Even if you are having a great summer sales season you should be starting to gather leads so that you will have a ready supply of fresh leads when the summer sales start to taper off. Gathering leads is one of the most important parts of the job, and it’s also one of the most difficult. But thinking outside of the box and staying current on trends will help you find new ways to get good leads. Here are a few new ways to generate leads that you might not have thought of before:

Guest Blogging

You should already have your own website and be using it to generate leads. But if those leads are drying up or if you want to maximize the leads you get from the Web you should band together with some other agents and guest blog on each other’s websites. Also look for local blogs and influencers that have a large following and approach them about guest blogging. When you guest blog you can write a short article or informational piece that will end with a link to your website or your email. So, you can get new leads from the exposure and build your authority in the local area. Guest blogging is a quick and easy way to leverage your blogging into new leads from a new audience.


These days everyone reads reviews online before they purchase anything, including a home. Reviews encourage new leads because buyers or sellers can see real-time feedback from other people that have worked with you. Facebook offers the chance to add reviews to your Facebook business page, or you can rely on sites like Yelp. You should also consider adding testimonials to your website if you don’t already have some on your website.

Get Into A Routine

Having a strong morning routine will keep you healthy and on track even when your days are chaotic. Get up at the same time each morning. Make sure that you get some exercise, even if it’s just a walk around the block or a quick bike ride. Then make sure that you eat a protein-rich breakfast so that you will stay full while you are out running around. Setting up a good morning routine will make it easier to stay focused and build momentum each day.

Get Enough Sleep

Not getting enough sleep can cause you to be irritable and to make silly mistakes. And when you’re dealing with the financial demands of buying and selling homes your mind needs to be awake and ready to go each day. It can be hard to go to bed early when it’s light outside long into the evening but you can use room darkening curtains or shades to make your bedroom nice and dark to help you sleep better. And make sure that you’re getting at least 8 full hours of sleep each night. If you can’t get a full 8 hours of sleep or more at night try to give yourself a power nap of 20-30 minutes during the day.
