Hiring freelancers for daily operational works of a real estate agency is a good option. It can relieve you from non-income generating tasks and can save you money by not requiring hiring expensive employees. The regular accounting, reporting, marketing and support jobs of a real estate agency that freelancers mostly do can get boring at times. So, you need to keep your freelancers motivated all the time to work. Here are some tips:
Communicate and set goals
If you communicate with your freelancer on a regular basis, he or she will be accountable for getting your work done. You can talk to the freelancer once a week. You can discuss what the freelancers’ goals were in the past session and what the performance was like. You can talk about future goals and your expectations.
Structure the works
You can set up specific milestones during the day when you want your freelancer to complete the task. For example, you want your freelancer to answer all the email queries of your clients by 10 am in the morning. If the freelancer has a proper structure to work on, he or she will be motivated to complete the task on time.
You should provide incentives to freelancers if they can complete a certain task before the deadline. You can also give them a reward for their good performance.
In a real estate business, all tasks need to be timed. If you delay any work, the whole process of buying and selling will be affected. That’s why a real estate virtual assistant can be a great solution to help you grow.
