Recently, I was contacted to speak to my dear friend and co-author

of our most-sold book in Singapore called Get Rich Now of our best-selling book in Singapore titled Get Rich Now: 15

Strategies from a Self-made Millionaire Professor Dennis Wee. (Dr Wee is one of

Singapore's most popular entrepreneurs. Even though he hasn't completed his

college education. He was able to establish and begin building his own real

estate company, Dennis Wee Group, to become one of Singapore's most renowned real estate

estate businesses that produced S$3.8 billion worth of revenue in.)

I was asked by him to share some marketing secrets with his real estate

agents, and agents. I was very happy for the opportunity because I'm sure there's plenty

More that agents can do to position, brand and market their services.

Unfortunately, the majority of agents either in real estate or financial services

(insurance) or any other sector, tends to look at themselves as

salesperson. The way they view themselves will limit their growth as well as income!

In their minds, they think they're mere salespeople, they fail understand the

potential for advancing their careers into full-fledged businesses. There are

Here, I'm going to provide you with specific examples of how an agent can

identify himself with a basic branding and positioning

strategies I've employed alongside other clients to incredible results.

Many people think that being an agent in any field is like being

a salesperson. Someone who competes with everyone else

thousands of salespeople within the business. In some ways it's true.

Others are looking for similar bargains as you. It

is about who will win the deal first. So they are relentlessly going

on the horizon to a cold winter.

However, I am not a fan of cold prospecting. For me cold prospecting seems like a waste of time.

Do you think new agents don't stay around for very long? I'm convinced it's because

they realized that their heads cannot be put against the wall.

But there are ways you can make the table turn. In my speeches, I like to get questions

your audience: Wouldn't you prefer to be a hard worker to find potential customers, OR

would you prefer to let your prospects find for you?

The answer is obvious.

However, more than having less work and more leisure time, there are

more profound psychological benefits to having your prospects know that you are there

out instead of in the cold, you are better off cold-prospecting them. Simply put, if you have a desire, you should seek

Trust me when I say that it's an entirely new way of thinking. Imagine being a celeb.

It's been a while since the crisis began and people are doing their best to get in touch

with with. Consider stars from reality shows like Survivor and American

Idol... It's so powerful!

So how do you accomplish this?

Let's examine a common scenario:

Have a look. You'll see that all of them claim to be the

"specialist" in the area. If everyone is a specialist, then what is the definition of a

"But I'm different from everyone else. I'm more experienced in the field, quality,

etc..." you protest.

Let me make it clear. No matter what you are or what you

background is. If prospects don't understand this immediately, you are just

like everybody else. Whatever you consider yourself to be.

Remind me that if you are like every-body else that you're not, you're a nobody.

Remember It's all about their perception, not yours.

Instead of becoming just another specialist in your area, be different. So far

I've never encountered an agent who claims to be the
