Marketing is an incredibly important part of any real estate agent’s career. Your marketing materials represent you and your brand, and should be bringing you valuable leads.
In some cases, your marketing materials might be the first contact that you have with a potential client, like if they receive a postcard mailer or seeing an ad on social media. You want to make sure that first impression is a professional one!
But what do you do if you don’t have the budget for hiring the best graphic designers and photographers to create your marketing materials?
There are some resources available out there to help you do it yourself, even if you have no formal training in design. From stock images, to design tools, and even design inspirations, these online resources can help you put materials together for free. Check these out if you need logo designs, layout designs, and even photo editing.
Adobe Photoshop Express
Adobe Photoshop is already the go-to for design professionals. Photoshop Express is a free tool that is ideal for producing content, even if you don’t have a design background. It has a broad range of tools and features that are simple to use.
It covers the basics, like cropping, rotating, and removing red-eye. Use slide controls to correct a number of things like contrast, clarity, exposure, temperature, tint, shadows and highlights. It also gives you the ability to remove blemishes, add text, add filters, or even correct perspective.
You can use this app on your computer, or even on the go from your phone or tablet. Save your photos, or share directly to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and plenty of other destinations.
