During our PowerHour Open-Mic on Tuesday, we went deep into the details of your lease agreement. When meeting with HR directors, relocation companies and/or corporate decision-makers in need of furnished/serviced apartments for stays of 30+ days, your lease agreement is a key part of the process, yes?

And given the lease agreement red flags we covered…it may be a place to decline to work with a prospective new company and/or guest, right?

Was it helpful to clarify the importance of lease agreement scope plus our discussion about how to handle extra services and extra fees? And to discuss industry best-practices related to utility caps/fees, property damages and lease-break terms?

Of the 16 most important areas to include in every presentation---your sales contract is the cornerstone for starting new company relationships in a productive, profitable and positive way.

As always---keep selling...have fun...and compete ferociously---with a focus on G.R.A.C.E. [Growing Revenue & Cultivating Excellence].

459. Corporate Housing Sales Leadership Feed-Forward, Not Feed-Back?

As a corporate housing sales leader…helpful to hear examples of what “on permanent video” means? It’s a reminder of how closely those on your team…follow, watch and hear the things you say and remember the way you communicate with them, yes? And the same thing happens when you communicate with your corporate housing clients, relocation companies, HR directors and other prospective new clients, right?

Feed-forward…not feed-back ==>> an important corporate housing sales principle, right? During our PowerHour Open-Mic today, we asked each of you to make a list of your 3 most significant sales strengths and weaknesses. From that list…which points will you incorporate the feed-forward model we shared with you? How will you utilize feed-forward into your corporate housing selling strategies during the next few days?

Plus, we continue our focus on your best selling strategies during the 2014 budget season for your HR directors, relocation companies and key corporate decision-makers, for those in need of furnished/serviced apartments for stays of 30+ days.

As always---keep selling...have fun...and compete ferociously---with a focus on G.R.A.C.E. [Growing Revenue & Cultivating Excellence].

404. Charlotte, Internet Marketing PowerHour White Paper

Over the last 30 days we have completed for Charlotte the first-ever Internet Marketing PowerHour White Paper…that shares never-before-seen insight to the Internet marketing in Charlotte, who is competing for what and which websites are winning and losing.

Based on our research over the last 30 days, 3,920 web searches have been done by individuals, relocation professionals and key HR & corporate decision-makers in need of a furnished apartment in Charlotte for a stay of 30+ days.

Charlotte is averaging 689 monthly furnished apartments totaling $21,331,440 in gross annual revenue.

From our research in Charlotte, here is a summary of the questions being asked/answered in our PowerHour White Paper and a summary of our findings:

From today…helpful to discuss when a *no* is a *no*…and how to “stay-in-the-no” to move back to a *yes*…when working with inbound sales leads/calls or during a sales presentation with relocation companies or HR directors for large major employers?

345. the steps for how to include a side-by-side market comparison in every sales presentationBased on the steps for how to include a side-by-side market comparison in every sales presentation---when you are meeting with major employer decision-makers and relocation companies…we covered lots today on this point, yes?

With a focus on why only one corporate housing competitor per page…are you clear on the reasons why?

Tied to market comparisons…how quickly can you build your first one? As my gift…craft it and send it over for my review---before this Friday at 5:00pm.

The key point from our PowerHour Open-Mic today…
