Build Your Business Plan & Make More Money
We’re still in the beginning of 2018 so if you haven’t started thinking about developing your business plan for this year, it’s time to get on it.
Business plans not only set up a solid foundation and goals for the year, but it is a plan that is proven to help you set yourself up for success. Just ask a broker like Matt Gallimore, who grew his business by double digits in 18 months just by developing a plan and sticking to it.
We’ve broken down some important steps to building a business plan that will deliver results.
- Build a plan. Note strengths and weaknesses. Once you know your advantages and where you can improve, you can set goals. From there, you build out your plans that will help you reach those goals.
- Talk to your Business Consultant. Your assigned BC, and other UCRE staff, is there to help you. The BC’s know the area, they know UCRE and they know real estate. Go over your plan and goals with them and take their advice into consideration.
- Stick with your plan. Once your plan is set and approved by your BC, it’s time to set a timeline or plan of action. Hold yourself and your team accountable to stay on track.
- Analyze and evaluate. Relook at your plan and results in 6 and 12 months. Are you still on track? What is working? What isn’t working? If something isn’t working, tweak your plan of action and push forward.
UCRE has a lot of tools available for you right now on the UC Intranet to help you build your business, including a 2018 Business Plan Template. If you have questions, contact your BC or any of the Home Office staff.
