business tips: The Even Bigger Losers!!!! - 03/16/11 05:29 PM
You will be amazed to learn the number of salespeople who do not follow up. They get a lead, send one e-mail or make one call and then report that the prospect didn't get back to them. Some will try again, but after the second attempt they give up. People are busy and they may not necessarily need your service this minute, but you need to be in their eyes when they need you. Don't be a pest, but be persistent and provide valuable information they can use as means to stay in front of them so they remember you. Many … (9 comments)

business tips: What would you call it? frustration? - 02/04/11 05:13 PM
I am working with a friend for almost two years to find him a house. I gave up on him a couple of times due to his penny-pinching nature but his wife always pushed him to buy a house and I had no options but to keep looking for their dream house. Recently I found a newer and beautiful Victorian style colonial REO property for a price $100K less than they were looking for. The offered bank $20,000 below the asking price. Bank countered that with $5,000 over the offer. The Buyer refused to pay $5,000 and preferred to walk out of the deal.

business tips: What, A Reverse Offer? - 02/03/11 11:19 AM
