Why make the real estate business harder on yourself? In our latest episode we share some of our favorite hacks for real estate, business and email. You’ll come away with some ideas and resources for getting more out of your time, leveraging yourself with outsourcing, getting multiple things done at once, and simplifying the way you manage projects, email, calendar and social media.
Takeaways + Tactics
1. Know your hourly value and delegate everything that’s worth less
2. Look for ways to get multiple things done at once with no more effort
3. Use tools like SaneBox and FollowUp.cc to prioritize your email inbox and simplify your life
We start with a couple questions from the Lead Gen Scripts & Objections FB Group on circle prospecting, whether to leave a message and how to respond when someone asks how you got their number. Greg pointed out that he always leaves messages, and is completely honest about how he got their number and then redirects the conversation to how companies sell people’s contact information.
We start with a hack that agents often overlook - delegation and outsourcing. We discuss Eileen’s role on Greg’s team as Team Manager/Transaction Coordinator and how to use outsourcing sites like Upwork, 99Designs, Fiverr and TaskRabbit. As Greg explained, you must know your hourly value and outsource or delegate everything that’s worth less. Matt touched on the options for hiring an overseas VA/TC either through MyOutDesk or directly through job boards in the Philippines. We also covered some ways to get work done in public while marketing yourself at the same time.
Next we dive into the tech side of hacking your time. Facebook Live is a great opportunity to get leverage your time by saving the video, uploading it to YouTube, having it transcribed through a service called Rev.com for $1/min, then spinning that written content into your YouTube description, blog articles and social media posts. Keep in mind your overseas VA could handle every part of this process except for shooting the actual live video.
We also shared ways to use IFTTT, Trello, Trimetrade, Sanebox and Followup.cc to save time managing email, calendar, projects and social media accounts. With programs like Amazon Prime and Subscribe & Save there are some great options to have items shipped directly to you to avoid random, time-sucking trips to the grocery store or pharmacy.
