NEW WEBINAR SERIES: 2020 Vision–It’s a Game Changer

NEW WEBINAR SERIES: 2020 Vision–It’s a Game Changer

*Our first webinar of this series was recorded live on June 12, 2020 at 2 PM ET.  Mark your calendar, and be sure to register for our next webinar on July 10, 2020.

REGISTER HERE FOR THE SERIES OR A SINGLE WEBINAR

It isn’t just the rules that have changed; we are playing a completely different game now. Homebuilding started strong in 2020. Sales were up, and inventory was low, then along came COVID-19, a pandemic and uncertainty. We experienced sheltering in place and learned to market and sell with technology.

Now, as we enter the summer months, markets are opening, and we are in a new normal. Our buyers’ focus is on staying safe and healthy, which will continue to impact sales and marketing. The good news is that sales are trending up again, and inventory is still low. This positions new construction homes well against resales, also with historically low inventory.

This webinar series will explore our new normal, and the changes homebuyers are demanding as a result. We will also explore some tried and true sales and marketing methods to see how well they are working post-quarantine. Smart builders are focusing on strategy and creating a whole new playbook to completely “up” their game or even join a different league. We are here to coach you through the skills, technology, and strategy you need to win with 2020 vision.

Join industry experts and head coaches:
Kimberly Mackey, founder and sales & marketing management consultant of New Homes Solutions Consulting
Carol Morgan, founder, and president of Denim Marketing

Each webinar will be the second Friday of each month at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT.
Look for updates on guest speakers and topics. You can register for one or all of them.

On June 12th, we will do a deep dive into Change Management–How do you get your team on board when you need to change direction? On July 10th, we will explore how to Maximize Your Marketing ROI. Other topics will be determined as we move forward. Please feel free to reach out to us to let us know what subjects you would like for us to explore.

Here’s the schedule:

July 10, 2020–2 PM ET/11 AM PT
August 14, 2020–2 PM ET/11 AM PT
