We are now in the last week of Jannuary, how are you feeling about 2014? If you seem like most realtor experts (and the majority of people ), you get so excited with this new year and intending be the best you can be. You plan your new diet regimen; you participate in a new gym. You develop a brand-new business plan that is going to lead you to additional real estate closings than you have previously had before.
The fact is that sadly, however, many of us lose drive. We lack the energy. It’s already challenging for me to pass by McDo or In-N-Out Burger without thinking about having a burger and fries– and it’s not even one month from the New Year.
Researches show that it takes ten days to completely purify the body and reduce cravings for this kind of temptations such as delicious desserts and salty treats. So, if you can sustain a healthy diet for a time frame of ten to fourteen days, then it’s most likely that from that point forward, you have a chance for your resolution.
The same goes for your daily endeavors as a real estate agent. If it takes ten days to get the toxins from your body, could the same also apply to your real estate practices? Presume, I told you that you only needed self-discipline? Can you do it? Would you be able to time block, prospect, market, and set planned visits– so for the next ten days? And, do you think that probably your huge outcomes would inspire you to consistently ten more?
If you are trying to find some activities that can increase your real estate income in 2014, check out my realtor guideline:
1. Call a few good friends and former clients. (Ideally, tell them that you are still in the real estate business.).
2. Enhancement your database. Make sure that all of your former clients from the last few years are included on the list. Double check addresses by getting access to your MLS tax rolls to make certain that your previous customers and sphere of influence has not moved on without you.
3. Look at your site. Make sure that all of your contact details is up to date, and have the site on an evaluation drive. Do the links still work? Are the articles still on time?
4. Review your agent bio (and your picture). Is the details up to date? Does your bio discuss the advantages of dealing with you? Do you think that your photo creates trust in your audience?
5. Check your marketing materials, and restore them if they do not have current information.
6. Check out an email campaign or any email campaigns that you already have in use. Check or create auto-responders to ensure that you have an online marketing plan that supports top-of-mind awareness with your clients.
7. Create a surveying plan. Draft letters from scratch or buy a sequence of letters to use when prospecting for new customers and sellers.
8. Remain to be a community expert. Examine properties available for sale in your location– despite the fact that you do not have buyers for those particular estates.
9. Think about incorporating FSBO conversion as part of your 2014 business strategy. Offer something important to homeowners of those property.
10. Update the photos on your directories or make and post video clips of your listings to YouTube or any other video sites.
11. Take a look at your current list presentation. Does it show you as knowledgeable and tech-savvy? Or else, consider how you can include more of that relevant information into your current listing presentation– possibly even shifting the presentation to your ipad if you have not actually done this.
12. Establish a program for marketing Expired listings. Examine available programs or create your own, then alloted time to put that program into action.
13. Create a Facebook fan page and think about an online social media posting plan in order that you can engage friends and associates of the local community into your social media blog posts.
14. Overview your current tool and programs. Are you using the latest and greatest softwares to get the job done? Or, are you still behind the times using outdated methods? Check out or register or professional advancement courses that will help you to become the best that you can be.
With these fourteen actions and a little bit of willpower, you should be well on your way to results in 2014!
