What started as a suggestion from a senior client’s daughter he helped at one time became one of his lead generating strategies.

Key Takeaways: 

“At first, I just started my book as just a way to give it out to people as my business card. And then what happened was, it started to become my number one referral tool. I noticed that business cards, yellow letters, and postcards I would spend thousands a month, but if people didn’t request them, they just throw them away. I was noticing people weren’t throwing away my book. Instead of being in the junk, paying thousands of dollars, I was on the coffee table with all the other autographed books from the author.”  – Max Keller 

“If somebody calls us and they want to buy, get help with selling their house, well, then we just autograph the book send it via courier, so they get it right then. Maybe it costs me a few bucks, but it’s by far worth it when you know I’m walking into the appointment, and I’m already pre-sold. I’m not interviewing. They already know me, they’ve already invested.” – Max Keller 

“It’s just a lot more fun. And I will tell you; we have people who called and said, ‘Hey, I read the book. And I should not have read chapter four, how to stay in my house. I think I want to just stay put for a little while.’ And so that avoids us going over to people’s homes when it’s not necessary because I’m sure folks can relate to that. But then, but even better when we go over there. Most of the time, it’s just us. They already know, like, and trust us from the book. And so, it’s just an easier way to buy houses.” – Max Keller 

“A method that our students and we replicate are those business to business relationships. In the homeowner space, a lot of people are just thinking B2C. So, we’re buying lists, we’re stalking lists, we’re texting people – the common theme in marketing right now is just send people a bunch of stuff that they don’t want. What we do is position ourselves as the local experts.” – Max Keller
