On this episode of Free Broker School, we’re going to dive deeper into how to conduct a successful weekly office sales meeting. If you missed Part 1, start here! Part 2 topics include:

FoodMUST HAVE FOOD!
Potential Sponsors: Title company, builder, home inspector, lenders, insurance agent, home warranty company, etc… Cost – $4 per person

  • Find 5 or 6 places and rotate them
  • Panera, Burger King, Bagel Place, Delis, Cupcakes, Costco etc…
  • Must be finger type foods that they can take and eat at their seat or desk
  • Have coffee, tea, and juices
  • Don’t forget paper products
  • Put food out 20 minutes before meeting starts
  • Have just enough…
  • Usually sponsors will just offer a check or credit card and have you order food

FUN — Light and Jovial — Like a cocktail party

  • You set the tone
  • If you are having fun — they will have fun
  • Be flamboyant
  • Be dramatic
  • Get your agents involved in the meeting
  • Always have a surprise or activity
  • Must have a fun event or announcement (contests)
    • Interaction is key
    • Activities
    • Group activities

  • New markets
  • New skills
  • New tips & tricks

Compliance — keeps agents abreast of new laws and regulations

  • Try not to make this too boring
  • Handle it quickly and efficiently

  • Can be an office goal
  • Build their mentor pool
  • Offer cash bonus
