More estate sale listing websites are launching, offering everything from listings of estate sales, online auctions, auctions, and estate and auction companies. They are offering services with a variety of options including letting them help you find an estate sale company. These are good places to start, but there are other websites to be considered.

If you belong to social media of any kind; Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest or other websites use their search capabilities to see what companies and sales may be advertised on them.  A company LinkedIn page could provide information on your brand and services.  They have a broad reach and it demonstrates the advertising expertise and marketing knowledge needed for success, not only attracting sellers, but attracting buyers.

Estate Sales News has a Facebook page and if you belong to Facebook we welcome you to join our audience. You will also find us on Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.

Social media has millions of followers. You can find estate sale companies, estate sales, and groups with special interest, antiques, Mid-century modern, lighting, and many others.

Many estate sale companies don’t have their own websites and use Facebook to reach out across the country for buyers. Success can be attained in a variety of ways.

Whatever social media you use it’s one more tool for sellers, buyers, and estate sale companies.

Advertising Estate Sales and Estate Sale Companies – Social Media, Websites, Success

BlogThe internet has become the worldwide method of communicating and that is especially true for advertising.

There are so ways and places to advertise.

If you are advertising estate sales there are many estate sale listing websites out there to list your sales on. They offer packages for advertising and some may even be free. They may even offer social media connections.

Estate sale companies can also advertise on Facebook (free unless you boost your post or promote your website or page), Twitter (where you can tweet several times a day up to 140 characters including during an estate sale), Google+ (you will need a gmail account) where you can post everything from videos to photos and descriptions, reddit (descriptions etc.), LinkedIn where you can showcase your business and personal history and make connections with others in a variety of fields, YouTube for videos, Pinterest for showcasing your individual estate sales or items you have had for sale, and you could also offer an RSS feed (allowing others to follow all your posts). You can also consider writing a blog. Keeping people engaged is the key to success for media marketing.

Sellers when you are considering estate sale companies ask them to show you their advertising and provide you with where and how they advertise. In rural areas and some metro areas some estate liquidators continue with print media as well for those that may not be internet connected.

There are also several organizations out there as well that you can join including the American Society of Estate Liquidators (they will educate you as estate liquidators and help you in learning to promote your company) The Antiques  & Collectible National Association also welcome membership.

There are so many websites available for estate sale companies and liquidations and many liquidators have dedicated internet techs and bloggers.
