I was worrying a bit at breakfast this morning (before I had my coffee) about not knowing what to write about today.  My oldest daughter asked what I usually put in my blogs, and I told her I try to write about sales.  Being the helpful child that she is, she looked around the room and suggested ...

Yesterday I had lunch with a mortgage broker friend of mine (I had WAY too spicy Thai food, but that's another story...).  My friend was feeling a bit blue because his numbers were down for the quarter.  Now, he's been selling mortgages for 13 years, so he knows sales can be cyclical and not to g...

Pardon me if you're not a football fan, but I heard something this morning on a local sports talk program that I thought really applies to the state of the internet sales lead industry right now. The disc jockeys were talking about what makes a good quarterback, and one of the hosts opined that a...

Greetings, all, It's hard to believe we're almost halfway through January- The New Year is already flying by!  To kick off our 2010 marketing drive, we issued a new press release.  Have you ever used press releases as a communication tool?  We've been very pleased with the responses we've gotten ...
