I find it really hard to fathom how most agents are getting their work done these days. I'm not a huge technology expert, but I am finding that some successful agents are not utilizing their technology wisely. I recently found out about 'blogging" and putting my listings free on multiple sites! The old ways of prospecting are still a great source of getting clients to share your vision is good, but realistically a more supported system of staying in touch is in order. I've been watching my expenses, and although Top Producer and Agent office are great products, they are relatively costly in this market. Some money savings things that I found, that I thoght I might share:
- Use Outlook to stage your messages for the month.
- Find free newsletter options on the web through co-marketing ideas (our warranty company provides one for us- First American Home Warranty
- Use Mail Merge (in Word) to do letters, make templates, and mass emails or messages to save money
- investigate bulk mailing options in your area and for your brokerage.
I do so much business in Short Sales and Investment properties, I would be lost without the tools that I have. I am investigating more ways to be more efficient in my business, with checklists and reminder systems. I'm positive that has what has made me successful.
