I just read a blog that Bevin did on Realtor shows and it gave me a picture that I hope your not painting.
First off I would like to make it clear I love coming to AR to read some great blogs and getting some great pointers.
BUT, you can't reliy Souly on AR and your website or Blogges to generate the majority of your business. You must get out and hit the ad campaign you set up for your company.
You can do this by:
- Sending out newsletters
- putting together a flyer hand out and pass them out either by looking on the MLS for homes for sale in your target area and placing them on the door knobs or
- Going to every Real Estate company in your area and hand them out with maybe a bag of jellybeans
- Giving presentation on Staging at your local library or park district
- Attending your local Chamber of commence functions
- Joining business groups
There is a ton of other ways to get your name out there. You just can't expect people to find you, YOU must find them!
I think you get out of it, what you put into it... no matter what business you choose!
I hope this gives you a boost of confidence to get out there and show what you have to offer, because you do have a lot to offer and having the Internet is a great way to network, but in all reality it has only got us a hand full of clients.
Am I wrong about this? I would like to know if you believe the same as I do?
(another great idea and what we do is hire a kid from the neighborhood to pass out your flyers on the homes they see with for sale signs on them, it saves us gas money & the money we pay the kids can be written off as business expenditures:)
Hope to hear your ideas.
