As a Keller Williams broker and trainer I have found a need for some quick tips and tricks to help associates run their business more efficiently and smoother. I have been a Keller Williams agent since 1998 and a broker since 2004 and I believe this gives me a unique view of the real estate side of our tools. It’s not just about having the technology, you need to know how to use it!
Agents let technology be a crutch sometimes and use it as an excuse to play victim and not do what they need to do to grow their real estate business. I’m not here to distract you, but to empower you with small tips and tricks that you can use on an daily basis to make more sales happen and get more listings!
Let’s start with the absolute basics: Take baby steps. If you are not very experienced in technology, don’t try to become a “techy” over night! This is a marathon, not a sprint. Take for example, I have an agent that I have been coaching for almost a year. When he first came to me, he barely knew how to turn on his computer and certainly not have an iPad, iPhone or feel knowledgable in technology. By the way, this has nothing to do with age if you were thinking that. After small weekly sessions, he is now very technology confident and even helping others!
Focus on learning 1 piece at a time. You don’t lose 50 pounds over night (without surgical help) and so don’t sit at a computer for 10 hours strait and expect to know it all. Because I’m a Keller Williams agent, this blog is going to be focused mostly toward Keller Williams tools. If you start reading and discover that you want more information about Keller Williams, I would be happy to share.
