The advice that everyone gets when they are looking for a job or wanting to learn more in their industry is to attend networking events. If you are in this situation, it is a great idea to attend an event. Now the big question is, what happens next?

Well, you probably know by now that there is more to networking than just showing up, distributing business cards and enjoying the activities on hand. The best way to network is to sell “you as a brand.” Go to the event and allow yourself to interact with people; discuss who you are and what you do by focusing on your experience.

The most important thing to remember, however, is that it takes a little preparation and practice.

9 Tips That Can Help Make the Event a Success.

Set a goal

Before going, ask yourself the specific reason for attending this event. Set a solid, realistic and achievable goal. For instance, say that by the end of the night, your goal was to interact and meet three new individuals. Setting up goals can be beneficial and gives you a purpose for attending.

Dressing the Part

As much as people like ignoring the facts, the reality is that the first impression you make is always important. Do some research and check with the organizer or look online for the dress code. Make sure you pick a professional outfit to look professional. Wear something comfortable and fits you well as this will help you exude the needed confidence.

Take Your Business Cards with You

If you want to ensure that people remember and contact you when they need the service you are providing, hand them your business cards. Always bring a few more cards than you think you’ll need. Make sure they are properly protected in a case to make sure they are not damaged in any way. Think about printing on a thicker card stock to add additional protection such as 16PT, 22PT gloss laminated card, painted edge business card or 32PT thick business card.

Be Effective in Your Introduction

A firm handshake, a smile and an introduction are the things that should define your presence. Take note of the person’s name, and use it in conversation. This will help you look more sincere and professional. For trick to help remember names, see “The Five Best Tricks to Remember Names.”

The Principle of Two Ears and One Mouth

They say that we have two ears so we can listen more than we speak. Apply this in your dialogue. Ask the other person a question as opposed to talking about yourself. People get more attentive when information is being demanded from them.

Sincerity and Interest Win

Most people approach the issue of networking from a gaining something perspective. The best way to look sincere is to list a few questions about the person’s background and ask them.

Be Concise

When you get your turn to say what is important to you, state it in two or three sentences. People lose interest very quickly when you keep telling endless tales. Stay focused and to the points.

Take Notes

This is the easiest way to remember important details. It also shows that you take yourself seriously. Not only will it help you remember everything that occurred during the event, but it will be useful when following up.

After the Networking Event,  Follow Up

Look through the business cards you received and make sure you follow up with individuals who you would like to stay in touch with. Set up a time to meet for coffee or a quick lunch to discuss more.

Some people think that the ubiquity of technology renders it all-powerful. Although realtors often use the internet to market their business, that isn’t the only avenue to reach customers. Plenty of people still seek out traditional print marketing materials, and some individuals may not have access or do not have the time to navigate it.

Therefore, agents should look into some of the following real estate print materials to increase traffic to their businesses, including realtor business cards, brochures, real estate signs and full service EDDM®.

Brochures

Brochures are available in different sizes and options, allowing real estate agents to present information to interested parties in a digestible manner. Instead of reading text on a website, potential consumers can skim through the brochures to gain a visual sense of what the real estate agents have to offer. Furthermore, they can look at brief descriptions and contact information, allowing them to decide if they want to pursue a further relationship with the company. Real estate companies can also place brochures in a variety of offices and businesses.

Business Cards

At Primo Print, we offer a large selection of business cards and printing options. Select the right realtor business cards including 14PT, 16PT and thick 32PT business card. Make a statement.

Sometimes, real estate agents end up meeting people who could become customers, but these relationships do not always start to form in a business setting. For example, they may meet individuals at a social gathering who are interested in the services of a real estate agent. If they have business cards on hand, they can provide these interested parties with important contact information. Real estate agents also might go to shows where they meet with other individuals in corresponding fields. By exchanging information, they can form strong bonds.

Signs

Many real estate companies have shops set up in their local communities. On a busy street, however, people might just walk by without ever noticing the shop; that is where signs come into play. Placing a custom sign in the window of the real estate company helps to attract attention. Also, real estate signs can convey important information about the real estate company. It acts as a marketing display that convinces people to check out more information. Real estate agents also want to make sure that they have signs in the yards of their clients. By placing signs here, they are letting the rest of the community know that they are available to assist them too.

Full Service EDDM® and Mailing Material

Put your business in front of the people who matter most. Let the pros at Primo Print take care of the paperwork, processing and delivery with Full Service EDDM.

Real estate companies can also let the local community know about their services through traditional mail. Therefore, they want to look into items such as postcards and flyers. When they select the information to include, they should make sure that they choose material that does not resemble spam in any way. Some people are incredulous to material that they receive in the mail and worry that they could be scammed. Find out more about Full Service EDDM® by watching our video tutorial.

Choosing professional images and material that presents information in an articulate manner helps people trust the company. With full service EDDM®, a realtor can send oversized postcards to a targeted audience starting at 26¢ per home including postage.

 Outdoor Feather Flags

Selecting our teardrop or feather flag is a great choice for realtors. These flags can grab the attention of potential purchasers and increase awareness. It’s key to grab the attention of passerby, and having a colorful and attention grabbing promo flag can do the trick. Custom flags that are cost-effective can increase the interest of a property and create more leads. We offer two types: teardrop flags and feather flags. Both can be used for either indoor or outdoor use. You have the option to purchase optional hardware such as a ground stake and pole for outdoor use, or a pole and cross base for indoor use.

Using the internet to advertise services is important to do in the modern era. However, real estate agents do not want to forget about services that worked for their industry in the past. By doing so, they can have a powerful blend of services that market their businesses accurately in the modern age.
