Expanding your presence with mortgage leads can boost your business. You could be new to the business or a veteran to the real estate industry. Creating an action plan will help you achieve your
goals and see long term success for real estate contact conversion in the program.
Implementing the following practices with every lead is an effective way to transform your contacts to closings.
The Internet makes it easy for people to shop
for a mortgage online, an important component of great service is providing a timely response. When a consumer submits an inquiry, they are awaiting a follow-up. They could have gone to one site or multiple. Assume that they know why you are calling, but don't quiz them as to the where and when. Simply let them know you are calling to give them the information and answer their questions. Break down the barrier and get them comfortable with you.
If you can’t reach the applicant by phone, follow up with a text message.
Add the contact to your CRM (contact management system) and set up a drip campaign
It’s easy for an applicant to forget you if you’ve only made one attempt to reach out. If your initial response to their inquiry was unsuccessful, try calling again a few hours later.
Consumers may forget to return your call
for any number of reasons, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t interested. Reaching out
multiple times in the first two weeks through a variety of channels (email, phone, text) will remind the consumer to get back to you.
Attempt contact many times in the first week. Follow-up with a voicemail, email and a text message.
Build a long-term pipeline
You should be able to reach many of the contacts you receive you may not connect with all of them right away. Continue building your pipeline of prospects and continue to reach out until you have concluded each lead to the end result. ie. loan closing, not interested ect...Think long term and build your book of business.
Use your CRM for your reminders and drip campaigns.
