The first thing you need to do is prepare to mail your postcards much longer than 3 months. Most prospects need to see your message at least 7 times before they become familiar enough with you to respond. Sure, some prospects will respond in the first 1 or 2 months but the bulk of them will respond further down the road. Plan your marketing budget accordingly. The next thing is to make sure you have a "prospect funnel" in place; a process for these prospects to respond to your marketing. For example, most marketing for Realtors means making a prospect call your cell phone and trying to sell them right then and there. But thats like trying to convince the girl you just met in the gym to "tie the knot" with you tomorrow at 7pm.
Marketing for Realtors is more than just placing an ad or mailing out postcards. There are countless aspects you need to be aware of and improve on but one of the biggest is tracking marketing campaigns that youve started. If you want to be a top producing Realtor, you need to track the statistics of your marketing campaigns. Dont worry, its 2nd grade math! Lets start off with postcard mailings as an example since this is common marketing for Realtors. Most Realtors will pick a neighborhood, mail out their postcards for 3 months and count the number of active clients or closings they receive from their mailing. Is that enough? Not even close.
Tip #5 - Use Speech Recognition. Many computers come with Speech Recognition software ready to be installed. You can set it up for free and if you have a child who learns verbally, they might like try using the spelling feature so they dont have to type. As you tell them the words, they would spell them into the microphone as they are typed onto the screen. For Microsoft users, you go to Start > Control Panel > Speech Recognition Options to set up the program. 2nd grade spelling words are usually harder and more complex than first grade. By trying a few of the tips above, you can help your child learn his spelling words in no time. Mix it up a little so your kids dont get bored and try to have fun. Spelling can build confidence in reading and writing so take some time to practice with your children.
Do you plan summer outings to nature centers or parks? Take this opportunity to learn about trees or plants. Otherwise, consider having your child help you plant a garden. Get some basic books from the library to help your child understand the basics and get them a little gardening gear for fun. Have them keep a little journal over the summer about what theyve learned about each activity. Have them draw pictures or make leaf prints. You can even have them store leaf specimens in little baggies that you can staple to the journal pages. Have them journal about vacations too. With just a little planning, it is easy to incorporate learning into nearly any activity.
Experiments in Education As a relatively new teacher, I sense the entire education system has been and will continue to be going through various experiments in the coming decade particularly in poor urban neighborhoods. A classmate of mine just started working at an elementary school with a new experimental model - class size, 60; number of teachers, 4 Lessons are taught to every kindergartner and 1st grader in three different languages and the teachers dont get any breaks. Oh, and the master teacher on each grade level makes six figures but hasnt been in the system 22 years. I welcome the change and admire educators like my friend and classmate who are willing to go for it, while kidding themselves about the potential to fail. As I left his class, I couldnt help but wonder if they will learn any better, being comfortable. They may be less likely to cut the class but algebra on a couch with nature sounds playing in the background is still algebra. We have to be careful not to forget that people have been working on the issue of improving public education since public education has been around and that we dont need to create everything from scratch. On the other hand, to see significant results, we need significant change which may challenge much of what we consider education today.
Many children start to show weaknesses in mathematics during the 2nd grade, as many classrooms introduce fractions, place values and other potentially difficult concepts. Addition and multiplication skills are also reinforced throughout the year, and if your child is struggling, he or she will likely continue to struggle without some help. Problems usually become evident towards the middle of the school year, as this is usually when children start falling behind and when new concepts are typically introduced. Fortunately, parents can help kids understand and perform 2nd grade math skills with some appropriate at-home practice.
