staging: Are you ‘Afraid’ to sell your home staging services? - 10/26/11 06:26 AM
People work too hard at selling their services vs. selling themselves these days. It seems that none of us are having fun any longer and unless your client can have some kind of fun they don’t really want to participate. And, if you can’t get them to say ‘yes’ to your home staging services, pretty soon, it won’t be fun for you either. The problem? You don’t want to fully commit, but that is what it takes…full commitment. Let me give you an example: Each year Chick filet; the chain that runs a funny tongue in cheek campaign with cows advertising … (1 comments)

Today, it is completely different and you must take action in order to sell within a reasonable number of days --the … (2 comments)

staging: Success loves persistence - 12/14/10 05:06 AM
"The thing about success, is it doesn't always come when called...but it always comes given sufficient persistence, at something where success is, in fact, possible..."This is a quote from one of the greatest marketing minds I know...Dan Kennedy. Today, I read a fax blast that he sent where he was talking about cart horse racing which is one of his favorite activities. He went on to talk about how his racing year had not been stellar but that he kept with it, working hard all year, and now in the past month, he has had back to back to back grand … (0 comments)
