Many of us wish that we had an extra hour or two built into each day so that we can get more done. While it’s impossible to add more time to the day, with careful planning, we can boost our productivity and get more done during the hours we have. Here are 4 ways to maximize your productivity, and how Referral Maker® CRM can help.
Prioritize your to-do list. If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed by the growing number of tasks on your to-do list, it’s time think about your priorities—What are the items on your list that absolutely have to get done? There’s a difference between important tasks—those that drive your business—and urgent tasks—the fires that pop up during the day that distract you from doing what’s important. Tasks like lead generation and meeting with your clients are things that are vital to your business; however, when something comes up, they’re often the first things that are sacrificed.
Each day, look at your to-do list and identify the one or two items that must get done that day—those are your priorities. Referral Maker real estate CRM can help you complete your priorities and the other items on your to-do list. Just log into the CRM and see your to-do list on your Dashboard.
Time block your day. Studies show that most people work best in 90-minute blocks of time—that’s the limit of our attention spans. Get more done by scheduling your day into 90-minute blocks. Referral Maker makes it easy to time-block your day. Simply select the Calendar tab and set up your weekly schedule into blocks.
Set goals. Goal setting is vital to your success in business and life. Create goals for the five major areas of your life—business, financial, personal, spiritual and family. As you achieve goals and milestones in one area, your success will spill over into other areas of your life as well. Referral Maker makes it easy to not only create 5-circile goals; it also helps you achieve them. Set milestones, set a deadline and track your progress.
Commit to your marketing. The most effective marketing campaigns keep you at the top of your clients’ minds. In order to stay there, you have to commit to your campaign and be consistent. Your monthly Marketing Flyers and eReports are a great opportunity to show your character and competence each and every month. Referral Maker can help you stay consistent by reminding you to send these items on time each month.
