We all have a few “bad business habits,” when it comes to how we handle our business. My focus is on marketing, and I have no loss in the bad habit category with one very important task!!
I market for two members of The Todaro Team, and we communicate by email and text. It’s usually text they prefer. Of course, I prefer email. Therein lies the problem!!!
The reason for my choice is, with email, I can download and create a folder on my download page for photos and relevant information for each property. With text messages, it just does not work well for me. My OCD won’t allow messages of any kind to remain visible. I begin and end each day with a clean window. I’m the clean slate type of worker.
It’s like cleaning a closet at home or leaving the desk in your office perfectly clean of everything!! At the beginning of every day, I clean that closet and delete everything I’ve read, not thinking about the photos that I did not download!!! So, it’s double the work for whomever sends me photos for “coming soon” posts.
The professional photos are always sent by email via Drop Box, and then I download each photo and place it in a folder with the address. They both know I like everything emailed, so if I delete in error, I can find it in my trash and download.
I continue to preach to them to not even attempt to change that particular bad habit. It cannot be done. I’ve tried, and after two days, DELETED!! It bothered the hell out of me to hang onto those text messages for two days.
Just saying, in case you have someone who also has that bad habit….
