You might wonder, "When is a lead no longer a lead?" A lead isalways a lead until the person tells you to stop calling. The key to success in sales is professional persistence. Take time to earn the loyalty of prospects by showing them that you add more value to the equation than anybody else in your field. One critical element to remember about a successful lead follow-up campaign is that it should be easy to implement.

Build a series of letters and load them onto your computer. With a few clicks of your mouse, you will generate an outbound correspondence that encompasses your prospective client list and helps them realize that you are sincerely interested in working with them. You must leave an indelible imprint in their mind, which will give you a competitive edge if they have not yet decided with whom they will work. You must rouse prospective clients to wonder:

"What will I miss out on if I don't work with this person?"

Once you motivate the prospect to ask that crucial question, your battle has been won. How can you prompt prospects to ponder this question? It's simple: Teach them! People instinctively want to learn, especially when it comes to "big ticket" transactions like purchasing real property and financing homes. The more you teach them, the more they will want to work with you, so it is important to establish yourself as a consultant.

Many subtle changes occur regularly during real estate transactions that can make buyers feel vulnerable and anxious. They're filled with all types of questions and they look to you as the expert. How do you read an appraisal? What are key components of a home inspection report? What are the various non-recurring fees associated with buying a home? What is tax deductible during the loan process? What are some characteristics to look for when selecting a skilled real estate agent? The list never ends. Draft documents that address consumers' concerns before they even ask.

By maintaining contact with your prospects on a weekly basis using a drip campaign that contains valuable educational material, you will have made yourself invaluable to them. You'll be amazed by how much your conversion ratio from prospect-to-client will skyrocket!

Hi Bill, I couldn't agree with you more, especially about having drip campaings.  It is a way of always being out front with your potential clients.  We all know how easy it is for them to forget us...its a way for them to always hear from us without bugging them too much!
