Meet, Network and Meet Some More
Attending networking events requires time and comittment which is often why people push these events to the side.
You may not have the time, or you might not see the long term benefits. As a real estate agent or any business owner its crucial to be involved with your community and other local businesses, by networking and having a prominent name/reputation in your community your business will also become known. Clients will associate you with the person to contact for their investing needs, and recommend you to their family and friends.
Work hard, and go the extra mile
It sounds cliché but it really works! By working hard for your current clients in turn reaps its own rewards, referrals, word of mouth, and positive reviews. Your clients are a source of new business. They have friends, colleagues and family who could be landlords or know someone that is. They may also have other rental properties themselves not currently managed by you. By building trust and a relationship with your clients they will be more likely to move all their properties over to you – do the work and reap the benefits.
Create a Blog
A blog is a fantastic way to reach potential clients and the community. By writing your blogs on your website and then sharing them on social media channels this drives traffic to your website. The other benefit is when someone is searching for information on something related to your blog, your blog will come up in google. By using keywords and phrases in the headline of your blog the further up on google results your blog will appear. You will also start to become known as an expert and leader in your field. Win, Win, Win!
Be involved online
Engage, comment and post online! Whether it is in groups, on articles or comments on posts get involved. Of course make sure it is relevant to your market and not a comment on a funny video you have seen. Your online presense speaks volumes about who you are and the world is watching. Make it positive and impactful.
Write a Business Plan
This may seem obvious, but a lot of businesses don’t have a business plan, they don’t have written goals, they don’t have a marketing plan or strategy. If you don’t have these you can be sure your competitors do. If you don’t plan you may not reach your goals leaving you feeling disappointed and frustrated. Planning and setting goals are the key to success. Goals also create a great way of looking back and analysing your business. It can be hard sometimes to think you have not achieved much but looking back on where you were 6 months ago can be extremely positive. If the results are not as good as you would like it can also be a kick starter into making a new plan to achieve your goals.
