If you work in the real estate world, then you probably know how important it is to change up your routine – not only for your sanity, but to also gain new clients.
Getting out of your comfort zone and making changes can initiate greater opportunities for yourself and your business, so why not be a little bold?
Especially with 94% of millennials and 84% of baby boomers using technology to home search, it’s important to utilize social media in order to reach your clientele.
Think Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Post daily and interact with feedback and comments. Use Facebook or Instagram Live to showcase houses.
Most realtors probably have a fear of acting like a “car salesman” – especially when it comes to referrals.
But working with family or friends helps you grow your business and your confidence! Referrals can take a long time to develop, but have a high reward; it can be more enjoyable to work with people you already know, and these referrals probably have a higher level of trust in you. While it may be intimidating to approach family members and friends for referrals, it’s worth those possible awkward conversations.
Expanding Your Network
Any opportunity that presents itself to join meetings or conferences, take it. Not only will you enhance your network, but you’ll be able to gather and bounce ideas off of people in the same industry as you.
You learn more by involving yourself more.
If you are feeling stuck in the mud, then it’s always important to reflect on some of the things you can change and update in your work life. Those who succeed are constantly changing the way they work – now it’s your turn.
