If you are Canadian, on July 1st there will be a new set of email rules that may affect you.
These rules are being set out by the federal government under a new Anti-Spam Legislation and should be taken seriously as penalties can be extreme, ranging into the millions. For a more in depth explanation follow the link below.
Where most of us will be focused is on the section, consent to send email. There are three general requirements for sending email to an electronic address. You need (1) consent, (2) identification information and (3) an unsubscribe mechanism. There are two types of consent – express and implied.
Express consent is having written or some other form of proof, implied can be deemed by the fact that you have sent to an address for years and have included proper identification and a removal option.
Where it gets interesting for people such as real estate agents or other sales professionals, is when someone gives you a business card. Yes… you are allowed to send the person email as long as it relates to their official business capacity. However, if they asked not to be included on any email list, sending to them could open the proverbial can of worms.
One of the safest ways to ensure you are on the right side of the law is to forward an email such as this to your entire email list explaining these current events, include your identification and an unsubscribe option to remove themselves from any future email.
What I do not favor about this type of law is email from computer driven, offshore senders which is often the bigger problem, will not be effected. However there are ways to deal with these senders, one of which I have included in the Post Script.

P.S. Here is a great tool that I have used to handle my spam email for the past couple years. What I like about it is that it generally gets rid of 100% of spam robot delivered email. It has a simple concept, a live person will get an email asking for confirmation, if they are not a live person you don’t get the email. It is truly awesome!

Perpetual Sales Loop is about How to Dramatically Increase Your Online and Offline Sales Using the Principles of Scientific Advertising and Permission Based Marketing
One of the most important things that you can do in your real estate business is to learn how to drive massive amounts of targeted traffic to your websites or hire someone else to drive this traffic for you.
Perpetual Sales Loop <<< —- Follow this Link to Get More Information!
The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) has complied research showing us that over 90% of all people go to Internet when buying or selling real estate. So it should make perfect sense to you that the vast majority of things that you do in your day-to-day real estate business need to be done with the sole purpose of driving traffic to one of your websites.
Because of this, I believe that the person who builds the most systems will get the most leads, sell the most properties and because of this create the most job security.
Job security, now isn’t that a concept in real estate sales?
According to NAR, buyers and sellers move on average every seven years, and 50% of all people who fill out a form on the Internet buy or sell within 18 months, with 15% making a move within 90 days. Therefore when you acquire new sign-ups that are not moving in the short term, it would be very prudent to keep the relationship warm using our long-term Perpetual Sales Loop strategy.
As well, after a person buys or sells a home and is out of the market, that person immediately falls back into the category of a long-term lead. It is critically important that you understand the concept of the Perpetual Sales Loop because it will positively affect your repeat and referral business for the rest of your real estate career.

If you are into video and if not you should be… after all YouTube is the second largest search engine on the planet. I came up with a way that will enable you to create a Teleprompter in a pinch or if you are on a budget. Everyone that owns a Notebook and a Tablet has one, simply lay your tablet on your keyboard and darken the Notebook screen. With the App Teleprompt+ you can scroll the script using your smart phone. http://ProspectingWithVideo.com

Azden Dual Channel UHF Wireless Microphone System
This is a great microphone for any video enthusiast where two wireless livelier mics are needed.
On this short video you will be able to hear the sound quality in its natural format. More specifically what you hear is what was recorded without any sound sweetening. As you will probably agree sound is important and in this case it is pretty good.
Follow the above link for more details.
I was also impressed with the physical quality of the product, a very hard durable plastic and it runs on double A batteries.
Rated a buy!!

Real estate websites and the irresistible offer http://SellingToolz.com - The irresistible offer on your real estate website, when used correctly, will provide you as a website user a great advantage over websites that do not employ these tools on their homepage.
That is if the offer is good and the timing of your irresistible offer appears at the right time, after the buyer looking for a new home or the seller that is looking to put their home up for sale lands on your webpage.
It is said that the average bounce rate happens between 9 – 15 seconds of a website visitor landing on your webpage, so we have set up the Performance webpage to have the irresistible offer appear 10 seconds after the visitor lands on the website.
Pretty, pretty cool!

To Join Our Next Webinar THURSDAY APRIL 11TH – 2:00PM EDT
The most important thing to remember when you implement a new real estate system is that they are to be built in a way that enables measurable repetition of the steps involved.
I say this because you only have so much time in a day, the same by the way as everyone else. And the person with the most finely tuned lead generation systems will inevitably sell the most property.
Join us on or next Real Road Map Webinar where we break into systems and systems management.

Session 5 of the Real RoadMap training series has been posted… the way this webinar series is evolving it will run for a very long-time. I expect there to be 14 to 16 sessions and then a continuing dialogue on what is new, exciting and more importantly what is very useful and needs to be understood to gain full advantage in your marketplace.
The next live Webinar will be Wednesday, March 6th – 2:00PM EST - In Session 6 – Module 13 we will expand into the area of Social Media showing you why so many agents are wasting their time posting on Facebook and Twitter etc… Seriously, when was the last time you visited an agents Fan Page twice?
In this Session, we will show you how to make money with Social Media. Do not miss the March 6th webinar, because one hour after the webinar is over I am going to take a one-week vacation. That means you will not be able to see it live and ask questions, or watch the recording of the 12 Triggers of Social and Network Marketing for a few weeks.
In this Session with the help of your clients and with several new viral marketing strategies, I will show you first hand how to tap into hundreds and even thousands of new potential BRANDED buyers and sellers on each appointment. Growing your list at the speed of a click!
As you can see below we have added the new chapters feature to the Real RoadMap videos, enabling you to speed through to the areas that you want to focus on. This was a cool upgrade to the system; my concern was that it would affect the ability to play video on tablets; fortunately you will continue to enjoy this feature.

Live risky, take chances…
P.S. I am also putting together a new Session on marketing… specifically the very misunderstood area between Direct Response and Institutional Advertising. This is an exciting topic on how to get your target market to immediately understand and react to your subject line or headline, using 10 words or less.
It is said by many marketing experts, that if you cannot describe what you do in one sentence, you are not worth doing business with.
