How to Launch a Digital-First Strategy (via RealtorMag)

David Tal is a man on the mission. His objective?

To usher every one of his real estate brethren into the digital age.

Many agents remain encased in amber – stagnant and stuck following methodologies of a by-gone era.

Does your website have grainy picture and bad design?

Or are you still sticking to Penny Savers and word-of-mouth referrals?

Well tools such as these have rusted over. They’re no longer effective enough to get the job done alone, but now act as supplemental new strategies. Social media, texting, and even drones are some of the latest tricks being employed.

But these new gambits are more than just fads – they are  instruments for success!

In his feature with RealtorMag, David showcases how to get the most out of these new technological assets, and leverage them to corner your market.

Winter is coming…Don’t freeze your real estate momentum

It’s that time of the year. The in-laws are on their way – yes, those people who will walk in and critique how you raise your kids, how you should cook the turkey, or how the hand towels in the bathroom are too scratchy. Real Estate Hates Holidays

We have a solution to avoid all this chaos and annoyance: GET BACK TO WORK! Don’t take the whole holiday season off. There is always time to enjoy the moments of the holidays, but what if we told you that the best agents are those who take advantage of the 4th quarter and holiday season?

The top agents in the game do 70% of their business in the 4th quarter. It’s a huge misconception that things come to a complete halt once Thanksgiving rolls around. Top agents are instead ramping up their efforts now, because they know it will pay dividends over the next 3 quarters.

Believe it or not, there are still plenty of buyers and sellers out there who are very motivated to close out deals before the New Year. So while other agents are using this time to take a backseat, you should be kicking your marketing efforts into the next gear!

Josh describes this as “taking a vacuum to all the leads nobody else is working with, and bringing them into [your] world.”

Lastly, reach out to your former clients during the holidays to “check in”, as this will keep you front of mind. If you are the most available agent, there is no doubt you will win that business, and hopefully, a satisfied customer for life.

Seasons Greetings!
