New Canada Anti Spam Rules That Will Affect You

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.

CRTC

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.

 

Because change in necessary,

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!

Real Estate Bloggging should be just one of your real estate website

strategies used for lead generation and lead

Real Estate Websitesconversion...

Whether you are a non blogger or non article writer or perhaps you are just considering blogging, even if you are a master article writer… this is meant for you!

 

Your Real Estate Blog should be just one of the websites that you have in your suite of web pages, the entire suite is designed for prospecting and keeping in contact people at different times and for different reasons during the buying and selling cycle.

Many non article writers that I speak to think that blogging is too much work. Before the sound of the words real estate blogging has stopped resonating throughout the room they have lost interest.

That’s unfortunate because there are so many great benefits for the real estate agent that is willing to spend a small amount of time posting articles that are worthy of consideration with regard to enhancing your sales. I will cover several good reasons for here in this series of short articles.

The definition of a blog is

Informal Full name: weblog a journal written online and accessible to users of the internet.

The best way to look at blogging is that it is a website that you can change with a few simple clicks of a mouse to add or remove whatever content you want. You get to do this when you want and you are able to add copy, photos or video.

So unlike any other website that you have, you will be able to gain maximum control over the look and the feel and you will gain the flexibility to make it an extension of yourself, shaping the way you want you and your business to be perceived.

The Ability to Shape Your Reputation

 

Shaping your reputation is one of the more valuable of reasons to post information on your own Blog.

Because Blog information is dynamic and not static, meaning that it is always changing, you gain the ability to capture and hold your visitors attention. Your personal real estate website, once you have it set up it pretty much stays the same. Plus your personal website unlike your Blog should be set up as a sales pitch and lead generation site whereas your blog should be used for other purposes.

If you want to be the provider of news, this is the tool. If you want your Blog to be an expression of your personality or if you want to shape and influence the way you want your buyers and sellers to see you in your marketplace you have to consider Blogging as the most effective and cost efficient way to achieve this.

The tip that I will pass along is to get your blog post to take the form of value offered. What I mean is that you will do more harm than good if you try to make you blog posts a sales pitch. Write your articles as a news or articles of interest… and you might just get your buyers and sellers coming back to read more.

News comes from everywhere, your local real estate board, search engines such as Google, television, magazines, other Blogs and the best place of all, your personal opinions… You can even get fellow Real Estate Professionala or even your clients to write articles for you. If you do not consider yourself the newsworthy type, create a Blog that is an extension of your personality, are you funny, political, outrageous? Do you like kids, sports, family? Tell funny stories about some of your sales adventures… get the picture?

When writing your articles remember that people love to buy but they hate to be sold! So make your Blog the area that people can look at to either learn, laugh or listen just don’t make it a sales pitch page. That is for your real estate website, your blog should be 95% content far removed from being a sales pitch. The 5% that is sales should only refer to you at the bottom of the post in the form of a signature and links your visitors to your website.
