December Meetup in Maryland...THANK YOU Margaret and Alan

 

December Meetup in Maryland...THANK YOU Margaret and Alan

 

As you may know, Maryland Meetups have had lots of variety over the years.  We have had Happy Hours and luncheons, charity walks and Open Houses, all well attended, all wonderful, and many hosted by Margaret Rome!  Today Alan Gross of Prime Lending gave us the lowdown on the best ways to ensure that our clients, friends and family members:

Know Us, Like Us and Trust Us AND REMEMBER US!

 

Today's meetup was all about Appreciation Marketing, a fitting topic, considering most of us just celebrated Thanksgiving.  We have been grateful for our health, family, business and so much more! 

As we finish out 2013 and get ready for an exciting new year in the ever-changing world of Real Estate, determining the best way to help the most people and run a successful business is on the top of everyone's

mind.

 

Some take-a-ways from today's ActiveRain Meetup...

Did you know that there is a VERY small percentage of realtors and loan officers who keep in touch with their database, even though the best source of new business is your current business?

Did you know that there are 8 Things that are important to running a successful business?

  1. Lead Generation
  2. Database
  3. Prospecting
  4. Presentation Skills
  5. Follow Up Skills
  6. Closing Skills
  7. Social Media
  8. Mobile Marketing

Take a minute to grade yourself in those categories...do you have straight A's or are there some areas where you can make some improvement?  I bet that tweaking some areas will mean a HUGE increase in your business!

Are you looking to increase your business in 2014?

I will let you in on a little secret, you will only need a few things to be a HUGE SUCCESS...the Right Tools, the Right Systems, The Right Habits....CONSISTENTLY applied!  That last one is the key. 

There are so many shiny objects marketed to agents and lenders these days. How many times have you heard: 

"IT ONLY TAKES ONE SALE TO PAY FOR ITSELF ALL YEAR!!"?

Pick SOMETHING and WORK IT! 

I bet you will amaze yourself!

Hope you are attending a meetup near you, I know you will learn more than you thought possible.

Thank You Margaret Rome for hosting another wonderful event and Thank You Alan Gross for the conversation today...great info and great reminders!

It was great to see some new faces and many "old" ones (and I mean that in the most respectful and wonderful way!) today. 

The Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors has some great new digs...since I just became an affiliate, I look forward to visiting again!
