Creating Your Business Plan as We Prep for 2024

As a realtor with over 20+ years in the business I can say with confidence that the real estate industry is constantly evolving, and staying ahead of the curve is essential for success. It’s easy to get lost in the chaos of work and busy schedules but as we approach 2024, it’s important that we create a marketing strategy for the new year. Start thinking about how you can effectively market yourself and your properties so that you go into the year ready for anything. In this blog post, I’ll share valuable insights that’ll help you to craft an effective marketing strategy and trust me, it works!

1. Reflecting on 2023:

Take a step back and assess what worked and what didn’t in 2023. This self-evaluation is crucial for setting the stage for the year ahead. As realtors, we need to identify our sources of leads and sales. Did you get your clients from open houses? Did you do facebook ads? What were the wins and remember to ALWAYS follow up. Knowing what worked can better shape our 2024 strategy.

2. Addressing What Didn’t Work:

On the flip side, recognize not everything will work perfectly. Some strategies might have fallen short of expectations in 2023. Instead of giving up on them, you can allocate additional time and effort to make necessary improvements. This is a valuable lesson in risk management, showing that perseverance can lead to success. If an ad campaign didn’t work, what can we do differently this time around to get a better result? What we want to avoid is doing something repeatedly, that has been proven to not work!

3. Budgeting for Success:

Effective planning requires budgeting. It’s important to create a budget at the beginning of the year. This budget serves as a roadmap, outlining how much you’re willing to invest in your real estate business for the entire year. It’s a critical structure that helps ensure financial discipline and can even make your year just a little less stressful, at least when it comes to your finances.

4. Analyzing Expenses:

To make informed decisions, it’s vital to analyze where your money is going. Was it spent on Facebook ads, Zillow, cold calling, or postcards? By tracking your expenses, you can identify which channels brought in the most revenue. Allocate your resources accordingly to maximize your returns.

5. Seek Guidance and Collaboration:

The real estate market can be unpredictable, and realtors should collaborate with team leaders, managers, or anyone who can provide valuable insights. Working with others can offer different perspectives and strategies for success.

Most importantly, remember that you have to be patient! It may take 6 months to a year before you see significant results from your marketing efforts. It’s a long game, and patience is key. Remember, success in real estate is built on a foundation of planning and adaptation, and with the right strategy, you can make 2024 a remarkable year for your real estate business.
