Was watching Jeff Glover yesterday on the GSD Mode podcast - great info. He's of course a big proponent of phone prospecting, and actually has every team member go through a 90 day boot camp working on phone skills before joining up. It's really how every new Agent should start - if you can master the phone/listings, then Buyers are a breeze. The guys who start out as Buyers Agents/weak phone skills will have a tough time if they ever want to transition to listings.

I had trouble this morning too. Called mojo an they said it would be fixed in 10 min. Took a few hours and after I had a team meeting, it was good to go.

i was going to write something about it this morning and ask others, but i'm not a giant fan of ricky caruth, so havent been posting that much myself.

good luck in your prospecting.

So when newbies and not-so-newbies ask for support with scripts, how come you don't help them?

I rest my case.

In the meantime, for those of you/us who may actually be having challenges with cold calling, here's at least SOME guidance from SOMEONE willing to help. From this newbie's attempts, you can easily see what he's doing WRONG.

I've been watching some of the Ricky Carruth videos. Am I getting his business model right? He gets the bulk of his business by accumulating and emailing to his large email list using constant contact. And this gets him the bulk of his business??

I've heard of a few other agents doing this with some success, usually in smaller markets with lower average prices. Is anyone else having success doing large numbers with this strategy alone? I would imagine this might work in smaller markets with fewer agents where your email list will not receive too many spam emails.

I've even seen agents in my market advertize free giveaway gifts when the public will email them back their info as a way to accumulate a large list of emails.
But the agents I have seen trying this are not doing much business overall. Which obviously make me wonder if this really works at all in larger higher priced markets.

I would like to hear from agents who are personally doing good business from this marketing strategy and or also from others who have tried it and what your results and thoughts have been!

I have wondered about this business model also. Ricky Carruth does work in a smaller, homogenous market, relative to the major cities of US and Canada. Prices there are definitely lower than major cities. There is however a large "vacation market" in his area.

I have heard him mention on an early video that he does postcard drops in his "farm". He circle prospects. and also he has done Facebook ads, but don't know if those are "pillars" of his business model.

I think in one video he said he had approx. 11,000 emails and about 2500 emails are opened weekly, (he doesn't worry about the un-opened ones).

What I don't get is how he accumulated 11,000 quality emails. If you get 5 emails per day, that would take approx. 10-11 years to accumulate. Doable I suppose. I know that some Agents in the US buy lists of emails belonging to homeowners. As far as I know, one cannot do so in Canada.

...but back to your question Lucky. Is it profitable.?

I don't mind Ricky's system long term, but if an Agent is brand new and follows this approach they'll be broke quick. I still believe the best use of your time is finding people that are serious about selling NOW - my first year I wasted a lot of time on people who never did anything using a passive approach like this.

I like Ricky Carruth. I think his general strategy is the most effective and common one out there -- pick an area, then work your butt off prospecting (phones, doors, open houses) and spend some money on marketing to those people via mailers, bus benches, and online. Start off with a small farm and expand it as you get more money. For his specific area, email works well as it's a lower pricepoint so people probably don't have agents begging to send them information every day. Also, they are out of town vacationers so the information is actually interesting they're not in that market everyday, nor being bombarded from agents in that market everyday as they live elsewere. so Ricky is a bit of a novelty to them calling their cell phones keeping them updated on their vacation home market. I don't think an email newsletter or casual phone convo is going to get you very far in a higher priced urban city. but a combination of an email newsletter, direct mail, bus benches, prospecting, and sweat will work in any market.

Effort (meet as many people as you can and treat them well)
+
Money (remind them you exist and you do business)
+
Consistency (meet and market to the same people over and over)
=
I think this is the basic formula for real estate success in any marketplace

I've been following a lot of the agents on the ZTD facebook group and they are getting some now business calling. Ricky does do follow up calls. I don't think he waits for people to call him from his emails. I think he just uses the emails for branding purposes. I'm just not crazy about his script about asking about the weather and asking if there is anything you can do for them. I just find this confuses people on the other end and irritates them sometimes. I like Lucky's script of saying you're an agent and you want to know if they are thinking of moving or selling. Direct and to the point. If the answer is no then next. I think spending the time to try and ask a series of questions to try and get their email when they clearly have already said they have no interest in moving is a waste of time. Plus there's always the possibility your email can get labelled as spam.

He doesn't ask them about the weather; he comments about the weather as a way of not going straight for the jugular. He doesn't tell them he's a real estate agent; he says he's with Re/Max which everyone knows is real estate. He says he's done $1 million GCI for the past eight years, and I think the reason is that his opening statement is so pleasant and non-threatening--which is decidedly different from other agent calls that FSBO/expireds get. He's not yet in Re/Max's Circle of Legends because that takes ten years of $1 mil annual GCI.

I've been working my way through his YouTube videos and practicing his relaxed approach, but what do I know; I'm still hand-dialing.

The question is: is anybody doing deals from emailing 10-11,000 unqualified prospects.

I suspect it's a combination of prospecting methods.

The script you use is irrelevant. Whatever you are comfortable with. Doesn't really matter. We all pain over stupid details.

At the end of the day it's all about reaching out in volume, in a consistent manner.

Hi Lucky, you can see a lot of agents using this strategy if you join the ZTD FB group. There are some on there who are using the Fearless Agent scripts but using the group for moral support and to gain knowledge etc while calling and making in some cases 200 contacts a day. Ricky's method emphasizes number of emails gotten on the calls vs. just contacts made. It's a very active group.

I never use facebook although I do have an account. I am not very well versed on facebook either. When I search ztd, under groups I couldn't find anything notable. What am I missing?
