Developing the Daily Lead Generation Habit
What is the first and foremost important activity of a successful Listing Specialist? Of course, you already know the answer: lead generation.
In ancient times, our forefathers were hunter-gatherers. Back then, people migrated with their food source and hunting for the next meal was not an optional exercise.
No matter how scarce the surrounding food supply seemed, our ancestors would relentlessly chase their prey until they achieved success. For them, failure meant starvation and death. So when the food supply was abundant, they stockpiled and carefully preserved and stored the surplus. In good times and bad times they never took their eye off the ball.
If you want to be successful, you are not at liberty to treat lead generation as an optional exercise. Lead Generation is the ONE activity which allows all the other aspects of your career to become a reality. Prospecting is the cornerstone of your career.
