referralmarketing: Do not visualize achieving a goal - 01/25/16 12:30 AM

Real Estate Agents, chances are you have come across dozens of books, seminars, and training programs on how to set and achieve goals. So you have probably heard something like this:
You must visualize the experience of having achieved your goal. Imagine the good feelings associated with that achievement. Get excited. The more clearly you can “see” yourself crossing the finish line, the more likely you are to do so.
This is, perhaps, the most common advice given in the field of goal setting.
But is this true?
The answer might surprise you. It’s not.

referralmarketing: How to qualify past clients for Referral Marketing - 12/07/15 10:51 PM
It is natural to want to include every client you have ever worked with in your Referral Marketing database, but this is not a good idea.
Why?
There are some clients who – for whatever reason – will never use your services again nor refer business to you. So why waste time and money marketing to them? Instead, the only names that should be in your database are those who are, or could potentially become, loyal to you.
 
 
How do you qualify past clients for Referral Marketing? Its easy, just ask yourself a few simple questions:

Networking Works! Share your #1 networking tip.
Anyone who follows my blog knows one of my favorite things to do is to get out and Network.  I go to as many Business After Hour events as I possibly can, and try to get to as many community events as possible as well.  I have found in my 40 plus years in sales that nothing takes the place of what use to be referred to as getting out and "Pressing The Flesh".  Today "Pressing The Flesh" has been replaced by a much more politically correct word "Networking", and I am a firm believer Networking … (0 comments)

Are you new to real estate?
If you've just started out in the real estate business, you've probably already discovered that those first few months can be financially challenging.
Many new real estate agents forget that they’re going into business for themselves; and they don’t realize that they need building tools, resources, and proven business practices to help guide them to a successful career.
If you are like most most new real estate agents then you will find it hard to:
manage expenses when you haven’t earned any commission income yet; develop a business with a limited budget and limited resources; and get started on … (0 comments)

Have you ever wondered what a real estate agent should and shoudn't do, during an open house? Here are some great tips on this blog post.
Over the years I have held and attended hundreds of open houses. Some are fantastically boring and others are incredibly fun - depending which builder is giving away the wine, catered food and bizarre entertainment. I once witnessed a guy who stayed in a frozen position for 10 minutes at a time. He was painted completely bronze. He wore a cowboy hat and stood there like an idiot in the blazing heat. I still don't understand … (5 comments)

As parents and kids are getting ready to get back to school, how safe are backpacks? A very timely and informational post.
How Safe Are Backpacks. Can they cause injuries to your child? Are they too heavy, do they carry their weight properly, are they being packed properly for even weight distribution? Kids get backaches because they carry all their text and note books, supplies, and personal items with them. These can become serious problems. The recommended carry weight is no more that 10-15% of the child’s body weight. Heavy backpacks can cause back and neck strain, chronic or lifelong back pain. … (2 comments)

referralmarketing: 8 Body Language Tips for Realtors - 09/02/15 08:03 AM
We’ve all heard about body language. When someone’s arms are crossed, it usually means that they are being impatient, closed off, and insecure. Or when someone rolls their eyes upwards during a conversation, they are often considered to be skeptical and in disagreement with what is being said.
But what we interpret in body language is not always true. After all, a person might have their arms crossed just because they are cold and wish to warm-up. Or, they may be looking up because their kid has a soccer game that night and they’re worried about rain!
People can misinterpret body language. So realtors, you want … (3 comments)

While I happily sing the praises of prospecting phone calls, and social media marketing, it can’t be denied that real estate is a business built on relationships, and your strongest relationships, or your Sphere of Influence (SOI), are your most reliable referral source.
