Proven Strategies

chrisBy Chris Jones

There’s lots of marketing advice out there for agents. Most of it boils down to “do what everyone else is doing”. Here’s a typical strategy you might find in a book: Cold call expireds for 4 hours. Typical results might be 1 lukewarm lead, or no leads at all.

A typical strategy you might find online: buy leads from Zillow. It costs you $1,000+ per month. You share the leads with other agents, and now you’re tired and frustrated.

But you don’t have to do what everyone else is doing. There are better strategies.

We test new lead generation ideas CONSTANTLY, and we take the most effective strategies and turn them into step-by-step guides so that you can follow along and duplicate our results.

These strategies are simple and free, but deadly effective. If you’re tired of agent “group think”, and you’re ready to try something different, give these strategies a whirl. If you struggle, let us know and we’ll try to help.

We publish a new strategy about once a month. Click here to be notified when we do.

Well, you can and this guide will show you how to use free tools and 5 minutes to generate a steady stream of leads.


List to last is the old saying in this business.  Learn the method behind how we listed 114 homes in a single year and all at 8% (or more!) commission.
