Wednesday Objective: Explore joining a networking group.
The real question about joining a networking group is what is the return on investment of your time? In order to have a networking group pay off you need to establish yourself as the ‘go-to’ real estate expert. If participating in a networking group is interesting to you give it a solid 6 months. Each member of the group you belong to should be an A+ referrer. Each member of the group should refer 1 closing per year. Assess the culture of the group. If the group is genuinely sharing business and interacting than then investment can be well worth the time. If not and the culture of the group is one of waiting for referrals then the group might not be as powerful.
How can you add value to other group members?
- Do video reviews of other members on Facebook or other social media outlets.
- Send referrals! This goes back to the “Givers Gain” philosophy.
- Research various local networking groups. Pick one and check it out!
- Watch “The perfect elevator pitch” and develop your own unique elevator pitch! So that you are ready to sell yourself in front a networking group.
