Guest Post-Will Terry-Do you need an Agent or Rep?
So many people think that getting an agent/rep is the end all be all. “If I get a rep then I know I will have made it and so much work will be thrown my way that I’ll have to turn stuff away!!” Yeah I used to think that too. So let’s get rid of that myth from the jump.
1. Getting a rep DOES NOT guarantee that you will get work! It is not the promised land!
Norm and I both have reps and we still have to bust a lot of pavement to get work. We have to constantly promote and market ourselves. Having a rep is a great tool and asset. But it’s just one tool in your toolbox and should never be the ONLY tool in your toolbox.
There are multiple ways to get work within our market. So look into all your options. Get info from multiple sources before you make your decision. Use every possible resource you can to your benefit. Maximize your opportunities.
In the following video Will Terry gives his opinions on whether an agent/rep is necessary. The answer to the question is, “No.” And truthfully they never have been. But Will goes into more detail about the current market and what it takes to be successful whether you have an agent or not. Enjoy, learn and as always, take notes!
