As sales managers, our job is to motivate and push our agents to help them reach their goals. Done the right way, it is very easy to create a cadence of high performance by setting the bar higher. When you create an environment of high energy and accountability, you can easily inspire success among your agents.
Here are some ways to effectively create more listing and sales production during the next quarter:
- Clearly communicate team goals and discuss them every week at your sales meetings. Include your team on the sales meeting agenda and post your goals on sales boards.
- Talk to your agents weekly to find out what they are working on. Ask them how many listing units and sales units they have coming in for that month. After the third time you check in with them, they will begin to grow accustomed to reporting their goals, progress and success to you.
- Share successes and upcoming lister and buyer needs at every single sales meeting. Ask them how many people are currently in negotiations. Not only will this build confidence, but also it will get agents engaging with each other and working together as a team.
- Re-issue and re-excite agents about their existing database of leads. Some of your agents have hundreds, maybe even thousands, of leads sitting in their database they could be prospecting. Remind them that there may be a goldmine of leads that they already have. Encourage them to send out two emails a month offering their services to these leads. This will result in new business.
- Conduct a call event in the office and invite agents to attend to acquire new business. They should bring in lists of past clients and current clients. Motivate them to call expireds, get in contact with their sphere, and follow up with open house leads. Track the number of new sales and appointments from this event and share at your next sales meeting. Success is contagious, so more people will attend your next call event after seeing the success that was generated at the first one.
It is important to be a sales manager that is proactive and drives activity in the office. Your agents will appreciate the push that will help them reach their goals, and you will reap the benefits of an additional 20 percent in listings and sales!
