As you start out in the world of real estate sales, a lot of information is coming at you. There are so many things you’ve been told you need to do, and you are still just trying to get your business going. It can all be a bit overwhelming. The good news is that while a real estate CRM is definitely one of those things you need, it can make the rest of the start-up process a lot less overwhelming. Here’s why:
1. You need to organize your contacts
You are starting off with a clean slate, so don’t let your business slip into organizational chaos by having your contacts and their information scattered all over the place. Instead, use a real estate CRM such as IXACT Contact to house ALL your contacts. IXACT Contact makes this easy with a Concierge Setup service, the ability to sync your smartphone with your CRM, and automated lead capture from sources such as Zillow, Trulia, FiveStreet, your website, and more.
2. You need to nurture your leads
As a rookie, you likely won’t be generating a lot of repeat or referral business to begin with. This means that nurturing every prospect you have is even more important. Thankfully, a real estate CRM such as IXACT Contact is perfectly equipped to help you out with this task. IXACT Contact has 9 pre-written email drip campaigns that you can easily assign to the contacts in your database. Once you assign the campaign, relevant emails go out at regular intervals, ensuring you are staying top of mind with your prospects and converting more of them to clients. An excellent boost to a fledgling business!
3. You need an online presence
As you are new to the game, potential clients might be doing more research on you – and that means going online. You need to be present on both social media and with a website. This can add a lot of extra time and money that your new business can’t afford, but not with IXACT Contact. With IXACT Contact you get a free agent website included in your monthly fee that comes with 16 pages already written and designed for you. You can customize them as much as you want, but you don’t have to start from scratch. You can also add IDX to pull listings into your website to drive even more traffic! We also offer Social Stream – a system that allows you to choose what publications you would like to post from (such as Home & Garden, Martha Stewart, etc.) and when. Get set up in 10 minutes and have social media content posting regularly!
As a new real estate agent, your focus needs to be on building relationships. A real estate CRM such as IXACT Contact helps you to do that better and in less time.
