Real estate is all about referrals. So why do we do such a terrible job of regularly staying in touch with folks, and actually *asking* for referrals? We’re busy. And without a system to regularly follow up with your top contacts, people are probably slipping through the cracks. Well, no more.
If you haven’t heard of Contactually, take a look and stop by its booth (#2113). They’re in the business of automatically prompting you to follow up with your top contacts. They analyze your conversation history with each contact — from email, social media, and phone — and automatically prompt you (via a daily email reminder) to reengage with important people who are slipping off your radar. You’ll stay top of mind with important contacts, get more referrals, and ultimately close more sales.
It’s simple, nearly automatic, and only $20/month.
Better yet, they just launched a new version of their platform: Contactually 2.0. It’s an update to their platform that not only prompts you to follow up with top people, but it tells you what to say — via email templates and news article sharing — and allows you to send personal messages to *groups of people* with only one click.
Want to message all your past clients in the past 6 months? Check
Want to share a new listing with 10 prospects? Check
Want to follow up with a major referral partner to see if anyone else is looking to buy? Check
They literally just launched the platform and it’s a killer. And their iPhone app is hitting the AppStore any day.
So check out their site — www.contactually.com — or stop by Booth #2113 to see what Contactually is all about!
There are so many great evening events to participate in at NAR Midyear. But one of my favorite is REtechnology’s consistently awesome party. Victor Lund and his team do a great job each year of finding amazing venues and great live music. And while all of that is great, what’s really the best part of this event are the wickedly smart and incredibly interesting people that attend it each year.
It’s a hard ticket to get, but if you can get your hands on one for NAR Annual or Midyear, be sure to go and meet some of the great minds that are making a difference in our industry.
In the meantime… I’d highly recommend subscribing to their newsletter! http://retechnology.com/
