What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-March 31 to April 6, 2019

 

I learn something new every day at ActiveRain! With this series, I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that lightbulb moment. It could be something techie, something about Real Estate or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!

 

john henryMarch 31: John Henry Power of a Sign, Puffing, and other marketing thoughts.

What are your thoughts on this? Are signs working for you? John, as Michael Jacobs would say, ponders on the subjects.

 

gayle rich boxmanApril 1: Gayle Rich-Boxman    Are You Investing In Your Greatest Commodity? Yourself?

A must read for every agent, especially the A-types!!!  The post is spot on and be sure to read the comments.

 

ron and alexandra seigelApril 2: Ron and Alexandra Seigel Branding Moments: Give Your Clients a License to Chill

This is the kind of marketing that we can all apply to what we do. For Staging, for example, I let my clients know that what I recommend are theirs to choose to do or not. You should see the look of relief on their faces.

 

 

barbara todaroApril 3: Barbara Todaro Maximum Production By Using a Marketing Agent|Best Use Of Your Time

Marketing these days is a full-time job and let's face it, the one you have as an agent is already full-time enough.

 

sally and david hansonSally K and David L Hanson Be ProActive When You List Your Home for a Smooooother Transaction

Sally and David make an excellent point here. Getting that listing signed doesn't mean you're done!

 

 

elizabeth WeintraubApril 4: Elizabeth Weintraub Why Are ADT Home Security Guys Scamming Realtors?

It seems like other agents have felt scammed as well. But Elizabeth takes action!

 

mike cooperMike Cooper Up a Power Pole without an Elevator

Mike offers a great analogy as well as a happy-ending story.

 

 

denise copelandApril 5: Denise Copeland Listing Drama Resolution

Everyone can relate to this and you don't have to be an agent. Denise suggests the perfect way to handle these moments.

 

trisha bush-leforeApril 6: Trisha Bush-LeFore It's An Honor To Be Your Daughter

What a beautiful post to honor her parents! Read this if you want your heart to smile.

 

marte cliffMarte Cliff Are Real Estate Commissions Fair?

Often some of the best posts cause us to begin informative discussions. What do you think??

 

 

 




Don’t forget to check out Carol Williams  Second Chance Saturday posts as well.  I always find a post or two that I missed.

OMG Kathy, I thought I could just pop in and see what you had picked and comment on within the limited time I have at the moment. All of these command a later return, it'll take me atleast an hour to peruse and comment on all of them. The scrutiny will have to be much later now but thank you!

Kathy!!! OMG, had no idea! Thank you, darlin', I'm honored.

Well, I took my own advice and spent the weekend "off the grid" so-to-speak, with a group of girlfriends who've been together for 25+ years. It was so easy, no drama, completely accepting and at the beach! Doesn't get any better.
