Of course, I wasn’t a best-selling speaker and author, but I figured this was an important message with a unique perspective, that needed to be shared with home sellers.
I saw a post online from a girl who talked about how she had followed and friended Huff Post editors on Twitter, so I asked my marketing consultant to locate the local lifestyle editor.
A week later she pitched the following ideas…
“With real estate sellers always looking for ways to increase their profits, Tracey McLeod, (Owner of Showhomes Design and Presentation Sells, and the recent Runner Up in the 2016 Real Estate Staging Association® (RESA) Vacant Home Stager of The Year International Award), has written a series of practical tips and tricks real estate sellers can implement to profitably present their homes for sale. Here are two article ideas for you to consider:
Is Your Home Drive Buy or Drive Bye?
When property professionals talk about curb appeal, they are referring to how a buyer will assess the desirability of your home for sale from the street. What they don’t always tell you is that your buyer will make a decision to ‘drive bye’ or ‘drive buy’. And it takes about 7 seconds.
Easy Guide To Prep For Viewing In One Hour
It’s one thing to do all the hard work to get your home ready for photos, but what happens next? This article shares how you can prepare your home for viewing in as little as one hour.
If you think either of these topics will be of interest to your readers I would be happy to send through the article and high res photos for you to review. If you have a different topic in mind, or would like more article suggestions ranging from colour psychology to property styling trends, I would be happy to put you in contact with Tracey directly or provide more information.”
A response came back almost immediately from The Huffington Post Australia,
“Thank you so much for your email.
I am most interested in the ‘Easy Guide To Prep For Viewing In One Hour’. HuffPost Australia does not ordinarily accept already written content for editorial. Would I be able to look at it and see if we can somehow use the advice to write into our own editorial? And has it been pitched elsewhere?
Thank you for thinking of The Huffingon Post Australia.”
The articled had been published on my blog at PresentationSells.com, but, Amanda, my marketing consultant edited it from an originality point of view and got it down to 2% unoriginal. A number of changes and sentence restructures had to be made for this to happen.
One week later, on my birthday, the article “Selling Property: Clever (And Easy) Tips To Making Your Home Look More Appealing” appeared in The Huffington Post Australia. ”
