Are you working on getting business today? I am. In fact it's what I do every day. My job is generating business. For any one wanting to work in real estate, as a career, generating business is the number one skill you must learn. First and foremost it requires work. Not hard work but consistent and persistent work. This means making a plan and sticking to it. Not for a month or for six months but for EVER. But where do you begin? What activities should you work on? When in doubt I always go to Google. If I (38 comments)

lead generation: Are You A Picker Or A Producer? - 10/15/11 08:25 AM
Generating business. Do you do it? Or are you relying on your Broker or your team leader to provide you with business? If you are not generating your own business then you are working a job. A job that can be snatched from you at any time. Personally, this is not a position I would want to be in.It’s also a position that will limit you in your career. You are depending on others to provide your income. To a Broker you bring less value to the table than an agent that brings business with them. You have very little negotiating (43 comments)
Are you ready? It's going to be complicated. My secret advice to agents about lead generation is to stop trying to figure it out and start doing it! It’s not so much what you do as it is that you do it. Be consistent. Wake up tomorrow morning and mail an expired listing letter to every expired/withdrawn in your market. Then get up every day thereafter and do the same thing. Do it forever. Then do the same thing for FSBOs and preforeclosures. Within about 90 days you will have a steady stream of listing leads coming in. Once you (81 comments)
If you answered "No" let me ask you this. Do you really believe that? Do you understand how lead generation works?The answer to the question should always be "yes". Here's why.Leads ALWAYS cost us something. Leads cost: Money Time Effort Or any combination of the above Most successful REALTORS®, or anyone in business for that matter, uses a combination of the three. If you are spending your time and effort on blogging, social networking, building relationships or whatever you do that doesn’t cost you money you still have a cost related to that time and effort. It may be a (31 comments)
lead generation: Leads can't be bought........they must be earned. - 09/01/08 02:03 AM
Hi foks. I am always reading and hearing about leads. How do you get them? What do you do with them? Have you bought leads from this or that company? Well, this got me thinking about.... what is a lead? A lead to me is someone that contacts me and tells me they want to sale or buy a house in the next 30 days and they were given my name by so and so whose house I sold last year. Leads are gold. Leads are money in the bank. They are ready to buy or sell and they are ready to work (75 comments)
lead generation: Did I tell you about the nice bridge I have for sale? - 11/06/06 04:14 PM
I read on another forum today, a post, from a Realtor wanting to put together a class action suit against housevalues.com. I have actually never visited this web site but thought I best check it out to see what all the fuss is about. Well, basically it is nothing more than a “lead” generating service. My question is, why would a Realtor fall for this stuff in the first place? The only thing I could find on their site is a place to put in my zip code and then an info request form pops up. By filling out this form, (49 comments)
