Live streaming video is taking over the social media conversation. The tactics will change constantly but there are 4 strategic uses for live streaming that will always apply.
Takeaways + Tactics
1. Live stream your Open Houses to demonstrate your value to current and potential clients
2. Use live streaming tools to build a Platform and reach a larger audience of your sphere and potential clients
3. Offer live streaming video as an alternative to your weekly update calls
First we answer a question from the Facebook Lead Gen Scripts & Objections Group on how to make prospecting calls on Sundays, and Greg rants about his exhausting Super Bowl experience.
We also teased our upcoming test with a live streaming video platform called Smiletime, which allows you to host a live interactive video show with live chat and video call-ins from guests. We’re excited to run our first event and hopefully it goes well enough that we can make it a recurring interactive podcast event.
Then we dive into live streaming video, and the 4 main strategic uses:
Better client interaction- Instead of a weekly phone call update to sellers, offer a Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangout update. I would much rather do a video call than an audio call.
Demonstrating Value to Existing Clients - Live streaming Open Houses, door-knocking sessions, phone call sessions, open house invites, etc.
Platform- Building trust by using regular scheduled live streaming. Trust is about promises made and promises fulfilled over time.
Attracting New Clients Through Shareable Content- Housewarming parties, neighborhood events, local business interviews and anything else that is ideal for sharing.
Live streaming is just picking up momentum and might be poised for mass adoption. This creates a great opportunity to leverage these tools to build deeper relationships with clients and sphere as well as reach a larger audience through a Platform.
