marketing automation: How Realtors® Can Create Systems for Success - 09/16/15 08:00 AM

None of us have enough time or mental energy to think carefully through every decision we make. Some decisions are worth a lot of thought – like whether or not to invest $1000 into your marketing. Some decisions are not – like whether to wear the red shirt or the blue one. Knowing the difference is a key to success.
You may be thinking that I’m being silly – no one wastes time on what color their shirt should be. (Oh, but we do…) But I’m making a broader point. Having appropriate systems is essential for success. Systems that automate what can be … (2 comments)

marketing automation: Five reasons Realtors® are flocking to Lead Pages - 07/17/15 05:02 AM
Capturing leads online and getting them into your CRM can be a challenge. Often Realtors® are faced with a lot of manual work to make this happen. You have to have some kind of website that encourages people to sign up or schedule an appointment. Then you get a notification, perhaps in email.
