Helpful Hints

* Your “Done for You” social media service can post to 4 places for you – get the most from the service by connecting them all. Your personal Facebook profile, your Facebook business page, Twitter and Linkedin can get automatic posts using the “Done for You” social media service. If you want to see which sites you’ve connected, go to the “Social Media Accounts” tab on the left side menu once you’ve logged in to mortgagebulletin.ca

* Linkedin requires you to confirm that you still want us posting for you – every 60 days. When it’s time to confirm permissions, you will automatically receive an email from Mortgage Bulletin saying we can’t post to Linkedin until you confirm the permissions. Please follow the instructions in the email to reconnect your account.

* The more people that see your posts the better! Want more people to see your posts?

Here are 3 things you can do to help get more exposure:

1. If a post is relevant to someone, tag them in the comment section of your post (to tag someone, start typing their name as a comment and you’ll automatically see a drop down list of people that match the name you are typing).

2. Grow your influence by continually adding friends to your Facebook profile, asking people to like your page, following people on Twitter, and sending invitations to connect on Linkedin. If you’re not sure where to start, ask your recent clients and referral partners first.

3. Like getting Realtor referrals?
Make it easy for them to remember you, and add value to your relationship by sharing the best listings they post on social media on your own profiles. When you do this, make sure you also tag your Realtor, so they know that you are promoting them! When you call them up a few days later asking for referrals, you’ll get a better response as you started by giving to them first, before you asked for anything!

FREE Training: How to Boost Sales, Feel Good & Have Fun!

Conversations that Close

Do you wish there was a “magic pill” that could make selling a million times easier for you?

If yes, I have some good, and not so good news.

The not so good news is that there’s no magic pill….the GREAT news is that selling is easy and fun, once you’ve mastered a style of selling that is a fit with your personal style.

Here’s what I mean:

I’m not a hard sell type of person…so any scripts or training that try to teach that, don’t work for me.

I am however someone who loves what I do, and am a firm believer that Brokers and Agents will be more successful, make more money, have better clients and enjoy their life more if they take action with what I have to offer.

It’s not B.S.

It’s not a chant I say to myself in the mirror to convince myself every morning.

It’s something I believe to my core.

And once I mastered the ability to have that genuine belief come through in my sales style, without coming across as pushy or preachy and without ever “leaving a sale on the table” I realized it is something I am meant to share.

If you would like to learn more about authentic selling through “conversations that close”, please join my upcoming free training on Tuesday, February 23rd at 130pm EST by signing up here: http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=OKX_Y&m=3dwC059x12xF.PD&b=2MMLU3FksLu85QWnzJutOA

Webinar3

In this FREE training webinar you will learn:

* why selling with authenticity is a million times better than old school sales tricks

* how invitation based selling works, and why it feels like you’re not actually selling

* what are “offers” and how they work with invitation based selling

* what offer to make when, and how making the wrong offer will kill the sale

Click here to save your spot: http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=OKX_Y&m=3dwC059x12xF.PD&b=2MMLU3FksLu85QWnzJutOA

If you know you could be more successful, and are ready to learn a sales style that actually feels good, and has prospects magnetized by your marketing, this free training is a must attend.

I’ll even go so far as to say, the only reason not to attend is that you literally have SO much business you don’t want any more.

If however, you are looking to grow your business, are open to learning a new sales style that does not feel “salesy” at all, and you’ll actually take action with what you’ve learned, sign up here:

http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=OKX_Y&m=3dwC059x12xF.PD&b=2MMLU3FksLu85QWnzJutOA

Every time I share this sales style, I hear feedback like “that felt so good!”, “I doubled my business using this”, and “I’ve finally figured out a style that works for me…and I’m closing way more business”!

If you want those results, join me here: http://clicks.aweber.com/y/ct/?l=OKX_Y&m=3dwC059x12xF.PD&b=2MMLU3FksLu85QWnzJutOA

New IMBA – JOLT Marketing Partnership with IMBA Social Media, a “Done for You” Social Media Service

IMBA_Social_Logo_CMYK

IMBA launches “Done for You” Social Media Service for Members

For Immediate Release.

Toronto, ON. On Thursday, April 23rd the Independent Mortgage Brokers Association of Ontario (IMBA) launched its “Done for You” Social Media Service called IMBA Social Media. The service updates users Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin with high quality, relevant content and is designed to drive repeat and referral business. IMBA Social Media officially launched at IMBA’s Annual Conference and Trade Show with a 21 day free trial and $350 bonus for Brokers interested in trying out the value added service.

IMBA Social Media is a member benefit partnership between IMBA and JOLT Marketing. According to Veronica Love-Alexander, Executive Director, Member Relations IMBA, “IMBA is thrilled to partner with JOLT Marketing and to provide members with an extremely valuable membership benefit. Our members know they need to be active on social media and to be engaged with their clients and referral partners, but many are way too busy. This is the main reason IMBA Social Media was introduced.”
JOLT Marketing is the leading provider of “Done for You” Social Media for Mortgage Brokers in Canada. According to JOLT Marketing Founder, Ingrid Menninga. “At this point social media is Social CRM. If you want to effortlessly grow your mortgage business, you need to stay in touch with past clients and referral sources in the social space. But with competing priorities, and constantly changing rules on how to use social media, we’re noticing that many Brokers prefer to just have someone else take care of it for them.”

IMBA members interested in the IMBA Social Media service can get a demo and 21 day free trial, and a $350 bonus for the first 25 clients, by emailing info@joltmarketing.com or calling 1-877-620-5658

Please Welcome Jamie – our New Marketing Operations Specialist

Hello Everyone!

The summer is in full swing, and we can feel it…with the hot weather and the fact that we haven’t heard a peep from many of you:)

I’m super excited to introduce you to our newest team member! Please send a warm welcome to Jamie Patterson, our new Marketing Operations Specialist. For many of you on our “Done for You” Social Media for Realtors and Mortgage Brokers program you may have already spoken or emailed back and forth with Jamie. (And if you’re not on the program and want to learn more about it please email info@joltmarketing.com and Jamie will arrange a demo and free trial for you).

If you haven’t met Jamie yet, here’s a little bit about her, written by the fabulous Jamie herself:

I am very excited to be a part of this highly motivated and talented group of mortgage and real estate marketing professionals. I come to JOLT after having spent the past 10 years in marketing, operations, sales and customer experience. I’m particularly interested and experienced in digital marketing, branding and customer relationship management having delivered on numerous initiatives for companies big and small in the past.

When away from furthering my education and professional experience I am preoccupied with my love of travel, cooking (especially experimenting with new, difficult and striking recipes), cycling, and working to refurbish old typewriters. I love creative writing and photography; both of which go well while adventuring out of country. I am looking forward to my trip to Belgium and Poland later this summer and perhaps sharing a couple musings with you all upon my return.

I’m thrilled to be a part of JOLT Marketing and I can’t wait to start contributing to the new and finely tuned customer experience and marketing efforts here.

If you require any assistance or simply wish to write and say hello, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached easily via e-mail at Jamie@JOLTmarketing.com

All the best,

Jamie!

P.S. And this is kinda funny. Jamie is a very smile-y and friendly person…but she confessed she can’t smile in pictures:)

If you ever talk to her on the phone or in person, you’ll quickly realize just how “salt of the earth sweet” she is…don’t let this sassy photo fool you!
