With the new year upon us, it’s time for us to start our business planning for the next 12 months, and a huge part of business planning is constantly refining our sales skills and processes. How do we switch from a prospecting-heavy model, to maintaining relationships with repeat and referral based clients? What are the key points a new licensee should be focusing on to start getting traction early? On this episode, sales expert, author and trainer, David Hill discusses how to improve our sales technique and the correct mindset to propel our businesses into profitability.
If we want to be successful in this business, we need to think about being fair, and doing what’s fair to everyone in the transaction process.
The mindset in the real estate industry seems to generally be antiquated because of the inability of the majority of agents to adapt to more effective, modern techniques.
If you’re able to close a lot of deals, but don’t get any repeat business, it’s a sign that you’re a good prospector but not proficient at servicing clients. We can start off prospect heavy, but after 3-4 years, we should have a big enough database to transition into repeat and referral business.
