I remember when I started in this business... WAY BACK in January of 2009... that I had a lot of the more experienced agents telling me that I needed to get out and hit the pavement, knock on doors and hand out business cards. They told me that I needed to
GET MY BUTT OUT THERE and FIND MY CLIENTS!!!
Since I had a lot of experience with promoting past websites and social networking, my response to them was
WHY NOT LET MY CLIENTS COME FIND ME???
Don't get me wrong, I knock on doors and hand out business cards left and right, but most of my clients have found me online, whether it was a google search, them finding my blog, finding me on Zillow, Twitter, Facebook, AR, Trulia, etc etc etc...
Which brings me to my question to you:
How many different ways to you communicate with your clients?
For me, here is how it breaks down:
Some of my clients prefer a phone call first
A few of them want to meet face to face almost every time
MOST of my clients text me first
HALF of my clients send me messages on Facebook, plus when I am in the office I have my chat on...
A lot of my clients prefer email
NONE of my clients prefer contact by smoke signals. :)
What is your most common form of communication with your clients?
