Ready, Set, Go… with Contactually in 2015

Ready, Set, Go…with Contactually!

The prime home buying and selling season is right around the corner so now is a very good time to organize your contact list to be ready and set to go in 2015.

Address BookWhile preparing your holiday cards and letters you can also update your contacts/database. Not sending a holiday mailing this year? How about setting aside some time to pick up the phone and give your clients a call to wish them Happy Holidays, and  verify you have their current contact information?

Managing your database is no small task but it is one of the most important systems you can have in place to ensure the success of your business.  We know that many agents/brokers don’t have a formal system to keep track of their clients and important contacts. As you know, the best source of business has always been referrals from people who you know. According to the National Association of Realtors, over 40% of buyers in 2014 found their agent through a referral and for first-time home buyers (think Millennials) it was 52%. I can’t think of a better reason than that to stay in touch with the people in your sphere.

We understand how important keeping track of your database and a follow-up system is to your success. In February of 2015, CB Bain | Seal will be launching company-wide the Contactually CRM program. Contactually is a contact relationship management (CRM) program which will assist you in following up with your most important clients and your sphere of influence so you remain top of mind when people have a home buying or selling need.

downloadHow will you learn to use Contactually?  We’ve got you covered.  The first week of February we will have in-person training workshops with the Contactually staff in each region to get you started. Our education team, the Principal Managing Brokers and branch staff will be extensively trained so they can assist you in getting up and running.  In addition, we have a series of 12 webinars scheduled for you to learn how to use the program and to learn best follow-up practices.  The CB Bain | Seal Eventbrite channel will have the dates and times of all of the events.

Contactually graphicNow I bet you are wondering how much all this will cost? Normally Contactually would cost $39.95 per month but the best part of all, as a CB Bain Seal broker there is no cost to you. However you may want to spend some time to get your database organized, even though  Contactually will  gather and merge your contacts from several sources:  Gmail, Yahoo mail, Outlook, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter to name a few.  We are confident that once your are setup and running with Contactually, you will see a dramatic increase in your business; so confident that we were willing in invest in Contactually and you!
