Hey, who’s going to Five Star? I responded to a post about a month ago that I thought I’d share with you if you’re going.
I will be attending the 5 Star conference this year in hopes to further the REO business for my company. Can anyone that has attended this in the past give me any pointers.
Just remember...when you go, you are there to get information - you are on a fact finding expedition. Collect more cards than you pass out; don't take brochures and the like. Remember, most of the AMs there are from out of the area. They are not going to pay extra to add your brochure to their luggage weight. Guess where your brochure is going? Correct! So you can see how important it is to collect their contact information instead, so that when you get back home, you can solicit them. Any thing you do hand out, be sure it has your phone number and email address on it. Additionally, once back home be on the look out for an excel spreadsheet that will come via email and include the contact information of each and every attendee of the conference.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!
