How Realtors Can Use Texting To Make More Money

“The benefits of working smart are just as profound: better health, often more money, a great work/life balance, more energy, a better self-esteem, exceptional productivity, and satisfaction with work.” ~Ron Alvesteffer


Use cases...where people can see how a product works! We are going to do a use case a day for a few weeks, until you get the point.

These actions are in no particular order.

1). Get a Texting Base account-upload your contacts.

2). Upload and organize by family, friends, ”Realtors”, lenders and investors.

3). Schedule Holiday and birthday text messages at least 4 times/year so everyone you have ever met remembers you are in real estate.

4). Show listings you are tying to secure that you have an SMS Marketing Automation Platform to set you apart from all the other morons who are in real estate. Get more listings because of it.

5). Invite realtors (the other morons) and investors to select open houses using TB. Sell more houses quickly because of it.

6). Organize and manage events with TB

7). When you close a home, schedule annual texts for each year on anniversaries. Get more referrals because of it.

8). On tough deals, send out deal parameters to your lender list to see who can get financing approved. When banks compete (you know the rest)

This will increase referrals, repeat business and stop all the money you lose when people you know use other realtors because they "forgot" you were a realtor.

9). Build your database...

10). repeat.
