Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) April 11, 2014

Vision-e today announced it has launched its third free app, eSign, on the App Store. eSign is an intuitive app that allows users to sign any PDF document on their iPad. Whether the PDF has been sent to the user via email or opened from a browser, if the document is a PDF, it can be e-signed, and then saved or emailed, using eSign.

In his pcworld.com article, E-signatures: The complete guide to paperless signing, author Christoper Null notes, E-signing tools represent a high-tech and much-needed response to the vast inefficiencies of dealing with physical signatures. eSign was created specifically to address this need, and to do so in a way that makes e-signing affordable, fast, and easy for any user with an iPad.

Bop Design Announces Tips for Creating Brand Awareness Videos


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 04, 2014

As noted in a recent study conducted by eMarketer, B2B marketers are investing heavily in video marketing because their clients (like most internet visitors) are watching more videos than ever before. People in general gravitate toward visual storytelling, says Liya Sharif, senior director of global marketing at Qualcomm. Video is an incredible way to tell a story for either a B2B or B2C brand.

In an age that celebrates storytelling and imagery, the use of videos to promote brand awareness has skyrocketed, says Jeremy Durant, business principal at Bop Design, a San Diego web design agency. B2B branding and sales-related videoswhether they appear on a Facebook page, YouTube channel or on short-format platforms like Vine or Instagramare quickly becoming the content-marketing tool of choice among top brand marketers.

Businesses also post branding videos on their websites, including on:

Landing pages
Product detail pages
Testimonial pages
Virtually everywhere on the site as a sidebar feature
Videos can be circulated via email, newsletter and virtually every way you communicate with current and prospective customers.

Durant offers these tips to get going:

Know your objectives. Broadly speaking, there are two main types of business-branding videos to considerconversion videos and brand-building videos, he says. A conversion video is chiefly designed to generate leads and drive sales. A branding video seeks to position your brand within the larger industry or demonstrate to viewers how use of your product or service will benefit them. Knowing your ultimate branding or marketing objectives in advance (rather than determining them afterward) can save you considerable time and money.

Tailor the video to your preferred audience. Because the tone and subject matter of videos can vary widely, businesses need to understand how the intended audience will likely respond. Some target customers enjoy a tongue-in-cheek approach, but the same approach can alienate viewers in another market. Says Durant, No single type of video will appeal to everyone, so dont even try.

Its also important to gauge the level of knowledge and sophistication among intended viewers. Senior decision makers, industry experts and influencers will respond more favorably to an in-depth approach, while those new to a business will get lost if the subject-matter is too dry and detailed. Consider the proper tone for the video (corporate, humorous, traditional, informal, etc.) during the planning process.

Decide on the right type of video. Assessing the desired audience response can help guide businesses toward the type of video they want to make. There are dozens of potential video format choices, such as:

On location or at an event
Two or more talking heads
Product demonstration or how-to format
A look behind the scenes of your business
Customer testimonials
Animation
Interview with the CEO
Case study
Whatever approach you choose, keep in mind our human predilection toward storytelling, Durant says. Not every type of video naturally lends itself to a narrative format, but with a little imagination, most of them do. Your brand is your story how you choose to tell it should resonate with your target market. Make people care about your product or service. Thats how brands become better known and followed.

Optimize the video for SEO. How-to videos (such as the basic informational type seen in great numbers on YouTube) are an effective way to improve a businesss search engine ranking. Think about how often people type in how to as part of their online search, Durant says. If your instructional video includes how to in the title (combined with key phrases most often used by your target audience), it stands a good chance of driving targeted traffic back to your website.

Make the video easy to share. When people come upon a video they like, theyre apt to share it with friends and colleagues in their social media networks. Offer easy ways to embed a video so they can share it on various blogs or websites. Also, set up a YouTube business channel, where viewers can locate the video and promote it via Twitter, Facebook and other platforms.

Creating videos to boost your brand doesnt have to be expensive or time-consuming, Durant says. As long as you focus on entertaining and informing the target audience, yours could be the next video to go viral.

In 2006 Chris sold the Harcourts Property Centre real estate sales business to concentrate solely on property management. The property management division of the real estate business was renamed Rental Express. Rental Express is now the largest privately owned residential property management business in Queensland with over .5 billion worth of real estate under management across 234 suburbs operating from four locations. Each year Rental Express conducts over 9000 property inspections and accommodates around 6000 tenants.

Trilby became an icon in the area with active community involvement and he also set up a very successful legal practice, Trilby Misso Lawyers.

Shannon Davis

"How to" add 289 new managements in 1 year

Shannon Davis is Director and Principal of Image Property Management in Brisbane.

Shannon joined the property management industry in  2009 after beginning his working life as a primary school teacher.  Shannon’s teaching career spanned 10 years and included stints in Brisbane, London and Italy.

Having previously invested in property and renovated homes, his intention was to buy the real estate company, once he had ‘learnt the ropes’.  Shannon took ownership of Image Property Management and decided there was little point growing the business until all of the current clients were happy with their services. 

The first 15 months saw very little growth – the worst time was the 2011 floods. It was very stressful catching up on all the work in that period of the year as well as the complications a natural disaster brings.

From March that year, with trustworthy staff and best practice systems in place, Shannon became the first BDM for Image.  Taking a sales approach, with superior appraisal, listing presentation and unique selling propositions Image has seen remarkable growth.   Shannon credits staffing, best practice systems, focusing on letting periods, mentors and adding the right technology as the key drivers that helped the business win managements.

In October 2013, Shannon became Head Property Strategist for Brisbane in Michael Yardney’s Metropole organisation.  This allows Shannon to combine his two loves of investing and property management and provide value, expertise and experience to fellow investors.

Shannon has been a guest on Real Estate Talk, Your Home on 4BC, AREC Lounge and his expert opinions appear in the Australian Property Investor magazine and Winning in Property management resource.

 

Deniz Yusuf

"How to" list 745 properties in 3 years

Deniz does not come from any academic background, he was a business owner in a regional town called Nowra which is on the South Coast of NSW in the Shoalhaven district just a few hours’ drive south of Sydney. He was a fruito for most of his life after he left school. One thing he tells people when coaching is “There’s no emails in Fruit”, if a new coffee shop opened up, he had to call them or go and visit them to get the business. Deniz believes that real estate has the same concept, it’s all about asking for the business and what experience you can give your clients. Real estate isn’t just about collecting rent and charging a fee.  

In 2012 & 2013 Leading Property Managers of Australia awarded Deniz the best BDM for two years in a row for “Excellence in Business Development” So in 2013 Deniz started BDMCoach.com.au.

Some of Deniz’s clients that he’s done consulting and presenting with is already an impressive line-up of clients that include Rental Express, McGrath Group, Philip Webb and more. Deniz started as a BDM in May of 2009 for Integrity Real estate, with consecutive numbers of 76, 191, 237, 317 & 104 in 4 months of 2013, a total of 925 new managements from 1077 presentations in 48 months.

His focus is now growing other people’s rent rolls and mentoring them to become market leaders in their area.

 

 

Andrew Reece

"How to" grow 1857 new managements by leasing them fast

Andrew Reece has more than 15 years’ experience in the Real Estate industry. He is well known for his intense passion for the industry, honesty and practical down to earth strategies for organic growth and systems, procedures and checklists.

 Andrew is a Certified Practising Accountant and has a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting from Queensland University of Technology.

 Working as a Real Estate Accountant for 3 years preparing monthly management reports for 25 of south east Queensland’s leading Real Estate agents, lead to his involvement in bringing the Franchise of RE/MAX to Australia.  Andrew then worked with the RE/MAX Corporate team in establishing the first 8 RE/MAX franchised Real Estate offices.

 Andrew went on to become a partner in prorentals.com.au, a 100% pure property management company which opened for business in 1998 with 31 properties. prorentals.com.au managed over 1,700 properties and employed 32 full time staff. Operating from the one office in Toowong, Brisbane, Queensland, prorentals.com.au organically grew 2,743 new managements. In late 2011, prorentals.com.au completed the sale of its properties under management. Andrew learnt how to grow a business from first hand experiences & mistakes.

 It is this first-hand experience that led Andrew to co-create inspectrealestate.com.au. Andrew identified the need for a solution to the time consuming task of manually following up on leads, booking inspections, and creating inspection runs. The inspectrealestate.com.au software automatically captures tenant details and allows tenants to book inspections online. It enables Property Managers to plan their inspection runs with the simple press of a button, allowing them to focus on the real task at hand – Property Management.
