If you've been in real estate for even just one day you've surely noticed that residential real estate has an agent problem:
There are way too many agents in real estate today!
I'd one day like to see just 300,000 agents in the US rather than the 1,000,000+ we currently have.
But more important to you than how many agents there are is how the transactions are divided.
Did you know?
In most markets that 50% of the licensed agents haven't closed a transaction in the past year?
And that it's very common to see 80% of all transactions being done by just 15% of the agents.
If you want to break through to that top tier doing all of the business or if you want to stay there here's what you need to do!
The 3 Big Problems Facing Agents Today
Both new and veterans agents are struggling to getting noticed and struggling to generate customers, because: 1) Too Many Agents 2) Too Much Noise 3) The Stream Economy
It’s no surprise when there’s $12,000,000,000 (billion!) being spent annually marketing real estate.
And you’re concerned with sending one mailer or a digital ad spend of $300 a month.
It’s easy to see why you feel like you’re not getting your share or you might be feeling irrelevant in the market.
To get your fair share of the attention, leads and closings it makes sense to think of your marketing activities in line with how consumers shop.
KNOW: You don’t work with people that you don’t know; get to know your client; they are never going to do business with you unless they know you; what is your story and what is your unique selling proposition LIKE: create trust between client and agent TRUST: They must trust you to try you or buy you and repeat business with you and then eventually refer you Use this 4 step framework for to increase the profitability of your marketing campaigns.
Would You Like to Generate and Convert More Leads in Less Time?
1. Over Index on Reviews: Agents today are now competing on how many reviews they have. And the ones with the most reviews are always in the top 15% of all agents. 2. Marketing Collateral Musts: Map out transactions to gain trust and tell your story about what makes you unique. 3. Become Fearless: Overcome over your fear of rejection and put your best foot forward with every lead you encounter. 4. Spend in the Stream: Spend $5-$10 a day on Facebook Seller Ads

Append The Data: For the people who fill out your forms but don’t give you all of the data use data appending services to get their complete contact info and follow up via phone and email.
The secret here is to get the 2/3 that don’t fill out your form because I am sure they are filling out forms with plenty of agents!

They got resourceful. They innovated. They adapted. And perhaps even […]

But it’s an occasional reality of today’s market. For whatever reason – location, price, quality – certain homes seem to be […]
