Most agents overestimate the relationship they have with a client, and not doing enough follow up makes them lose that contact. What relationship building model can you implement to stay top of mind? What is the biggest barrier systems and detail oriented people have to cross in order to start playing in their strengths? How can high S and C individuals handle the people-oriented requirements of the job? On this episode, the great Glenn Twiddle is back to share more of his high level sales tactics.
Three Things We Learned
Real estate is a fine balance between being a people’s person and being able to handle the rejection that comes with that
You have to ask yourself if you are enough of a people person that when you get that one contact you can communicate with them and close the deal. But you also have to be able to tolerate the rejection so that it doesn’t derail you.
Sales and marketing skills are important, but high operations skills are required to level up
For a real estate agent to be able to level up and become an entrepreneur, and for them to start bringing in an income above $500k, the required skills become less about sales and more about systems and team building. Agents who can get to this point become very successful.
80% of your sales are going to be made between your 5th and 12th contact
It’s highly unlikely that you’ll make a connection that leads to a sale with one touch, so you have to stay persistent and consistent in following up with people. Whatever you do, you can’t just do one thing, you have to implement a sequence of communication.
High operations people are going to lend themselves more naturally to scaled, marketing efforts and jobs that require a lot of intellectual effort to set up a system. It is the difference between making $200k and making millions. However, these people don’t get to flex that muscle if they can’t get past that initial phase of getting the sales skills so they can get over that hump to where they have the time money and resources to start investing in a business.
