realtor: Do not visualize achieving a goal - 01/25/16 12:30 AM

Real Estate Agents, chances are you have come across dozens of books, seminars, and training programs on how to set and achieve goals. So you have probably heard something like this:
You must visualize the experience of having achieved your goal. Imagine the good feelings associated with that achievement. Get excited. The more clearly you can “see” yourself crossing the finish line, the more likely you are to do so.
This is, perhaps, the most common advice given in the field of goal setting.
But is this true?
The answer might surprise you. It’s not.

Are you familiar with this chain of events? A real estate prospect shows interest in listing his or her home. You diligently pursue the lead with phone calls, a home evaluation and coffee meetings.

realtor: How real estate agents can become successful - 01/18/16 03:44 AM

They do not keep tabs on their numbers. They do not stick close to their highest priority (and revenue generating) activities. So how can real estate agents become successful?
Agents, make this the year you far surpass your goals and expectations by identifying them and consistently tracking and analysing your numbers.  It’s a little like working a mathematical equation backwards.

realtor: How to get Client Testimonials - 12/15/15 02:07 AM
Active Rainers, testimonials accomplish two important things in Referral & Repeat Marketing.
First, testimonials tell prospects and colleagues that you have a reputation for building long lasting, solid relationships with clients.
Second, testimonials make all your marketing communications and presentations more believable.
Lets face it. Clients expect you to be at least a little bit biased when talking about yourself. But they will trust their fellow home buyers and sellers to tell it like it is.
However, many agents find it difficult to ask for a testimonial. “I do not want to make my clients feel uncomfortable,“ many say.
So how do you ask for a testimonial without putting … (14 comments)

realtor: How to qualify past clients for Referral Marketing - 12/07/15 10:51 PM
It is natural to want to include every client you have ever worked with in your Referral Marketing database, but this is not a good idea.
Why?
There are some clients who – for whatever reason – will never use your services again nor refer business to you. So why waste time and money marketing to them? Instead, the only names that should be in your database are those who are, or could potentially become, loyal to you.
 
 
How do you qualify past clients for Referral Marketing? Its easy, just ask yourself a few simple questions:

Real estate agents, you have a website, which hopefully generates potential leads for you. However, not all these leads are of high quality.

You do not want to waste time following up on poor quality leads.
So what is the solution? 
Add qualifying questions to your website response form. This form is the online information that website visitors provide when they sign up for your free report.
