Constellation's 2016 Customer Conference

Our 2016 Customer Conference is a two-day crash course in software and technology. Building Cities, Creating Connections brings together the two key themes of our conference: advancing your software and data crunching skills, and developing relationships that will challenge your own process to help you build bigger.

Don’t miss our Amazon.com #1 bestselling keynote speaker, Garrison Wynn, who brings over a decade of research from Gallup, Accenture, and Harvard to the study of power and authority. Join Garrison as he reveals the secret that the world’s most influential leaders and companies are hiding from you.

Homebuyer Service After the Sale

Attitude and service after the sale is as critical as it is before it.

I am every salesperson’s worst nightmare. Whether buying a new car or a home, I am constantly looking for the next best thing. Before the ink dries on my contract, I begin eyeing the house around the corner or the car next to me at the stoplight. I’m human. And that means I am prone to being suddenly drawn away from the products I thought were the answers to my problems only minutes earlier. I’m not unique in this—humans are switchers by nature. It behooves salespeople to know this reality and take steps to prevent cancellations.

One of my most basic (and powerful) approaches in business is to copy successful people. And there’s nobody with a better reputation for creating loyal relationships with buyers than Joe Girard, deemed the “Greatest Car Salesman” by The Guinness Book of World Records. Girard sold 1,425 cars in 1973 and 13,001 individual retail units over his 15-year career. According to Girard, though, he never sold a car—he sold himself. The most valuable products his customers walked away with were Joe Girard and his “service, service, service.” Girard’s principles worked out well for him, gaining him endless return customers and referrals.

If you want to keep your buyers from straying with your competitors, take a lesson from Girard. Never stop selling.

Girard says, “The sale begins after the sale.”

Evans Coghill Homes

BUILDER magazine asks Alan Banks, Owner and CMO of Evans Coghill Homes in South Carolina, how and why they chose BuildTopia to manage their homebuilding operations.

Selecting the right construction management software is a crucial but often overlooked step in the home building business. Builders often end up patching together a variety of systems to handle everything from payroll and accounting to scheduling and sales. This ends up creating extra work instead of helping the business to run smoothly.

“Now that the market is improving, we were looking to wrap [our software and processes] up in an end-to-end solution” says Alan.

Q: What should builders keep in mind when setting out to evaluate their software?

A: First off, determine why you want a change. Is it for higher profits, improved customer service, to cut down on administrative costs, or enhance staff communication? Whatever your reason, realize that there is no magic bullet–unless you are willing to write your own software, you have to fit your company’s operational needs into the parameters set by the software company.

Find the right solution by coming up with your list of non-negotiable “must-haves” and shop for those. Don’t get lost in promises that aren’t important to you or your brand. In other words, if online selections are not important to you, then don’t buy a solution because it has that feature and you believe you might use it.
