Learn from Other Agents to "Profit From Technology"

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Kate Writes Right

You can profit from this book.  So don't waste any time!  This is a LIMITED TIME OFFER!!!

(I'll tell you about the limited aspect of this offer later in this post.)

Really, I know that sounds like a "come on".  You have been in this business.  You've seen all the scams and schemes being used to sell something to real estate agents.

If I can convince you that this offer is legitimate, would you be willing to spend $19.95 to learn from nine of your fellow agents?  These agents are sharing - no holds barred - what they have learned about technology and they want you to have the information.

Author picsWhat information you ask?

Reintroduce yourself to some of your Active Rain colleagues as I tell you what they have written for you.

I will briefly tell you about each expertly written chapter - just to give you a glimpse of how groundbreaking this book can be to you and your career. 

Have you ever seen another book where other agents took the time to share what they know so you can prosper?

You may already know you want the book.  If so, go to the order page here.  There is no reason to delay.

An uncommon treasure trove of information is what you will find here.  It is like having some of your favorite people sitting beside you and helping you undersand what needs to be done to take your business up to the next level.

Let me begin introducing each individual author from the upper left side and circle round the perimeter of the group and end with a little about my chapter.  (I'm in the center.)  You will find more information about each chapter in the blog of the individual author.

Missy Caulk - If you have been attempting to sort out the advantages of different marketing approaches on your website...sit down with Missy as she downloads a wealth of experience into her chapter, "Time vs Money (Organic Searches vs Pay per Click)".  This is not just a clever title or a quick teaser.  You will find a complete analysis of the pros and cons of the two approaches to being found on the internet - instead of being buried like a "needle in a haystack" on the world wide web.

Colleen Fischesser - If you were thinking that this book may be "too elementary my dear" - I want to assure you that you will learn a thing or two from Colleen.  This veteran agent and prolific blogger teaches you how to "Become the Master of Your Own Domain."  She compares template websites to a fully customized site.  She invites us to accompany her in her evolution in becoming a webmaster and gives us the truth about the challenges...even some of the mistakes she has made along the way.  Don't miss her 5 Essential Steps in building your own website.  Miss one step on this list and you will get more frustration than success.

Brian Block - He counts himself lucky to be the only man among eight brilliant women in this book.  His chapter helps us move "Towards 100% Online Lead Generation."  He explores specific strategies to move your business in the same direction as today's client - online!  In a time where 87% of the potential buyers spend months on the internet before contacting an agent, he gives us great timely tips that will hep us to take control over lead generation. Learn exactly how to gain the trust of these "agent-phobic" clients...make more profit...and have fun doing it.

Carol Smith - If you feel like giving up saying that you are too far behind to even try, you need to read Carol's chapter,  "Technology: Nemesis or Redeemer?".  She gives you a gentle nudge to break down the barriers that are holding you back and "take the plunge" into the internet.  With her advice, you will step with confidence into the world of our internet-enabled clients and truly profit from it.

Joeann Fossland - All these tech-tools can be wonderful!  But they can actually be an impediment to creating profit in your business if you cannot control the time you spend on using those tools.  Joeann, a renown and intuitive real estate coach, brings us face-to-face with the reality of time management.  This chapter alone will be worth the price of the book.  "How to Avoid Burn Out or Addiction" has 10 effective methods for lowering the risk of complete overload.

Sarah Reiter - You may understand the value of all these technological advances...but how do you get it all done???  The answer might be a REVA.  Sarah's chapter, "Virtual Assistants - The Future of Real Estate Support" lists 7 primary areas where a REVA can assist in your marketing.  She also gives us 6 reasons why a virtual assistant may be better than having an on-site assistant.  Perhaps the most valuable part of her chapter is where she gives specific, step-by-step instruction about how to hire a REVA. 

Natalie Langford - The old adage "List to Last" in real estate has a whole new meaning when you are expected to be everywhere and do everything for today's sellers.  They know that the buyers are on the internet and they want to be assured that their listing has a prominent place on the web too.  Her chapter, "Using Internet Tools to Serve the Seller" is a vital resource for you to use in meeting the expectations of sellers.  Use her checklists for the 8 essential areas for superior online marketing presence.  She offers one list of resources after another in this chapter to make it easy for you to see where you are and learn new ways to sell more homes with the internet.

3d cover

Celeste "Sally" Cheeseman - In an upbeat and positive way that can only be offered by this Active Rainer, Sally shares her personal journey into blogging.  Her chapter helps us to see "Through the Eyes of a Real Estate Industry Social Media Blogger."  Beginning in early 2007, she has been a consistent, reliable source of that "Aloha" spirit and has attracted hundreds of fans from around the world.  She invites us to use her 9 bottom-line points of advice...calling it "It all boils down to this."  You can't miss this charming, personal and interesting chapter.

Kathi Frank - That's me!  I readily admit at the very beginning of this book, "I am, without a doubt, the most technologically inept person involved in this book."  However, I am hyper-aware of the changing expectations of the internet-enabled client.  In my chapter, I try to help you "Speak the Language of Today's Internet-Enabled Client".  All the tools and techniques will fail you if you speak to the clients in the same way you have been taught in the past - with scripts and dialogues that sort and qualify prospects in a way that is aggessive and outdated.

Now - The LIMITED OFFER!!!

 The first printing of the books have been ordered and will soon be available in print.  You have the opportunity to get an advanced digital download of the entire 140 page book.  Right NOW! AT NO COST TO YOU!  This exclusive offer is only good until June 30, 2009. 

After that date, you will pay $12.95 for the digital book PLUS $19.95 for the printed book.

 You simply do not want to miss this amazing opportunity!  Technology is literally changing the future of our business.  Whether you are a novice, or a tech-expert in your own right, this book will help you take total control over your real estate business by exploring every facet of what needs to be done.

You know?  211 degrees is pretty darn hot!  But at 212, it is boiling and making steam!!!  Only one degree, but there is quite a difference.  While hot water is nice for taking a shower, boiling water has more potential.  You can use it to cook, or to run a steam engine.

I bet you are wondering why I am making this point.  The point is - one degree makes a huge difference...just one.  Take a look at your business right now.  Are you getting all the profit you want out of your business?  Do you have efficiencies in place that allow you to enjoy that profit?

No matter how good you are at technology - or how happy you are with your business - there is always room for that extra degree.  That one degree that takes your business from hot to steaming!!

There is absolutely no doubt that you will get one great idea from this book that will make you $$THOUSANDS$$.  You can get the book today in digital form.  In about 4-6 weeks, you will get the printed book.  All for the price of the printed book alone. 

Imagine what it will be like to have the book on your computer as a resource when you have a question.  With the click of your mouse, you can bring up the chapter that covers your question in an instant...NOW!  Then, soon you will be able to carry the book around with you - making notes in the margins and highlighting the passages that you plan to implement into your business.

Show your appreciation to your favorite blogger by ordering the book from their sales page below:

This sounds like a great resource or information and knowledge -- thanks to our peers for being willing to share this knowledge. My business would be dead in the water without technology. I just started my own blog and am looking for advice on how to drive traffic to the site and also get clients through it. I am going to order my digital copy today and look forward to reading it and sharing it with other Realtors on my team.


Will this be available at libraries? What has to be done to make that happen?

Hello Scott - the download of the entire book IS FREE!!!  I really don't know what problems you may be having.  I tried to send an email directly, but could not find you in AR.  So, if you are unable to resolve the issue of the download, please tell me the particulars about your order in an email to: Kathi@KathiFrank.com.  It will take a little time to do the verification with the publisher, but I will make certain that you get your digital book.  Your questions may be answered in the Frequently Asked Questions.  Let me know if I need to step in and get your copy to you directly.

Georgina - Thanks for your encouraging words.  I can tell you that I am still trying to learn everything that my co-authors shared in their chapters.

Dee Dee - I hope you do check it out and let me know what you think.

Marian - We do have two independant reviews on the sales page.  But that is all for right now.  Since the book was launched yesterday morning, we still have a lot of work to do to get all the marketing in place.  We do have the book available on www.Amazon.com.  And, of course, reviews will be a part of those book sales.  However, you will only be able to get both the digital and printed version with this specific promotional sales page.  You will only get the printed version on Amazon.

Eric - Thanks so much for your purchase.  I hope you make loads of money from implementing the ideas you get from the book.  Let me know.

Lizette - I hope you find the book is valuable to both your trainee AND to the more seasoned agents you know.  Please spread the word.

Dana - The world of Active Rain is not about "secrets".  It is about sharing and this book simply takes that type of spirit and puts it into a personal talk (via book) with 9 Rainers who want you to succeed.

Rockville Realtor - First, thanks for the referral to the SEO book.  Second, I am confident you will get lots of good information from this book.  It is not a "techie" book in the way that most are on the bookshelves...and I think that is a good thing.  I hope you enjoy it.

Terry - We could handle 146,000 books.  It could change the lives of a whole lot of people and that is good.  I hope you like it.

Lelis - Thanks for purchasing the book.  Let me know what specific things you will be implementing into your business.

Lynn - Missy's chapter should be a great help to you in the "driving traffic" goal.  As far as the libraries, I hope to get that done with time.  First, we need to get all our distribution channels open and get it into our local boards of Realtors and into the real estate schools.  It is a lot to do - and remember, we are all real estate agents making a living representing buyers and sellers.  We have to work this in between clients.

Bill - Thanks so much!  Chicago Title has always been my favorite.  Maybe I need to talk to someone hear about becoming involved with the book as well.

Hello Pat and Wayne - I hope you are going to find a wealth of information in this book.  It is because we have a passion for helping our fellow agents that we wrote it.  We want you to do well because of what you learn here.

Hi,

This LOOKS like a book I can use. I'll let you know my REAL opinion as to it's usefulness,application to real world real estate issues after I read it. Just downloaded it. I really hope it's material I can use...sometimes I feel as if everyone else has a big secret that I don't. I am going be more active on Active Rain and begin to use its resources. Presently I have no website and surely can't afford the whiz bang sites that are costly. Hopefully I can use the book to decide how best to get a website that reflects the current real estate market in our area. I'd like to have potential clients visit/use the site without the fear of being bombarded with unwanted real estate follow up until it's requested. When I visit a site I want to be able to explore it without having to leave my life history on it. If I want information I'd like to be able to request it and look forward to receiving it in a manner that encourages me to return to the site. Numerousyu7 sites bombard you with everything its owner ever knew and as you migrate from one to the other you come away with  hazy ideas about real estate and grand promises. Many people just drift from site to site, eventually say what the heck, agents are all the same,click the button and after 30 sec. move on. When they tire of this they just give in and call a local Realtor. It's amazing to me that at that point they ask about a property but seldom the website. To me, an effective website should encourage the call or invite discussion with the person ON the site in a live chat method which is secure. Trust is hard to come by in the market these days.      Thanks for the effort and collaboration it took to put the book together....yikes! That in itself is amazing!   Best of luck!

Good evening Roland - I hope you know how much we appreciate the confidence you have shown in purchasing this book from us.  I hope you get lots of valuable information from it.

Mike - I think it is an incredible resource...particularly in this special offer time.  Many are really enjoying the ability to click on the links in the chapters - there are a ton of them.  So it is an easy resource in digital form - plus - the printed book.  A great value!

Rolland - My publisher says that we will get it in Kindle format.  Can't predict the timing right now because we are busy filling orders and responding to people who want us to be on special programs, etc.  We hope it will be everywhere soon.

Thanks Valerie - I know I am prejudiced, but I think the book has something for everyone.  I hope you find great value in it.  Let me know what you think.

Babs - You have some great ideas.  Hopefully this book will help you implement some of them.  If you find that they work, you may want to be in the "next" book.

Debra - You may not believe this, but I am a non-techie person.  Anything that has to do with computers is very hard to get through my thick (and somewhat older) head.  They say that those under 35 are "Internet Natives" and people like me are "Internet Immigrants".  I definitely feel that I am in a foriegn land at times...but I keep exploring and am doing better every day.

This book has something for the novice AND those that are further down that road...and that is on purpose.  We designed the book to get 9 different perspectives on how technology affects our business and recruited some of the best to share what they know.  Let me know if you agree.
