What to do AFTER the storm has passed:

From the official website of the Department of Homeland Security 01/23/2016

Hello Maryland, now that “Jonas” #Blizzardof2016 has passed, here are a few tips on what to do next.

After Winter Storms And Extreme Cold

  • If your home loses power or heat for more than a few hours or if you do not have adequate supplies to stay warm in your home overnight, you may want to go to a designated public shelter if you can get there safely. TextSHELTER + your ZIP code to 43362 (4FEMA) to find the nearest shelter in your area (e.g., SHELTER20472)
  • Bring any personal items that you would need to spend the night (such as toiletries, medicines). Take precautions when traveling to the shelter. Dress warmly in layers, wear boots, mittens, and a hat.
  • Continue to protect yourself from frostbite and hypothermia by wearing warm, loose-fitting, lightweight clothing in several layers. Stay indoors, if possible.


Learn From Every Storm

Restock your emergency supplies to be ready in case another storm hits.

  • Assess how well your supplies and family plan worked. What could you have done better?
  • Take a few minutes to improve your family plan and supplies before the next winter storm hits.
  • Talk to your neighbors and colleagues about their experiences and share tips with each other.

Choosing the Best Real Estate CRM

Posted by JohnnyMorrow on June 26, 2014 at 3:20 PM Comments comments (0)

 

Whether you’re a new Realtor who’s looking for a way to manage all your new contacts, or a seasoned vet who’s fed up with your current system, having a good customer relationship management (CRM) solution is crucial in today’s market. Here are a few tips for sifting through all the options to find the best CRM for you and your real estate business.

 

 

 

Know what you need and what you don't

 

 

Before committing to a real estate CRM, it’s important to determine what you want out of your software. Some will recommend a solution that takes care of every aspect of the sales and marketing process (we call these power users); others say these all-in-one applications tend to be mediocre at everything. We at Track The Lead have found the sweet spot to merge simplicity and power.

 

 

Whatever your opinion, it’s important to decide how many bells and whistles you really need—and are willing to pony up the cash for. Do you just want an easy way to manage your contacts? Are you interested in tracking, managing, mailing, temptlating and other things you might never use? Do you want web building and marketing tools on top of that? Answer these questions before diving in, and you’ll save yourself time, money, and headaches in the long run.

 

 

 

Make sure it comes with the right training

 

 

Sure it's simple and easy to use but no matter how easy it is to use their will always be questions. Make sure a CRM comes with the right training videos to get you going. As we are all visual learners this helps tremendously with setting up a new system. Training also comes in handy when learning the right kind of tactics in order to use our CRM to the fullest. Here at Track the Lead we not only build a high quality system, we teach you how to use it backwards and forwards.

 

 

We also train on tactics that involve new marketing through social media and blogging. We give you the tools and the tricks to accelerate your business to the next level. Make sure to sign up through our newsletter to get up to date coverage.

 

 

 

Keep it simple and lightweight

 

 

Unfortunately, many real estate CRMs focus so much on trying to solve all your problems that they create new ones with respect to usability. The best CRMs strike a balance between function and form, offering just enough valuable features but not so many that the user interface is difficult to understand.

 

 

While complex, feature-rich software may have been the order of the day ten years ago, the advent of mobile devices and apps has made simplicity a key virtue. Indeed, one strategy for gauging a CRM’s user interface is to evaluate the mobile apps and solutions it offers. If they’re strong, the company probably has its UI priorities in order; if they’re weak or nonexistent, it may reflect a thorny desktop app.
