilight Open Houses are our chance to give the public the best first introduction possible to your property. We go all out for our Clients. We have included food trucks, catering from local favorites, local artist shows, and local musicians. If we can entice people to come see the home with their own eyes, it isn’t long before someone falls in love. It also gives the owner an excuse to have a going away party for the place they called home.

9. Creative Wordsmithing

Yes, a great photo of a home can spark the interest, but the right language can convince a non-believer. If you haven’t noticed, “verb” is part of our name. We see too many listing descriptions give a great home a weak story. Verbode is here to change that. Every home deserves a great description.

8. Branding

Branding is no longer just the logo and the phrase, it is living what you do. It is believing in an idea. One you can share with those you work with. At Verbode, our brand is synonymous with the Urban Core of Oklahoma City. We want to provide to our clients a concierge experience catered to their lifestyle. Our clients no longer look for a new home, they look for a new city, community, and neighborhood. Our mission at Verbode is to connect the beautiful individuals of Oklahoma City to their perfect community. One in which they not only live but thrive in.


7. Historical Education

Oklahoma City has a shaky past when it comes to historic buildings. We believe our mentality for historical structures can be changed. By informing the public and community about our historic homes and buildings we hope to create a loving appreciation for the past. Oklahoma City has many stories worth telling and remembering, and the homes and structures that have stood the test of time are deserving of a platform to tell their unique histories.


6. Blogging

If you are reading this right now, then our marketing is working. Blogging has become one of the optimal ways to inform. With news, events, and opportunities to see an open house conveniently placed at your fingertips, blogging is convenient and effective. There is a sea of Real Estate websites, but they are hard to navigate. We are able to give you a detailed list of properties we have open on the weekends, along with a map. Our blogs also underscore our love for Oklahoma City and commitment to being active in local events and a part of the communities in which we place our clients.

5. Staging/Art

Not everyone can bring to life a home in their own minds. If you walk into an empty space and that is all you see, you will likely benefit from a staged home. Giving the buyer and seller an example of what the space could look like actually stimulates the imagination. When a realtor has a showing in a staged space, they don’t have to set a scene for every room. In some cases, the staged items and/or the art will stay with the home and go along with the sell.


4. Website

The internet is a daily part of our lives in many different ways. Now with more people connected to it, having a website is the best way to connect clients to your business. Our website allows anyone to find an agent, a home, and learn more about their communities. We give them many options to find what they are looking for. They can search by district, neighborhood or even city. They can even find the featured listings we represent. In addition, our website makes it easier for potential buyers to connect with our team and get connected to your property on a shorter timeline.

3. Photos and Videos

Visualizing a home is not as easy as it sounds. Being able to show a home at it’s best is what photography and videography can do. Photography has always been a great way to show a home and sparks the interest in those who are looking. Coupling photo with video has made for a beneficial bonus for both client and realtor. It helps everyone see the home as it is. It can also highlight the features that a client might be looking for in a home. Verbode builds working relationships with skilled local photographers that we trust to bring the best images of your home to the market.


2. Social Media

If it is an app on your phone, we are likely already marketing on it. Facebook is one of the best ways to connect to our clients. Everyone is connected to it and everyone checks it several times a day. So we wanted to be ready and available in the places they spend most of their time. We also have an Instagram we update with new listings and open houses. Other social media accounts are listed below:

Top Ten Ways to Connect with Verbode!

It seems every day a new online social media is born. The very next day people find out they can connect with a business or brand. This has helped brands inform their customers in a whole new exciting way. Verbode has taken this idea of connection and changed the way people think about a Real Estate Brokerage. We no longer want to only inform our clients, we strive to inform our neighborhoods, districts and communities on all things OKC! We feel our clients are no longer just looking for a new home, they are also looking for a new community. They want to know about the closest district or what park is walking distance from their new home. Verbode uses many different online media to connect with you and we use them in the best way possible.

Below is the list of ways to connect with Verbode online and what we usually post to them.

10. Google + – It seems Google is the best way to get out the basic information about a company or brand. Info like location, hours of operation and what type of company we are. This allows for anyone to type Verbode into a Google search and get the exact information you need.

9. Steller – Still an unknown app., Steller is slowly becoming a place for all types of people to write their own short stories. You can add photos, videos and hashtags. It is a creative place for creative marketing that can connect someone to a product or location in a whole new way.

8. Periscope – 2015’s app. of the year, Periscope is a live connection to those who are near your business location at any given time. You can shoot video show off your process and where you work.

7. Youtube – For some, Youtube has replaced classic television programming. You can find news, entertainment, education and videos from around the world. Verbode is able to shoot video with informative content for the large percentage of visual types. We plan on adding new videos monthly.

6. Snapchat – It was a platform that had a rocky start, but has become a great tool to shoot small snippets of work life. Verbode can shoot a meeting, a new listing or even an event in one of our many districts. It also gives us the opportunity to answer questions and allows for suggestions by our clients.

5. Pinterest – Little did anyone know that Pinterest would become the easiest way to share what a client prefers and is looking for in a home. We are able to post our listings, neighborhoods, and districts. Giving those on the search a place to pin to their own personal boards.

4. Instagram – A photo album in modern times, Instagram can help you connect with like-minded creatives and businesses in your area and around the world. Verbode loves taking photos of our day and the work that we do. Still photographs will never lose their charm and remain the easiest way to show a home.

3. Twitter – Twitter only allows 140 characters, yet millions have found a way to inform regardless. Used all over the world for news updates and what seemed to be the best way to connect with the modern business. Twitter is still relevant years after it’s birth.


2. Facebook – The majority of the people you know have a Facebook page. It is used in so many different ways by so many different types of people. Connecting with friends and family, planning an event and even keeping up with trends. Follow our Agents: Bryson Maxwell, Gary Caplinger, Michelle Belknap, Barrett & Tennille McCallister, Veronica Galaviz, Mary Hatch, Ginny Hawkins and Julie Kramer.
