Lead generation doesn’t have to be complicated. Wherever people are, there is an opportunity to find a prospective customer. Successful real estate agents know this – and they’re always on the lookout for a good lead. Sometimes, this might take some effort and creativity. Other times, your leads might be hiding in the most obvious place.
In KW MAPS Coaching’s BOLD Pivot experience, students are challenged to time block and call 100 contacts within a week. Some agents decide to take the challenge a step further and vow to have 100 real estate conversations within a single day. Making these contacts might seem like a daunting task, but all it takes is a few lead generation ideas to get the wheels in motion.
Some of these methods may already be on your radar, and some you might never have thought of. No matter your initial reaction, consider the possibilities. Ask yourself what 100 contacts could do for your business, and give it a go.
The best way to start is to choose three lead generation methods to focus on. Set goals for each, create action plans, and track your results. And, if you choose to lead generate through events, make sure to maintain the recommended social distancing and safety measures or, if possible, keep things virtual. If you are putting together a virtual event through video conferencing, don’t forget to set in place settings that will require users to provide an email address in order to access the content.
