Three Things We Learned From This Episode

How to choose the right expansion market

If you’re looking to expand, consider a market you can drive to, not somewhere that requires a flight. You’ll understand how things work and can quickly get there in the event of a crisis. The branding can step in and answer every single question in a market that’s still local, whereas in a market that’s far away, you just won’t know the contractual information, and no amount of branding will be able to make up for that.

Why you need to expand from a position of strength

When you’re expanding into another market, remember to continue to do business in the market you’re in because that market is feeding the expansion one. You’re not going to make money in your new market immediately, so your original business has to be strong enough to support the expansion.

The wrong point to step out of production

Many people say they want to step out of production way too early, when their transactions are still the bulk of the team’s production. If you step out too early, we’ll end up weakening or even destroying the team.

 

Expansion isn’t something to do on a whim— certain conditions have to be present in order for it to succeed. There has to be an opportunity for it, and you have to have a running well-oiled machine running already. If you’re making mistakes in your current market, they will be carried over into the next one, and if you’re doing well that will carry over too. It’s a lot easier to build from a center of strength. The fruits of a good expansion is market dominance, and the perception that you’re everywhere which will attract both clients and agents to our teams.

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

  • How to fuel your goals
    Write down specific a “why” for what you want to do and that will give you the burning desire to get into action. You have to be really specific so that “why” helps you overcome any hesitation, procrastination or inaction.  

  • How to succeed with expired's
    Mirror their emotions whether they are mad or annoyed, get on their side, and then take them where you’re going. Start with mirroring and matching them so they feel understood.

  • The importance of tracking your goals
    In order to keep pushing yourself towards something, it’s important to make note of even small successes. The reason it often feels like we’re not getting anywhere is that we don’t look back at our goals so we can see the small wins.

 

The reason so many agents struggle to get any real results and never reach their full potential is the way they think about the phone. Whether you’re hesitant, scared of rejection, or just not committed to doing it consistently, this shows up in the prospecting results you get. The most powerful thing we can do is dedicate ourselves to the phone, stop telling ourselves negative stories, and keep track of our goals so we can actually see the small wins. This is how we can be unstoppable in 2019.

Three Things We Learned From This Episode

Why you must know your stakeholders

When planning your event, you need to know who your stakeholders are. Those are the people you need to make happy. These stakeholders include the venue, vendor partners, and the attendees. Craft the event to make all these people happy. If we make agents our stakeholders, we’ll get them to buy into it.

 

How events impact your sphere of influence communication

Client events give us the opportunity to have multiple and frequent touch points. We can call them a few times to invite them, confirm their attendance, etc. This gives us a reason to call our sphere multiple times without ever asking for anything.

 

How to optimize the experience  

When planning an event, make sure to walk through the space to see how the people will move through it. Check for any choke points, or any point at which the foot traffic isn’t going towards all the vendors. Remember: controlling the path people take controls the whole experience.

 

Client events can be an opportunity to drive massive traffic which turns into opportunities for our agents. It’s all about thinking differently about events and paying attention to detail. We have to be clear on the experience we want everyone to have. Everyone there should feel loved and valued. We won’t get positive results unless we do this. If we do it well enough, our sphere of influence will grow, the community will look forward to our events, and vendors will endorse us.
