But They will return in 2010

by Bob Stovall

Bob Stovall photoA short while back, I received an interesting email from an Internet Marketer in the Real Estate sector. The subject of the email, Are Websites Dead? caught my attention. I really wanted to see what he had to say on the subject.

If you are on any housing related email lists, you may have received this email with an invitation to download a report that would give you the evidence to support the Websites Are Dead theory.

(Editor's intro: the response to Tim's first article prompted us to say, make it so! Give us another gem, Tim, and he has on this critical topic!)

Tim Saville photoI know everyone has been down this road, as part of a management team. You spend six months doing everything humanly possible to close the deal that's worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. You begin shipping product only to find out that your dispatcher just irritated a key figure within the organization, a customer who was necessary in filling that production gap of yours. This was a do or die proposition, yet you screwed the pooch. It seems that everyone behind you laid down on the job. You get the call from the new customer informing you of the situation, saying that his previous supplier didn't have these issues, and you politely acknowledge him, thank him, and hang-up and scream… say it ain't so!

(Editor's intro: Kent's title says a lot, and this gent came recommend to us, so listen up to this powerful concept!)

Kent Stichter photoNo one needs to tell you that it's a tough economy out there today. You know that you need every advantage you can get over your competitors. You also know you need to do that on a shrinking budget. When it comes to selling a manufactured home it is even more difficult. You want to market your model homes as cost effectively as possible. As a design professional, I wish I had a dollar for every client that said, "Make it look amazing without costing any extra." Perhaps the best way to achieve this is by enhancing your virtual model homes.

(Editor's Note: This gent knows all sides of the community business, buying, selling, operating and more. So if you own or are considering investing in a park or community, consider the keen insights of this industry pro on this timely topic.)

Anyone out there can buy a mobile home park as there are deals you can buy with no money down as well as those in the millions of dollars. However, many of those that have purchased mobile home parks in the past 5 years are having second thoughts now because they overpaid for the park for one reason or another. Here are the top 5 reasons:

MHMSM logoMHI reports some 3600 manufactured home retailers and approximately 50,000 land-lease communities in the U.S.. Interestingly enough, this is roughly the number of new HUD Code home shipments that will take place when 2009 mercifully comes to an end.

Greg McClanahanThe first math skill I remember learning was addition. In principle, it was something I learned before I ever started kindergarten. I don't remember even talking about negatives until we were fully aware of the positives. For example, two cookies were always better than just one. Catching two fish was more fun than catching one. And, as the youngest child, I learned that if I told my mom that my brother and sister were picking on me, I could get both of them in trouble at the same time. Those were the good old days!

Tony Kovach photoIn some form or fashion, odds are good that we've encountered the dog-eat-dog mentality that can infect an office, group or organization. At the core of the dog-eat-dog mindset can be the mistaken notion that life is a zero sum game; meaning, 'if I win, you have to lose and if you win that implies I'm losing… so I better get you while I can!' When that notion spreads, it can be a cancer in any setting. How this applies to our industry should be obvious.

(Editor's Intro: this MHM Flashback article is being reprinted with some slight 2 word modifications, it still as timely topic today as when it was first published last May/June 2009 by Chris Olvera and the Merchandiser staff.)

"Your honor, may I approach the bench…?"

Tony Kovach photoIn the December 2008 issue of the Manufactured Home Merchandiser, attorney Marty Lavin aptly demonstrated his mental prowess by building a devastating case that forecast "the future" of the inevitable demise of the HUD Code sector of the factory-built housing industry. Lavin's reasoning is rock solid. So why would anyone foolishly challenge his logic?

Mike DuPure photoTo be successful in sales, we all need or should want to do certain things routinely. For example, we need to read motivational and informational articles. We need to attend seminars, workshops and lectures on sales. We need to use internet resources, such as this website. We need to feed our minds, keep our bodies healthy so that we enter into each sales encounter with the very best attitude, skills and knowledge possible!

(Editor's Intro: Would you like people to do business with you because they like you, trust you, owe you, believe in you, or for some other very important reason? All of these familiar reasons have varying degrees of importance and value when trying to secure and retain business in today's competitive world. The idea about to be shared with you makes all of them inconsequential. So let's get to it!)

  • people would buy from you again and again,
  • or that your boss would promote you on your terms, not his or hers,
