Here's a tip: Log in to your local MLS and find their list of links of products included in your subscription, or look on the dashboard on your log-in screen and check out all of the logos included there. Click on just one tool that you have never looked at, as a start. You are going to find all kinds of amazing ways to grow your business—all included in your monthly subscription!

Many MLSs now offer a dashboard when you log in with links to all kinds of technologies, training and resources. Log in to the MLS and click on a few of these buttons. You will be amazed at the FREE resources you will find there!

2. Close a listing presentation by demonstrating interest in a property with reverse prospecting.

If you want to ensure you win every listing presentation, go into the MLS and identify the amount of demand for the subject property by using the reverse prospecting tools. This system will allow you to look up every agent that has at least one client with a search criteria matching the home you are you trying to list. Some MLSs system allow you to email every agent with a search that matches the criteria automatically to let them know there is a new property coming on the market.

3. Public records software have great prospecting tools built in!

Public records software allows you to identify and contact targeted prospects within specific geography and property characteristics. There are even ways to prioritize your prospecting efforts by using a Propensity to Sell Score which will identify customers more likely than average to sell in the next six months.

Public records software also makes it really easy for you to print out mailing labels or even connect directly to printing services if you want to identify a target list and then start marketing to them consistently.

If you want to learn more about the MLS technologies available in your local market, log in and look at the list of tools available, and then go to the training section to see which tools have virtual training classes available.
