Jimmy Burgess shares 10 specific prompts designed for real estate agents that will help you generate leads, grow your business and serve your clients at the highest level possible
ChatGPT continues to get better and better. This article shares 10 specific prompts designed for real estate agents that will help you generate leads, grow your business, and serve your clients at the highest level possible.
The following prompts are easily copied and pasted, but understanding how to write an effective prompt yourself provides the knowledge needed to take your business to a new level. Rajeev Sajja, my co-host of The Real Estate AI Flash on Apple Podcasts, has developed an easy-to-follow formula for writing effective prompts utilizing the acronym R.I. S.E.
Although you may not use this complete formula in every prompt, the framework is helpful in providing ChatGPT the information it needs to give you the best response possible. This is a breakdown of the formula you can utilize:
R – Role
What role do you want ChatGPT to play? In the first prompt below, the first sentence that says, “Act as an expert real estate agent business coach,” is the role.
I – Input
The input you provide helps ChatGPT get a better idea of the goal for the prompt. In the first prompt below, the second sentence where it says, “I am a real estate agent that would like to generate two listings per month in 2024,” is an example of the input.
S – Specifics
The specifics help ChatGPT understand additional details about what you are trying to accomplish through the prompt. In the first prompt below, the third sentence where it says, “I currently generate listings from geographical farming and sphere of influence referrals,” is an example of specifics.
E – Expectation
The expectation you provide helps ChatGPT understand what it is you want it to do or what you expect to be able to achieve from the response to the prompt. In the first prompt below, the last sentence where it says, “Provide me with 20 strategies that can help me generate the seller leads needed to take the two listings per month that I’ve set as my goal,” is an example of an expectation.
Hopefully, this formula will help you write better prompts and, in turn, receive better responses. Now, let’s get to the prompts that we are getting results with right now.
