“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”
How often do you reach out to your industry partners and “help” them with their business plans or marketing? Helping each other with common goals is essential in creating relationships in the real estate industry. Word of mouth has always been the best source of advertising and of course FREE. Everybody likes free, and a good note is usually returned.
Try networking groups and meeting folks that work within the industry and exchanging information to see how the circle of “WOM” advertising can work for you!
