By far the best thing that I did for my business in 2011 was to sign up for and implement what I learned from the IMSD (Internet Marketing Specialist Designation Course) I have been a technology trainer in real estate for the past 15 years. Last year when I met Ben Kinney I decided it would be better for me to endorse his program than to try come up with training material on own because these guys have it mastered!
IMSD developed this training for real estate professionals who see the immense potential in online marketing but can't seem to get it working in their own business.
Here are three reasons why so many people are joining IMSD:
- 1) The teaching is practical. It simply tells you, "How do you win business using Social media, blogging, Craigslist, SEO, etc."
- 2) You actually implement each strategy that you learn instead of just taking notes and thinking you will do it "someday".
- 3) It works! Do what these guys recommend and you'll see your business grow.
Honestly, I facilitated this course in my office with about 20 agents and they all agreed that the Internet Marketing Specialist Designation Course was a great use of their time and money well spent. All of the agents that follow through with the course and implemented what they learned increased their business. There was not an agent in the room that could say they didn't get at least one closing as a result of what they implements from the IMSD.
One of the things I like best about the IMSD is that they are always trying to keep it fresh and up to date unlike many of the designation courses that are offered through NAR and other organizations. They often have guest speaker and trainers who excel in a certain area to offer additional advise. In the spirit of keeping it fresh... they are starting a whole new updated series on January 6th. Check it out and see what you think. There is a 30 day money back guarantee. Although I am posting this as part of a contest for the day (to win the new iPad3). I think this is the BEST course out there and that is why I volunteered my time to facilitate it in my office!
The second best thing I did in 2011 to help my business was attend Inman Connect and Agent Reboot in NYC and can't wait to head back there next week. Who is joining me? I know that Ben Kinney and Chad Hyams will be there... Will you be?
