Relocate to Wisconsin : Non Profit can be FOR Your Profit....

Non Profit can be FOR Your Profit....

    In another lifetime,

 

I owned a marketing agency....the things I learned, the education I got and successes and failures have been invaluable to us in our real estate practice. Many things we do would not be done as well...take longer to learn or never be Marketingincluded at all in our custom marketing plans without this experience.

      As an agent, lender, inspector....anyone who is self employed...an independent contractor...is dependent on themselves or people they hire to make their business shine brightly....their services used often and the testimonials flowing.

    For the "planners" you have begun thinking about 2018......aNot for Profitnd starting that plan...the wheels in motion for record setting results. 

    Do you have a niche  or two ?  How carefully have you defined that client base that you are targeting ?  Do you know the best mediums to reach them ? What can you bring of value to them that isn't the same old "outstanding customer service" that every competitor uses in their marketing?

    What Not for profit cause(s) do you support ?   The easiest thing to do is write a check....and certainly that is welcome by any organization with limited means for raising funds.  The harder thing to do...and very often the thing that is needed most is your time. You may already have a skill that you can contribute....OR you may use this as an opportunity to learn new one(s) that help the organzation.  Make the people you meet a part of your sphere...let them see the "giving side" of you.  It isn't WHY you donate your efforts....it is often a bi-product of giving...people like to be associated with people who are generous with their time, thoughtful of others and share the same interests.

       If you don't have "Giving" and "Active Participation" in your plan....it should be.....we need a kinder, gentler nation....and it can begin with you.

       If you or anyone you know is looking for agents who genuinely care about their clients..Call the Hansons....honored to be of service in southeastern Wisconsin for all things real estate.

Great advice to all of us to get involved in the community - it makes us feel better and it might actually be good for our business!

Often enough contributing one's skills to help a worthy cause will be rewarded with business contacts.

Good morning, Sally and David --  these are times when thought-provoking posts like yours are especially needed.   For reflection.  And as a call to action.

Sally and David being a part of a service organization, church, or non-profit is a great way to connect with the community.  Those who do will be surprised how much business they will receive in return through their participation.

Sally and David- you two live what you preach!  Giving back to your community not only is a feel good thing, and the right thing to do, a side benefit will be the connections you make.

Good morning Sally K. & David L. Hanson .

Been trying to login to the Rain for 6 hours now.  I agree with Kathy Streib

I believe agents should be more involved in their branding. This means letting people know who you are and what you do. It is more than telling people what a super agent you are. It is about letting people know what kind of a person you are. 

When we volunteer for good causes that effort tells others what kind of a person we are and what we care about.

The consumer needs to know that agents care and are involved in giving to the community.

Great post. Thank you for sharing.

There are certainly plenty of opportunities out there...you just have to make the committment, decide on what you want to do, and more forward.

....we need a kinder, gentler nation... Gosh, is that ever an understatement with all that has happened this past year. We all need to strive to do a random act of kindness for someone each day and help change the world one person at a time.

Good morning, Sally K. & David L. Hanson you're absolutely right .... it's so difficult and takes alot of effort to participate physically...so much easier to write a check...but I've seen how those who participate receive business from it... and they are not top producers...
