Does your real estate business get a Perfect 10? 4/21/2008
Taken from: iPropertywebsites.com
I have worked with hundreds of successful business owners, coaches and real estate professionals over the years. They often agree that you should evaluate your business and make necessary changes every six months to remain competitive.
The real estate market is constantly changing; as is the technology that helps us with productivity, generating leads, getting homes "Sold" and most importantly, making our clients happy.
When was the last time you re-evaluated your business plan?
As a successful real estate broker, I often rate all aspects of my business and personal life on a scale from one to ten. Acknowledging that I must constantly evolve has helped me stay competitive and productive in this challenging market.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
1) Do you have a business plan? 1-10
2) Are you following your business plan? 1-10
3) How effective are you at generating leads? 1-10
4) How effective are you at converting leads? 1-10
5) Are you working with your desired type of clients? 1-10
6) Can all your listings be found online easily? 1-10
7) Are you utilizing the best technology for your business? 1-10
If you did not give yourself a 10 on everything, that's okay! Now you have a basic guide to help identify where your business needs improvement.
While each agent, regional market and business plan may be unique, there is one thing that can not be disputed in real estate: with more than 8 out of 10 buyers starting their search online, the internet is where you AND your listings need to be.
Get Your Listings Online with Single Property Websites
Single property websites are an amazing tool for your real estate business. They allow you to easily create a website completely dedicated to each of your properties! Anyone can have a site up in 10 minutes.
You may be thinking, "I already have a website!" or "how will this help me?" A personal website is a must today; however, it is for promoting your business first. A single listing website is for promoting the property first (sellers love this).
That said, there are still many advantages for agents. Property Websites will help you win more listings (for free), generate more qualified leads, wow sellers, improve your search engine rankings, syndicate across the internet, give buyers all the information they could ever need on a single property and so much more...
They're the ultimate virtual tour...only cheaper, more flexible and easier to create!
We are currently running a promotion that we're calling The Perfect 10 and we're literally giving away websites! If you've ever been curious to try this type of service out, now's the perfect opportunity.
There's no credit card needed to get started, it's free to set up an account and free to use for listings presentations. You simply pay one flat fee AFTER you take the listing.
