I’M Sebastian malinovski and if you’re new here please consider subscribing, don’t forget that rinky-dinky Bally thingy-thingy button, you don’t hit that Bell button. It’S like you, don’t even exist. Okay, let’s get into it. Let’S talk about the digital mayor. What does that mean? Essentially, it means you need to grow a local following you need to grow your tribe. The key to taking your real estate business to the next level is for everyone in the community to get to know you and going back just to give you a quick story.
When I started rebuilding my real estate business years ago, I stopped focusing on making cold calls essentially chasing leads one to one, and I started focusing on different questions and the biggest question I had was: how can I communicate to everybody in my community? How do I get the community to look at me not as a real estate agent but a community leader, and that’s how I started creating my new real estate strategies, my new systems, this article will specifically talk about being the digital mayor.
What does it take? What is that all about, and yes, it’s to grow your tribe, but why do you grow a tribe? Why is it necessary for any real estate agent to grow their tribe or essentially grow their local influence to be a micro celebrity in their city? I’Ll give you three examples: three names of people that you may know being in the real estate industry number one Gary Vaynerchuk number, two Ryan Serhant know three Tom ferry.
I figure I’d come up with some names that most agents are aware of. Let’S talk about Gary Vaynerchuk first: is he an influencer? Yes? Does he have a following or a tribe? Yes, a pretty big one. He is a business influencer and many real estate agents know him and follow him. Let’S take a look at Ryan Serhant he’s the guy from million dollar listing in New York. Does he have a following? Yes, is he an influencer? Yes, he’s a real estate agent out in New York, but but obviously his business is on another level.
Why? Because he’s got a huge following he’s: an influencer he’s the digital mayor. He has a tribe. Now, let’s look at Tom ferry. Most real estate agents know him as the real estate coach does. He have influence? Yes, he has his own tribe. He has a following of real estate agents, so you can see how each one of these people have influence in one way, Gary Vaynerchuk in the business world Ryan Serhant when it comes to local influence, he’s an agent and, of course, Tom ferry.
He has a following of real estate agents, so how does that apply to you? How can you take this concept and implement that into your business? Well, essentially, you have to do the same thing. The quickest, the easiest way of doing that is to actually create connection content. I mention that in the very last article connection, content is when you actually go out into the community and you interview, for example, a business owner or an entrepreneur.
You set up your article camera and you have a quick, 20 30 40 minute discussion and you record that then you take that content and you put it out online. This is going to start growing your local influence, because now people aren’t going to be looking at you as just another salesperson that is chasing a commission dollar. They will look at you as a local, influencer and authority, somebody that cares about the local community and the people that live in it, not just about selling homes, and when you look that as not just another salesperson, but somebody that cares about their community.
That’S when you start growing your tribe, your local influence and here’s. The interesting thing that happens with this article that local business owner takes that content and spreads it online on their social media platforms and guess what now this other influencer a business owner is sharing you with the community so instantly you get hundreds or thousands of eyeballs. Looking back at you and that’s how it grows, you create one article in exchange, you can get hundreds or thousands of eyeballs looking back at you and you keep doing that over and over so you’re leveraging the community to have a win-win situation: you’re helping that business Owner attract clients because now you’re doing them a favor, you’re marketing them and they’re doing you a favor by spreading who you are to the community.
Does that make sense? And that’s how you grow your tribe? That’S how you grow your local influence and become the digital mayor. Here’S the bottom line. This is what it all boils down to. If you genuinely care about your community, your community will genuinely care about you. You have to be a leader and every successful leader has a following. That does two things your tribe will promote you and protect.
You. Have you noticed online? Let’S take Gary Vaynerchuk, for example, he will put out a piece of content and that content may spark. What’S the word, I’m looking for friction that piece of content will create friction among people online. The true followers of Gary Vaynerchuk they’re, going to protect him they’re going to defend him online, and you will see those comments on Facebook, for example, they’ll protect them against the people that may not even know what Gary is all about.
They’Re going to start bashing Gary online, for whatever reason we all see this happen on lines with all influencers. Your tribe will protect you because they know that you are there for them to help them. Your tribe will also spread your content. Gary’S content gets spread. Constantly love them or hate, that’s not what this article is about. I want you to see the point in this that God has massive influence, but you can also have the same influence in your local city, the concepts the techniques are the same and when you pay attention to what influences are doing and actually bring that into your Real estate business, which, of course I show how to do in tribe agent how to take somebody like Gary Vaynerchuk, see what they’re doing reverse-engineer it.
So you can apply it to your business. That’S really when your business will start to take off but notice how this is the very last step. You have to have the foundation in place because, when your community will will start sharing your content and they will start referring business to you, you have to make sure that your foundation or your systems are there already. Last thing you want is a flood of quality leads coming in, because, when you’re being referred, those type of leads are obviously better quality.
Last thing you want is to disappoint these people bottom line. If you want to grow your tribe, be the digital mayor and start being looked at as a community leader, a community influencer start caring about your community question of the day.
