The new year is the perfect time to wipe the slate clean and start over. If you felt like 2019 left you feeling overwhelmed, disorganized and flustered, then the new year is a good opportunity to get everything together and start fresh. A good way to get started is by acquiring the necessary tools to get everything straight. Here’s a short list of how you can get back on track and make sure you start the year off right:
1. Organize your Contacts. Plain and Simple.
Your contacts are scattered all over your excel spreadsheet and you just don’t have everything in order. That’s okay. It’s never too late to get organized. A real estate CRM will actually help you organize your contacts, whether that means sorting out your Hot Prospects or Past Clients. It will also provide you with a snapshot of how many contacts you have in each category.
2. Create e-mail Campaigns Accordingly.
Once you’ve assigned your contacts to categories and have everything organized, you can actually start creating plans to reach and follow up with your contacts. Now that you have a clear picture of your hot prospects, past clients, current clients and even unassigned contacts in your real estate CRM, you know exactly how to follow up with them and how frequently you should be communicating with them. Assigning a customizable email drip campaign to your prospects is the easiest way to keep in touch. Your automated real estate CRM will do this for you, leaving you to focus on other tasks.
3. Send out a Monthly e-Newsletter.
Even if you don’t seem to have alot of real estate business right away, it is always good to keep in touch with all of your contacts, monthly. You can do this with a monthly e-newsletter, which you can customize based on what you feel your contacts would like to hear about. Doing a monthly update or check-in with your contacts is the best way to stay in touch, without bombarding them with emails that they may unsubscribe to.
4. Download a Mobile Version of your Real Estate CRM.
Your real estate CRM is your bread and butter because it is the tool that will help you stay organized this year, keep in touch and connected.
