Keeping Sales Process Momentum Positive Over the Holidays


2019 Market is Strong Heading into the Holidays

We’re just about to arrive in a double whammy environment for new home sales: less than optimal weather and many competing activities.

The weather might be frightful but …

Yet, the overall market is positive: website visits are up, sales traffic is up, 2019 sales results are good.

How to keep the momentum going through the next several months?

Home Shoppers are in Your Office Because They’re Interested!

A good first step is embracing the idea that home shoppers are visiting your community because they’re interested in buying one of your homes… in many cases, today!

It’s true: the weather might very well be frightful (while that is probably true in Minnesota, there are other locations where the weather is much better than July!).

And, recognize the power of inviting; take advantage of the holidays and your locale for inspiration. Hot apple cider makes any location seem like home! Add some fresh smelling citrus to up the scent if you’re in a warmer climate! A fresh, new look and feel is contagious… and inviting!

Work Your CRM to Drive Traffic

Did you have a chance to read our Top Performer Blog? Our most effective CPS CRM sales manager’s tip for success was persistence with follow-up. 

This Top Performer kept in touch with “his team” using his CPS CRM database — and there’s no better time to reach out than today. Invite “your team” over for holiday treats, coordinate a wine tasting, support a fundraiser for a local food bank. You’re working to be “top of mind” for your team and any of their friends and family considering a new home.

After All, You’re Prospecting for the Long Haul!

That’s a Jeff Shore theme: top performers work the small things over and over. Ryan Taft is one of Jeff’s sales trainers; he produced a great Blog reinforcing the small and consistent message:
  1. Do it! (that is: start now!)
  2. Personalize the Heck Out of It! (and the holidays make this pretty easy!)
  3. Be Consistent! (get started, now; keep at it after January 1!)

Consider New Tools in 2020!
