When you see a Doctor or Lawyer who has “By Referral Only” on the office door, what is your impression?
Probably that he or she is exclusive, an expert, in demand, and respected by clients and colleagues alike – a highly successful professional.
The psychology is simple.
People believe – for good reason – that if you get referrals, then not only must you be good at what you do, you also must work hard and make the extra effort required to fully satisfy your clients.
There is a mystique that surrounds professionals who build their businesses on referrals.
We highly recommend that you personally visit your best clients once a year as a way to keep in touch with everyone in your real estate contact management database.
And you should know that keeping in touch with your sphere of influence (SOI) will help you build your referral and repeat business.
One way to arrange a visit with a past client is by conducting an annual Homeowner’s Check-Up. Conducting an annual Homeowner’s Check-Up is a great real estate marketing idea.
However, it’s not always easy to get a client to agree to one.
A/B testing should be an important part of any agent’s real estate marketing arsenal.
In this article, we’ll discuss A/B testing as it relates to email marketing campaigns.
Take Your Real Estate Marketing to the Next Level
If you’re serious about taking your real estate marketing to the next level, you’ll want to A/B split test your emails.
The process of continually testing, tweaking, and modifying your emails is what will lead to tremendously positive success with your email marketing campaigns.
You need to pinpoint the right message that resonates with your real estate leads, clients, or whoever your sending your email to.
Real estate mogul Donald Trump has a lot of opinions on what it takes to be successful in business.
But, when it comes to real estate marketing, what would Trump say about email marketing in particular? Should REALTORS® be doing it more or doing it less? Is email “dead” like so many experts have claimed?
Recent survey: real estate marketing and email marketing
Based on recent findings from ExactTarget’s 2012 Channel Preference Survey, we’re going to share with you why we think Trump would agree that Realtors should jump all over email marketing.
You show up for an open house and discover that your client is late getting the property in “show condition.” During a listing presentation, you realize you’ve forgotten your presentation materials. A fellow REALTOR® calls to inform you that a deal you thought was done has unexpectedly fallen through.
As a real estate sales professional, you’re bound to face challenges like these from time-to-time. They come with the territory.
But many people in these situations make the big mistake of focusing on the problem rather than on the solution.
As a real estate sales person who excels in generating clients through referrals and repeat business, you know that your real estate CRM database of past clients is a vital source of new business. However, another great source of leads is your list of fellow professionals in the “home industry” — plumbers, florists, tutoring services, personal trainers, landscapers, and deck builders to name a few.
You want to cultivate a positive relationship with these professionals so that they’ll recommend you when any of their clients need real estate help.
Sounds great. But how do you make these relationships happen?
