6 Creative Video Strategies that Create Sales 

Increase your team’s video presence for immediate sales success.

By Sherri Johnson, CEO | Founder

The time has come.  It’s time to create video and leverage it for unbelievable success.  A very high performing and top agent I coach was hesitant to start shooting videos.  She actually cussed me out and really wanted nothing to do with any video….ever!  After getting her to try I said “Just do it.  Jump in the deep-end and just start it today…right now.”  I went on to say, “Just shoot it in one take and don’t watch it again… don’t make it perfect, the more authentic and real, the better.”  She really didn’t want to do it and somehow, she shot her first video, posted it and that was it.  Our video…

Hit them where it hurts! Their mind and their wallet!

Too many agents are focused on their splits. These agents need to worry about how much they will make rather than negotiating an extra few percentage points.

When recruiting an agent, if they ever ask about what your split is, I tell them that I’m not really worried about that right now, we can always make money work. I’m more concerned if I’m a fit for you and if you are a fit for our company.

That usually puts the agent at ease, and it gives you time to articulate your company’s value proposition. If they still ask you what your splits are, I ask them if they’d rather have 98% of Dwight’s Beet Farm in “Anywhere, USA” or 1% of Facebook? Most people would take that 1%...why? It’s all about…

It’s All About the Appointment

There’s something about this business that bugs me. We are always looking back. You know, we celebrate what we sold last month, last quarter and last year. We boast to the public and each other about the number of units and volume we sold during any specific time frame. For many of us, we plaster it all over social media with fabulous graphics celebrating this past success. But here’s the thing, yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is all we have.

As a team leader, you are charged with generating leads, driving revenue, and pushing your team to achieve beyond its wildest goals. So yeah, it’s nice to pat the team on the back for a job well done in the past, but it’s more important to challenge them about what really matters –…

 How do I utilize video in my recruiting process?

Video is something that you would think would be utilized way more in your everyday recruiting activities. The fact is, it's nowhere near as used as you think it would be. Videos can be used in every step of the recruiting process.

1.After you speak to a prospect to have them come in or an in-person interview, you send them a VIDEO confirmation.

2.While you are in the interviewing process, you can show testimonial VIDEOS of your agents (Make sure it's less than 1.5 minutes and make sure there is not script that your agents use. When speaking "off the cuff," it comes off way more natural to the prospect).

3.After you are done with the interview, if you haven't closed them to join your…

So often team leaders set up their teams without setting expectations. This leads to frustration for both the agent team member as well as the team leader. Clear cut expectations are necessary to ensure everyone knows what you expect from them every day, week, month, quarter and year.

Having clearly communicated guidelines for each member of the team also means that they will have greater clarity, daily behaviors and ultimately sales success.

When you lack clear expectations team members end up creating their own set of work behaviors that may or may not be in sync with what you expect of them. For example not having told your team that you expect they work from your office and not home is a very common issue. This is easy for the team leader to…
