At the beginning of the year I made a decision. It was a decision based on our current economic situation. A decision that I was encouraged NOT to make. I'm glad I did though.
That decision was to restructure my packages and prices and include a 10 image package I like to call "mls express", for realtors who want great photos, but don't want to pay much for them.
February and March were busier than the previous year, but April has more than doubled! I've had so many realtors comment on what I've done. They truly appreciate it. I think it's mostly the fact that I've acknowledged that there is trouble with the economy and I've tried in my own way to do something to help them. I want them to succeed, because ultimately, their success is my success.
With this move, I feel like I've become one with them, and we're on the same team. I'm not trying to take them for every last penny. I'm just trying to help them generate more interest in the properties they sell, so they will sell quicker. I provide an honest, valuable service at reasonable prices.
