Providing a Service for Your Customers …otherwise known as Customer Service!   Most of us interact daily with some form of customer service…whether at our doctor’s office, our local market, or online. If we’re lucky, we have a pleasant experience.  And, of course, there are the instances when you want to reach across the counter, through the phone or your screen, and slap them upside the head. (Of course, I am not advocating violence!)Good Customer Service should be as much a part of a business’s mission statement as anything else. And it starts at the top. If you are a one-person company…that means YOU.  DO……remember that good Customer Service means that sometimes you’re not going to get paid for what you do. It might mean encouraging a potential seller to stay where they are for now o...

We have long been known as the place to go when the banks say 'no'. WE ARE THE PLACE TO GO FOR SBA 7(a) LOANS - PERIOD! Real estate-based 7(a) loan rates start as low as Prime +1% to 2.75% with a 25-year amortization. You get a much better deal than ANY local or major bank on the SBA 7(a) product.  SBA 7(a) rates starting at Prime+1.0% PLUS, we guide you through the process, helping you navigate the 7(a) waters  It's simple. You can do this yourself: take the time to get your loan documents together, go to your local bank, hopefully get approved. Navigate the SBA paperwork, navigate the bank approval process, and if denied, start all over somewhere else. You will likely end up with a rate of Prime +2.75% or more IF you get approved and don't go crazy first.Or, have us do the heavy lifti...

I was just reading a Forbes article titled "When is the best time send marketing emails".  A pretty good read actually and a topic in which I never really thought about before.Here are my 'takeaways' from this article and the studies within: Retired individuals are apt to respond and read emails in the early evenings Monday's are considered the most 'open', meaning emails are apt to be opened more on a Monday Friday's are the BEST days for clicks and conversions Saturday's are the WORST days  The best times to send a marketing email is at 2pm or 8pm Tips on having your email opened: enticing subject line, optimize email for mobile, and segmenting your list to specific audiences. Here is the article if interested in reading the whole thing.  Some great tips for those of us that use email...
