Written by Lanard Perry

Continued from page 1

One objective ofrepparttar workshop is to give each attendee essentiallyrepparttar 148380 same information you give when you go on listing presentations. It's kind of like a listing presentation in reverse, where they come to you as a group.

So, atrepparttar 148381 end of it each attendee will have a greater appreciation ofrepparttar 148382 advantages of using a Realtor, your marketing plan, contact number, email address, etc.

Be sure to follow up with a series of letters to continue buildingrepparttar 148383 relationship. As a general rule it takes 4 - 7 contacts before you develop enough rapport with prospects to earn their business, but it's well worthrepparttar 148384 effort. Make it easy on yourself and consider prewritten form letters that are ready made to copy, paste and send.

Every attendee will be a potential customer for you; as a seller and a buyer. After all, how many are likely to sell their properties without repparttar 148385 services of a Realtor?

Now, how many are likely to buy a property listed with a Realtor? Right, again! And guess who can be there when they need professional assistance?

So, here are a few final questions before I close. Do you know of another Realtor that host events like this on a regular basis?

How about one who hosts an Open House for his/her office? Okay, then how about one that conducts workshops on how to finance home loans? Still no?

Hopefully, you can now seerepparttar 148386 near endless possibilities for self promoting your services. And if you institutionalize them, meaning that you make them regular events, they could become part ofrepparttar 148387 services you provide that distinguishes you from your competitors.

So, whenever you hear somebody say location, location, location; think self-promotion, self-promotion, and self-promotion.
