I've marketed that when I was actively working..... Custom builder will build on your lot with your plan or his.... write blog posts.... mail postcards to owners of lots.... he could go partners with a land owner.... establish a price for the lot.... find a buyer for a custom home on that lot... and you have a deal....

In this case, I would go directly to the agents (perhaps via permission to attend an office meeting?) and let them know that if they have clients purchasing a lot with the intent to hire a builder, working with your builder would provide commission - and make sure your builder will do this! Have a formal agreement how this would work - say 20% of commission at contract signing, 40% after framing, and the balance at completion. We have builders in the area offering these incentives for agents to recommend them to clients.

Most buyers want to choose their own builder first. Then they look for a lot. There are many builders that will build on any lot even though they might not advertise that. Talk to a few builders, and see how they work. I have one that offers 2% on the base price sale amount. Add that to whatever you get for the lot sale if you list it or represent the buyer on the lot.

I think, it also depends on the location, but online marketing can give you unlimited exposure, so it is up to  time you want to invest and your budget.
