As in-person events are gradually coming back, now is the time to decide what kind of events you’re going to attend to get your name out there. Navigating the blend of virtual and in-person networking can help you strengthen your business connections, and Gavin Timms is going to share how you can kick your excuses to the curb and improve your net worth.
Every time you go to a REIA meeting, are you more likely to talk to familiar faces? Stop that! Every in-person meeting is prime networking time, and Gavin recommends that you chase down the oldest member of the group to chat them up. And by oldest member, he doesn’t mean age-wise. The oldest group member who’s been there the longest is more likely to know everyone. They’ll be a great resource to plug into a wider network.
Virtual meetups or virtual networking are not going away any time soon. So whether you find yourself in a Facebook group or a real estate forum, you can use that opportunity to provide value and answer questions. Then you can move that relationship offline in a casual way.
Don’t get complacent and talk to the same people over and over again. If your business is feeling stale, Gavin is throwing down a networking challenge. Pick up the phone and call three new people a day. That can mean bankers, brokers, Realtors, cash buyers, or just other wholesalers, but get out there and get to know some fresh faces!
