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.
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.
Why Math Problems Become Apparent Halfway Through The School Year The first question that many parents have when a teacher mentions that a child is struggling with 2nd grade math is why they werent informed sooner. This can be an unfair question, as teachers are rarely aware of weaknesses until theyve had time to work with their students for several months. This is why mid-year math problems are fairly common with 2nd graders. In reality, kids who struggle with math are usually struggling with instruction techniques, which is why differentiated instruction is gaining favor in thousands of United States classrooms. However, it can be hard for both teachers and parents to spot problems and therefore make the appropriate changes. The right tools can make this process easier.
Now heres the thing with this type of marketing for Realtors that you need to understand.. Offering a free home tour or market analysis is nothing unique. Every Realtor in the world offers this. But the reason why youll get a higher response rate is because youre offering these services after youve started building a relationship with them. Other Realtors are impatiently offering it before they meet the prospect; just like trying to convince someone to marry you before you meet them. You have the advantage by building the relationship through this "prospect funnel". Capturing a client is all about the relationship. Without it, youre just another Realtor, in their eyes. Be patient; let them get to know you and youll see much higher results.
To create the atmosphere of a true scientific experiment, we took 3 jars and sterilized them to make sure they were equally clean environments. We took a cup of freshly cooked rice and apportioned it equally between the 3 jars then immediately sealed them. The first jar was promptly placed on top of the refrigerator and forgotten about, the second was sadly labeled you fool, and the final jar was labeled with the words thank you. For the next week and a half we proceeded to ignore the first jar (other than to document our daily observations); we yelled nasty insults at the contents of the second jar and cooed loving sentiments each day toward the lucky rice in the third jar.
Advancing to Higher Concepts No matter what level a child is at when entering 2nd grade, its essential for him or her to have a full understanding of new math concepts before the end of the year. Adding and subtracting numbers with multiple digits and cementing fluency in basic addition and subtraction facts are key ideas in 2nd grade math. Mastery of these skills sets the stage for being able to learn multiplication and division later on. By tracking progress from moment to moment, online math games can adapt to the skill level of every child and aid in preparing him or her to understand advanced numerical concepts. By incorporating virtual teaching tools and online math games, teachers can help to ensure that kids get a full grasp of each new concept as it comes. The individual attention that these games can offer takes classroom instruction to the next level, offering a better chance at success to a larger subset of students. With online games, 2nd grade math becomes fun and engaging for students regardless of skill level or learning style.
