Photos and videos are now being made available from HomeGain Nation 2010 in San Francisco on March 1st. Below are a few of both to show you the highlights.

Thanks to over 100 real estate professionals for attending the event. We received excellent feedback:

“The venue was an excellent choice and I appreciate HomeGain’s hospitality. It makes me feel that we are partners in this relationship and that you are willing to invest your time and money to help my business succeed and grow.” – Peter Rice, Keller Williams, Reno, NV

“I really enjoyed this session and think it was even better than last year. I always walk away with more information to help me be more successful in my business which is what it’s all about. I met so many people this week which is also great!” – Nancy Watkins, Utah Homes & Land, Inc., Salt Lake City, UT

HomeGain Nation – A Look Back at the BuyerLink Session

HomeGain did an awesome job this past Monday with their full day of training for 100 customers (HomeGain Nation 2010).  If you were lucky enough to be there, you enjoyed over 8 hours of great information on a variety of subjects, but most of all, on how to use the HomeGain products to best increase your business.

I had the privilege of speaking about the BuyerLink product.  Well actually, my talk was more about how to mirrorcapture a lead and how to create the leads you capture into customers for life.

I covered Landing Pages and how to create the best landing page to capture the most leads.  I discussed our 100MPH marketing system which helps you turn leads into customers.  I also talked about different aspects of creating traffic.  And what I believe to be most important, we had a great conversation with everyone about making phone calls, how important they are and what to talk about during your first phone calls.

When I got home I realized, based on some emails I received and based on the conversations I had with so many after I spoke, that many of you might have questions after you went home and decided to try to implement some of what we discussed.  After all, it was a lot of information in a very short period of time.

With that said, on Wednesday this week, March 10, at 2pm Eastern, I am going to hold a webinar on lead capture and conversion.  We will talk about creating your landing pages  and then discuss lead conversion.

If you were not at the HomeGain event, this would be a good opportunity to learn some great tips on how to accomplish the above categories.  After all, Lead Capture and Conversion are the most important aspects of real estate Internet marketing.

I look forward to helping you take your Internet program to the next level!

The Art Behind Social Media Relationships

Social media relationships are all about comfort level… after all you haven’t even met yet.art-social-media

The new world of social media allows people to connect initially online, and then hopefully in real life at a conference, event or an arranged meeting. Simply put, the face to face meeting cements the relationship on a tangible emotional level. The operative word is emotion. The social media conversation that leads to a business relationship is conducted primarily through chat, email and a perusal through blogs, Facebook profiles and Tweets. Since there may be no tangible face to face feedback, the emotional criteria for gauging a virtual relationship based on a batch of text-based interchanges is not “what are they saying, what is the content?”, but “how do I feel about this virtual relationship?”. It’s about comfort level.

The art behind social media relationships is to make people feel happy.

If you’re providing valuable content, your readers thank you. If you’re a great joker, your readers laugh. It’s all about good will, and your online presence should mirror this message.

Most people on the social media don’t give a second thought about how they present themselves to the world, living by the “this is how I am, so take or leave it” credo. That’s ok. Just be considerate of the fact that comfort levels can deflate if you’re lauding Glenn Beck in San Francisco, or supporting socially liberal causes in Utah. Labeling is easy to do on the social media because it’s a text-based media; everybody has seen examples of rants that devolve into labeling and context twisting.

If you’re in the business to work with as many people as possible, it’s not hard to make good will a social media objective. Unless of course, you are inclined to work with people who also share your life philosophies… I have heard many stories by folks who have built businesses by being ardent and outspoken in their beliefs, and it seems to work for them.

Pat Kitano will be speaking at HomeGain Nation on Monday, March 1, 2010, about social networking trends and advice for real estate professionals.

Basic Sales – If you never knew the basics, how can you succeed?

Sometimes, even with experienced real estate agents and brokers, I find that they have never really studied sales.  They have never really had a system in place to help them be a better sales person.  I know, most of us say that we are not like sales-basics-blackboardreal sales people, I agree.  However, we still must use some of the same skills that anyone successful sales person would employ.

For instance, if you don’t listen to your customer, you won’t know their needs.  If you don’t educate your customer, you might lose them to another agent.  If you don’t provide accurate answers to their questions in a timely manner, you might as well kiss them goodbye, too!

Sales, and I don’t really care what you are selling, is all about having a good solid system and understanding of what you need to do to help your customer.  If your goal is to do whatever it takes to help your customer, you are on the right track.  However, if you are ADD like me, it might be a little easier said than done.

This Thursday, Feb. 11, at 2pm Eastern, I will be holding a real estate webinar that I am opening up to Agents that are not members of The eHomes Realty Network.  I find that the lack of understanding of basic sales inhibits most Agents from succeeding.  Whether you have been in the business for 20 years or 2 weeks, this webinar will help take your business to the next level!  I’m looking forward to seeing many of you there!

Mitch Ribak will be a presenter at HomeGain Nation Live Real Estate Forum 2010 on March 1 for the 11am session titled “Internet Lead Conversion Made Simple”.
