sms: It's all about what the seller wants - or is it? It's YOUR job to EDUCATE. - 07/18/08 12:39 PM

"It's all about whatever my seller wants to hear."
Recently I've read some interesting comments in some of the blog posts about agents adopting new marketing tactics - or not adopting them for that matter.
What stands out in my mind the most is a comment that read, "It's all about whatever my seller wants to hear."  Stop there.  Isn't it also about the buyer? These comments triggered an irritation that just needed to be scratched.  So here we go.
Ultimately, yes, if you want to win listings, pleasing the seller is what needs to happen.  But as an agent, … (10 comments)

sms: Austin, TX visit, success! - 05/13/08 12:41 PM
Last week, Mike and I made a quick trip to Austin, Texas to visit both current and potential clients. One of our current clients, who is managing a 200+ unit condo development in the Barton Springs area of Austin, has been leasing a vanity code for nearly 6-months. By providing out text-for-info service, Goomzee Connect, to market the Barton Place Condos, people driving by are able to send a text message to learn more about the development (size, price, beds, baths, amenities, contact info, etc.). She has created billboards and sandwich boards with the vanity GCode; BARTON. Mike and I visited … (0 comments)

sms: Were you one of Verizon's 20 billion in February? - 03/31/08 10:50 AM
As popularity continues to increase, I wanted to share Verizon's press release information regarding their nearly double growth in text messages sent in just 6 months. We are beginning to see the increase of national advertisers using this marketing tactic to reach more of their customers in a more personal way, by using their cell phone; something that rarely leaves their sight.
As posted by Fierce Mobile Content 3.31.08:
Verizon Wireless announced that its subscribers sent and received close to 20 billion text messages in the month of February, just eight months after the operator's first 10 billion-message month, June 2007. … (2 comments)

sms: Advertising your waterfront listings - what's your technique? - 07/02/07 06:00 PM
This weekend I spent my time on Northwest Montana's beautiful Flathead Lake.  As we all know, a beautiful lake with easy access means lots of visitors and lots of people who would LOVE to live on it, or rent for a weekend vacation for that matter.  Either way, a lot of traffic up and down the shorelines, often out of towners visiting the popular Montana sites.
My mum, dad and I were driving past a waterfront listing and noticed for one, that the sign was difficult to read, and two, the only information available on the house was a phone number … (2 comments)

sms: "Infolust" and the real estate industry - 06/22/07 11:52 AM
Happy Friday everyone!
I just wanted to share some information with you all that I recently found on Google when doing some information research.
All thanks to the insanely expansive and detailed web of information that continues to be spun, offering transparency of prices, of reviews, of opinions, and of detail. Yes, you’ve heard this before. But just for a moment, marvel at how incredibly addicted consumers have become to getting instant access to any kind of useful and relevant information. In fact, consumers are experiencing nothing short of an all-encompassing INFOLUST:
"Experienced consumers are lusting after detailed information on where to … (1 comments)

sms: Text-message marketing and your sales strategies - 06/19/07 03:32 PM
I have been catching up on realtors take on using text messaging in their business, reading up on some great blogs about how some of them have incorporated it into their everyday business activities.  Many of the responses have been positive, and others a bit weary on how it works and whether or not their potential customers will actually use it. 
However, once a teenagers craze, text-messaging is becoming a useful tool to all ages.  The largest segment of users today ranges from 18-38, and the median age of first time homebuyers is 32!  Also, the older ages are adopting it … (6 comments)
