Now, you might think that words aren’t everything when it comes to wowing potential clients.

Present Hope for Success Closing More Listing Appointments

One of the most powerful ways that Bruce engages potential clients is by giving them hope. Instead of focusing on himself or his team’s accomplishments, he shifts the focus of the presentation to what the clients really want and then offers them hope for how he can help them get it. By taking this hopeful approach, you’ll actually stand out more than the agents who place all of the attention on themselves and make more listing commissions.

Ask the “If” Question to Make More Listing Commissions from FSBO Listing Appointments

Another way to land more listing appointments is by using something Bruce refers to as the “If” technique. This technique is particularly useful when trying to get FSBO listing agreements signed.

Essentially, you ask potential clients if they’d be willing to work with you if you could get them as much or more than they’re currently asking for. Of course, for this technique to be effective, you need to be able to sell these clients’ homes for a price high enough to get them the figure they expect after taking your commission.

Get Listing Agreements Signed by Saying More with Fewer Words

You’ve probably sat through more than a few sales presentations where the speaker seems to ramble on forever; this is exactly what you want to avoid when trying to sell your services to a potential client. Ask clients meaningful questions, and give them meaningful information. Even when handling objections, fewer words really do say more if you’re able to sufficiently address their concerns.

Tell a Story and Make More Listing Commissions

If you aren’t able to handle an objection sufficiently by simply addressing the potential client’s concerns, there’s something else you can do: tell them a story! Talk about a similar issue you’ve solved or a previous client you’ve helped.

By telling these potential clients a story, you’ll be taking them away from their objection while simultaneously making the presentation more powerful emotionally. Ultimately, you’ll land more clients this way and will make more listing commissions as a result.
