"30 Second Commercial?" Mine is Only 3 Seconds…And It Always Works!

Stop WatchTwo Time WatchYou know how it goes. You are at a networking event or business association meeting, and it's that time when everyone gets to introduce themselves. The leader says, "Give us your name, company, and a little about what you do…and keep it short!" People get up and some drone on and on, others barely whisper their name and stammer through a description.

When my turn comes, I say my piece in three seconds flat and sit down while they are still laughing and applauding.

"Margaret Rome. Sell Your Home with Margaret Rome."

 Works every time, people remember, and yes, I do get business from it!

Pat, Glad you showed some of my homes. Would you like to say? "Pat sold a home with Margaret Rome.

Missy, Yours should be fun. " Walk the walk, Talk the Talk.... with the one and only  Missy Caulk" (graphic could be a walker with a phone...but of course.)

Sharon...so how much income could this produce?...forget it..this is fun.

Linda, He is even better than his good  name.

I want to say Thank You, Margaret! I had the pleasure of having you as an Instructor for a GRI Class earlier this year and a guest speaker for another last week. I was surprised to have someone of your maturity teaching a class about Technology and could not have been more pleased by what I learned. You have the knowledge combined with the experience and packaged with a delivery style that makes a lasting impact. I appreciate people who teach for the love of the craft and the generosity of sharing to help others. Especially when, so often, you must endure the self-serving platitudes of people who want to wander down memory lane and regale their former achievements or are looking to drum up business. I have been working on applying what I learned from your class to my business. I just LOVE 1st Time Home Buyers and will be adding the Senior Real Estate Specialist designation to my arsenal of education soon as well. I gravitate towards those who could easily be taken advantage of and desire to protect them. I am 1st and foremost an Educator of the Home Buying Process, then I act as a Consultant to guide them along the Road to Home Ownership, all while I wear my REALTOR hat and help them to achieve their Dream of Home Ownership.

For your new home, call Kim Jones! I learned from the best!!!

Sally, I can just see a chunk of cheese with wheels, or a suitcase or a moving truck. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Kim, Thank you for the "paycheck"! I work for "thank you" notes. Your GRI class was one of the best, so much interest, so many good questions and so appreciative. I invited about 30 people from your group to join Active Rain. You are very special to take time to share these good words with me. I left you a message and hope to speak with you soon.

Margaret... short sweet and to the point!  Based on some of the comments, you must have been using this for a while and apparently it is noticed!  That is what matters and makes it good!  When you are remembered!

Margaret - I have a feeling that it's not just what you say, but how you say it.  Yes, you have a great tagline, but you also come across as intelligent, caring, and knowledgable.  People can sense that in three seconds.

I am glad that she made it. I was in NJ for the Triple Play Convention. I will look for classes in the future, as I would love to get greater use out of my phone. Happy Home Selling, Margaret Rome!
