The Power of Success Stories in Real Estate
Stories are easier to remember, and often have much more impact, than facts and figures.
Today we’re re-blogging a great article by Katie Lance, chief strategist for Inman News and CEO/Owner of Katie Lance Consulting. Katie discusses how REALTORS® can make the most of the relationships they form at the various events, conferences, and parties they attend.
I have the good fortune of attending dozens of real estate events and conferences throughout the year – usually two or more per month. After I leave each event, I always have a stash of business cards, receipts, photos on my iPhone and more “stuff” to go through. I am a firm believer that there is a small window of opportunity after an event to follow up, cement new business relationships and new friendships.
I always return my phone calls,” a real estate sales professional insists. “I get back to my clients and real estate leads as soon as I can — usually the same day.”
Does that sound like great service to you? Most REALTORS® would think so.
Surprisingly, however, leads and clients waiting for a call-back don’t always see it the same way.
That’s why, when you return a call — even promptly — the person can sometimes sound frustrated or even irritated with you.
You may already be aware that email marketing is an important element to keeping in touch, building trust, and developing rapport with clients and prospects. But you may be thinking “What kinds of emails should I send to my clients? What should I include in the emails?”
Now, many real estate CRM systems, including IXACT Contact, have emails already created for you (in addition to drip marketing campaigns for different types of leads). However, we realize that many REALTORS® like to customize these emails or create their own new emails in their own voice. In this blog post we outline five ideas for compelling marketing emails.
Today we’d like to share a great blog post with you by Austin Sams from Agent Inner Circle. It’s a great reminder of one truly effective technique for securing those coveted referrals! And it’s so easy! Read the article below and leave a comment at the end letting us know what you thought.
While you’re reading the article, keep in mind that in order to get satisfied clients talking about you over time and continuing to create buzz and spread positive word of mouth, you need to practice effective contact management. The bottom line is that a good real estate contact management software is essential to keeping in touch with people easily and effectively.
We’ve compiled a fantastic list of resources, below, that’ll give you a ton of ideas on creative and effective ways to keep in touch with past clients, so you can stay memorable and “top of mind.” Remember, this is a key element to achieving a referrals-based business.
