If you haven’t heard my interview with Harcourts legend Garth Makowski yet, I think you’ll get heaps of value so be sure to check it out after this. It’s at topagentsplaybook.com/10
I’m also delighted to let you know that Garth will be one of our key speakers at RECHARGE at Jupiters Casino on the gold coast coming up next month (which is October 2015)
And if you haven’t grabbed your ticket yet there are now less than 50 available.
To get your 2 day event pass, simply go to recharge2015.com and be sure to join us at the VIP cocktail party on Thursday night.
Winter Olympic gold medalist Steve Bradbury will be there as well as some of real estate’s most successful men and women from around the country and New Zealand.
Before I play you my interview with Elton Jardine who is also from Campbelltown NSW and one of Garth’s competitors, I want to quickly tell you about LockedOn which I believe is real estate’s most fun to use software.
If you don’t know about LockedOn, it’s a cloud based customer relationship management system that is used by a rapidly growing number of top agents.
It’s fun to use because it’s easy and will work with you to manage as many potential sellers are you want.
It’s also loaded with heaps of awesome feature and without going through them all, I want to tell you about one feature the development team headed up by Iain French have added recently.
It’s a feature that will let you actually create physical direct mail letters in seconds and with just a few clicks.
Right now it’s September so let’s say you want to get a special letter out to all your contacts that the big pre Christmas selling window is about to begin as soon as the football finals are over at the end of the month.
You want to send out some love and connect with say 1500 of your VIP contacts and you want to offer them a CMA.
If you or one of your team wanted to do this as most agents do now, you’d print the letter, fold it, stuff it in an envelope, stick a stamp on it then head over the post office if it’s open and mail them.
But if you’re a LockedOn agent, you can do it all without leaving your keyboard with just a few clicks. LockedOn is the only real estate software to work with Agent Mail and the good news is that the cost is about the same.
I’m a huge fan of direct mail and so many agents are now using my suite of direct mail letters build and maintain the highest quality relationships with potential sellers in their pipeline.
So, here’s an idea, what about taking LockedOn for a spin and see if you’re a match?
If you go to TopAgentsPlaybook.com and hit the resources tab at the top right, you’ll not only get a free trial, you’ll see how I’ve set up a very special deal and slaughtered the one of joining price and monthly subscription.
Yes, full disclosure, I’m a very proud partner in the business and LockedOn is a sponsor of this show. But there’s a little more to it than that.
This is 100% Made In Australia technology. Our company is five years old and we plough almost everything we make back into the very best development to make sure each subscriber gets to access the very best software available.
Iain French is our head developer and guides our awesome team to create stunning software as is always looking to build in the next cool feature.
Luke Newton is our head of sales and support and meets with teams right round Australia and NZ each week. Today he’s in Hobart the flies to Queensland. So far Luke has shot 234 explainer videos so our clients know exactly how to use every LockedOn feature there is. But he’s always available for a chat to help out when needed.
Aaron Shiner and myself are the marketing guys.
We bring our combined 40 plus years of real estate industry knowledge to the table so Frenchy and his team develop relevant, useful and practical features that only real estate people can know.
This is not nerds that decided to develop real estate software, it’s actual real estate business owners directing some of the most talented developers in the country to build a beautiful user experience .
You’re about to hear how Elton Jardine leveraged LockedOn to take sales commission from $800,000 to more than $1.3 million in just a year.
That’s the kind of magic that comes with using powerful and robust software to take on he heavy lifting and enhanced customer relationship marketing.
Before LockedOn, Elton was using Outlook to manage 8000 leads his team created. Let’s find out how he got those leads and how he’s taken his business to the next level.
