Shake Your Moneymaker

Do you know where your stream of income sources are tonight?  Maybe they are snoozing undisturbed in your database, maybe their name is scribbled on a piece of paper in your pocket or your purse.  Or worse yet, they may be swirling around unrecorded on the "to do" list in your head.  In order to shake your moneymaker(s) you must be able to put your hands on them.  My moneymakers are my past client database and my blogs.

My memory is one of my strengths, but one mind can only contain so much retrievable data.  My moment of reckoning came late last year when I saw a listing (coulda, woulda, shouda been mine) pop up on the MLS.  What?  They listed with someone else?  How could that be when only three months ago she told me they were going to wait a year?  Yes, I know, three months is far too long to wait to contact a homeowner with selling on her mind.  But I thought we had a relationship, rapport and so on so forth.  Nature abhors a vacuum and I obviously allowed another agent to step in and fill the gaping hole I left in our communication.  Mea culpa. 

 

 2012 may be the Year of the Dragon on the Chinese Calendar but  Norma Toering & Team will track time, contacts, efforts and results with the daily care and feeding of our database.  We will calendar contacts months in advance and note every client contact.  As month one of 2012 draws to a close I find this new habit is becoming second nature, and I'm enjoying this more methodical but also more rewarding approach.  

I'm a big fan of the one-page business plan and this year mine is pretty simple--Blog daily (online presence), work that database (offline presence) and shake your moneymaker(s) often.
