Deciding who you are is an important part of any internet marketing strategy. Well, it’s part of any marketing strategy when done well.
Knowing your Mission, Vision, and Beliefs now will help you attract talent later, when you grow beyond the beginnings, and begin to elevate your success through the levels of business, at which point you will be growing exponentially.
For example, in real estate, someday you will probably hit a ceiling of achievement. You are human after all, and can only do so much. If you are lead generating, and working with buyers and sellers, and doing all of the administrative work, you will max out at a certain number of deals per year. So, your next step will be to grow and to hire.
And that’s where the solid foundation of your Mission, Vision, Beliefs, and Brand will fully come to focus and help you build your brand without effort or trouble.
To begin, I suggest that you create a solid Mission Statement. This will be the focus on the main objectives of your business. It’s a statement that explains “why” you are in business. This can include a promise of some kind of a commitment to overall satisfaction. It’s about the quality and service or product that you provide.
The Vision statement is WHERE you are going. What your business will be, and look like, after you have built it, and completed all of the desired goals.
Now to your beliefs. These tie in with your core values. What do YOU believe? How do YOU practice your business? A belief could be: “Our Number One goal is YOUR number one goal!” Or, it could be a list of beliefs such as core values. Take Zappos for example. They have an entire list of what their beliefs are, and these have become their Core Values.
It’s your choice of how you list your beliefs, whether through one statement or as a list. After all, it’s your business and your choice, so do it as if YOU believe it!
Here’s an example of the Keller Williams Belief System. They have gone as far as creating a training video with hand motions and sayings to help their members remember each one, and together as a whole.
• Win-Win: Or no deal.
• Integrity: Do the right thing.
• Customers: Always come first.
• Commitment: In all things.
• Communication: Seek first to understand.
• Creativity: Ideas before results.
• Teamwork: Together, everyone achieves more.
• Trust: Starts with honesty.
• Success: Results through people.
Once you have designed these statements, you should have a much better understanding of who you are, and where you are going as a business.
Exceeding expectations, communicate at the highest level, and provide a never-ending stream of surprises that leaves everyone saying “WOW” while operating a fun, people growing, top producing Real Estate company.
To be a company that everyone wants to be a part of and if not, feels like they are missing out.
