Proactive Business Practices I Mastering “Blue Ocean” Activities
Most Small Business Owners (SBO)/ Real Estate Professionals utilize reactionary business practices. They are utilizing marketing techniques and practices that were unique and forward thinking 6 months ago. They react to market shifts as they happen rather than implement business practices that will keep them ahead of economic shifts. The idea of “blue ocean” is to make sure you have positioned your marketing, your business practices and your business strategies with proactive tools vs. reactionary responses. Agents will evaluate their businesses and business styles. They will create a plan to implement and “catch wind” that will allow them to be seen, heard and felt in their communities. They will “sail into blue ocean” vs. “swimming in red seas”.
