When it comes to database, everyone is microwave mentality minded. How does this approach affect your ability to build a long-term pipeline of leads? How do you work through your database to determine the most important people? What do people get wrong with the ISA role? On this episode of Real Estate Uncensored we discuss this with Beverly Ruffner. Gene Volpe also joins us with his weekly tech tip.
It’s all about taking the masses and figuring out a way to water it down and rise the most important to the top. -Beverly Ruffner
Takeaways + Tactics
The purpose of an ISA is to keep the pipeline full so you start to see results 6-9 months from now.
Multiple forms of communication are key.
A NO usually means NOT YET.
Communication is KEY!
At the start of the show, we answered a question about how to get low ball buyers to step up, and Beverly said it’s important to tell buyers, “if you want to sleep on it, you won’t sleep in it.” Next, Gene gave us a tech tip, and reminded us of the importance of tech security and using Google Authenticator. Beverly then shared what people are getting wrong when it comes to lining up long-term business. Towards the end of the show, we talked about the importance of multiple forms of communication.
We also shared insights on;
- How to increase your chances in the follow up
- How to narrow down your database
- Why it’s wrong to approach real estate with an instant need
- How to improve the results of your ISAs
How to Know What You Are Looking For
The biggest problems with ISAs and databases is the leads suck or they cannot be converted. To get what you want out of your database, the first step is getting into communication with the database so you can start qualifying and categorizing people. Send out a mass email and see who you can grab, get in touch, follow up and maintain consistency. Remember, the only way you know what you’re looking for in a grocery store is how everything is categorized.
