Summary

In our industry, we almost always talk about what the hottest new tech is, or what the latest lead generation strategy is.

People want the recipe or the “secret sauce” to closing more deals and doubling their business.

But here’s the magic of this episode and it serves as a great reminder, often times you don’t need fancy or complex marketing strategies, you just need to build a sphere, stay in front of them, let them know that you like them, let them know that you want to work with them, and you want to work with other people just like them.

Join me as I interview Josh Lewis, a 20-year veteran of the mortgage industry and co-founder of Buywise Mortgage on the strategies they implement to continue to capture repeat and referral business from their database and the other strategies that they’re implementing to continue to grow their business.

Quotes:
This is how we follow up with our database, we say "Hey, we’re in the business, we do loans, and we want to do your loan and your friends and family’s loans."

If every closed customer brings us another closed customer, marketing takes care of itself.
