I’m not really one for NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS but I suppose it’s a good time to review how and what I have been doing up to now.
With almost 38 years of experience in this thing we call life I know that I can always try to do something better or be more efficient than what I have in the past. This is a great time to look for better ways to do what I do, better. Being in the Real Estate business for the last 5 years and having to sell and market properties for my clients, it doesn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out that if I can sell more properties, more often, I will make more money and more of my clients will be happy. This sounds easier than it is as there are a couple of hurdles that need to be overcome.
A couple that comes to mind, in no specific order are:
1. List at the right price
2. Build up a database of buyers / investors
3. Regular communication to clients / buyers / sellers
4. Better and more efficient use of technology, websites, blogs and social networking platforms ….. and and and
…… Not that any of this is new but it’s good to have a constant reminder. More happy clients also means more “word of mouth” marketing that your clients do on your behalf ….. still one of the best forms of marketing.
So I guess after all of this, my New Years Resolution for my business is not just to work “smarter” in stead of “harder” but to have more of my clients do my marketing for me ……
