 As a developer you may have always depended on “word of mouth” at the country club as your capital campaign marketing plan, and if that has worked for you in the past, then that’s ok.  However, if you have larger goals of growing your business, you may need a better plan!

Here are some steps to consider when planning your capital campaign:

  1. Find your target audience

Who is your TARGET audience?  This may be dependent on the type of projects you are developing or the geographic market you are in.  Make sure you are marketing to the investors you want to reach. Most businesses try to market to all investors.  Yes, this is probably true from time to time, but in that long list, who lands in your “sweet spot”?  The sweet spot is where you should focus on the most and whom you want to target!

  1. What type of marketing do you want to do?

Open Source Capital spends hours every week researching and updating where to reach your target market,  the “sweet spot”, where you can get the best bang for your buck?

  1. Decide on a budget and be creative

How much are you able to spend on your capital campaign?  Perhaps you may want to start small and then slowly increase each year as your business increases.  What is important is that you are consistent with your marketing.  Be creative and let your message be heard, catch that potential investors attention.

    4. Have patience and do not give up!

Consistency is the key word. You may want to give up on your advertising if you do not see an immediate return, but the facts are, not every investor is looking to invest at the time they see your deal.

Branding your name is the most important thing you can do in marketing.

Who is an investor going to think of when they are ready to invest?  Investors are inundated with multiple deals every day.  How do they remember every developer?  The fact is, they cannot. What they do remember is the top ten names. That is why you cannot give up on your capital campaign marketing plan!  Stick with it, be consistent and your patience and hard work will eventually pay off!
