One of the best ways for us to keep improving our skills and getting better is to network with successful people in our industry. People always say, “invite a rich person out to lunch so you can be rich too.”
The same applies for real estate. We can invite successful Agents or Coaches out for lunch or a coffee. It’s a great way to get advice, tips and inspiration. I have done this in the past and still continue to do so.
Here’s a good question: What if you could take 25 Top Agents, Coaches or Trainers out for a coffee for a 20 minute conversation with each of them in just 5 days? That would be something, wouldn’t it? I know I would love this. You could learn from your coffee mentor their top 3 tips for generating more business as a Realtor and building a satisfying and fulfilling long-term career. I think that would be fantastic.
I am working on a new and exciting project to be able to deliver this to you. Stay tuned for more updates…………………..
Respect Your Customer’s “Inbox”
I sign up for a lot of email and newsletter lists online to see how other people market themselves.
I feel the most important takeaway I have learned from email marketing is to respect your customer’s inbox. You might be wondering why I use the word “customer” in this context? It’s appropriate because it was an exchange of value–I gave the person my email address with the expectation that I would receive emails which were of interest and helpful to me. A fair trade. We get bombarded everyday online by websites wanting our email address. Remember this when you get an email address from a prospective customer. Be responsible with your email marketing.
I’m writing this post this morning because last week I signed up to be on a person’s email list to have access to a training type video–I signed up on the evening of September 30. Since then I have received 14 emails from this person trying to sell me one of his products. Crazy!! I have lost respect and admiration for him even though he is recognized as an expert in his field.
Have you had a similar experience lately? I sure hope not.
