    SHIFT: Tactic #9 - Create Urgency - Overcoming Buyer Reluctance

    in Real Estate

    In a buyer's market, it should be just that. But that isn't always what happens. The buyers don't actually buy quickly - in fact, many times they sit on the fence and take their time.  Why does this happen?  The great irony of a buyer's market is that even though the opportunity to buy is high, buyer urgency tends to hit an all-time low.  Fear settles in - the fear of paying too much seems to stop most in their tracks and immobilizes them.
    Today, I will talk about how to create urgency in buyers and help overcome their reluctance in a market shift.

  • Is Cold Calling Dead? The Art of Making Phone Calls

    in Business

    Social Selling is in. Cold Calling is out. Or is it?
    So many people can't get past the fear of picking up the receiver and talking to someone they don't know. But if you are not talking to someone, you are not making money.
    In this week's episode, we will explore reasons you may be afraid to call clients, and steps to take to get into action. In sales, there is nothing more important than getting in front of people to build relationships. People buy from people, not social media campaigns.
    Join us as we help you identify what is holding you back, and help you break through to success.

    Understanding the Recent College Demonstrations
    In fall 2015, thousands of college students across the nation organized, protested, and demanded change at their schools. From the hiring of more faculty of color to the teaching of Ethnic and GLBTQ Studies and increasing student programs, students' lists of demands were vast. 
     
    Naysayers and conservative pundits were quick to critique these protests, but too few people took the time to listen and learn from students. As students return to their campuses from winter break, this show brings together student activists, educators, and community members to reflect on students’ demands, the factors fueling their protests, and the possibilities for change.
    Students have long been the ones pushing for educational transformation.These latest demonstrations aren’t isolated incidents or the gripes of so-called "coddled” or “whining” individuals, as some would want us to believe. Instead, students’ demands stem from decades of racism, class inequality, and other forms of exclusion. Now is the time to listen to students’ demands and work together to ensure that our schools serve all of our students.

  • Stop Networking and Start Making Money

    in Business

    I'm talking about "networking." Sure, I've been hearing all about networking for years. I've even used the word myself! But when you get down to it, networking is cold, sterile… And it seems self-serving: one person trying to form a web of contacts whose sole purpose is to do something for him. That's not how I want to do business. . I think of it as "What can we do for each other and each other's communities?" instead of "What can you do for me?" When I focus on these goals, deals follow. And when a deal is made between two people (notice I did not say two businesses) who have connected - as opposed to "networked" - money usually follows. Making a connection does require a bit more "work" than simply shoving your business card at a potential client. But the extra money you can make and the new opportunities you can open up to your community are well worth the extra effort.  
    There was no "Hi, how are you?" Nice to see you again." Or even "How are your children?" It was just the typical "WIIFM" approach
     
    My first thought was - do you really think this kind of behavior is conducive to me wanting to do business with you? But what I said was, "Yes, Sue, I received the email on Thursday. I left for LA (this event) on Monday. I was planning on returning your email later in the week." This is a wonderful example of why many people do not end up with business from networking events. They have not mastered event etiquette.  Nor have they discovered the best way to make lasting connections.
    People who should listen to this show are entrepreneurs, career coaches,
