By holding myself to a higher standard than those around me.  When you do a job well, others will be referred to you.  I like to attract my clients rather than chase them.

I sometimes prospect for leads, to which there are lots of great youtube tutorials on doing so effectively. I also have had success using Marketing agents at Lion-Rank.com, they are pricey but worth every penny.  They built my site SarahWilliamsRealty.com and then ran SEO for me. Surprised as most people may be I still get an insane amount of referrals from the Crossfit Community I'm a part of.

 Work your sphere of influence, SOI.  These are the people who know you or know of you from someone else.  This is a people business and people like o do business with people they know.  

FSBO and Expired are okay but a tough way to generate leads.  Working your SOI is easier & more enjoyable.  Good luck Leanne Carpenter
