After downloading Contactually's Relationship Management eBook for real estate agents, you will learn:

  • What to say when following up, and when to say it

contactually ebook coverThe eBook is straightforward and easy to read. We particularly liked how Contactually provided concrete, useful details instead of vague summaries. For example, instead of writing broadly about where prospects come from, the eBook lists out exactly who agents should look to as a source of referrals (friends, family, past clients, other agents, and more).

The book also provides a helpful guide to classify contacts (active prospects, VIP contacts, basic contacts, industry contacts, media contacts, etc.). Organizing your contacts is the first step to creating a plan for nurturing these relationships. Contactually then provides a timetable for reaching out to and engaging these contacts based on how you have classified them, ranging from three to 90 day intervals.
