Swarm Marketing & Building a Relationship Based Business with Buddy Blake

Swarm Marketing & Building a Relationship Based Business with Buddy Blake

Agents constantly want to buy more leads, even though they aren’t converting the ones they already have. What is the maximum number of leads an agent can handle and get the most out of? What is swarm marketing and how does it work? On this episode of Real Estate Uncensored, Buddy Blake joins us for a high-level conversation about relationships, succession plans, and getting the most out of leads.


Whichever door they came in, is the door you need to walk them through and walk them in and out. -Buddy Blake

Takeaways + Tactics

Real estate agents get their skill sets and paychecks confused.

Taking an ISA or assistant, the least paid person and putting them in the most important port of contact is a mistake.

When you leave a team, no matter who you are, you are going to go down before you come up.

Have A Plan

At the start of the show, Buddy shared how he got started, and the mistakes agents make. We also talked about the power of impression points and how to use swarm marketing to hit people from multiple angles. Buddy also talked about the succession plan when someone leaves a team, and why cutting down on leads can make people more productive.

We also shared insights on;

  • How many leads agents should really have
  • The power of scaling up relationships
  • How you learn more though relationships
  • Why you can’t be a good listing agent till you’re a good buyer’s agent

Relationships

Swarm marketing is all about creating multiple impression points and communicating with them the way they came in. If you’re looking at scaling, scale the relationship first, then look at scaling by adding leverage and automation. The role of first contact with the lead is a very important one, and it should be taken on by someone who brings the most value. The thing that will always be the most effective is the relationship.

Why People Aren’t Successful in Marketing

Why People Aren’t Successful in Marketing

It’s so easy to drown in the mental work and tactics of real estate marketing. How do you put your focus on the right things and overcome the difficulty of marketing execution? How can you refine your Facebook ads to your advantage? In this episode of Real Estate Uncensored, Gene Volpe joins us as we discuss Facebook marketing, geofencing, and knowing who to go after.


It’s not just fear that holds people back, it’s also the hard, mental thought and the dread of having to sit down and figure something out that you don’t already know what to do. -Matt Johnson

Takeaways + Tactics

People make the mistake of obsessing with the tools to get a message out, without knowing what to say or who to say it to.

Your best lead source is people who already like you, know you, and trust you.

Online buyer leads: if you don’t respond in minutes, the leads exponentially decrease in value.

Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better.

What Is Marketing Costing You?

At the start of the show, Gene talked about creating multiple streams of content, and how you can use Facebook to see how much ads are costing you. We also shared on how people get the market, medium and message triangle wrong. Next, we talked about the importance of coming from a place of ascension and not aversion. Towards the end, we talked about future marketing trends and geofencing, Pinterest, as well as the four agreements of following up on a home value lead.

We also shared insights on;

  • How Facebook cares about relevant ads
  • How people stay in their comfort zones
  • If you should get pre-qualification or pre-approval
  • Who the best lead source is

Know Who You Are Talking To

It’s so easy to get distracted by the medium, but the bottom line is human nature, and truly knowing who your person is. Who are you talking about and what message do you have to put in front of them that’s going to be compelling? It’s critically important to know who you’re going after and how they will use the technology, so you overcome the hard mental thought of the marketing tactic. Remember, it’s not where the leads are from, it’s who they are. For success, take inventory of yourself and ask if you’re averting or ascending. If you ascend, you gain your freedom!

How to Use Social Media to Build Your Brand with Ronny Philip

Are you getting the most out of your social media? Chances are, probably not. Which platform is now considered dead, and which platform should you take advantage of? In this episode Ronny Philip will show you how to use Snapchat, Facebook Live and Instagram to help you reach and approach new clients in a different way. Ronny will show you the best ways to build real relationships with people that will lead to more clients for business in the future.

Snapchat is a daily thing, use it every day. That is the best platform to interact with millennials because it is so informal. -Ronny Philip

Takeaways + Tactics

Twitter is dead. You are not going to get much interaction on there anymore.

There should be a difference between what you post on Instagram and what you post on Snapchat. Snapchat is more informal and Instagram is the polished, cool stuff.

Snapchat isn’t interruptive. People can decide whether they want to hear from you.

Connecting With Millennials

In this episode Ronny began by discussing the best ways to connect with millennials and how to piggyback off that relationship to connect with people they may know who are older and need a real estate agent. We then went on to discuss the new features that Facebook has recently brought in such as Facebook Messenger Day and the ways you can use these. Later in the episode Ronny discussed how best to organize your Facebook feed using the ‘See First’ feature and then went on to discuss the best ways to use Snapchat.

Ronny also shared insights on;

  • Facebook Business pages and the algorithms Facebook uses to rank posts.
  • The best ways to comment on Facebook
  • Why thoughts come from programming
  • Wearable technology from Snapchat
  • The death of Twitter

Authenticity and Social Media

The ways in which you use social media are extremely important in creating a brand and helping you find new clients. It is important to be authentic on social media, that is your marketing. If you can create genuine connections with people through shared commonalities, then you will have stronger, more valuable clients. The stronger the bonds you share with your clients, the more likely they are to refer their friends and families to you, and the more clients you will get.

How to Get More Commissions from Your Database with Frank Klesitz

When it comes to your real estate database, interpersonal relationships beat prospecting with little personalization. How do you reconnect with your sphere of influence? How do you construct effective emails? In this episode of Real Estate Uncensored, Frank Klesitz shares the best ways to get more out of your database and he gives specific guidelines and scripts to help you achieve this.

The one thing that will give you a competitive advantage is the relationship you have with homeowners in the local community. -Frank Klesitz

Takeaways + Tactics

Internet lead generation is getting more competitive and more expensive. You can choose to play that game at a high level, or focus on niche local communities.

A cleaner database that will respond to you is more valuable than ten thousand leads that don’t care about you or what you have to say.

The home owners in your city do not want to hear from you that much. Twice a month is good with a monthly mailer, anything over that is overkill.

Key Quotes

When you have this list of people, we let them know that they can opt out and we let them know what our intent is. It should look like a personal email that you wrote in Gmail. -Frank Klesitz

Focus on listings, that is the name of the game. The buyer leads you get from signs are the highest quality. –Frank Klesitz

Clean Up Your Real Estate Database

The ways in which people got leads in the past with online resources are becoming less successful due to oversaturation and over-pricing. Now it is about creating a clean database, filled with people who actually want to hear from you, rather than tens of thousands of people who don’t care about what you are sending out. This is how you can radically transform your prospects and become more successful today.

Local Marketing Tactics: Part Deaux! with Gene Volpe

Local Marketing Tactics: Part Deaux! with Gene Volpe

There’s virtue in putting out a lot of content, but how do you make sure you’re putting out something that will stick? What kind of content should you be aiming to create? How do you go about hiring the right people to help with social media strategy and execution? On this episode of Real Estate Uncensored, Gene Volpe is back to share more valuable insights and tactics that will make a huge impact to your local real estate marketing.

At the end of the day you still have to go prospect, that’s your highest value work. -Matt Johnson

Takeaways + Tactics

The busier you are in the business, the more that comes across to your clients and the less likely they are to jerk you around.

Successfully scaling up and hiring people to help you comes down to knowing what you’re going to do with the time you’ll save.

The Facebook algorithm rewards consistency, creativity and dynamic content that people want to see.

At the start of the show we answered a question about a buyer wanting to view a home that’s out of their price range. We also talked about the importance of having a pre-approval process in your business. We shared on how you can set yourself up in a way that stops clients from jerking you around. We went on to share how Facebook decides how many people will organically see what you put out, and what the algorithm rewards.

Gene also gave insight on;

    • How he helps clients value their time more
    • How to hire someone to help you with social media
    • The problem agents have with scaling up and hiring people
    • The benefits of carpet bombing your content

Key Quotes

The best way to gauge if it’s working is that the number of conversations and activity you have with human beings will increase. -Gene Volpe

If you keep moving into higher value work you can keep hiring and afford to pay for a social media service. -Matt Johnson

The best metric for the effectiveness and success of your marketing is the increase in human interaction. When it comes to reaching this metric, video content is king right now. Facebook decides how many people will organically see what you put out, and if you’re consistent, creative and dynamic, your content will perform a lot better. A lot of people won’t know what they want to hear until you tell them, and that’s where carpet bombing comes into play. Put out so much content that you can hit many people at different times and needs.
