Leads are coming in left and right - from both buyers AND sellers. Your drip e-mail campaign has been set up but you need to stay on top of the tasks that need to be implemented. You got a new listing yesterday afternoon but, as of 5 p.m. today, you STILL haven't gotten a virtual tour set up (not to mention the ads that needed to go into Sunday's newspapers.) You have 4 current listings that all need to have e-mail blasts sent to area agents as well as the Just Listed postcards that you haven't had time to put together, let alone send out, since you took two of the listings 2 weeks ago. You haven't blogged for 3 weeks and you've forgotten your password to Arch Telecom's website so you can't set up your new listings with 800#s.
What to do? What to do??
You have two choices. You can either keep muddling along as you've always done or you can make some radical changes. Yes, I'm talking about using a Virtual Assistant.
Most agents are going to choose what's behind Door #1 - Keep muddling along for $200, Alex. That means, the leads will be responded to when you can. The listing marketing will get done when you have time. Just Listed postcards - if you get to it. E-mail blasts? They don't necessarily have to be sent out. You'll eventually remember your Arch Telecom password. Hopefully.
The agents that will set themselves apart will choose what's behind Door #2 - Make a Change for $500 Alex! And guess what? It's the daily double!! You see, you are probably going to choose Door #2 because you really want someone to stay on top of your incoming leads. You want someone to respond appropriately and in a timely manner. You probably also want someone to implement your drip marketing campaigns. But the daily double occurs because you can contract with a Virtual Assistant who can not only handle your lead management but your listing coordination as well. That means, all those listing marketing tasks you need done - it's in there! All those listing marketing tasks you would like to do but just don't have the time for - it's in there too!
The good life! I received a comment today from someone who hasn't been on vacation in 4 years. That's a thing of the past with Virtual Assistants! That's the good life. Don't you want some?
