Managing Real Estate Broker with Realty One Group Preview 6694

DOES YOUR BROKER SEE MORE VALUE IN COLDCALLING AND DOORKNOCKING THAN  A FOCUSED BLOG AND SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY? If the answer is yes you may want to think about trading him or her in for a new model. A Broker without adequate foresight into where the productive marketing for realestate business is headed is about to become extinct.  Trends are changing quickly and agents that are stuck with these shortsighted dinosaurs need to run to the nearest exit and seek out a supportive Leader that encourages social networking and current marketing trends.

Not mine, thank goodness.  He is trying to be the "stellar" broker. And certainly willing to go with the flo.

The Do Not Call Law was supported by over 90% of Americans, because they HATE Cold Calls.   Incredibly, there are still some "Trainers" and "Coaches" that promote it.   And my guess is that same percentage of Americans do not want Salespeople banging on their doors.

Get with the Times, or Retire!

Tom~I remember those days! We had Monday and Wednesday office cold calling nights. I much prefer utilizing the online social media tools. Best.
