If you are a real estate broker, director or even investor, there are millions questions you have to ask yourself everyday like “How is the project going on?”, “How many customers are interested in the project?”, “Are there any deals closed yet today?” and so on. These questions are not only for real estate brokers, investors but also for sales and marketing departments. Customers’ data is the lifeblood of any businesses and in the real estate sector, it is not an exception. All real estate brokers want clients’ data because it is the key to get closer to customers and know what they want to provide them what they need.
So how these real estate brokers get the information from customers? There are hundreds ways to do it effectively, and these below tips are some of them.
Tip 1: Purchase available customers’ data from multiple sources.
After successfully purchasing clients’ data from multiple different sources, data will be sent to the company’s marketing consultants. These staffs will call customers for advice and make an appointment with them to go to the open house. This strategy of marketing is called “telesale”.
Able to get a huge amount of data from customers with a lower cost.
The company’s staffs can advertise products to many customers.
Take an optimal advantage of staffs’ working time.
The results are quite unpredictable because it depends mostly on customers’ registration.
The quality of clients’ information taken by this way is difficult to estimate.
There might be some customers bothered by the kind of marketing, they might say something bad to marketing staffs. This could affect those staffs in a long term making them feel uncomfortable leading to the decrease of the working productivity.
In addition, the company has to pay extra fees for other services such as the phone service.
It also takes a lot of time to call and consult customers till they want to purchase products.
Tip 2: Create a separate marketing department for the real estate transaction floor.
Following this tip, the real estate transaction manager will create a marketing department or recruit a few marketing talents to run ads and provide data to the company’s consultants.
Able to generate more new lead.
More and more clients that are interested in the projects will register.
Running ads helps identify potential customers and make it easier to indicate the performance of your marketing campaigns.
This could help you gain more experience to prepare for the next projects.
The number of customers’ data is low while the price invested is quite high.
The fixed costs that the company has to pay for marketing staffs, campaigns and ads are high, as well.
Talents in real estate sector are hard to find and even harder to be pursued to stay in the next projects.
To plan for an effective and professional marketing department, you need at least 7 staffs: 1 manager, 1 PR executive, 1 digital executive, 1 developer, 1 content creator, 1 designer and 1 specialist in optimizing the system and analyzing the results.
If you calculate the price for running ads plus the price for purchasing new technology, the total might cost several hundred millions of VND.
If there are just several marketing employees in the whole real estate transaction company, the workload will be overwhelming.
Tip 3: Do marketing training for consultants to find customers’ data on their own.
This is often used by some big real estate transaction floors.
These floors have a really professional marketing team with a lot of experience, good skills and highly qualified.
The real estate transaction floors will use this tip, assign targets, KPIs and big commissions to their consultants.
These employees will be trained and learn in-depth information about the projects, pros and cons, or how to identify customers. They will be taught basic information about how to run several common ads like Google and Facebook.
Each of them will be given a certain amount of money by the company to run ads on their own.
The real estate transaction floors’ managers and directors are no longer mostly responsible for customers’ data, but this responsibility is now directly on the team of consultants. They are actively seeking for clients’ information in their own.
This tip could help maximize the employees’ ability and working productivity, as well as their connections with prospects.
The company needs to recruit a large number of consultants, so the fixed costs might be high.
It is quite risky if consultants cannot meet the KPIs.
These consultants usually do not specialize in running ads so it might take a lot of time to train them professionally, it might cost a lot, as well and ultimately, the results of the company’s performance is hard to indicate.
Moreover, there might be some price competition between these staffs to push the Bit advertising costs up high.
In addition, consultants need to spend time on writing contents, running ads, tracking the performance. As the result, they might have less time to maintain a good service care for customers.
But of course, you still could find a way to do the tip. In fact, many companies hire a professional real estate marketing team to increase their working productivity and spend more time with customers.
