stacey alcorn: Appreciation - What is your system currently? - 01/27/16 10:32 PM

There...I said it....what many don't like to talk about because they don't have one in 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. … (9 comments)

stacey alcorn: What does it take to build your Real Estate Firm? - 12/18/14 07:03 PM
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.

stacey alcorn: Find out why we are the fastest growing firm in New England - 11/11/14 08:22 PM

Now that the 2014 year is coming to a close, many folks will start sending out Holiday cards and other marketing materials.  Question why now?  And why do you not have a system to consistently send out cards of thanks, appreciation, birthday, anniversary, congrats etc....
Over the years, I have learned that being consistent is a skill and characteristic of the top 20%.  When I hear agents tell me that they want to get started with my system I ask them why now?  The easy answer is I have the money now and it is the right thing to … (3 comments)

Welcome to this edition of The Monday Morning Message...I trust you had a fantastic weekend filled with fun and relaxation.  We all face similar challenges in our lives and we all handle those challenges differently.

That is life and we all go through it. Second, your re-action to what happens to you is 100% within your control. You may not control what happens, but you control what … (3 comments)

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.....
Did you know that less than 1% of all small or medium size businesses do not have an appreciation or follow up system to say thanks for business?  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…..

May you have a warm sense of touch,To give out loving hugs and comforting pats.

stacey alcorn: Boston Invite from Jay McHugh to hear Gary V talk about what is needed to succeed in 2012 - 09/23/11 12:52 AM
Hey Active Rain members,
I'm writing to ask a favor of you!  This past spring I shared at our office meeting how I was absolutely blown away from a keynote speaker I saw at the RE/MAX Convention, Gary Vaynerchuk.  In seven years this 38 year old t-shirt and jean wearing kid, turned his dad's liquor store into a $50+ million online wine business using social networking and gratitude marketing.  He spent less than $55/month on marketing/advertising and he learned that he could build an empire using appreciation marketing, social networking, and great customer service.  HE IS ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING … (0 comments)
