Host open house often.  If you don't have listings, ask your colleagues if they'll allow you hold any of their listings open.

Shuchi Agrawal - most effective is - REFERRALS! The highest ROI and best quality leads you'll get from referrals.

You can supplement that with other lead generation techniques - should you want to spend money elsewhere.

Face to face communication and give everyone you talk to a card.  Call everyone you know and let them be aware of your new profession Then call them again in a month or so and again and again.  People have short memories. 

 

The worst way is buying leads...Money wasted and I believe MOST agents will agree.

I would say Facebook. The reach that you have whenever you "tag" people would surprise you.

Yesterday, Feb 26,  while awaiting the buyer agent and client, I scratched out 23 ways an agent can get buyer and seller leads. Some of these had 5 subsets. Many have no direct costs, some minimal costs, none with extravagant costs.

The issue is NEVER how to generate leads.

The question is, 'What are you willing to do?"

IDWDT is the syndrome that destines an agent to aspire to mediocracy.

Let me shed a little lite on this. Some agents, desiring buyer and seller leads are so afflicted with IDWDT syndrome, the won't attach their name badge. So, what are you REALLY willing to do?

"I Don't Wanna Do That" is the self-talk of those who possess the most costly thought in the business world. That possession, that assumption is revealed in the words, "I know."  That is the moment you quit listening and learning.
