Because you’re reading this it’s a pretty safe gamble that you are already at least a fairly savvy marketer. I’m going to reckon that you already comprehend the value of CPA sites and the internet when it comes to marketing your firm and you’re probably at least looking at the potential of Facebook and Twitter to promote your business. Utilizing these sites can bring in new customers, but it requires forbearance and it can be a bit tricky. Here are a few pragmatic guidelines to help you determine what to focus on. If you’re rolling your eyes at the thought of using twitter to build your practice you’re not entirely wrong. There is a stigma that you’ll need to get around.
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.
Select your selling team with care including investment bankers, attorneys, wealth managers, business brokers, and accountants. They advise looking for competency, experience, reputation, chemistry, and availability in your advisors. A list of advisors to choose from are listed in the appendices.
When you record, obviously today, for example, if you were to record “Tarkus” today, you wouldn’t have to do today what we had to do then. Because it was 20 minutes long, we would have to mark out edit points. Because we weren’t going to play for 20 minutes perfectly, all three of us.

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!
