Do You Leave a Voicemail?

Do You Leave a Voicemail?

Are you making the most out of your prospecting time with leaving the right voicemail?

Hi, I am Jeff Chubb and I wanted to share with you the proper technique as well as a successful script when leaving a voicemail to increase your conversation rates.

If you are leaving a voicemail and trying to sell yourself in the voicemal, then you are wasting your time.

A prospect will not all you back from a message where you are talking all about you or some special offer.

So what’s on a selling yourself email? What does it sound like? It would sound something like, “Hi, I am Jeff Chubb with eXp Realty. We have a proven and repeatable system that has been proven to get seller’s more money…BLAH BLAH BLAH

People do not want to be sold. They have deleted the message by the word “proven”. Don’t sell yourself. None of this is about you!

What is the intention of leaving a voicemail? It’s to get them to call you back! So think like a consumer.

So what should you do when leaving a voicemail?

You want to remove your title and leave a lot of curiosity in the message.

So what does that sound like? “Hi, this is Jeff 617-480-2600, I sent you an email. Give me a call when you have a couple minutes. 617-480-2600”

Notice I am not saying a title or anything about eXp Realty or the Chubb Realty Group.

So what are we doing here? We are putting curiousity in the air in regards to “what email?”.

It is EXTREMELY important to not leave anything else other than your phone number. No brokerage information, no website, no details about the services… Nothing.

The only point of this is to get them to call you back so you can do the selling on the phone. You will never...

Online Leads Suck?

Online Leads Suck?

I wanted to share takj to you about the myth that all online leads are bad.

This is something I hear all the time. I also see it in facebook forum after facebook forum how bad they are.

If you are one of my competitors, then yes… Online leads suck. You are definitely wasting your money.

For everyone else, online leads when handled properly can make you a small fortune.

Consider this, yesterday I showed an $11.3 million dollar house… From an online lead! Now it wasn’t an $11.3 million dollar inquiry, we started working together about a year ago when he came in on a crappy $4m house.

Here is the crazy thing, this lead actually passed through all of our buyer agents in our lead distribution system. After no one accepted it, it was assigned to me as the systems failsafe. Because seconds matter when it comes to lead conversion… I called and set the appointment. I don’t compete with my agents, but every once in awhile will take a lead when no other agents want to work the opportunity…

When working online leads you must keep in mind that speed to lead is an absolute must. has done a study and found the optimal response time is within 38 seconds after the lead is generated.

38 seconds!

This is why if you are going to be investing in online leads and want to be successful then you must have the systems in place and the discipline for continuous follow up.

Keep these numbers in mind, last year a 100 million online leads were generated and there were 5 million sales throughout the United States. Online leads aren’t bad. They just take effort.

Like any other lead source, we have had online leads that have taken years to convert and others where we have written an offer on the first house they...
