1.    Effective use of social media to generate leads

When you have an effective online presence, you attract more clients. Your social media content should focus on the following:

  • 60% of content should be educational, which helps your clients make better decisions. 
  •  40% sales-related content and messages to promote your business.

Make sure you are active on the platforms your target audience uses. Post interesting content and engage with people in the comment section. You can also use Facebook advertisements to reach even more people. Realtors can benefit from using social media:

  • You get better exposure.
  • You get a low-cost way to land clients 
  • You build stronger relationships with customers
  •  You get better data for finding clients
  • You get a better brand recognition

2. Converting cold calls to clients

According to Marketing Sherpa45% of realtors feared cold calling. To make cold calling effective, you need a stronger mindset and a proven process that works.

 Here are a few tips to help you get started:

  • Know your script inside and out: Follow the script like an actor, not a robot. You make a better impression on potential clients when you powerfully deliver your ideas.
  •  Be prepared for objections: Objections will happen—it's just part of the process. But if you are prepared for them, they won't be as challenging to overcome. Anticipate common objections such as "I'm not interested" or "I already have an agent" and have a response ready for each. This gives you command over your conversation and lands you clients. 
  • Focus on building relationships: Your goal with cold calling should be to start building a relationship with the person you're speaking with—not to close a deal immediately. Ask questions about their needs and interests and listen to them to build a good rapport.
  • Use Smart Technology: Latest technology allows you to be incredibly effective at cold calling. For instance, our team at No Limits Selling uses Agent CRM, a sales automation platform. It lets you upload a call list and the system automatically dials each person. This lets realtors increase their calls from 20 calls a day to 200 calls a day within the same call block.

4.   Face-to-face networking

Don't underestimate good old-fashioned face-to-face networking. Attend local events, meetups, and conferences. Get involved in your community and build relationships with potential clients.

Face-to-face networking is one of the most effective ways to generate leads for realtors. It allows you to build relationships with potential clients and get your name out there.

Remember that sometimes the best way to network is simply striking up conversations with people you meet. Whether at the grocery store or getting your haircut, take the time to chat with the people around you. The person you are talking with may not be a client, but they know someone who is.
