You get back what you send out.

Zig Ziglar photoI am a very "up" person and people frequently ask me how I maintain my enthusiasm. I do several things, including reading an average of three hours each day for the past 26 years. One of the fun things I do is to give people my special greeting. Whether it's eight o'clock in the morning or eight o'clock at night, I always try to greet others before they have a chance to speak to me.

 What if you used these 5 Tips to improve your closings?

Dan Rinzema photoInternet customers are different than face-to-face customers. On one hand, they expect (and even demand) information fast (they are used to finding whatever they need with a click of a button), and on the other hand, internet shoppers are usually much earlier in the home buying process, so they can take longer to close. When you are dealing with internet leads, you need both speed and patience.

How might homebuyer's priorities change if we were able to demonstrate the dollar-by-dollar payback of energy-efficient manufactured homes?

Shawn Mullins photoAccentuating one's attributes has been a successfully used strategy since the beginning of time. There is a reason that "sex sells." It sells because it takes advantage of our inner nature and desires. Now while that is not the particular angle of this piece, it does prove the point regarding the inherent value in selling from our strengths. Whether it is applied for

We have become so distracted by new sales that we forgot the best way to get more sales is to make customers.

Mike Moore photoMost businesses seem to be in survival mode waiting for the economy to recover and wondering what's next. Manufactured Housing is no exception. To find out what's next, we do need to look back for just a few minutes. Many of us have suffered through and prospered from recessions or economic downturns in the past. The only thing I can get anyone in the financial markets, business analysts or in business in general to agree upon is

Greg McClanahan photoEvery genuinely successful professional embodies the point of this story.

When your manufactured housing client feels that you have moved onto their side of the desk and they realize that you are looking at their needs, wants and situation from their same perspective, that is the very moment that they select you as the person they want to have helping them build their next home. Those professionals who truly carry this posture and can quickly exemplify this attitude in the relationship building process will realize the greatest success. You become their partner, advisor and friend.

What is the key to change what can be changed?

L.A. 'Tony' Kovach photoAll of us go through a process of ignoring, denying and accepting circumstances in our lives. The trash needs to be taken out; let's say that is the reality. We can ignore that fact. We can deny it. We can accept it. Once we accept it, we can then move on to decide what to do about it. If we are wise, at some point, we take the trash out or have someone take it out for us.

The reality is that some things are more complicated than merely emptying the waste can into the trash container outside, awaiting the next run of the garbage collector.

How to keep your residents happy and personally engaged during the disruption caused by your community upgrade program

Chrissy Jackson photoRetain Residents by…

During any major upgrade program, it is generally desirable to retain as many of your current residents as you can. They provide, on a regular basis, the cash flow that helps finance the daily operations as well as the turn-around efforts on your property. They will also serve as your marketing partners in bringing new residents in, once the upgrade process has progressed to the point of visible improvement. In addition, your current residents are the very ones who can help you make the upgrades more visible.

In a recent conversation with a business woman from South America, I asked how the recession was affecting her business. She laughed out loud and said, "Recession?

Do you know the do's and don'ts of getting hot results from your cold calls?

Tim Connor photoIn many ways cold calling is an ancient method when it comes to effective prospecting. And many modular, prefab and manufactured housing organizations rely heavily on this approach – from suppliers, to lenders to those who sell the nuts and bolts with which the homes are constructed. Cold calling can be an effective way to identify new prospects, but it can also be a stressful, time wasting and discouraging process as many salespeople over the years have learned.
