For most people a new year means new goals. Here are a few to consider adding to your business-related list. The good news: If you accomplish goal #1, the rest fall into place easily.
1. Attend the 2018 RE/MAX R4 Convention
There’s nothing in the industry like R4. The connections, the content, the activities, the recharge – each of these covers the investment you’re making in your career. Add a private concert by Jon Bon Jovi, and the returns are even greater. Make this the year you attend R4. Nothing will have a bigger impact on your business. R4 is February 26-March 1 at the MGM Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Register now!
2. Build your network of contacts
At R4, you’re mixed in with thousands of the world’s top real estate professionals. These are fascinating people, and here’s your chance to get to know them. Look for opportunities to say hello and have a conversation. The result could be a referral, a great tip, a new friend or just a couple great minutes of talk. All of those outcomes are worth the effort. (Hint: Looking for a great place to network? Purchase your ticket for the Welcome Reception at Topgolf, a fresh concept in driving ranges with a fabulous view of the Las Vegas strip. With cocktails, appetizers and the company of fellow agents it’s the best way to kick off your R4 experience).
3. Take advantage of tools and resources
The Approved Supplier MarketPlace is an essential R4 stop. You’ll find discounted products and special offerings exclusive to RE/MAX agents. For instance, stop in to learn more about BombBomb Social Prompt and another innovations available at no cost in many regions.
4. Refresh your look
The MarketPlace is also the best place to find business cards, yard signs, promotional items and other material updated with the refreshed RE/MAX branding. If you’ve been hesitating, here’s your chance to start. If you’ve only dipped your toe in the refresh, here’s the place to dive in. (No reason to wait; the water’s fine.)
The new look was created after surveying the preferences of more than 20,000 consumers. Modern, bright and designed to work seamlessly across digital communications, switching over to the refreshed logos in 2018 is a great way to put your best foot forward.
5. Take a class
RE/MAX University is hosting live courses at R4 for some of the most popular professional certifications, including Certified New Home Specialist and Accredited Commercial Professional. And when you return home, keep your education going.
Those are just a few of the goals you can knock off your list with one quick trip to Las Vegas this spring.
