Top 6 secrets to maximising your brokerage income from every client
1. Solidify your goals
Write them down and commit to them regularly. Set clear goals and targets which are realistic, achievable, and make you stretch! There are lots of resources available on how to set solid goals. ZERO award winners get there without setting robust goals and a solid plan.
TIP: ALL elite brokers have a coach or consultant. Do you have yours?
2. Ask more questions
Top brokers fully understand their clients’ goals and plans. They have a skill of peeling back the layers of the onion to learn the full story. In other words, you can only know their complete story, and thus provide assurance of solutions, by asking as many questions as you need to ask. Examples are clarification-based questions which clarify their answers and take the conversation one layer deeper e.g. ‘What specifically would you like to improve financially?’
A well-executed, comprehensive plan or road map produced for your client will help you to completely win their trust. Additionally, it will also clearly identify exactly how and where you can help them with their financial plans.
3. Collect more documents
Leading brokers know more about their clients. They intimately understand their asset position, know their cashflow position, and uncover any hidden assets such as unpaid invoices, equipment and of course property security. This will also make it easier to package and settle their finance quicker. Asset finance or invoice financing opportunities can win you the client off the bat. Ultimately, this will generate more business revenue.
4. Provide a full financial solution
Elite brokers excel at positioning and aligning their solutions to meet the clients’ objectives and solve their problems – they position themselves as the ultimate expert and provide multiple solutions within their plan. For instance, mortgage + commercial property refinance (lower repayment / lower rate) + vehicle and equipment finance package + cashflow facility + insurances + card facilities. Certainly, every product solves a problem and with top brokers, this occurs for between 80 – 100% of their clients.
5. Reduce your claw-backs
Maximising your income per client is helping your client the most you possibly can. Basically, it protects your income, strengthens your client relationship & positions you as the ultimate professional. It stops your clients from wanting to leave. Moreover, it also ensures you can spend quality time with each client. It’s not just about how many clients you settle – it’s about how many $$$ you keep. The thornmoney solutions do not come with any claw-backs.
