*Pretty Pink Organza Bags for Customers!

I have to admit, these a great find… these bags are 8×12 pink organza bags I **LOVE** to use to package the products my lovely customers buy from me!  You can see through them a little bit, and, there is a pull tie so you can cinch the bag closed.  I found these on Amazon for $12.99!  Aren’t they great???

I was a little concerned before I ordered them for the first time since I didn’t have experience with this merchant – I didn’t know if the bags were made well, the last thing I wanted was bad sewing, or, a cheap, yucky look.  I was very pleasantly surprised and love them!

You can find KUPOO Pack of 50 pcs 8×12 inch Organze Drawstring Gift Bag Pouch Wrap on Amazon! (IMAGINE THAT!!! 😉 )

If you try them, let me know what you think!!!

*Why I Use GetResponse

Everybody KNOWS that building an email list is VITAL to building a business!  I know, we all get so many emails, bla bla bla, BUT statistics don’t lie!  HOWEVER, don’t take it from me, do some research on how email marketing works for YOUR market.  One size never fits all – email marketing works for some, not others.  This post is not about whether or not you should use email marketing, it is assuming you will be using email marketing!  After that assumption, I am here to share a tool you will absolutely LOVE!

I just *LOVE* GetResponse.com – “All-in-one Online Marketing Platform to Grow Your Business”

What does that mean exactly?  Here are some of the things GetResponse.com can do:
-compose & send emails on demand OR through an autoresponder
-split tests
-squeeze pages
-email analytics & statistics

GetResponse.com even has an arsenal of video tutorials to help you realize all it can do AND how to use the platform!

What do you need to do in order to sign up?  Well, if you click through this link, you will get a free trial AND $30 off should you decide to become a paying customer.

BUT, let’s not stop there… in order to know the value which GetResponse.com offers, we have to be SURE you know what email marketing is all about, let’s chat about lead magnets.  Have you heard of a lead magnet?  Our friends over at Grow the Rabbit created this nice graphic (you should ALSO check them out for more info about email marketing)!  A lead magnet is the proverbial carrot which you strategically place in front of your audience, that carrot entices them to visit a squeeze page (as example, “for more information, visit www.whatever.com”).  On the squeeze page you are GIVING your audience even MORE value!  Don’t skimp, go all out – remember, you want to create RAVING FANS!  Next comes the fun part.  If you have gone all out, given great value, and, your reader is still loving you, wanting more – give them MORE – with a catch!  The catch is, they have to register to receive it!  So… on your squeeze page (which you created with GetResponse.com), you have a form which asks for their name and email!  With a tool like GetResponse.com, your RAVING FANS will give you their names and emails in exchange for the carrot, aka lead magnet.  Then, like magic, you can have your GetResponse.com platform deliver an email to them automatically (autoresponder) and you don’t have to lift a finger.  In the magic email is the information your RAVING FANS were asking for.  NOW, you have them!  Your list is one larger!!  Use your list WITH RESPECT (do NOT spam, only INDULGE your readers with VALUE).

Once you develop great ads, great squeeze pages, and, a great list of RAVING FANS, you have cracked the code!  Your approaches will be less “cold calling” (online ads to new viewers) and more warm market (members of your email list – RAVING FANS)!

What questions to you have?

Real estate TRANSACTION COORDINATION services – what I can do for YOU!

Are you a Realtor who is overworked, wondering how you are going to hold it together to get it all done so you SUPREMELY support your clients during their most important purchase or sale of home?

What can I do for you? Here are some common items…

Contract to Close (for buyers)
-write up purchase agreements (Virginia only)
-verify all documents are received and complete
-submit ratified contract to all parties
-schedule inspections
-verify inspections
-manage addenda and supporting documents
-schedule repairs
-schedule settlement
-ongoing communications with all parties
-verify contingencies
-ongoing negotiations through settlement

Listing Management (for sellers)
-schedule photos/video/staging and any other service providers (maid service, handy man, lawn care etc…)
-enter listing into the MLS (depending on your location and jurisdictional rules)
-prepare marketing materials
-schedule open houses/market to buyer agents
-contract to close items from list above (which may apply to sellers)

For purchase and listing transactions…
Most Realtors also have some customized processes which I manage as well. This may consist of sending client touch emails to set and maintain education & expectations, moving clients from one marketing program to another as they move through the pipeline, ordering of settlement gifts, etc… These are added touches which create that great experience for the client. When managing contract to close for a buyer client, I can assume all your behind the scenes tasks so you can be assisting your clients directly.

How much does this cost?

Whether a purchase or a listing transaction, usually $300-$500… often even less.  The nice part is, we will chat, discover how I can best support you, and, I will offer you a professional proposal, in writing AND once we get that out of the way, you don’t have to pay me until you close!  That means no out of pocket expences for you!!

Another note – to help keep everything straight and EASILY available to you, service providers, clients, and, all necessary parties, I use a really awesome transaction management software application which really does a great job of helping me keep everything organized for you!  

So, if you would like to stop burning your candle at both ends, get in touch with me – I will help you.

Call/text or email NOW – don’t put it off until things fall apart or you lose your mind! 🙂
