Content Is King! Blogging, Video B2B and B2C Tips for Manufactured Home Marketers

February 4th, 2016 No comments

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then an infographic can be worth still more. Good video takes time, effort and has a cost, but you’ll see from the third party facts below why investing in video makes good (Dollars and sense. 😉

One reason MHProNews and MHLivingNews dominate in their respective categories is because we practice what we preach. We generate daily, relevant content on MHProNews. The result? At the time I’m doing this blog, here is how many people our home page guest tracker says are on our site, “We have 3585 guests online.”

To put that in perspective, 1571 is the official total registrations (not arrivals, registrations) for the 2016 Louisville Show, per Show Ways Unlimited final tally. So we have more than double on our site at this moment, as the 2 day show had for total registrations. Needless to say, others will come to MHProNews during the course of every 24 hour day.

Outsource content creation can often be more cost effective, and while a company like Inklyo could be good in many fields, MHMarketingSalesManagement specialize in factory built housing. We know the market and the target audiences.

Marketers widely agree, Content is King. Good content means better SEO, more traffic and more love from Google or others. It means more return visits from your target audience. The following is circa Aug 2015.

As you read the below, keep in mind that a blog post can be vidoes, images, text a combination or a variety of different kinds of content.

Why-Blogging-Matters-creditBloggerSideKick-postedCuttingEdgeBlog-MHProNews-

We have professional writers who know MH, but compre what we do to Blogger Sidekick or anyone else in MH. We give the added benefit that your marketing dollars support our industry building efforts, and routinely yields additional back links and exposure on sites you’d not otherwise be on – that’s good for your site and business image.

We do a variety of video styles, from commercials, to third-party news interviews, lower to higher tech. Two examples are below.

Note that the interviews are real people and are unscripted, that creates more interest for viewers.

What are you doing in your content marketing for 2016 to increase your engagement with your audience? Come to the pros who know the MH biz and know good content creation.

We do websites, professional content creation, including video, copy writing and more for B2B and B2C. We also do sales recruiting and sales coaching, that draws high praise from attendees.

What’s Your Plan During 2016 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show?

January 14th, 2016 No comments

What are your plans while at the 2016 Louisville MH Show? To catch the latest updates from other companies at the show, see their Corporate Press Releases, linked here.

Beyond that, a quick backgrounder below will be followed by a tip that can boost your business.  You’ll want to make sure you work what follows into your show mix.

kovach_tamas_at_tunica-manufactured-housing-show-posted=cutting-edge-mhpronews-com-

We’ll once more have the “Youngest Exhibitor!” – Tamas (pronounced like TahMash) Kovach (pronounced like CoVatch – a “watch” with a V) at the 2016 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show.

We will be at Louisville for the 6th straight year, at booth #215.

No less a person than Louisville Show Chair Ron Thomas Sr. has publicly credited and thanked us for our role in bringing the show back from cancellation in 2010, see that kudos and thank you message, linked here.

Along with others, we’re super pleased that the show has advanced so far, so fast in these challenging times. As you think about who are you going to call for professional services, remember – the biggest turn-around in the industry’s recent history was credited to our team’s work.

A Tip for Louisville 2016!

Video is red hot. A recent study suggests that marketers who use video online see a 76% increase in conversions! That said, as noted, MHProNews/MHLivingNews and our marketing and sales operation – MHMarketingSalesManagement.com – will be at booth #215.  We do contracted video, web, marketing, sales training and so much more…

We’ll make normally costly video a no brainier for you.  Between 9:30 AM to noon on Wednesday, January 20th and 9:15 AM to 10:45 AM Thursday, January 21. Depending on lines and demand, we may also add time on Friday morning, 9 AM to 10:30 AM. Here’s the simple plan!

Manufactured Home Retailers! MH Communities! MH Brokers!

Video can cost a $1000 per produced minute and up, depending on the level of tech and special effects. We can make you and your community the featured operation in a co-branded video like the one below for our Louisville Show special of only $295.*

You can get a video like the one above at a
special price during the Louisville MH Show.
Stop by booth #215 to learn more or to order your video!

We can make these videos for you, with or without you being in the video.  So there is NO stress or pressure.  If you want to be in the video, we can capture you – and using a green screen – allow us to edit you into your office, model home, or most anything – like the White House, Statute of Liberty – that we can get a high res photo of or video clip!

The Louisville Show Special – our customized basic $295* promo package – includes up to an hour of video editing, which allows us to personalize this video for you and your location!  

So your video would have your location’s name and logo, instead of Elite Homes, as in the example above.  

There are other cool things we can do for that same fee.  

We will also have other packages of vidoes – including on-site work that we could include in our popular Inside MH Road Show – that we will be offering during the L’ville Show at a special price.  If you are planning on video for 2016, don’t shake hands with anyone until you talk to us. You’ll get more for your money, period.

Bring your company check or credit card, come to booth #215 and we can make this happen for YOU and YOUR LOCATION at Louisville 2016.

Looking to outsource or contract services?

As one of the best known – and most endorsed – marketers and sales coach in all of manufactured housing, we should be your first, last or only call.  What we don’t do, we can point you to others who could likely provide a service you need.  For the fine print on the above, please see below.  We look forward to seeing you at the Louisville Show, booth #215. ##

Easy Doesn’t Pay Well – in Life, or Manufactured Housing

January 11th, 2016 No comments

Don’t let excuses create a rut that keeps you from advancing. Photo credit, WikiCommons, poster credit, MHProNews.com

The excuses given for low performance in MH are nearly endless. Blame the lenders, blame the leads, blame the CFPB, blame the marketing, blame Congress, blame local zoning officials, you get the picture, because you’ve heard them all and more.  So beyond the blame game what’s next?

How about not being the victim? 

How about being goal and solution oriented, vs excuse oriented? 

How about doing whatever honest effort it takes, instead of waiting for some easy sale?  As the president of a respect, successful firm told me, “Easy doesn’t pay well.

It all starts with Attitude

No less a successful personality in MH than Jim Clayton believes you can develop a good attitude, if you or a team member doesn’t already have one. 

Positive Information can spark that belief, that can do attitude. 

But ultimately it must be integrated. It can start outside, but the positive can-do attitude must live within. 

MHLivingNews-com-ImprovedLivingForLess-Logo-250x88

Look at the world through the eyes of those who choose MH over other housing options. One free way to start a good attitude is to see how many great stories from real home owners and pros you find on MHLivingNews.com.

Then, learn to know when you can use those stories to close more deals. Share the video(s) that addresses a customer’s needs, at the right time.

Attitude is the start. Marketing and Training that attracts and sells more of the customers with cash or good credit are the next steps. Easy doesn’t pay well, excuses are what locks someone into a rut.  Escape the rut, stop the excuses and be willing to learn the new ways to attracts and sell the people who can more easily qualify for your new homes. ##
