We all hate to hear it, but if you set aside 20-30 minutes a week to sign your clients up for snapshots, you’ll reap the benefits in the future.

Here are a couple of stats* to think about as you slot time in your busy schedule:

 Only 12% of consumers used the same agent. (Ouch.)

 48% of consumers found their agent through a referral.

 *Source: The NAR 2013 survey of buyers and sellers.

In closing, just because you send amazing content, doesn’t mean everyone will read it. Like leads, you can’t convert all of them. If you stick with it though, you will have clients that engage with the meaningful content you send, and no content is more relevant than the Market Snapshot.

    Using the system for the first time in years and really enjoying the results. The Market Snapshot is a great tool combined with a text to the client that it just went out to them…they don’t just let it sit in their inbox. “Hey Bill its John Carroll just wanted to let you know I just sent a Market Snapshot via email. It details all the real estate activity in your area. Hope you like it and if you have any family or friends that would like one for their home just let me know.”

    Im excited to get this implemented this week. Most of my pc and coi have a great connection with me but there are so many to still reel in closer. This is a super tool.

    Is there a way to set defaults so prospects can sign up and get snapshots just with an email addess? Providing a street address has proved a stumbling block. I have received many incomplete signups. I’d rather send keep in touch with someone who provides only an email address than not!

      Hi Robynne, there is no way to sign up for a Market Snapshot with just an email address. At minimum, a zip code is required for buyer snapshots, while a complete address is required for seller snapshots.

      While keeping in touch with the folks that only provide an email address would be useful, without knowing their area of interest or subject property, we can’t tailor a report that would be of interest.

    Great information. I will dedicate my time to having all my clients enrolled by end of the month and adjust some that I have in system already!
