#3 Make a digital and physical copy
We can't rely on technology to always have our backs. If you are exchanging information, have a digital and physical copy handy. However your clients stay organized, provide options! For your clients who prefer the pen and paper method, gift them with a Homebuyer Journal to keep them on track!
#4 Revamp your CRM
Most agents already have a CRM tool but are you using it to full capacity? Review your CRM tool and identify what you want out of it. Try new features or consider a different tool that meets your needs. At ATRE, we're always measuring the success rate of CRM. When looking to improve, a quick call with support is helpful for additional training and potential upgrades!
#5 Automate your marketing
Once you have a marketing theme, run with it! An automated marketing tool is great for scheduling your posts or content during prime times. By planning ahead, you’ll stay consistent without the stress! We recommend trying Sked, a social media content manager that schedules your content in advance!
#6 Schedule your work hours and off hours
Real estate can be a 24/7 job. You can provide the best service to your clients when you are prepared. Put time on your calendar to schedule work and personal time. Our team uses Google calendars to schedule meetings and block out time. Also, email away messages are great for keeping staff and clients in the loop for when we're off the clock.
