With Q4 already underway, your pipeline maybe feeling a bit frozen. However, now is the time to fine tune your marketing and get in touch with distance real estate clients and leads. Try the five marketing ideas below to convert leads and generate referrals from past clients.
How to Stay in Touch with Real Estate Leads
Let’s face it, you’re unable to immediately answer every email and text message that comes your way. However, it’s extremely important you follow up with online leads immediately. If you are generating any leads on your personal website or any home search sites, you’ll need to automate your follow-up. In fact, HubSpot (a major software product for inbound marketing) found waiting just five minutes to follow up with leads decreases your chances of making contact by ten times. With so many real estate agents competing for an online presence, internet leads especially need your time and attention.
Automating your follow-up will save you time, money, and energy. Each time a real estate lead leaves their name and email on your website, they should automatically be enrolled into an email workflow. With Zurple, each lead generated receives a personalized email within five minutes of their inquiry.
