Last Week for Best Practices Contest - FINAL WEEK!!!!!

By
Mortgage Banker with Larry Bettag - Cherry Creek Mortgage

THIS IS THE LAST WEEK! 

The FOURTH AND FINAL WEEK Monday, Sept 26th!!! 

Why Do A Contest in This Environment? 

  1. First, the environment that we are in is tough.  Really tough.  Some people are prospering.  Some people aren’t.  The fact is, even those who are prospering are doing it through work and effort and with a concerted effort to raise the production of their business. 
  2. The second motivator is theresources and giving spirit of the Active Rain Community as a whole.  There are so many great blogs, bloggers and writers, as well as successful business people in the Rain.  But has there ever been a forum for us to share all of our best practices in just one locale?     

So….let’s get to the contest…..

An awesome contest….simply put....

share one best business practice that you’re having success with or that you've used successfully to build your business…one that you feel, that if duplicated, will help others gain business and market share in this economy. 

Take your post and attach the link in the comment section here in this post.  Every week, I will identify the top 3 posts of the week and award theTalented in your business....please share!m 500 points.  Each of that week's winners  will qualify for the grand champion of September.  If you get nixed, relax, you'll have every week after Labor Day through September to crack a top three for that week and move onto the finals. 

For the Finals, there will be 5 places......the points for the grand finale are:

1)      First Place – 3,000 points

2)      Second Place – 2,500 points

3)      Third Place – 2,000 points

4)      Fourth Place – 1,500 points

5)      Fifth Place – 1000 points

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With Only 2 Weeks Left, The Contest Begins Each remaining Monday and will end September 30th

 

Final Weekly Awards announced on 10/3 

 

 The top 5 winners will be announced by October 7th

During this economy, wouldn’t it be great to share your best business practices.  Yep, you give up one greast business practice, but you pick up so much in return.  Active Rain is a community and this contest will help us have a community that bonds with each other and helps each other grow their business.  It really doesn't get any better than that.

Hi Larry.  Done.  Thanks for this program.  It encourages posts that focus on real estate practices and probably helps new agents who haven't yet focused on quality practices.

Additional Information

 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.”
(John 14:1-4, New King James Version) I review for BookSneeze
