What tactics, skills and practices helped Brandon Fink and Jonathan Tager make 91k in 90 days? How did marketing play into this success, and how do they go about creating, testing and running Facebook ads? On this episode, we go into detail about marketing best practices, tonality and the skills required to attract clients.

People forget that the ability to generate a new client is a skill. -Matt Johnson

Takeaways + Tactics

  1. People often miss the importance of putting “click here” and “learn more” on their ads.
  2. A lot of people get into real estate without thinking about the skills they need to attract clients.
  3. Brandon and Jonathan found a great opportunity by getting people under contract, and referring them to a builder - without having to meet with them.

On this episode we discussed:

  • Sprucing up a marketing plan for sellers
  • The average day for Brandon and Jonathan
  • The importance of being clear and concise in your ads
  • Cutting your pay-per-click cost with exclusion
  • The opportunity Brandon and Jonathan found with new home builders
  • The importance of tonality

Some of the biggest opportunities come our way through identifying annoyances or inconveniences. By acquiring and nurturing the skills you need to attract clients, you can start seeing solutions in everyday problems. These skills will filter through to you how you write for ads. If you’re really good with your words, people can hear your tonality in what you write, and that makes your communication more impactful.

What is numerical visualization? How can agents get over the pain of prospecting and focus on the rewards? On this episode of Real Estate Uncensored, we talk accountability and it, not numbers, to stay focused and motivated. Our guests Aaron Wittenstein and Pasquale Scopelliti provide insights.

It is painful to invest and make effort. There is a painful discipline you have to make yourself go through before you get addicted to the reward. -Pasquale Scopelliti

Takeaways + Tactics

  1. We don’t equate learning with the necessary failing and we don’t bridge it to figure out the lesson.  
  2. A new person has to go through the learning curve of overcoming the pain of activity, because they start with a greater measure of pain than joy.
  3. There is no need to modify a script for the holidays, why modify something that works?

On this episode we discussed:

  • The consistency and activity necessary to succeed in prospecting
  • Holding yourself accountable without focusing on the numbers
  • Our emotional connection to numbers
  • Analyzing failure and numerical visualization

Some people don’t need numbers to smack them on the head because they can keep themselves accountable. Having extraordinary, focused, disciplined accountability comes down to understanding that the activity might be painful, but the joy of the end result is far more attractive. It’s important to analyze everything you do, including your failures.

Content is key in building a dominant brand, but why does it give agents a pause? Why do agents need the servant mentality and good personal brands to overcome this reluctance? On this episode, Chris Craft shares his expertise on brand building, and the intersection of front loading content and being transparent.

Show boundless experience and knowledge by front-loading your brand with online content, and letting that be your face. -Chris Craft

Takeaways + Tactics

  1. Your personal brand is your God given identity put on display.
  2. Good content doesn’t only come in written form, it can also be video and audio.
  3. The audience you attract becomes a huge part of how you communicate going forward.

On this episode we discussed:

  • How to be more persuasive when you’re young and new to the industry  
  • How to show your knowledge by front-loading your brand with content
  • The pre-eminence strategy and risk reversal
  • Personal branding and how that differentiates you

A lot of sales problems are solved by having the servant mentality. It’s even better when it perfectly intersects with front-loading brand content and transparency, so people know what to expect. Mentality comes through in everything you say and do, and when your personal brand boosts your expertise, you create a better context for client relationships.

What is the secret to mastering the 18-month lead nurture cycle and why does it lean so heavily on technology? How does it influence the relevance of agents? On this episode, guest Jesse Passafiume gives us insights on digital handshakes and “no lead left behind” platforms. Learn about how these benefit both relationship based agents and portal based agents.

If you want to be a relevant agent you have to get on that 18-month cycle and figure out how to manage it. -Jesse Passafiume  

Takeaways + Tactics

  1. Most of the magic takes place in the 12-18 month period after you generate a lead.
  2. Make your profile photo and description consistent across social platforms.
  3. Don’t get obsessed with pro-quality on social media - authenticity often beats professionalism.

On this episode we discussed:

  • Building multi-platform customer journeys with digitization
  • The 12-18 month tail in lead nurture and how agents miss opportunities
  • Digital handshakes and combining high-tech with high touch
  • Building a volume knob in your lead platform
  • The relationship between tracking and conversion rates

Just because someone isn’t planning to make a move in the next 3 months, that doesn’t mean they’re a worthless lead. To make sure no lead is left behind, you need to leverage with digitization and systems. This will allow you to create multi-platform customer journeys, and harness the magic of the 18-month lead nurture process. Lead with the willingness to provide value and take pride in that, because leads reveal themselves through those conversations.
