How to Make the Magazine Work For YOU

Operating partner of the E to P Group and regional director of KW Northern California and Hawaii Caryn Prall feels so strongly about the lead generation power of the personally-branded magazine that she created her own to set an example for her team and new prospective Keller Williams agents. 

“Our agents and recruits are constantly looking at ways to stand apart,” she says. “This tool allows them so many options – print, social, web. And the ability to customize to have their own brand and storyline is a win-win!”

KW agent Jay Cermak of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, believes the magazine is a valuable resource to share with his sphere.

“I love how luxurious the magazine feels!” he says. “Great articles, personalized market data that I can control, and it would have taken me a lot longer to come up with all the articles on my own!” In order to make it his own, Cermak leans into light customization. “I changed a few colors, added logos and branding, updated all pages with my info and market info, and spent some time creating something valuable for my clients and branded toward my business.”

Once he’s customized the issue with his personal brand, Cermak hosts the issue on Google Drive and shares a hyperlink to it in emails to his clients. He also had a few copies printed for local clients and shared the link with people who registered with him based on a Facebook ad.

“I was able to get a few buyer leads in my pipeline from promoting the magazine on Facebook ads through Campaigns in Command,” he says. “The magazine goes into my pre-listing packets as well, and buyer packets when I meet with buyers to add even more value to my listing and buyer presentations.”

For maximum benefit, Cermak recommends tying the magazine into quarterly touches with your sphere.

“If you combine the magazine with your quarterly calls and plus it by updating the homeowner on their current market value, you will become the true economist of choice,” he says. “Set a baseline value today on their home, and next time a magazine comes out and you call to check in on the client, provide your magazine, ask for feedback, and give a market update.”
