We put a lot of time and care into the things which make December ‘the most wonderful time of the year for us. But what about our businesses? How can we make sure they will develop and grow successfully in the coming year?
1. Draw the line and learn the lessons
Applying your own critical eye is one of the most important ways you can improve your business. Come the year's end, it's wise to sit down, reevaluate your tools and decisions and see what worked and what didn't.
You have to ask the right questions in order to better prepare for the coming year:
Are you budgeting for marketing and reaping the benefits of a solid strategy?
Does your agent website look as sleek and intuitive as you need it to be?
Are you advertising in the right places and to the right people?
Are you getting enough exposure?
Do the tools you have at your disposal generate plenty of leads?
Answer honestly and write down the ideas, then start planning your needs for the coming year and think of the strategies you will need to make your goals come true.
2. Plan ahead
Secure the tools needed to make 2017 successful and kick off the year, the right way. Make sure you have an all-in-one solution that will help you save time and money in the long run. Point2's marketing solutions offer just that, plus a web-based Online Office which gives you complete control over your marketing strategy at all times. Here are some of the things you can do with a marketing toolkit like the one mentioned:
In terms of online presence and presentation, a mobile-friendly agent website that you can maintain yourself goes a long way. Go further by creating individual property websites for your most promising listings -- home buyers love a home with a dedicated website!
Incubate your leads with an effective integrated CRM. Use drip email campaigns to keep engagement up, which is important considering that 70% of homebuyers forget their agent's name within a year.
You also get several advertising options designed to boost your exposure, both in terms of listings and as a local agent.
3. Get an edge with smart advertising
And speaking of exposure, it's crucial that you get your listings in front of as many eyes as possible, at the right time, in the right place. With a solution like Point2 you can get all the tools above, plus an extra edge with featured advertising on Point2's real estate portal Point2 Homes: $1,000 worth of ads each year included in their Professional toolkit or $6,000 worth of ads per year with the Elite toolkit, at a fraction of the cost.
