• Master zero-cost lead generation before spending money on leads.
  • Build your database from the ground up -- start with your sphere, then add leads and eventually add media buys while publishing content online.
  • Get really good at one lead gen strategy before adding anything else.

How do you build a real estate team that dominates your city? In this special live interview, you’ll learn the lead generation and brand-building strategies that Tampa Realtor Andrew Duncan used to become the No. 1 agent in his market.

Duncan is the founder of The Duncan Duo, No. 1 Re/Max agents in Florida and No. 8 in the world. In addition to being endorsed by Barbara Corcoran (“Shark Tank,” The Corcoran Group), The Duncan Duo is the official real estate representation for the Tampa Bay Lightning, and you can hear Duncan every Sunday morning at 10 a.m. on WFLA 970.

Database marketing Hangout

Host Frank Klesitz with guest Andrew Duncan

“If we were going to do something, we were going to master it and get really good at it and implement it before we added anything else.” -Andrew Duncan

We started with Duncan’s background, selling just one home in his first year (to his parents) and how he started with a database of only 500 and invested his time prospecting expireds and FSBOs.

You’ll also learn how Duncan experimented with email newsletters to educate his sphere and basically did everything he could for free before spending any money on lead generation.

“Going after the listing was — I knew — the key to success … you have to have a great listing operation to be successful,” Duncan explained.

Duncan’s first big marketing breakthrough was discovering Craigslist posting for his listings. Investing in coaching, hiring new agents and working REOs helped him generate more leads than he could handle and laid the foundation for future growth.

“A big turning point for us was about five years ago, hiring a coach and then building out advertising campaigns that were more of a media buy,” Duncan noted. “TV, radio, Zillow, realtor.com. That’s when we really started becoming a marketing agency.”

Duncan shared how he corrected his biggest mistakes in leverage and team building by establishing systems for finding, hiring and training the right agents. You’ll also learn why Duncan’s team only adds one lead gen strategy at a time and masters it before adding anything else.

All throughout the process of building his team, Duncan published content and gathered online reviews to support his other lead generation efforts and made it easy for potential clients to find him online. Click here to see Duncan’s fully optimized YouTube channel.

Awareness and discipline have been key to Duncan’s success, and you’ll see that in his methodical approach. There’s a lot to learn and absorb in this Hangout, so be sure to take plenty of notes.

More importantly, learn from Duncan’s example and strive for a more disciplined, systematic approach to generating leads and growing your business.
