lead generation: The Statistically Proven Effect of Narrative Marketing - 08/06/15 11:46 AM
Check out this new blog post from the iPartnerMedia website authored by my colleague Elizabeth Carlton!

Narratives are one of the most influential and persuasive approaches to marketing. It is all about selling yourself, your business or your product through a story. As years go by, marketing strategies change, yet the impact of this age-old method continues to work across industries large and small.
Why is that?
As humans we think in terms of narratives and metaphors. Professor of Marketing at Stanford University, Jennifer Aaker, disclosed a recent study in a video called Persuasion and the Power of Story where students had to win their class … (4 comments)

lead generation: 4 Reasons Direct Mail is Still a Relevant Marketing Strategy - 05/25/15 10:22 AM
Direct mail marketing gets a bad reputation from real estate professionals and other business services because they have a hard time quantifying the return on investment from the campaign.
Is this the fault of direct mail or is there a deeper problem at hand?
4 Reasons Direct Mail is Still a Relevant Marketing Strategy
First, let's agree on the facts:
1)Going to the mailbox is still a daily event. Rarely do people let mail stack up in their box.
2)The daily ritual of grabbing what's in the mailbox is a treasure hunt that releases endorphins. Many people look forward to their daily delivery.
3)People examine each piece … (12 comments)

lead generation: How LinkedIn Helped Me Land An International Client - 03/28/15 08:18 PM
In baseball, the most successful hitters focus on singles and doubles but every player enjoys a home run.
Recently, our team hit a home run when we landed a website project for arguably the largest supplier of nuclear cabling products in the world.  Instead of a baseball bat, our equipment was the free professional social media platform LinkedIn.
 
Am I surprised? No.
 
As an early adopter of LinkedIn, I have generated hundreds of thousands in revenue from this tool since creating my profile in 2007. Rarely does a day pass that I do not spend at least a … (12 comments)

lead generation: How I Got Another Web Site Client From Facebook - 01/08/14 08:36 PM
Is your web site dusty? 
I have researched hundreds of real estate domains. It is surprising to see how many web sites lack social media integration. In fact most sites look very dated and do not take advantage of the visual display advances that have been introduced in recent years.
A web site is like a car. You need a new one every 5-10 years. You need to put on new tires and change the filters and belts once in a while. Web sites no longer need to cost $10-$15k unless you ask for some serious functionality that requires a lot … (7 comments)

‘Tis the season for holiday email campaigns. When you deck the halls, remember to dress up your email designs with holiday appropriate imagery and messaging. “In 2012, e-tailers sent an average of 210 promotional emails over the holidays, up from 177 a year earlier”, according to Listrak.
Are You Collecting Email Addresses? If not, start now so that you can build a proper list, begin the process of mailing in 2014 and be ready for next year’s holiday season campaign. Why? Because your competitors are coming to town and winning customers away from you. If you are collecting email … (4 comments)

Any fan of the movie Glengarry Glen Ross knows that lead buying in the real estate and mortgage industry is big business. There are thousands of websites designed to capture prospective customer information in hopes that the website operator can sell those leads for a profit. I should know, my company generates thousands of leads per day for a variety of advertisers including debt relief counselors, auto loan companies, payday loan and installment lenders and small business financing companies.
