International Sales Best Practices

March 7, 2011 3:23 pm Published by

 Real estate project marketing can really benefit from the use of a CRM database. I have written before on the tracking technology that is available to provide the transparency needed for qualified lead generation. In this post I wanted to share some of the best practices we have incorporated across emerging real estate markets. It has been my experience that you can really benefit from leveraging CRM in emerging real estate markets because less of your competitors are using it. Overall, the benefits CRM have to offer are the ability to manage more relationships by updating your conversations with people in the CRM database. If you get it out of your head and set next step reminders your relationships will definitely appreciate it. Below are some best practices we hope will increase sales for you:

1. Start by logging in and staying logged in

2. Install mobile applications affiliated with your CRM to stay connected

3. Record your activities and always schedule next steps

4. Have your sales funnel report open during meetings > shows how many opportunities, where they are in the sales stage and how much it is worth. This will help you easily identify where you need the most help.

5. Use email templates to save time

6. Garbage in > Garbage out = Make sure you are putting the most meaningful information in there so the database is useful. Its only as good as the data in it.

7. Search for duplicate records so you don’t have the same person in the database twice

By following these best practices we believe you start to build a more valuable database for yourself and clients.

As ULI's Ed McMahon explains in @smartcitiesdive, it's a way for communities to differentiate themselves from others – and since most are near highways, they're already transit-ready!

While I knew this day was coming, I’m still sad to see this announcement officially go out…

So, it’s story time about the early days of Google Optimize and how it came to be.

A busy housing data week ahead. Mon @NAHBhome / @WellsFargo builder confidence HMI; Tue @uscensusbureau / @HUDgov housing starts; Wed @nardotrealtor existing home sales; Fri @uscensusbureau / @HUDgov new home sales. 2023 will see more weakness, but rebound shaping up for 2024.

Big news today!

The company I started 16 years ago @AltosResearch has been acquired by HW Media - the publishers of @HousingWire.

@ClaytonACollins has built a terrific operation, with great growth, and an exciting team. I’m lucky to get to join our efforts.
