With Christmas only a few days away and New Years right after that, I’ve halted my mailings until January 3rd. However I’m still going through the motions of putting my mail pieces together so they can be ready to be mailed out when the time is right.
Staying active is a benefit on two fronts. First it keeps me active and thinking about real estate investing during this slow down period. I’ve always found that once a break a routine, in this case putting together my mailers, I find it hard to re-motivate myself. It’s very much like how hard it is to push a car when it’s standing still as opposed to when you’ve already got it moving.
On the second front, I’ll have a great big stack of mailers already for me to mail out come January. This sure beats having that stack of “To-Do” items waiting for for me coming out of the break. Counting off the top of my head, I should have roughly 300 letters to send out. Which reminds me, I’ve got to go re-up my subscriptions to the post office so they continue to send me 100 stamps per month.
What else is going on?
For those that don’t know, I just released an update to my SI Lead Manager software (v 184.108.40.206) which added some new features and fixed some bugs that have been reported to me.
note: For those people using a 64 bit operating system like Windows 7 x64, I am still trying to figure out how to modify my code to make it work on your computers. It’s difficult because I don’t have a 64 bit computer of my own.
New Feature: Custom Fields
You now have the ability to add up to 30 custom fields to the program. These fields will act exactly like the standard fields, so you can import into them, modify the values as well as export and mail merge them into your letters. Watch this Tutorial Video that demonstrates this feature…
New Feature: Automatic Update Notification
As you open the program, it will make a quick call to my website to see if there are any new updates that have been released. If there are you will be prompted with a window that gives you information about the new update as well as a link to download it.
The window will show you your Current Version (220.127.116.11) and the new version that is available to download.
As will all updates, it will preserve the current information in your database. It is a good idea to make a copy of the database before executing any updates because you just never know.
New Feature: Importing into and Existing List
In previous versions you could only import leads into a new list. You would then have to then go into the new list and move those leads to an existing list. Now you can select an existing list or create a new list when importing.
New Feature: Not Filtering (i.e. give me everything except)
When filtering leads by a column, it will now allow for NOT notation (! – exclamation point). For example if I have a list of leads and I want to see all the leads with a mailing address not in NJ I can type in ‘!NJ’. Have a look
New Feature: Quick View Info on Calendar
