Every single member can benefit by reviewing this orientation. It is designed to ensure you are doing a deal every 90 days or at the very least developing good business relationships you feel will lead to doing deals otherwise Make An Appointment.

See the transactions going on and connections made daily proving everyone can and should be doing deals. There are $50M deals being done here by members with one property having 12 offers but it was two members of ICIWorld that did it! The minimum requirements to make this happen and how to measure whether you are doing things right all contained in the following orientation.

 

However, all Executive Members should get through this orientation at some time, otherwise, you can be missing making money and not realize it. In fact, anyone not making money or generating leads every 90 days should take this orientation all over again. Even though you may know most of it, there are some fine points that can make the difference between making money or making zero.

ICIWorld is not a real estate board listing service but rather a networking real estate information service. You can not write offers from the listings on ICIWorld. It is designed as a service to trigger leads, new business, networking opportunities, and more. It provides more choices for the public because of the ability to work exclusive real estate opportunities as well as advertising regular real estate board listings.

There is a responsibility on your part, however, to keep your information working up to date 24/7 and less than 90 days old for the maximum in worldwide marketing exposure.

New members, pay particular attention to How To Add Listings and the four ingredients in the subject line.

This orientation contains some of the items we go over with you in a Webinar Workshop conducted over the Internet in your home or business office while talking with you on the phone.  It is by appointment. Ten minutes before your time, go to www.iciworld.com and the second line from the top underneath Make An Appointment, Click on Webinars Workshop. You will see our computer and vice versa. Have a pad of paper and pen handy to take notes.

We allow that for three reasons.  If you are able to do a deal and make $30,000 with one of these brokers and who has an exclusive listing, then that is a benefit for you.  Secondly, we are not giving anything away because no one can click on these numbers and get the contact information. The reason you can is that you are logged in as a member. And thirdly these listings can also be on YOUR website in a way that YOU get the calls. You should also receive these listings by EMail from time to time. There is good business being conducted with these people. You should not call them unless you have something for them, either a buyer for their property or a property for the buyer. You can also ask them the three questions that every member must know.

ICIWorld is a national database and one of the largest exclusive real estate information databases in the world. 75% of the information is of an exclusive nature for commercial.  About 50% is exclusive for residential. You are no longer restricted to making money with just a real estate board service.  Now you can do both.
  1. Every member should have a minimum of fifteen listings, Haves and Wants. This is because you are not restricted to making money with just an MLS listing.  You can work exclusive type real estate information as long as you do not place an address.  According to RECO, you must have the consent of an owner in writing if you are going to give an address to someone of a property for sale.  But if you do not place an address or identify a property, you can network that kind of information on ICIWorld as an information listing service.
  2. Learn the Three Special Questions that can help you work exclusive real estate information.  Halfway down on the Login Member Management Page you will see number 3 Learn How To Work Exclusive Information and all of the ICIWorld Educational YouTube Videos that say Mastering the Powers of the Internet and Learn How To Work Exclusive Information.

Receive Listings, Haves and Wants By EMail Daily
Click on Get Haves/Wants by EMail (top left), Choices are on the left.
We recommend the Digest Method.  That way you get only one EMail with the new listings in it daily whether there are 2 or 10 new listings. Recommended lists are:
  1. commercial for your area
  2. residential for your area
  3. FSBO’s
  4. My Listings

Other Things To Note
  1. Sponsorship Program Sponsor another Realtor and your renewal is reduced to $240 from $319. Make sure they mention your name and they too can join for $240 for one year, only if they mention your name. More.
  2. Seminars  All designed specifically for real estate brokers and salespeople worldwide. See comments.
  3. Retired Brokers Would you mind doing the odd five-minute referral that makes you $3,000 to $10,000 and more? The only program of its kind for retired brokers that I know of.
  4. Referral Brokers Program Would you mind doing the odd five-minute referral that makes you $3,000 to $10,000 and more? Full-time salespeople can do this.  Part-Time Salespeople can do this. If you have a license to trade in real estate you can do referrals.
  5. Time Required. Once you know things only two things you will be doing. Searching from time to time. Add/modifying, deleting listings and marking them sold from time to time.
  6. Testimonials Proof positive that every single member can make money.
  7. Circulation, Distribution, Readership
  8. Statistics – Pretty steady through 2017 with about 1.5 Million hits per month
  9. Social Media Connect with us on all social media platforms. The ICIWorld International Newspaper, for instance, comes out every Saturday morning by EMail. Click on Business and at the minimum, there should always be an article or more of very good interest for you in real estate.
  10. Security
  11. SSL Certificates.  Now with everyone on the Internet starting to clamp down on fraud, more sites are using a Secure Sockets Layer Certificate.  For instance, http://www.iciworld.com versus https://www.iciworld.com We are a secure site. But many of our former links and pages have not been changed because we have thousands of them still working triggering leads and always will for members.
    The problem is that sometimes you click a link and it will not open.  Yet if you choose to open the link in a new page, it will open. When adding a listing to ICIWorld and then checking your listing and the Internet links in your listings, you may have to open the link in a new window to check it.
  12. ICIWorld EMail Going into Spam Note for All Members: To receive EMail from ICIWorld please follow these instructions from Google. Legitimate mail from many sources can get trapped in spam blockers of your email program. Check your spam folder, mark it not spam. Add the email address to your contacts.
