Takeaways + Tactics
- One way we can reach people more easily is by becoming an authority in our niche. One of the best strategies for doing so is to use social media platforms and content marketing.
- In an industry where technology has changed many of the ways we communicate and generate leads, it’s vital for us to have a student mindset and refrain from assuming that we’re the smartest person in the room.
- One of the best tactics for attracting more referrals involves providing value to other agents. We have to give referrals and find ways for helping others before we ask for help.
At the beginning of the episode, we talked about building trust, giving value, and how people are more likely to share what worked and what didn’t for them in an industry where the entrepreneurial mindset is present.
We also shared insights on:
- How video marketing can help us position ourselves as experts
- Why we don’t need expensive equipment to get started
- How we can benefit from interviewing people from other industries as well
Video marketing is one of the best ways to share information and build trust. Because it’s a better attention-grabber than many other forms of marketing, it will probably never go away. As a result, more agents should invest their time in this form of content marketing to build trust and position themselves as authorities in their niche.
