"I had no idea that sending out a simple card like that would be so powerful?  I must have received around 10 emails saying--Thanks Maria Merry Christmas to you as well!!  And I booked a one hour colour consultation :)
Thanks a lot Dave, loved it!!"

Marketing Tip: Quick Word on Spam

My #1 asked question... How to avoid being spammed...

Here's the catch with email.  If you do it right, email works to grow your business like nothing else out there!  If you do it wrong, people think its spam and people HATE spam.  Hates isn't one of the buying emotions.  So I think its safe to say that you don't want people to HATE your communications.

In order to steer your business away from negative perceptions and towards positive ones, you need to practice Professional Email Marketing, not spam marketing.
  1. Email marketing is delivering professional email communications, representing the characteristics of your business visually (your brand), while delivering information that educates your audience and/or differentiates your business from the competition
  2. Must contain information "they - your readers" find valuable.  The #1 reason for opt-outs is "doesn't keep my attention."
Contact us if you need extra help incorporating Professional Email Marketing  into your business plan.

Meet Greg PearsonThanks eXtra Contact for getting me up & running with my e-newsletter. I've had some great responses.  One of the comments I received from my first e-newsletter included...

"Greg, Glad to see you are still selling Real Estate... I will once again be in need for a Real Estate Agent... I have 2-3 houses that likely will need selling one day... Perhaps I could stop by your office for a chat... I was glad to see your newsletter
