Here are some tips:
- When contacting members, try an open ended approach where you offer something for free (i.e. a Home Valuation) first. Sometimes this will allow you to better break the ice than leaning on the information provided by the vendor, since they may not remember their activity with that specific vendor. You can always bring up the vendor provided info once you get your foot in the door.
- If a client is not responding to the phone number or email that the vendor provided, utilize the Research Center along with a quick Google search of the prospect and cross reference them both. This will often allow you to find an alternate contact avenue for a lead, so you can gauge how to best proceed with nurturing that business relationship.
