2016 4th Qtr Review/Winning Plan & Productive Blogging Challenge!

This is our entry into the contest: 2016 4th Qtr Review/Winning Plan & Productive Blogging Challenge! sponsored by Bob Crane.

 

*** This is a re-write after Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint brought to my attention that most of the post had "vanished"! ***

 

In April of this year I wrote: Is Marketing Your Strong Suit? Our 100 Day Checkup... - another contest sponsored by Bob Crane that reflected on past lead sources and a new approach we had implemented.

 

The direct mail campaign described in that post has been a success.

 

We learned that it’s effective - and it results in numerous leads.

 

We learned that listings in that price range have fewer showings and sell more slowly than the lower price ranges.

 

So we are expanding the price range to include the lower price range where the bulk of homes sell.

 

In addition to the above, we get “leads” (business) from the following sources:

Agent Referrals
Active Rain Agent Referrals
Active Rain Readers
Corporate Relocation

 

 

 

For the 4th Quarter, the emphasis will be on Corporate Relocation (touching base with decision makers) and Past Clients and Sphere of Influence (something that took second place to the direct mail campaign for most of the year).

 

Perhaps a venture into "Probate" as well - will have to touch base with Kathleen Daniels and/or Sally K. & David L. Hanson 

 

Also, by the end of October my "medical journey" that began in July 2014 will be coming to a successful conclusion.  So - I will be out of pocket on October 17th, and again on October 27th and 28th - no plans to heave a laptop around in the hospital!

 

All in all a good year for us, with 2017 promising to be even better!

Always good to do a review of what is working and what is not, good to see so many things working well for you.

Great plans and maybe tomorrow I will share what we have been up to if I am finally not too busy to actually report out.  Our plan has been so effective we have hired 2 more admin personnel and more agents on the way.
