Did you know that the magic number of the estimated world population is 6,612,227,120 ? I’d say there is plenty of business to go around all we have to do is go after it and seek it!
Did you know there are approximately 302,623,872 people in the United States? I still think with the United States population alone there still is plenty of business to go around, again all we have to do is go after it and seek it.

Business Cards-Do you have a tag line? Photo? Your best number to be reached? How about your designations, your web address. What about the famous words….GOOGLE ME!
Let’s not forget the back of the card, use it and ask for referrals.
Name tags-It’s simple just put it on. Don’t leave home without it! I bet your name tag will generate an additional real estate conversation or two.
Get Involved-The Board of Realtors, organizations, local politics, Chamber of Commerce, Toastmasters, Volunteer. You get the point, get involved in life and real estate will follow.
Be Seen and Heard-If you attend any group functions such as seminars and training sessions, speak up, speak out! I don’t mean be obnoxious, simply participate and get recognized.
Print Materials- Create personalized materials with all of your contact info, remember the customer chose you to buy and/or sell real estate, that’s right you, not your company!
Don’t be generic….Get personal….
Voice Mail-Record a talking billboard, state your name, your hours of operation and don’t forget your website. Sometimes a voice mail is the 1st contact that a customer will have with you.
Mailings-Be cost efficient, go ahead send just listed and just sold but supplement your mailings with postcard style schedules.
Good ideas are NFL Football Schedule, Baseball Schedule, School Schedule, Community Event Schedule.
I guarantee that one day you will walk into a house and see one of your schedules.
Online Marketing- Do I even have to go there? If you are here and still don’t get, refer to the 1000′s of post here on Activerain.
Be Good to People- The best way to self promote is “Walk the Walk!” and “Talk the Talk!” and follow the golden rule. In our business, no publicity is definitely better than bad publicity so be yourself but most importantly be good to people.
Do yourself a favor and learn To Be Your Biggest Fan…Self Promote! If you won’t do it, someone else will, doesn’t everyone know a Realtor?
“When we truly care for ourselves, it becomes possible to care far more profoundly about other people. The more alert and sensitive we are to our own needs, the more loving and generous we can be toward others.”
