37 Ways Not to Suck at Real Estate: The Video

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain

Earlier this week my friend Ben joined me at ActiveRain University to take an honest look at the business of a lot of agents. We called the class '37 Ways Not to Suck at Real Estate'. I know, a little aggressive but the reality is, some of us suck. I'll admit it, I suck at certain things and could certainly improve and if you won't admit it yourself, then you really need to watch this.

There were over 2200 people that registered for the webinar. Unfortunately the max capacity is 1000 so only that many got to listen in live. If you were one of the unlucky ones that didn't get a chance to hear, for your viewing pleasure we have the recording. 

I hope that you are closing so many transactions that you don't have time for improvement. Nothing would make me feel better. The reality is though, the average person in this business could learn something from Ben. He shares a lot of the things that have taken him from a brand new agent six years ago to being on pace to close over 500 transactions with his team this year. It's a staggering number in my mind but after listening to him, you'll see how it's possible. Even if you can find one little thing he does and adapt it to your business it could mean a substantial benefit.

I told you all about Ben when we announced the class but in case you missed it the first time around, read up on why you should spend 50 minutes watching this video. Based on some of the feedback we've gotten already, you won't be disappointed.

This webinar was presented by IMSD, a designation Ben designed after getting tons of requests for personal coaching. IMSD is all of Ben's systems in a box. At the end of the video he offers a special discount to get IMSD for a ridiculous discount, but you have to act by Friday Sunday. (not a reason to buy, just an incentive to buy......kind of like the Tax Credit last year). If you are interested in signing up after watching, go to the IMSD Sign Up Page and use the discount code: 37Ways

The way the caveman did it was smoke signals, filers chiseled out of granite stacked for distribution down at the local river bed laundry and having pterodactyl fly over with sky riders in tow. With today's media, the principles of reach, frequency and creative passion have not changed. But the delivery system to grab way more market share than others in it has. Harness the media streams, stock the real estate shelves for access round the clock by buyers not even in your time zone, zip code to win more trips to the long table with all the tall leather swiveling cushy chairs at the real estate closing. Great videos of the ABC's we all need to revist, incorporate in to our dog and pony wearing the "R".

That rocked!  Thank you very much!  


i have been seriously thinking about hiring a VA and now I am convinced.  My next concern is hiring the right one and using a reputable company.  Any advice?  Or maybe a webinar on this topic coming up?
