The pop-by is exactly what it sounds like - you “pop by” someone at home. This works great for anyone in your sphere of influence, including current and past clients, referral partners, friends and family, and even prospects you’ve been in contact with.
In our latest episode we talk about the beautifully simple, old-school tactic known as the pop-by. Greg inherited his love of the pop-by from his father Terry McDaniel, a 40-year veteran of the business, who masterfully used the pop-by to keep in touch with past clients and sphere of influence to generate referrals.
We talked about the mindset of the pop-by, such as WHO deserves a pop-by, why you should even do them and how to approach them with the confidence of knowing that people honestly want to see you.
Then we shared some specific scripts for breaking the ice, starting conversations and wrapping up your pop-by with powerful questions that add value. We also shared proven ideas for value-add items to bring, and what to leave if no one is home.
We finished by sharing a powerful script called The Carousel, which you can use to generate solid leads off pop-by’s, and how to use personalized messages and videos on Facebook as a “digital pop-by.”
By the end of this episode you’ll be armed with the mindset, scripts and tactics you need to effectively use pop-by’s to generate leads and referrals!
