New agents: Do You Have Your Start-Up Plan?

January 1st, 2018 // 10:16 am @

New agents: Do You Have Your Start-Up Plan?

New agents: You need a prototype business plan! Here it is–the most popular start-up business plan for the new agent ever! Now in its 5th edition, with dozens of updates. Launch your career with confidence–proven precise business start-up plan, skills training, and motivation–all in one book. It’s time to plan for 2019. And, for newer agents, you need a prototype plan to keep you on track. Here it is!

Included:

Updated list of technology and marketing resources so new agents have dozens of resources at their fingertips–and don’t waste money

Updated list of technology the new agent needs, so the new agent doesn’t waste time or money on technology he doesn’t need at this point in his career

Updated list of technology trainers, so agents have additional resources to call upon

Updated real estate trends so the new real estate agent will understand his new profession and its opportunities and challenges

Advice from successful newer agents who are working in these markets

Advice from coaches/industry experts working in these markets to help new agents succeed in this competitive market

Information from new studies (from the National Association of Realtors’ Profile of Members and Survey of Buyers and Sellers) and Inman Select, for example, on the onboarding process (too many times onboarding is not given enough emphasis in real estate offices and new agents fail to ‘hit the ground’ running)

Advice on working the market you’re given—whether it’s a buyers’ or sellers’ market

New Additions–A Plan for What’s Next after Up and Running?

At the end of your four weeks, an evaluation for you to complete. What are you proud of? What do you want to keep working on? Evaluate yourself on your activities and attitude, and plan your next 6 months in the business. See the end-of-program evaluator in Unit 7.

At the end of your four weeks, a template to create a 60-day plan to extend your success with the Up and Running principles. See Unit 7. This is a great value to coaches who are supporting their new agents’ success, so they can extend their start-up plans until they are ‘unconsciously competent’.

Managers:

Save time, increase your retention of new agents. Get more loyalty. Make more money from your new hires!

Just $32.95 plus shipping. What a bargain to dramatically change your career for more success!
