The Difference of Hard vs. Easy in Lead Generation

The Difference of Hard vs. Easy in Lead Generation

People expect immediate wins when it comes lead generation. Why is this the wrong approach? What is the right method of lead generation for you? Why is it so important to monetize the no’s? What’s hard and what’s easy when it comes to generating leads? On this episode, we talk about this in detail.


If you have a genuine reason to reach out that genuinely adds value, you wouldn’t hesitate to reach out -Matt Johnson

Takeaways + Tactics

If you want to get to know the neighborhoods, do some door-knocking because people will get to know you, and you’ll know the neighborhood intimately.

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.

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.

Utilize Personal Relationships

At the start of the show, Michael gave tips on how to write a strong offer and the best ways to get an offer accepted through the power of personal relationships. He went on to discuss the best marketing strategies for new agents or agents who are starting up again after being out of the game for a while. Michael went on to discuss one of his most successful tools for marketing; social farming. He spoke about the successes he had going on ski trips with 50 people he didn’t know and how much easier it is to make connections with people when you have that shared common interest. Later in the episode we discussed other important people to make solid relationships with who may be able to give you leads or referrals. We finished up by talking about the importance of speaking to top producers in other areas and the mistakes people make in their marketing.

We also shared insights on;

  • Techniques to get contact information
  • The importance of always carrying a business card
  • The use of coupons
  • The pros and cons of door knocking

Social Farming!

Social farming is the superpower you aren’t using enough. If you have a hobby or interest, whether it be golf, swimming, cycling, hiking, skiing, whatever, join a club and get out there and meet new people.

The best way to build strong relationships with people is when you have a common interest and once you build that relationship, you will build that trust. That is the best way to get new clients and referrals. Gardeners, building contractors and mailmen are other people you may not have considered as being important in terms of getting leads, but they all know exactly what is going on in the neighborhood and who is likely to move. Get out there today and start meeting new people and you will see your business thrive.

Clarity is KEY

At the start of the show, Kathleen shared on the work she does, and we answered a question on one system we would implement in our businesses if money wasn’t an object. Next, we talked about why clarity of thinking is so important in scaling up, and how that can be a difficult thing for top producing rainmakers to do. We also talked about how successful people are incredibly cautious and why that is such a good thing. Towards the end of the show, we talked about what people get wrong with compensation structure, and why teams are more prepared for market corrections.

We also shared insights on;

  • Building your database with the future in mind
  • How she gets her clients to narrow down their focus
  • The importance of humility
  • Why a team leader needs people who can protect them from themselves

Find the Already Proven Method

The biggest problem people have when trying to start a team is the lack of structure and vision. Success comes down to clarity of thinking, and wanting to grow without avoidable mistakes and unnecessary risk. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel, there’s already a proven method, so just go with it. Don’t try to create a car to drive to the top of the mountain one when one is already available. All you need to do is invest in it, commit to it, then you can get to be a visionary.
