Being active in the community... the REAL one you live in Gene Joyce . Go to events, join clubs, get out there anywhere people shake hands and visit. I have one friend who's prospecting consists of having coffee at McDonald's every day from 9 to 10:30 and she has more business than she can handle.

Gene, there are many different methods and each person should figure out their best method and work it hard. You can't do everything. When I first started I reached out to my sphere (as everyone should) and I did get business from there. I also held open houses. I built a portion of my business from there. Lastly, I work Internet leads. They were better 12 years ago because not many agents were doing that. Now, 12 years later, 75-80% of my business comes from my sphere and referrals. I do get some business from FB and other Internet sources such as people finding me in a Google search. I also receive a fair portion of agent referrals. This is for buyers and sellers.

The best method is one that suits your style, personality and way of doing business and that you will work consistently. For me, that is direct mail, referrals, repeat clients, networking and blogging.
