Most people become a realtor with an expectation of having a lot of time, working their own hours and making a dream income. However, without the right strategy, many realtors soon become out of the inventory, and gone are the days when you can just rely on leads from word-of-mouth and referrals.
As per ARELLO (Association of Real Estate License Law Officials), there are more than 2 million active realtor licenses in the US. Most realtors have a perception that real estate involves opening the doors and negotiating deals. However, as a realtor, you’ll have to find people who can walk past your door, AKA, the buyer and seller leads.
Attending networking events is great, you might get some referrals once-in-a-while, but certainly, it won’t be enough to keep your pipeline full. So, what can you do?
Follow a System That Generates Leads On-Demand.
Yes, through an effective marketing system, you can fill your sales pipeline without attending the networking events that most realtors don’t even want to go to.

Real Estate Does Not Mean Easy Money.
Real Estate as a profession can be extremely rewarding in the long run. But when you are just starting out it can also be quite taxing.
You see, like any other industry your initial phase is going to be full of struggles. You may not make a lot of commissions in the beginning and you may have to work hard and long hours to build your own brand and clientele.
How do you succeed?
Building your clientele

Generate High-Quality Leads
If you are using Social Media Platforms to build awareness about yourself, you can use them to generate leads for your business too. But here’s the catch, most of these leads are cold, you have to plan your advertising campaigns very carefully in order to generate leads which will be relevant.
You will have to use a lot of filters to make sure you are targeting the right group of people and also make sure that your ads are actually able to guide them down the right path.
Close the Deal
