There are many new agents entering the real estate business, and the first question asked is how do I find business without spending any money? Talk can be cheap, but it can also be “Free.”
There are many ways to find business without spending any money. One method of prospecting without spending any money is called NETWORKING.
Networking is the one source that is free. It's a method of marketing yourself and, in turn, becoming known to others as a real estate professional. Networking should be done every day, in one form or another. Wear your name badge or casual professional attire, and get yourself out of the office. Meet people!!
Join local organizations and clubs. The local chamber of commerce is a great source for meeting professionals. Join church, school and local branches of national organizations like the Rotary Club, The Elks (BPOE), The Masons and so many others.
There are networking groups that exist just for the purpose of meeting other professionals!!! Join one and offer the use of your office for a meeting. That will allow all of those group members to see where you work and become familiar with you, in your business environment.
If you have a subdivision that you're marketing within your office, ask the listing agent if you can use the model home to hold a meeting. The more people who see the product, the more likely there will be a new buyer surfacing!!!
Being Active is free. Join and become active in several organizations, as quickly as possible. If the phone is not ringing, and you don't have the money to make it ring, networking, not quitting or being idle, may just solve that problem.
