You will fail on a call 97% of the time, just be okay with it.
If you want expired leads to be easier, come in with the right approach and a value add.
Transparency In Lead Generation
At the start of the show, we talked about how a personal connection can help you get listings, and how to monitor the quality of what you’re putting in your funnel. We also discussed how Bryan Casella grew his YouTube channel by sharing other aspects of his life. We also spoke about the importance of transparency, why relationships are important, and putting the work into figuring out what’s valuable.
We also shared insights on;
- Why pop-bys and door knocks are better than calls
- Monetizing the no’s and hanging onto them
- Learning to ask for what you want
- The right approach for expired leads
Turning the “Hard” Into “Easy”
When it comes to lead generation, what’s easy and what’s hard is all relative according to your comfort zones, database and expertise. It’s also possible to turn whatever you consider hard into something easy by just hanging in there, and not taking the negative as it is. What makes people fail with lead gen is looking at an immediate no as failure. If you monetize the no’s – you set yourself up for a relationship that will become fruitful in future.
