Roommate Advertisements – Making a Great Impression When Replying by Phone [part 2]

So, now that you know to how a build rapport with the advertiser, your next challenge is to let them know that you could be their perfect roommate. Here are 5 steps that can help you get to the next step, the roommate interview.

1. Create An Answering Machine Message

You should prepare a short message that you can leave in case you reach the advertiser’s answering machine or voicemail. This includes your contact details, the time you called, where you saw the advertisement and that you would like to be called back.

2. Prepare For Question Time

During your phone interview, you may be asked a few questions about your history of living with roommates, why and when you’re looking to move and the roommate qualities that are important to you. For this reason, it’s important that you prepare how you would like to answer each of these questions so that you don’t get caught off guard. You may also like to prepare some questions you would like to ask if you’re given the chance.

3. Suggest A Meeting

If you feel the advertiser could be the right roommate, you may like to take the lead and suggest to meet in person. This lets the advertiser know you are seriously looking for a roommate and genuinely feel that they could be the right roommate for you. When you meet your potential roommate, it should be in a public place like a coffee shop or shopping center.

4. Give Your Contact Details

Sometimes when you’ve build a good rapport with an advertiser, it can be easy to forget to give your details or alternatively the advertiser could misplace them. For this reason, you should make sure that the advertiser has your name and phone number so that they can contact you.

5. Make Notes About Your Phone Call

You should write down the topics covered during your conversation to help you prepare and jog your memory before or during your next phone call or meeting. If you receive a call and you can’t remember that you called the advertiser or details of your conversation, your potential roommate may feel you are not serious or interested in becoming their roommate.

By taking the time to prepare before each phone call, you can become a good conversationalist and build the rapport you need to get your message across. More importantly, you’ll be able to avoid making any blunders, create a great first impression and find the right roommate for you.

Good luck and happy roommate hunting!

Roommate Advertisements – Making a Great Impression When Replying by Phone [part 1]

Have you ever hung up the phone after answering a roommate advertisement and thought the conversation could have gone better? Join the club. Many people blurt out the wrong thing, get tongue-tied or leave out important details when talking to a potential roommate for the first time.

The key to being a good phone conversationalist is building a strong rapport with the other person while getting your message across. You can do this by taking a few minutes before ringing the advertiser to prepare a few notes that you can refer to during your conversation. Preparing notes lets you think more clearly which means you’re less likely to say the wrong thing or loose your train of thought. This lets you gain self-confidence, which in turn helps you create a free-flowing conversation and make a good first impression. Your notes, for example, might include how you would like to answer different questions or respond to various scenarios during your phone call.

The Attack of the Advertiser – Spy Mother Spy Part 2

Let’s Reason

Truthfully, I think we need to intervene and get a hold of this situation. There are companies that produce “hijackers” for the sake of advertising. But that code has grown far too chaotic to serve as any means for honest advertising. I am hired every day to fix problems brought about by certain American corporate advertising campaigns.

Most of us have experienced the various “Trojans” that hijack your Internet browser start and search pages, changing them to some site that they are advertising for, let alone the formidable “about.blank” page. The Trojan then makes it difficult to change these setting back, often requiring Registry edits and special removal tools just so you can get back to easy Internet browsing.

Let’s look at some industry specifics.

One of the largest Adware agencies WhenU.com of New York, distributes its software piggybacked on popular “free” applications downloaded from the Internet. Once on your computer, it then distributes advertisements in the form of pop-ups to your desktop as you browse the Internet. Who’s to blame in this scenario, WhenU or its clients that actually pay WhenU to distribute their ads? Merck, T-Mobile, Priceline, Verizon, to name a few.

And mortgage brokers. I would say that 50% of all the spam I receive is based around some untrue promise about an enormously low interest rate for which I qualify. Strange, most of the junk mail I get in my street mailbox is the same crap. WHO FALLS FOR THIS? It must work if the junk keeps coming and coming.

I am not talking specifically about spam here, that is a story in itself, but I am talking about unfair marketing techniques that need to be controlled. We all see our fair share of mortgage company pop-ups, don’t we?

Give me the shotgun!

The worst of the worst are the various toolbar distributors that promise a better Internet experience. CoolWebSearch, Hotbar, WyWebSearch, and the horrid “My Search Assistant” which mutates itself if you try to uninstall it. How creepy is that? Every time you uninstall the hijacker, it places itself in a different spot on your computer and renames itself, so the next time you restart your PC, it re-installs. Trust me, the longer you keep this program on your system, the worse your system gets. More and more pop-ups which lead to more spyware and adware and the resolution is horrendous. Wipe and reload.

The Reverence

Bow down to the savior of smart computing. Learn to understand how your system gets infected. Learn to use the appropriate spyware and adware prevention programs and removal tools. Learn to get some help before it is too late. The difficult part if finding who to trust.

The Attack of the Advertiser – Spy Mother Spy part 1

The menacing campaigns that drive the corporate spyware and adware market is developing way out of hand. Who are these companies and how do they get away with it? They are costing computer users millions with their sneakware system of promotional crap!

We have some serious problems. These narcissistic bugger programmers that develop application and browser hijackers, pop-up pushers, adware scams and other bogus blots of code that only make life worse, need to be taught a lesson or two. They are like fleas, pesky taggers, used gum thrown on the pavement that you just stepped in, but way worse. And for what reason? Advertising?

The graffiti artist or “tagger” is trying to make a name for himself by either creative representation or pure mass distribution. Hey, you are all annoying, you are all vandals, but really, your destruction is trite. We are not afraid of you we just think your art is ugly.

Of course you can get some bug spray or clean your shoe, but these hijacks will cost you a whole lot more. Oh yeah, I have seen massive amounts of destruction brought about by malicious code, and I am not talking about viruses.

Promotional Merchandise – A Versatile But Successful Advertiser

Promotional merchandise has been a key factor for the marketers. It is being distributed to the general public to make them aware of the product or service of the business. Not only will the company be promoted to their target market, but it will also enable the business to be marketed to other companies as well.

A Variety of Choices

If you try to look around and check, you will see tons of this promotional merchandise on the office desk, on telephone counters and just about everywhere. It just proves that these are popular choices because the businesses have proved them effective marketing tools.

Promotional merchandise could be include a promotional pen or pencil, highlighters, markers or notepads. There are actually endless possibilities to promote the business. It could also be a mouse, mouse pad, a USB flash drive, or a toy perhaps. These are just some of the accepted novelty items that businesses have considered efficient freebies. A high retention level is ensured and they make such a great value for the money spent to have the company name and logo on these items. A wide scope of these items gives the business a wider range of people to get the message to.

Careful Thinking

It is not just about being cost efficient. A business has to consider if the promotional merchandise is appropriate for the company and to the recipients as well. If you are considering your best customers, the business should have an apt corporate gift. You can’t just give the ordinary promotional pen to the top clients; instead it would be more suitable to give fountain pens or boxed gift items. For the business should not only consider of having these advertising items wise on the budget, but should also regard the targeted recipients. What is most important is to have these versatile items to support the long-term plans of the business.

Attracting More Customers

What’s great about a business having promotional merchandise is that there is more potential for the customers to keep coming in. Whether they are old or new customers, the business doesn’t mind because this is what the marketing strategy is all about. Once you have reeled in the customers, the next step is to keep them. And this is what actually keeps the business in the market, customer retention. With these effective promotional items, the message gets into the mind of the customers and the business knows that they have got their message across.
