  • Topic idea - Riches In The Niches

 

  • Best Idea Contest : Entries will be judged on what was chosen for their niche, how the niche will be marketed and branded. They also must explain what lead to this choice, the "back story": personal reason?  passion?  education?  experience?  special skills?  other? 

 

  • Topic summary - Pick The Niche That Will Get You Rich!

 

  • Premise: You get to keep all your present skills, education and experience, but you have to start your real estate business completely over today. You have no database, no leads, no prior sales; it's ground zero, day one!

 

  • Choose One Niche Only i.e. one client type, or one property type, or one location type, or one specialty service type to build your niche business on.

 

  • 1,000 points for each entry
    5,000 points for the best entry 
    2,500 points for the second place entry
    1,500 points for the third place entry
  • Learning Opportunity: Readers will learn what it takes to pursue this niche, how to market it and create a brand while getting to know the author better through the back story. They will also learn the power of focus vs. multi-tasking.

 

  • Is there a specific time of year? This contest is good to go any month, let's get going!

 

  • 250 word minimum.

 

  • Two graphic minimum, use a photo and logo (create your logo if one doesn't exist) that best represents your niche.

 

  • Debe Maxwell, CRS here's my submission.

 

It's Finally Here!

Hi Thomas

I think it's a great idea for a challenge, for those who already have a niche or two, but more so for those who do not.

Good morning, Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, ePRO, CRS, RCS-D you have it all laid out and ready to go.... if I were a judge, you'd have my vote.... and I'd love to participate in your contest.... every agent would be wise to narrow their reach and focus on a niche.... they'll make more money than being on a wing and a prayer....

Getting agents to focus their business is a worthy effort.

I think the days of the generalist is passing so this is a great way to get people to thinking of a better way to do business.

Looking forward to reading what changes people will make.

So glad to see this contest idea featured. I would give it two gold stars!

Let's make this contest happen! Starting from scratch right now...hmmm...what would I do. When you relocate...you are also starting over from scratch. Should be some great entries.

Been there, done that and own the T-shirt! When I moved to a new town 25 years ago, starting over is exactly what I had to do! I chose my niche and worked it. Great idea.

I like the niche I'm already working Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, ePRO, CRS, RCS-D so could you clarify as to if we have to pick a niche we are NOT currently working, please.
