Networking Works!!

By
Real Estate Sales Representative

I've long been an advocate of Networking and expanding your knowledge of others and others knowledge of you.  That's the main reason I write on-line articles, joined Active Rain, LinkedIn, and numerous other blogging sites.

My recently published book "How To Sell More Homes and Increase Your Income" has been a full time marketing effort. Between this and still being an active and high producing Home Seller and Training Others, time has been slim.

...how about that for blatant self-promotion!

In any case, over the course of the last month, all these efforts have started to reap some benefits.

In January, my book was featured in Realtor On-Line Magazine.

Last week, I was privileged enough to write an article in Sales Guru Jeffrey Gitomer's weekly ezine, "Sales Caffeine."  He also gave my book a very nice recommendation.

"If you're in real estate the object is sell more than one home to every customer.  This is a breakthrough book that tells how to build relationships, not just a check at closing.  As an investor in residential and commerical real estate, I recommend you get this book at once and convert a sale into a fortune."

-Jeffrey Gitomer, Author of The Little Red Book of Selling 

The point of this writing isn't simply to just mention my book a few times, but rather to let everyone know that networking and providing value to others is the simple formula to creating success!

We all can get frustrated when we don't see somewhat instant results from out marketing efforts.  If you stay consistent and desire to really provide value to others, success will come your way!

Stay consistent.  Keep believing.  You are the catalyst to your own success!!

Of course networking works.  Real estate is just one big networking game.

Isn't that the truth!  I want to sell a house to them and all of their friends.  It is all about seeing the bigger picture!  Those small little details and effort can really pay off in the future!

Kay, Thanks for the feedback!  Your Right!!

Jennifer, You are right on!  Discover the 'True" buying or selling motive and you will gain more referrals that you can imagine!  It's all about the relationship and truely helping.  I agree.  It's the little details that "they" remember.  Everyone catches the big stuff.
