The most successful real estate agents have developed daily habits and routines to help keep them motivated and determined to succeed in the industry. Here are a few tips to start building daily productivity habits and set yourself on the path to success.
1. Establish a morning routine.
Whether it’s working out first thing in the morning, or jumping right in to checking the email inbox and reviewing new listings in your community, starting with a routine will kick the day off on the right note.
2. Invest in your brand.
Being a real estate agent is not much different than being an entrepreneur—the success or failure of your business is up to you. It’s important to spend a few moments each day investing back into your own brand. Design a new marketing postcard or email, create and add some relevant content to your professional website, or spend time optimizing your listing pages.
3. Post on social media.
Social media can be one of the most effective marketing tactics for real estate agents, so make sue to take a moment each day to post to promote your services on a Facebook business page, a Linked In page or on Instagram.
4. Educate yourself.
Staying on top of industry trends and neighborhood news is essential for real estate agents. Find time during the day to read the local newspaper, catch up on industry trade publications, or drive through a neighborhood you may be less familiar with.
5. Build relationships.
Developing lasting relationships is key to getting referrals and expanding your business as a real estate agent. Each day, make some time to go out for coffee, make a phone call, or shoot an email to a valued contact.
6. Plan ahead.
At the end of each day, set yourself up to work efficiently by checking your calendar and making a schedule for the next day that accommodates your morning routine, your sales appointments, and a few breaks throughout the day to work in each of your daily habits.
