  2. 2. Overview An experienced agent recruiting process can take YEARS. If it doesn’t last for a minimum of 4 years you are going to miss some serious retained company dollar Frequency: DMA (Direct Marketing Institute) stats say the optimum length between contacts is 21 days. The internet has drastically changed that interval. It is too easy to hit the “delete” button… The interval now has to be a maximum of 14 days, 7 days is optimal. Messaging: Message must show your knowledge - Agents are looking for a coach and a mentor with knowledge and skills. Message must offer the agent something of value - Content and value rich. Each message in the drip campaign should contain information that an agent can actually use to build their business. (i.e. Lead Generation, For Sale by Owner Marketing, Business Planning, Building a Team, Sourcing their Business and more) Message must offer just enough information to leave them wanting more - You are not going to take them step by step through every system and Script process. Every message must have a call to action - To get someone to do something or take action what do you have to do? ASK THEM TO DO IT!

  4. 4. Week 1: Designed to Get Them Thinking! The Greatest Question You Could Ask An Experienced Agent Recruit So, how do you get a happy real estate agent that you want to recruit, to even start thinking about leaving their current real estate company? They are happy. They have a good commission split. What more could they want? Right? They aren’t going any where. Are they? Ask them this one question to get the wheels spinning: Is Your Firm Investing In Your Success? Don’t try to answer it for the recruit. Don’t start telling and selling the recruit on how much, how or what you would do to invest in them. Just ask the question. This will be tough, because they won’t have an answer. At least not a good one. The reason why this is the greatest single question you could ask an experienced real estate agent recruit is that it will get them thinking. The recruit will start asking themselves a bunch of questions and start to think. You want the recruit to start thinking. To start questioning. When that happens, you have a happy agent, with a good split that is open to idea’s and opportunity. If you ask a question that they have an easy answer to, you didn’t ask a good Script recruiting question. Diane Turton, Realtors Agent Recruiting Drip Campaign

  6. 6. Week 2: Leveraging Your Best Talents! Script Diane Turton, Realtors Agent Recruiting Drip Campaign
  7. 7. Week 2: Designed to Differentiate! The reason why most real estate brokerages and real estate recruiters fail is that they are only talking about features of the company. Recruiters only talking about their own business, their own company, what they offer. How does that benefit a real estate agent? How is that going to help with a real estate recruits fear of change when all a real estate recruiter talks about is features?

Have you ever worked for an organization whose mission did not match up with the things you feel strongly about? Describe situation and how you handled it. Committed people follow through on the promises they make and take responsibility for the achievement of plans, sticking with work until it is completed. Committed people take responsibility for the consequences of their actions and do not blame others for their own mistakes or failures. To assess this competency, ask: What plans were set for you in that job? What plans did you set for yourself? Please describe a situation where the plan was set by your manager and you Script were accountable for completing it. What happened? How did it work out? Describe a situation where your role was to set the direction for the work and things didn’t go as you’d expected. What setbacks did you experience in that assignment? How did you respond?
