Your Homework Assignment for the Weekend

OK kids, back to class!  :-)

This weekend do the following:

  1. Make a list of all your marketing efforts - examples are:
    • Emails, calls, etc. to your past clients and sphere of influence
    • Are you printing brochures, postcards to mail or hand out
    • Blogging
    • Listing syndication
    • Press Releases
    • Social netowrking
    • Video uploads
  2. Make a spreadsheet that tracks all your marketing efforts to include sign calls, Internet leads, referrals, etc.
  3. Include how much you spend on each effort that is hard money spent
  4. Calculate how many hours you spend a month on each (or your admin) and then add your hourly rate to figure out how much you are "spending" on these efforts

Maintain the spreadsheet for one month and analyze where most of your leads are coming from.

Adjust your marketing plan by spending more time and money and the efforts that give you the most leads.

Track your leads for one more month. What are your results? Did your leads increase - stay the same? Keep this routine for 6 months and see if your results improve.

You MUST track your leads, otherwise you are wasting your time and money out the window.
