Run Your Business Like A Business Series for REALTORS® Tip One
The best tip I can ever give is to “Get up, Get Dressed, & Get to Work and Start with Lead Generation”. If you work better in the office go to the office. If you can work from home, stay home. If you get more work done at Starbucks, go to Starbucks. Go to the best place where you can produce new business for your business.
Once you’re up and ready for work think about if you should check your email right away or not. I know that if I check email I end up putting out fires or responding to emails that could have waited until 11am. For me lead generation is the best way to start my day. If I’m not working on lead generation I’m not building future lead opportunities. Some agents can check email first then work on lead generation. If you can do this and stay on track with lead generation then go for it!
Tip One – Summary
- Get up and go to work
- Schedule your lead generation time and put it in your digital calendar so it syncs with your phone, laptop and tablet.
- You may also choose a to do list. I use Gtasks app from Google on my phone. The to do list can also be located in your Google Gmail account.
Next week I’ll provide tips on how to generate new leads. If you can’t wait for this post, sign up for the Realist class at www.mredllc.com. Classes are free if you’re an agent in Northern Illinois and a member of Midwest Real Estate Data. Also consider putting everyone you know in an excel spreadsheet with Name, Address, phone and email address. Once you’ve created your list find the top people that would refer you if you asked them to. You’ll be more than prepared to begin next week.
