Three ways to get great response rates from agents:
- Before sending a message read the sales agent's profile thoroughly to ensure you get a good feel for what they are looking for in an opportunity
- When sending your first message you want the agent to know as quickly as possible if the opportunity is for them. Be sure to include a high level explanation of who you are, who buys your product or service i.e. your target market and what makes you and the opportunity great for them.
TIP: Your opportunity "short summary" should be very similar to this sentence.
- Finish by explaining why you feel that person would be a good fit for your sales opportunity and that you'd like the opportunity to speak with them in further detail.
Avoid copy and paste generic messages to multiple agents. It's very obvious when this happens and it demonstrates that you haven't taken the time to read their profile. Be personal and you'll see results much faster.
