William: Jan 17 is coming along, what is your plan after???
You must find resources to stay hard at it for at least 1 year, have blind faith, work hard and watch your results daily to improve every day.
If you do this, it is just impossible not to get what you want!
Thank you so much Daniel for the encouragement! yes I'm back driving the School Bus. My game plan is in between my trips I used the Mojo app on the iPad " Mojo on the go"
to make my calls. I'm trying to have a minimal of 500 dials or 30 contacts. At times its challenging
because sometimes I at an area with no signal. Or not enough time to call. Or when I get home I'm just so mentally strained
I don't feel like calling. " But you have to do what you don't want to do at a high level to succeed!"
My strategy, call through my expired when I get a chance to call. After I dial through those. Do my follow-ups.
Then get on three line dialer and make cold calls. That's my plan until I get enough listings to quit the bus and call full time.
I have a theory, that there is evolution to a real estate agent.
#1 work your butt off to get listings, example... Cold calling, door knocking, open house, anything to get some close sales.
#2 after you have some close sales and you have some money saved up start a farm of about 1500 to 2000 homes or properties.
Make sure you have enough funds to market to the farm for one whole year. You start the farm off with an 8 x 8.
eight letters or postcards, flyers, mail them something of value for eight weeks. After that mail them something of value
every two weeks for the rest of the year.
#3 money is in your database. So work on your SOI past clients, and adopt all those buyers who bought your listing. Adopt them!!
Send them an email weekly, snail mail them monthly, call them quarterly, I add a pop by as well every three months or so. Studies have shown
a real estate is cheaper to keep the client then prospect a new one.
#4 diversify!!!! Once you have money coming in make sure you put some aside for a rainy day. But most of all try to invest in some income property
that will pay you some passive income so after a while you don't have to work as hard your passive income can sustain your livelihood.
I'm only been a real estate a little over five years. I took a little bit from my top producers in my office and others to develop this plan.
This is my business plan for me. If you find it interesting you can adopt it for yourselves. But I love cold calling and that's going to help me achieve my goals for me and my family!
