Marketing is very important for a new agent. What did you do at your first year? Did you do direct mailings, door knocking or cold calling. I've been building my network recently by talking to everyone I know that I'm an agent and joining a lot of investors' club(My goal is to become an investor eventually). I haven't done any direct mails or cold calling. I'm also working on my own website. My office manager told me to advertise on social media and she doesn't recommend a paid advertisement online or on the newspaper. My budget is tight as a new agent. Would love to hear any suggestions. Thank you.
