A. It’s different for everyone, and impossible to predict your results. I’ve seen some agents get immediate business. For some it took months, others didn’t know how well it did because they didn’t take the time to measure.
But after investigating a little, unscientifically trying to determine the “success factors,” I got a hunch that it all revolved around one thing: QUALITY of their power list. I estimate this will apply to you as well.
Bottom line? If you’ve failed to maintain regular, monthly contact with your house list (or you don’t have one at all), don’t be surprised to find most of them don’t know who you are. One agent told me her Mother didn’t even realize the newsletter was from her!
So it may take time and implementing a few “boosting” strategies we’ve learned (and will teach you) to super-charge your Power List.
BUT THAT’S THE GOOD NEWS, because you’ll now own a tool for keeping your Power List the highest quality possible – so you become THE agent they think of when they think real estate.
Plus, you’ll be getting something our “beta testers” didn’t have – years of testing and tuning this marketing tool. You won’t be re-inventing the wheel. You won’t have a “learning curve” to work through. It’s been done before you.
Of course, you’ll have to manage a “Power List” (it’s VERY EASY and I’ll show you how starting from day one). And you’ll have to keep a simple data base (I have a saying: “money doesn’t grow on trees – it grows on databases!”). And, of course, you’re going to service the good clients that come your way by referral or direct business.
I’ve made a huge effort to ensure even the “slowest” agent gets results as quick as possible. And once they start rolling in – it’s an awesome feeling.
