Why Women Need to Invest in Real Estate

Some women today are looking forward to starting their own business. Among all of the excitement, many women still have questions in regards to important things that they need to stay informed about.
There are many things that you need to think about when starting your own business. Some of these things include: Would you like to be a rich woman? Are you looking forward to making more and more money without having to get stuck in a routine? Do you believe in your abilities and really want to achieve something? Are you passionate about learning and starting your own business? Do you believe that you have what it takes to achieve your goals, if only you had the chance to get there?
Everything you dream of can be possible; you just have to invest your time and money today in order to gain a high profit. A great way to do this is to be a woman that invests in the real estate industry. It’s not magic that’s going to improve your profit. You need to take action, create your own business, and help others find a suitable property. Your actions are what will help you earn money.
You’re going to feel really good about yourself when you start your own business instead of just going to work as an employee. Working hard and setting a foundation for everything that you want to achieve will be very rewarding.
But, don’t forget, in order to achieve your life goals, you need to work hard, do your best, be committed, and love your business. It’ll also be helpful to have a set mission, vision, and core values in place and keep them in mind as something to work toward.
Gaining all of this knowledge will help you achieve your dreams and earn more money. Sure, there are many more details that you’ll have to know down the road. But for now, you just need to know that there is power in investing in the real estate industry. It’s a great area to invest in, just follow us and we’ll teach you.

Niagara Real Estate Investment Group – Meeting – November 2015

I’ve wanted to start a group in Niagara for Real Estate Investors for a number of years. It seems that all the groups that I used to go to in Niagara have stopped their meetings and I feel that we need, as investors, like minded investors to network and share experiences.
This month I’ll be discussing how to use Social Media to market your Real Estate business.
I really enjoy informal get togethers where we, as investors, can meet over a glass of wine and chit chat and share what’s happening in our real estate world. No pressure, no speakers, nothing formal, just professionals getting together to share their real estate monthly adventures.
I’d like to meet you all on Friday, November 27, 2015 from 5-7pm at the Pillar and Post Hotel – Inside the Bar area. Free Parking is both at the back and side of the property.

If you need to speak to me you can leave a voice message at 289-273-5681.

Please email janico1@live.ca or leave a phone message if you’ll be coming, so I can look out for you.

Just look for me with my name tag at a table in the bar area, you can always ask the serving staff to take you to me.

See you all in November

Happy Investing,
Maria Rekrut

Branding Your Business for the Digital World

AAEAAQAAAAAAAASZAAAAJDdlZTM3YjhjLTIzNjAtNDYyMC04OTVmLTM4YTYxMmQ2NjJmMg

What is branding and how can it work for business owners? How can effective branding help businesses reach out to the tech-savvy Generation X?

Brand Advertising is essentially the process of making the public aware of a particular brand, so that consumers will continue to buy it. With that being said, it has changed drastically since the start of the 21st century. The start of this era began when technology came into play and declared its importance. Digital and online advertising are important in the new era, because mostly everyone nowadays is in front of a computer screen for endless amounts of the day.

For Vacation Home Owners, what is your brand saying about you and your business?  How are you standing out against your competition and how unique is your brand?

This new era is a multi-tab browsing, multi-screen viewing and multi-task distraction generation, and for the ones that weren’t born in the new era have a hard time adapting to that. The rules are simple, all you need to do is: define your brands direction, remap your brand, and keep on track (your brand needs to be trusted, relevant, essential). The reason you need to know where your brand is headed because the new era wants something straightforward, they don’t want to have subliminal messages. Create a story with your brand, such as Apple and Nike. There’s a story behind it.

On the topic of digital advertising it drives with word-of-mouth. Tweeting, facebooking and using social media to tell others what a great product it is. It is said that 92% of consumers believe recommendations from friends and family and now in the Vacation Rental daily business,  our guests can leave recommendations or complaints publicly on public listing sites such as TripAdvisor, VRBO, FlipKey,  and AirBNB.  That statistic is important, because that means if a friend or family member runs by your ad and they like it, they’re going to tell everyone they know essentially getting you more traffic from all angles.

Traditional media is going downhill, most of the 21st century consumers don’t watch television. Most of them simply watch Netflix or Hulu. They have other outlets to watch these shows online and they never even turn on a television in most cases. That is saying something about traditional media, there’s a few that still watch television, but even then are commercials still affective? Personally, commercials are a time where you go and do what you need to do before the show comes back on. With the new era, you want to reach certain audience, and digital can do that for you in many cases.
