marketing: How Newbies (or for that matter Oldies) Can Get Business - 10/31/15 11:52 PM
Reading AR this morning, there seem to be a lot of posts and questions about how to get clients. So I thought I would add my two cents, since it has been a long time since I last posted.
 
First of all the question should reall be "how do I get and keep clients" If you are only worried about the getting you wont be in business long.
 
Next many seem to think there is a quick and easy way. Not so; not going to happen. One thing and one ting only will help you get and keep clients ... WORK...TaDa... not very … (2 comments)

marketing: Internet Customers or Clients or how to close a deal long distance - 05/22/07 02:23 AM
Curious. I had a customer that I sold and almost the whole transaction was via the internet. (By the way I use customer instead of client as I don't think the internet can foster a client relationship). This guy appears at my office one day to see a house located in our market area.

Do you maintain a sphere of influence list, client list or mailing list? Is there a difference?
You bet there is!
When we first start out we are advised to create a sphere of influence. This is a list of people we could be expected to mail or contact about Real Estate and get at least a familiar reception. Gradually, over time, this becomes a mailing list. That is, it is a list of names that we add to from time to time and when the urge strikes we send them a letter or post card or perhaps flier.

marketing: Niche Marketing - 03/29/07 05:07 PM
Recently, on one of my blogs, someone mentioned "niche marketing".  As the market is getting bigger, rules are getting more complex and clients are demanding more, there has been a growth in the so call niche marketing adherents. A few years ago we would simply have called someone a specialist. Over on the Seattle PI Real Estate Professional Blog one of the regular bloggers has carved out a niche that includes pets (I think I also read that Seattle has more dogs than children so that might work).
