investing: Busy, Busy Blogger - 06/10/08 08:41 AM
Hello, all. With the upcoming launch of Sibdu, I've been very busy blogging at our main blog site: http://blog.sibdu.com .
As always -- well, most of the time, anyways -- we cover topics of interest to commercial and investment real-estate agents and brokers, including sales tips, marketing, technology, etc. Residential agents and brokers can definitely benefit as well. So read one, read all!
Rather than bore you all with reviews of what I've written (or worse yet, repurpose them here, which I wouldn't think would be cool), I thought it would be easiest to provide links back to the blog, so … (0 comments)

investing: When a Call or Voicemail Just Won't Do, Part II - 08/06/07 08:09 AM
In Part I of this article, I explained why handwritten notes are...well...just so darned super. All kidding aside, they really are. Here's Part I. Part II is below:
Here's some quick tips for writing notes:
* Card shops and stationery stores sell supplies for personal notes. You don't need anything overly complex or flowery. Pick a card (or a box of cards) that matches your personality.
* Buy cards that are smaller, but not too small. You're only writing a short personal note, not War and Peace.
* Stay away from cards provided by your company that has the corporate logo on them. A person … (6 comments)

investing: When a Call or Voicemail Just Won't Do, Part I - 08/01/07 06:29 AM
NOTE: This is another in a series of my "Back to the Basics" articles. Part II, which has tips on what to put in these notes, will come later this week.
In our hectic lives nowadays, the easiest form of contact between people is e-mail. Coming close in second is the voicemail message. Third place goes to the simple phone call. And in fourth, but lagging behind, is various forms of the in-person meeting.
All of these communication "channels," if you will, are important. What's more, they're not going away. But one form of communication that has been lost in recent years is the handwritten … (4 comments)

investing: Writing Articles from you Active Rain Blogs - 07/27/07 02:14 AM
In a previous life, I was a journalist -- photographer, reporter, newscast producer, editor, etc. I guess that's why I still like to write. It's in my blood.
I also like to read. And quite frankly, I've read a lot of really, really good content that's being generated by people here on Active Rain. In fact, I think most of it can be re-used and re-purposed to help you build your businesses.
There's a Web site I use called EZineArticles.com. What it does is offers your content to publishers for free. I suggest that anyone here who has done a "how-to" or other type … (11 comments)

investing: First Real Post to This Group - 07/24/07 08:18 AM
Hello, all. As you've seen in the intro post to this group (Adding Value to Your Services), I'd like to discuss more about how real-estate pros can go beyond what "everyone" else is offering, in terms of services, to differentiate themselves from the rest of the crowd. The way I did it when I was in real estate (commercial and residential) was to offer value-added services.
Now that I'm working for a company that offers value-added services to commercial and investment brokerages, brokers, teams and agents, I'm very interested in what others are doing out there. I'm especially interested in how you're using technology … (0 comments)

investing: Follow Up for Success, Part I - 07/24/07 01:59 AM
NOTE: The following is Part 1 of an article I have released for general distribution across the EZineArticles.com network, which accepts articles from people who want to see them republished at no charge to the author. It's a strategy I'm using to build my business; you should consider doing it yourself. But that's not what the article is about -- I'll cover that in a future entry. Here is today's story:
Follow Up for Success, Part I 
Networking and dating can be a lot alike, and yet very different.
In many cases, dating starts out with a crowded room of people who may … (4 comments)
