A REALTORS® most valuable business asset is their real estate CRM database. In fact, it’s the only tangible asset an agent has. Things like experience and track record are intangible assets.
The more quality contacts in your real estate CRM database, the more repeat client transactions and referrals will likely come your way. Of course, you need to keep in touch with these contacts over time and do so in the right ways.
Here’s a great article by vice president of marketing for NewPoint Media Group, Rebecca Chandler, on ways you, as a real estate sales professional, can provide amazing customer service.
As you’ll read, Rebecca discusses the importance of following up with every lead and proactively calling your real estate leads and clients versus hoping they’ll call you. A great tip is to use your CRM for Realtors to a) set-up automatic prompts and reminders so you never forget to make an important phone call and b) set-up every lead on an automated drip marketing campaign so while you’re busy on the road showing homes, you’re marketing to and keeping in touch with hot leads at the same time.
Remember to capture all of your new leads in your CRM for REALTORS® and assign them to the appropriate drip marketing campaign. Also be sure to use your CRM for Realtors to keep track of your communication history with each of your leads.
The Power of Success Stories in Real Estate
Stories are easier to remember, and often have much more impact, than facts and figures.
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’s blog post is a fantastic video by Chris Leader, President of Leader’s Edge Training and IXACT Contact affiliate. Chris discusses how you can prioritize the leads in your real estate contact management software by putting them into four separate groups: Group A, Group B, Group C, and Group D.
While you’re watching the video, keep in mind that IXACT Contact’s real estate contact management software makes it easy to categorize your leads into these four groups. In fact, Chris is a big supporter of IXACT Contact and recommends it to all of his coaching clients.
How did these agents get these “raving fans” saying such nice things about their services?
Many agents think that testimonials just happen. You do a good job for a client and – fingers crossed – they write you a nice “Thank You” letter.
Over time, this passive approach will generate a few testimonials. It’s not a great real estate marketing plan.
