The fortune is in the follow-up. -Matt Johnson
There’s a difference between marketing to people who are already searching for homes, and people who stumble on your content on their social timelines. The latter is colder so it requires more patience. A key mistake we make is ignoring warmer leads like people who already know us, people we meet through door knocking, and people who are already looking for an agent. Change that mindset and you’ll change your conversion rate.
