Every agent - no matter how many years (or days) in the business - has something that sets them apart from other agents. In our latest episode, 6 Figure Coach Genny Williams shares the process to finding your Unique Edge.
1. Never use words like Integrity, Honesty or Trustworthy in your marketing.
2. Find your Unique Edge by first looking at your skillsets and success stories.
3. Build an Ideal Client Profile starting by listing the types of clients you don’t want.
We start by taking a question from an agent via Facebook on how to deal with the objection: “Why shouldn’t I just work directly with the listing agent?” Greg gave his perspective and favorite scripts, and then Genny shared how to use your stats, concessions and negotiation skills to answer that objection.
Then we cover how to eliminate this objection upstream with better marketing, and why most agents are using bland and boring marketing full of buzzwords they should never use, like Honesty and Integrity.
Genny then gave us an overview of the process to find your Unique Edge, starting with your skillsets, past experience and success stories. She shared her own story of using her top 3 skillsets in her marketing, and stories of successful clients who’ve done the same. We also cover two different approaches you can take as a new agent, and why Genny told everyone that she was new to the business.
We finish by showing you how to narrow down your ideal client - starting with who you don’t want to work with - and how to overcome obstacles and mindsets that hold you back from working exclusively with your ideal clients.
