I am new to Active Rain and this is my first post

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Send Out Cards

Hello, my name is Jeff Packard. I am a brand new member to active rain referred by Mike Jones 'Mike in Tucson'

Mike and I have been in a local networking group together in Tucson AZ.

My back ground is working with Tom Hopkins. I used to travel with him, sell his seminars, and his products. It was a great experience. Not only did I learn sales skills it taught me that the only way to truly get ahead was to own my own business. Through a bunch of hills and valley with ventures, Send Out Cards finally found us. (my family) and it has been a blessing ever since.

Just some value to share:

Each month we don't communicate with our client we lose 10% of our influence with them

Simply saying thank you will increase your business by 17%

Most people give up after the first attempt thus 80% of all sales are made after the 5th attempt.

I am looking forward to being more of an active member on ActiveRain.

Thank you,

Jeff P.

I use Send out Cards to follow up with my prospects and Clients it is easy to do direct from my computer. A really card in the mail make an impression and many times I send brownies or Almonds with the card.
