Impactful Text Messages

In today’s fast-paced world, real estate professionals must use methods relevant to today’s society to connect with clients effectively. Phone calls to clients are great, but it is a 50/50 chance they will answer. Texting is a powerful tool for real estate agents, allowing personal and immediate communication, allowing for clients to respond when they have a moment. Crafting the right text message/ follow-up scripts is crucial for maximizing this strategy’s impact.
Best Practices for Successful Text Message Follow Ups:

  • Personalization: Customize your text messages with the client’s name and specific details related to their inquiries or preferences.
  • Value Proposition: Offer helpful information beyond just listings, such as local real estate market insights, home maintenance tips, or investment advice. Highlight the unique selling points of a property or the benefits of working with you as a real estate professional.
  • Call-to-Action (CTA): Include a concise and compelling CTA that directs them on the next steps, whether it’s visiting a listing, contacting you, or attending an open house.
  • Conciseness: No one wants to read paragraphs over text. That is what emails are for. Keep your messages brief, focusing on the most important information.
  • Frequency: Find the right balance between staying in touch and avoiding spam. Figuring this out, can be somewhat of a blurred line, as it depends on each unique connection. Use your best judgment and ask yourself “if I was in their shoes, with what i know about what stage of the home buying process they’re in, would I want to receive another text from an agent today?”
Remember, successful text message follow ups requires a combination of strategic planning, personalized content, and a genuine focus on providing value to your clients.
