Friday Freebie: Scripts that Make Asking for Recommendations Painless

May 22 2015

thumbs up on couchAsking clients for a recommendation can feel awkward, especially if you don't have a game plan for initiating the conversation. If being unsure of what to say has been holding you back, you're in luck. This week, we're highlighting a compilation of free scripts you can use to ask clients for reviews that highlight all of your hard work.

Scripts: Asking Clients for Reviews

Scripts are valuable because they alleviate the discomfort of not knowing how to request a recommendation. Asking for reviews requires a different approach for each buyer or seller. What you'd say to a client upon closing differs from how you'd broach the subject six months later.

A new guide from Zillow provides helpful scripts for each situation. It even offers dialogues that help you plant the idea that you will eventually be asking for a review early in the transaction. This mentally prepares your client for your 'ask' moment starting from the beginning of the relationship.

Not every client is comfortable with writing, so this downloadable guide offers scripts that help guide your client into drafting a painless review. Conversation prompts encourage clients to write reviews highlighting your niche expertise (condos, dealing with HOAs, etc.). The idea is to earn more client reviews by making writing them as simple as possible for your clients.
