  1. Know Your Marketing Budget: Assess where your marketing dollars are going and ensure they’re delivering a return on investment. Consider reallocating funds from third-party leads to more targeted, community-focused efforts.
  2. Market to Your Neighborhood: Start by marketing to your own neighborhood with targeted buyer and seller campaigns using personalized postcards with clear calls to action.
  3. Establish Yourself as the Neighborhood Expert: Become the go-to realtor in your community by extending your marketing efforts to a selected farm area, leveraging the same postcard strategy tailored to resonate with neighbors.
  4. Engage with Past Clients: Tap into the goldmine of past client relationships by maintaining regular communication, remembering key details about their lives, and offering value-added services beyond real estate transactions.
  5. Implement a Past Client Strategy: Develop a systematic approach to stay connected with past clients through quarterly phone calls, monthly newsletters, birthday and home anniversary messages, and thoughtful pop-by gifts.
  6. Nurture Business Relationships: Cultivate partnerships with local businesses such as insurance agents, plumbers, and cleaners to gain referrals and expand your network within the community.
  7. Leverage Social Media: Create a balanced social media strategy that showcases both real estate expertise and community engagement, directing followers to your website for more information.
  8. Active Involvement in Community Organizations: Demonstrate your commitment to the community by actively participating in local organizations, organizing joint events, and fostering meaningful connections.
  9. Utilize Cold Calling with Value: Approach cold calling with a focus on providing value rather than aggressive sales pitches, offering free resources like seasonal checklists to initiate conversations and build rapport.
  10. Door Knocking with Purpose: Combine door knocking with valuable resources like seasonal home maintenance tips to grab homeowners’ attention and initiate conversations about real estate needs.

I hope you’re feeling empowered and inspired to implement these proven strategies in your own real estate business.
