Questions & Answers
Why is this training so important?
The traditional bricks and mortar brokerage business model is dead. To survive and thrive, brokers must bridge the gap to the new world of marketing, which involves rapidly evolving technologies. At the same time, sales and marketing principles that always work must be integrated with a new approach. Brokers need to equip themselves, and that’s what this training does.
What's different about this training?
This training grew out of one broker’s success in building one of the most efficient virtual brokerages in the Northwest. His research led him to develop the most powerful and effective marketing tools available today. He kept tweaking the tools and how they integrated with each other, and his passion now is to share this success with other brokers.
Would we have to abandon our Franchise model?
