  • 10. Determine the Value
    Use the internet to learn more about leads before you make contact
    Always, Always make a minimum of 2 contacts before you disqualify a lead!
    Don’t give up just because you feel it would involve too much effort!
    NAR 2009 study on home buyers:
    Nearly 70% of all buyers only interviewed with one person prior to determining who to work with. By making a phone call, you have a 70% chance of getting a new client!
  • 11. Categorize the Lead
    The Friendship Trigger - Activates both trust and agreement through bonding on a social level
    The Authority Trigger - Activates acceptance through expertise
    The Consistency Trigger - Motivates consistency with past actions and repeat contacts.
    Follow up!  Follow up!  Follow up!
    The Reciprocity Trigger - You give, you receive.
    Use the services and businesses that your clients own or work at...and they will do the same for you.
    The Contrast Trigger - Side by side comparisons of options to make one more attractive than the other.
    Listing presentations, Financing options, CMA, etc
    The Reason Why Trigger - Emotional reasons to make decisions and actions.
    The Hope Trigger - Instills positive expectations to help persuade one side of an argument.
  • 12. Follow Up
    Goal: Book an appointment
    Always ask for the appointment! The worst they can say is no.
    Before calling back, consult a script that will help you identify their needs and motivation, and set up a face-to-face appointment.
    Be helpful and nonthreatening!
    Make a targeted offer that provides a benefit to them for very little work
    "Would you like to receive a daily list of homes that match your criteria?"
    "Great, if we can get together for about 15 minutes, I can listen to exactly what you're looking for so that we don't miss out on the perfect home. When is a good time to get together, days or evenings?"
  • 13. 6 Qualities Every Follow-Up System Needs
    Send a yearly card reminding:
    The golfer about the day he shot a hole in one
    The day the client’s daughter won at the school track meet
    The date of the Kentucky Derby for a horse racing fan
    • Surveys show that the most common reason people don’t stay loyal to agents is that they can’t remember their name.
    • Take a long-range view of building referral business. Continue to send contacts information as long as their addresses remain valid.
  • Bright Ideas:Keeping Customers for Life
    1. Give a battery-operated smoke detector as a gift, then supply a new battery once a year as reason to follow up.
    2. Build a special referral database of your area’s top 50 salespeople and develop a regular contact program with them. Once they know you, you can market your listings directly to them.
    3. Print “Just Moved” postcards that have clients’ and customers’ old and new addresses, as well as your logo and contact information, as a closing gift.
    4. If you see a local business for sale, follow up to see if the owner is also thinking of relocating and selling a home.
