What do you do with old buyer and seller leads? If you aren’t currently working them, you’re missing out on a ton of opportunities.Join Our TeamNot too long ago, I noticed a major problem within my own brokerage. We generate over 2,000 buyer and seller leads each month. You might be wondering why this is a problem. Well, the issue is that many of these leads aren’t interested in buying or selling right now. This brought up an important question: How can we work leads that aren’t ready right now? After researching the strategies different brokerages across the country use to approach this problem, I found a tactic I really liked. We now put leads into two categories: buyer archives and seller archives. These archives are made up of all the leads we’ve been unable to contact as of today. Whenever a lead comes through, we work them using what we call the “10 days of pain.” This means we’re calling, texting, and emailing leads once a day for the first 10 days we work them. By maintaining consistent communication with leads, we’re able to get face-to-face with as many buyers and sellers as possible.  If you’ve got old leads, it’s essential that you have a system to place them in. Typically speaking, people who haven’t responded within the first 10 days probably aren’t going to be a hot lead. Even so, they probably will be interested at some point down the line. So it is after a lead has been unresponsive for those “10 days of pain” that we move them into our buyer or seller archives. Leads in our buyer and seller archives are loaded into a three-line dialer called Mojo Dialer which all of our agents have access to. This provides a great resource for agents on our team who are looking for leads. We’ve compiled over 50,000 old buyer and seller leads over the years.Until I set up our current system, I was missing out on so many opportunities. If you’ve got old leads, it’s essential that you have a system to place them in. And when you do begin to work these old leads, using a three-line dialer to reach out will be very important. This allows for a high volume of calls to be made each hour without requiring agents to waste their time manually dialing leads. Old leads are very valuable and there’s so much more I could say on the subject.
