"That was fast!! I'm still on your website!!"

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Affiliates


This isn't the first occasion.  More than once, I've impressed potential clients with the speed of the lead generation technology we're presented with at RE/MAX.  When a consumer signs up on my website, a text message with the consumer info (name, phone #, email) is instantly generated and sent to my cell phone.  

I call every lead back right away.  And when I say right away, I mean within mere moments from receiving the lead.  This morning a lead came through and I called the number that was registered.  (Now, I've found, like I'm sure you have, that not all phone numbers are valid - but the vast majority are.)  The prospect was still on my website!!  Needless to say, she was impressed.  I was able to quickly pull up the MLS and answer a couple questions about a listing she was interested in.  After the usual qualification questions, we are meeting tomorrow afternoon to go look at the listing in question, plus a few others.

Online lead follow-up is critical.  Some agents rack up prospects, but have no idea how to turn them into closings.  I'm consistant with the follow-up process and take good notes within the lead generation system.  Evey task is assigned a date to get back in touch by phone - never outside of 2 weeks, even if they're months away from purchasing/listing - and they are registered for my monthly eNewsletter and either the buyer or seller drip email drip campaign.  

Even if they're months out, I want to maintain priority "MindShare" and make myself a resourse for  the process.

Nick, the rule of thumb is to call within 15 minutes.....sooner if you can.  We catch a lot of great buyers that way.
