Here is what the TOP agents do to get the results that you want! It’s only a few simple steps:
First rule of marketing. However, it’s often ignored. You will find much more success targeting a niche. In other words, a large piece of a small pie is better than a small piece of a large pie.

This is where you can get creative. This step separates the successful agents from the unsuccessful agents. The reason why? Unsuccessful agents underestimate the importance of providing value.
Let’s face it, there are hundreds of agents all trying to get the same clients. Why would anyone pick you? YOU NEED to provide value that others can’t. Unsuccessful agents will give a FREE consultation and call it a day. This is your opportunity to take advantage where unsuccessful agents take the easy path.

MAKE IT EASY. Think about the POV of the client. If they are trying to get in touch with you and there are hang-ups/bottlenecks they will stop pursuing. There are hundreds of other agents offering the same service without extra work.
Successful agents implement a friction free process that allows customers to easily give their info and get in contact with you. There are many avenues you can use to provide this. Facebook Forms, Calendly links. Whatever it is, make sure your process is smooth.
You’re getting leads but now you have to organize all your messy information and determine who you need to prioritize/call first. Sure this will work when you don’t have many leads but aren’t you looking to scale.
The most successful agents have this whole process automated. Once a lead comes in, their information is sent straight to the agents phone and the agent gives them a call within 15 minutes. You can’t let the client wait. The quicker you get back to them the more likely they are to continue with your services.
