One of the questions I’m asked all the time by REALTORS is “what information about my clients should I add to my real estate software, beyond the obvious name, address, phone numbers, email address?” These realtors want to improve their real estate marketing efforts and have more meaningful and personalized interactions with their clients. It’s a good question, so I’m going to share you the IXACT Contact “Top Ten Things To Learn About Your Clients And Add To Your real estate CRM“:
1. When you last spoke with them and what you discussed
2. Their birthday, and that of their spouse
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post that outlined some of things you might want to learn about your contacts over time in order to build deeper and more meaningful relationships. This post generated a lot of questions about exactly HOW one goes about gathering this information.
The key is to view this as a process that you will work at over time. It may sound daunting, but you’ll be amazed at how easily and quickly you’ll start to gather this kind of information once you start to focus on it. Once you master this process, your real estate marketing will become easy and you’ll be a lot more effective.
In this post, I’m going to introduce you to a process that will make it easy for you to develop a loyal database which will lead to a continuous flow of referrals and repeat business.
The very first thing you need to do is to put in place an easy to use contact management system.
You’re probably wondering: what’s the difference between contact management, and a contact management system. Essentially, contact management is a process and an approach to doing business that develops stronger client relationships. A contact management system, on the other hand, is a software tool that enables and automates the process of contact management. You can do contact management without a contact management system, or piece of real estate software, but you’ll be FAR FAR less efficient or effective at it.
