I think holidays are one of the easiest ways to advertise. Candy bags or mugs with candy given out for free with business card. These days free stuff for people, is a nice thing. Also if you give them out by hand with smile, shows how much more you care.
I know an agent, she does Easter egg for kids. She does it in her farming area. I think that is fun and great for kids in the neighborhood. Also gets you involved with the community. So like I said holidays for it.
It’s a good way to get exposure. Holidays give you themes and easy ways to plan how to advertise yourself around that time.
Lead generating. May be what I may call the one thing I probably don’t like much in this industry. Yet it is so important.
A lot agents do cold calling. Some still do the door to door visits. More likely in the warmer months to come depending where you live. You are going to spend a few hours a day for this.
So find what works best for you. You want to be confident and comfortable in this job. Don’t feel like you are forcing it or uncomfortable. People will sense that.
It took me a while to fine out what good way to lead gen. And always remind your friends and family. That’s another way to lead gen.
