I get most of my leads from personal contacts like next Thursday when the Business After Hours will be at MY office.  I enjoy networking with others and especially my agents.  Secondarily, Internet marketing through my website leads to untold numbers of calls and emails for information.  The key is FOLLOWUPS.  If you don't do it in a timely way, the lead will become stale.

What kind of leads are you looking for VB?

Much of your business is a bit different than a typical agent.

For me, I get my best results when I pick up the phone and ask clients and colleagues for referrals.

It depends where you are in your career, 1 yr, 5yr, 10+ years.

What you have the most of, time or money.

The resources with which you have to work. Lists, contacts, associations, collaborative partners.

Finally, your business plan identifies WHO your preferred customer is.

With that information valid direction can be given, otherwise is will be simply a 'try this' list. Bandit sign are still effective for a very specific market segment.
