Whether you're in the real estate or mortgage industry, there is always one constant. Are there any new ways to market and network available?
Let's face it, real estate agents attempt to network and establish relationships with mortgage originators, real estate appraisers, title companies, real estate attorneys and more. Mortgage originators attempt to network and establish relationships with real estate agents and brokers, real estate appraisers, title companies and more.
If you're a top producing agent I'm sure you get a ton of cold calls from rookie mortgage originators trying to solicit business from you. If you're a top producing mortgage originator you probably get tons of solicitations from rookie real estate agents.
Networking and establishing relationships is an integral part of any business but more so in the real estate and mortgage industries as relationships is what drives our business and directly relates to how successful or unsuccessful we are.
I was looking for a new way to market my mortgage services so I did a web search and came across OriginatorNation.com. OriginatorNation.com calls itself "The Mortgage Market Networking and Solution Portal." The site although centered on mortgage originators will provide user accounts to real estate agents, real estate appraisers, title companies, real estate attorneys, notary publics and more.
The main idea behind the site is to create a networking portal for those who want to network. For example, if I post my information on the site, I'm telling the rest of the user base to contact me with any special product offerings or services they have. The best part of it is that I get strong leads and quality service offerings without taking any phone calls anymore. I can simply add "Contact by email only". And let everyone know that I only want to communicate by email for the time being.
It's hard to say whether or not OriginatorNation.com will catch on but social networking sites have worked well in other industries. If you're in the mortgage industry and or real estate industry and looking for a new way of marketing your company and to network, I suggest checking out http://www.originatornation.com. After all, it's always great to hook up with the pros instead of being stuck with the "same-old" in our industries.
