How CRE Professionals Can Boost Their Productivity
There’s only 24 hours in a day, yet some commercial real estate professionals are way more productive than others. What do they do that you don’t? How are they using their time more efficiently than you are? Learn how you can boost your productivity, and how our commercial real estate CRM software can help you, with these tips:
Make A Plan
Either you run the day, or the day runs you. Whether you would consider yourself a Type A person or not, every commercial real estate professional can benefit from having a plan and schedule for the day instead of just winging it. Before you leave the office each evening, plan out what your day will look like tomorrow. It’s best to block out windows of time for each task, such as cold calling, research, and responding to emails. Fit these office tasks around any previously scheduled meetings, presentations, and/or property tours. Within ClientLook CRM, you can easily set tasks and reminders for yourself, and as you’re making phone calls be sure to log an update of your conversation with that contact so you can refer back to it later.
Use A Virtual Assistant
Don’t ever be afraid to ask for help or to delegate tasks to someone else on your team. Data entry can be time consuming, so that’s one thing that you can easily send to our exclusive Virtual Assistant team to handle for you. While they are keeping your database up to date, you can be spending your valuable time on revenue generating tasks instead. You’ll be accomplishing more in less time and building your business. Talk about a win-win!
We all have those tasks that we dread doing; but why put it off any longer than you must? Instead, dive right in and get the things that you don’t want to do done first. Yes, first! If you can knock those items off your to-do list for the day, then you can spend the rest of your day focusing on the work that you enjoy doing instead. While you’re at it, try to accomplish the least time-consuming tasks early in your day. As you check things off your to-day list, it will boost your motivation and you will see how much you’re accomplishing in a short amount of time. By completing the tasks you dread, and the small tasks first, you’re freeing up your schedule to focus on the larger projects and the items that you enjoy most.
Use A CRM
All commercial real estate professionals should be using a CRM on a daily basis. Start your day with your CRM and end your day with your CRM. Not only will it keep you on schedule with the tasks you have set for yourself, but you will be able to quickly pull up any contact, property, or deal information that you’re looking for. There’s no need to go digging through files on your computer or through your email when everything can be accessed in an instant in your CRM. A CRM built specifically for the commercial real estate industry, like ClientLook, will help you stay more organized and help you boost your productivity.
