Build Niche Real Estate Website - Cheetah Site Builder  The riches are in the niches, but if you can't build what you need to dominate that niche you are helpless.  I have been using niche websites for almost 15 years, starting with community websites.  I first had to buy sites done for me.  I then used a company that built them, I got the leads, they owned the sites.  I learned Wordpress and built some but ended up having multiple hosting accounts leading to lots of confusion... Cheetah Site Builder About 2 years ago I started using this product.  It is a complete set of online tools at a very low cost.  I have built over 170 sites using their Pixel Perfect site builder, but they recently released their Cheetah site builder, which is better than Pixel Perfect.   Check out this quick vi...

by Dave McGhee When coaching and the emigrant mindset meet, great things can happen. What is the emigrant mindset? In Brian Buffini’s new book, “The Emigrant Edge,” he outlines the seven traits shared by emigrants who have achieved success in America. Despite being at a disadvantage, such as not understanding the culture and not having established relationships, emigrants are eager to learn, have a “do whatever it takes” mindset, are willing to outwork others, are thankful for what they have, are bold in their investment of time, money and energy; are disciplined to delay gratification and always remember where they came from. One of our O2O members fits this description: his name is Raymond Ong.Ray is an unassuming man with a successful business. Ask Ray to share his story and he’ll te...

A water pump is a device used to increase the water pressure to shift it from one point to another. Modern water pumps are used across the world to provide water for urban, commercial, agriculture, and residential use. Water generators are also used to transfer pollutants in wastewater treatment plants. Current water pumps are most commonly operated by electricity, although other fuel sources are often used, such as diesel or petrol engines. In certain inaccessible locations, like desert regions, solar panels may be used to provide power to small pumps.Read below to find different uses of garden pumps: 1. Heating and Hot WaterIt might be shocking, but a large proportion of heating systems depend heavily on water pumps. Many radiators have rotating pumps to transfer hot water through the...

Cost-conscious consumers sometimes find out too late that trying to save money on an inspection can result in an inadequate report. More often homebuyers find that the advertised fees for home inspections don't always include things like basement apartments and woodstoves.What is upselling?Upselling is a sales technique where a seller induces the customer to purchase more expensive items, upgrades or other add-ons in an attempt to make a more profitable sale. A different technique is cross-selling in which a seller tries to sell something else. In practice, businesses usually combine upselling and cross-selling to maximize profit.Upselling professional services?I don't think up-selling is very good business. Pushing products or services on customers when they don't need, weren't told ab...

There is much discussion about what, we, in real estate, refer to, as curb appeal, but, very little, detail, or reasons, as to why, this is such an essential consideration, in terms of, precisely, how important, and why, this is so! We need to carefully examine, and review, what potential, qualified buyers, see, from the CURB, in order to use, this concept, to the homeowner's best avail! Although, this is important and essential, I have come, to realize, in my, well over a decade, as a Real Estate Licensed Salesperson, in the State of New York, far too often, this key consideration, is, either, overlooked, and/ or, neglected. With that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means and represents, and ...

 YouTube Thursdays - Heart Hooks  Our best buddy McKinley, aka Mac, was a great conversation starter. He literally opened doors for us both personally, and professionally. And while the Nature As Neighbors brand is based on our passion for nature and soothing environments, Mac added a special touch to our marketing.  Our video series featuring Mac were always a favorite with viewers. He was a scene stealer, and quite honestly, that's what gave me (Debb) more confidence on camera. I figured everybody's eyes were going to be on him, not me.  Mac warmed hearts and built goodwill. We encourage you to find a similar heart-hook for your brand. Sure being the local expert and having expertise is important, but people like the human side of us too. Find something that allows you to stay true to...

Four years ago I mapped out a mobile experience based on years of having up to 40 agents working for my brokerage firm that were constantly mobile, almost never in the office and always complaining about not getting enough leads.Mirroring the two most popular mobile apps – Tinder and Uber – I created an experience that when my agents were working, they could just “swipe right” to indicate their availability. And when consumers were searching in my local market, on my brokerage website -- or my app, they had an immediate response, telling them my agents were available and ready to engage at that exact moment. I called it Cnipit, as in snipping your website. Developed as an enterprise solution, it’s now available to anyone for free for the first month with no setup costs… and incredibly, ...

Turks are excited, master picnickers with tourism is Haqqi Tours — there are a great many piknik yeri (excursion grounds) specked everywhere throughout the nation. Some riverside cookout zones even have tables and seats planted in the shallows so individuals can eat while dangling their feet in the water.The typical arrangement of assault is for a few families to choose who will bring what. Normal cookout nourishments are bread, cheddar, nuts, stuffed vegetables and various meats, either cool cuts or pieces prepared for flame broiling on a chimney or a compact mangal (barbecue). Kuru köfte (dry meatballs) are famous in light of the fact that they are sufficiently firm to travel well in the hamper. The köfte are blended and moved at home at that point singed in olive oil nearby. Foods gr...

Data Storage for Landlords and Property OwnersAs a landlord and an owner of a small Atlanta property management company, I have to deal with many different responsibilities. One of them is making sure that our data is safe, backed up, easily available in case of an emergency, and most importantly easily accessible by our team. It is crucial for us to keep the data for our tenant, property owners, vendors and suppliers safe and secure.To ensure that our data is secure, I have been mainly using one application, Dropbox, for years. I have paid for extended version history (a $39 per year upgrade), had the unlimited data account and generally was happy with my decision. A couple of months ago, all of our data got erased from Dropbox (accident on our part) however, I was under a full impress...
