I love to share great experiences to my real estate and SendOutCards audiences.
Feel free to read and comment.
The real estate market is always changing and with birth of search engines and 3rd party businesses, one must be mindful of where your business and margins will be in the next 5 years ....
I have been watching a compression of profit margins and suggest strongly that a second or third income stream is necessary to sustain your lifestyle going forward.
boston: Appreciation - What is your system currently?
- 01/28/16 06:32 AM
There...I said it....what many don't like to talk about because they don't have one in place...now go build your article Jay.
Recently, I returned from Houston after speaking to a great group of business professionals. The excitement in the room was contagious. Much of the same subjects came up. How do you do it Jay? How do you compete with Google; Zillow; Trulia etc. How do we get started. And many others. Now what does this all mean? If you are not appreciating your clients; your business is doomed to be gobbled up by an on line experience in the future.

boston: What does it take to build your Real Estate Firm?
- 12/19/14 03:03 AM
The New York real estate mogul turned television personality Barbara Corcoran is every bit as succinct and quick on her feet in person as she is on the hit show Shark Tank.
What does it take to build a multimillion-dollar empire? Who better to ask than a women with experience as a bootstrapping entrepreneur and an angel investor who swoops in and saves struggling companies? Here are four lessons for achieving massive success, Shark style, that we learned from our conversation with her at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood, Mass., after her recent appearance at a Greater Boston Real Estate Board event.

- 11/08/14 04:29 AM
There's no better time of year than the approaching holiday season for company owners and agents to roll up their sleeves and spread gratitude to the people who have contributed to the business all year long: the amazing employees who embody the culture, vision and soul of an organization as well as the customers and clients who fuel your business.
Showing appreciation should be a regular year-long practice at any business. But the end of year is a great time to step up the expressions of gratitude and go above and beyond in saying, "I love you!" Here are five simple ways to say

boston: Why Listening and Executing will save your Real Estate business
- 07/15/14 04:11 AM
Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, Oh my! Now entrepreneurs have so many ways to reach out and talk to the world. Entrepreneurship is all about building a platform of loyal advocates who are excited about listening to your message and hopefully buying from you.
That said, the five biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make on social media all come down to one important lesson: You talk too much (at least on social media). Stop talking and start listening and you will turn your use of social media into a lean, mean, money-making, advocate-building, client-relationship machine. Avoid these social media mistakes and build a wider following:

Here on a wonderful Monday afternoon reaching back and saying thanks…thanks for your most recent order….here at SendOutCards….to many of my clients.....

And in the real estate world where it is most necessary folks start and stop; start and stop; start and stop…and they wonder why their business is like a roller coaster regardless of the seasonal ups and downs…..

Over the years I have read nearly 100 books on sales, self improvement, business and throw in a few Boston Mob books...I sponge to learn and recently my message of appreciation marketing has never been clearer....
I see folks who talk a big game fail. I see folks implement my coaching succeed. I see large organinzations pu pu the power of an unexpected card as meaningless. Yet, their agent count has dropped nearly 1550 agents in five years. Conversely, I assisted one company from 6 offices and 70 agents to the powerhouse of 17 offices

boston: The Gratitude Challenge
- 06/19/12 03:56 AM
The Gratitude Challenge is an excellent way to remind oneself of the importance of thanking and appreciating others.
When I speak around the country I am amazed how few agents have an Apprecaition Marketing campaign in place.
They are begging their clients to go elsewhere; they are begging their clients to search Google next time they need something; they are begging their clients for social indifference.
The Gratittuce Challenge introduces you to create a habit of Appreciation.
Take it; practice it; email me questions; let's see how your life and business
