Why Consistency is Key, Especially at the End of the Year

Continuing to do your activities now will plant the seeds for your sales next year.

Continuing to do your activities now will plant the seeds for your sales next year.

One of the biggest traits that separate an agent from a professional is consistency. While agents typically call it a year as soon as the calendar strikes December 1st, professionals keep working. Although professionals may lighten their work load at this time of year, they still strive to maintain consistency in their daily life. Why is consistency so important?

Continue to build trust. Consistency builds trust. How? When you send your Marketing Flyers and eReports each month, like clockwork, your clients begin to expect them. They’ll look forward to hearing from you and receiving great information. This not only helps breed trust, it also strengthens your relationships with them.

Stay in habit. Habits are hard to create, but oh so easy to break. When you take an extended period of time away from your daily activities, it can be tough to get back in the habit of doing them again. Maintaining consistency helps you maintain your good habits.

Set the stage for next year’s referrals. Although you may not be closing as many deals at this time of year, you are sowing the seeds for next year’s business. By staying consistent and doing your daily lead generating activities now, you’re setting the stage for a great start of the new year.
