Branding can be applied to services and people as well. You try to bring him back on track and he says, “What I’m saying is important”. You would sit back, you would get the full blast of the stereo, and you’d get the real deal.
Part of being a good entrepreneur is to track the progress of your business periodically. Some people get so obsessed with these statistics and numbers that they often spend hours every night computing and plotting progress. For many businessmen, these metrics serve as a gauge on whether the company is doing well or not. But is tracking the metrics really that important? Isn’t the job of the accountants enough by computing the income generated by the company? Apparently, metrics isn’t just about the income garnered. There are other aspects of tracking involved.
Another huge consideration along with guaranteed uptime is the level of customer service you can count on when something goes wrong. Let’s face it at some point there will be a flood, a power outage, a plague of locusts, or server eating gnomes. How your ISP provides service when the chips are down is going to mean the difference between your IT departments planning a revolt, and your IT department actually revolting.
Once you decide to get a website, make your priority to get it up as quickly as possible. A website only has value if it’s public. Not only will it start making money for you, it will also begin accumulating domain authority in the search engines. Once the site is open you can continue to tweak it all you like. In fact the more tweaking you do the better. The search engines respect sites that continue to grow and change once they open.

As an agent you cannot worry about the things you cannot control, such as the behaviours of the other agents. You can only control your behaviours. There is a quote I love and try to honour and it is “Let deeds, not words be your adorning!” Too many agents talk too much and listen too little. To be able to succeed in your efforts to establish your brand, reputation and image, pay more attention to your behaviours and less attention to your words. If you do this, you will become known for your brand and be recognized as a different kind of agent who can be trusted. If they trust you, you can develop a relationship and then everything is possible, like making a sale and referring you to others. Branding is critical to your future. I wish you continued success!
