Why stop blogging when you're busy? This morning, I read a post by Amy Hahn that was featured and discussed how she has to stop blogging because the blogging worked to grow her business.
Does that make sense? Something is working, so let's stop doing it? What amazed me even more is that all the comments were just about congratulating her on getting the new leads and referrals. Not a single person, until my comment, pointed out that if she stops doing what she's doing, the leads and referrals are going to stop coming in too.
Doesn't that make more sense?
Here's her logic, paraphrased: I've been blogging and with my efforts, I got two buyer leads and a referral. I'm so busy with my three new potential clients, that I can't find the time to continue my efforts to pick up new buyers, sellers, or referrals.
Do you see the flaws in that logic? From day one, aren't you told about the peaks and valleys of real estate? The average agent gets a client and gets so wrapped up in that client that they forget about their business that they're running. That one client closes and there are no other clients waiting for that agent, so the agent has to start all over again trying to get one client.
If you can't multi-task in this business, it's not for you. You can't work with just one or three people at a time. You need to be consistently and constantly prospecting to avoid peaks and valleys! And if this logic doesn't make sense to you, I would be happy to work your database and pass on a referral fee. Having multiple balls in the air is the art of true Real Estate.
Stopping the blogging because it's working is one of the "silliest" things I've heard...
