Be a Narcissist
Really, it's O.K. We just won't tell yo mama. In today's world of selfies & instagram ( all photos ) & facebook, it is officially alright to self promote with your picture.... everywhere. But the problem is, everyone is doing it so how do we stand out? Easy... just be prepared and look for odd opportunities. Here is one example:
When you go listen to music, meet the band at a break and ask to get a pic of you on stage alone or with a
couple of them. Then post it or send out a postcard as if
you are the musician. I got calls from everyone that likes or plays music. and had a great conversation with each.
Best part is, that because I segment my database, I now have more folks in my "musician" & "likes concerts" categories that I can search and engage again later.
Hmmmm, I hate to do the honesty thing but... this is a repeat from early June. However, the summer is almost over and this opportunity is fleeting. Most communities have free "concerts in the park" at multiple locations throughout the summer. Research and know them all. Then either go buy a dozen $8.00 portable lawn chairs or take 3-4 blankets and go early and... spread out. Most of your clients would love to go and maybe take their kids but by the time they get off work and get there the best spots are taken. Save them a spot and then relax and get to know them. No business, just relationship building. You'll be a hero and a human. You might even be an intersting and successful real estate agent.
Why would you care about that? Cuzitmatters...
