Sunset Beach, NC and Beyond: The Secret is Out ....

The Secret is Out ....

The Secret is Out ...

Do you know the secret? It has to do with a powerful part of your body. 

This part of your body has 23 muscles and it forms your expressions.

Did you know when you use it you can burn more calories by forming it into a smile?

 

Pretty sure you quessed the secret by now ~ 

The Mouth ~ It's powerful and mighty!

 

 
How do you use your mouth?  
 
Do you tell stories, share news, pass on information or gossip?
 
 
"Did you know people share more than 16,000 words per day and every hour there are more than 100 million conversations about brands?"
 
 
Did you know  a mouth transfers words and does it more effectively than the Internet!!
 
 
Would you believe with the amount of people and content online that only 7 percent is by spread by word of mouth?
 
 
The reason for such a low percent is because offline conversations tend to be more in depth, more prevalent and more impactful. 
 
 Want to spread your message?  
 
Don't tweet, email, text, advertise
 
Use your mouth 
 
Share by way of your mouth, 
 
Make it a word - of - mouth worthy day!!

Thanks for sharing this! You're right, spoken words are so much more effective than the internet.

Frank and Karen,

Did you know that one sex speaks about twice as much during a day than the other? Guess which one.

"Life and death is in the power of the tongue."   The tongue is definitely powerful.  We should all learn how to use it beneficially.

Frank & Karen~ Of course, your post made me smile! Face to face conversation is always an improvement over the online alternaive, but they need to compliment each other!

 

Suggested!

I prefer conversation over the use of technology. Just my opinion.

Posted by Kathy Sheehan, Senior Loan Officer (Bay Equity, LLC 770-634-4021) over 5 years ago

Merline ~ Spread the news "By Word of Mouth"

Donna ~ Smiling is good for your health!!

Kathy ~ Your opinion is valued! Thank you!!

Frank and Karen, Words, they have such power and so few are being used!  Great post!

Posted by Tony & Darcy Cannon, The C Team (Aubrey and Associates Realty) over 5 years ago

Thanks so much Tony & Darcy!! Words and word of mouth is powerful indeed!!

Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

Well said!   Excellent post!

Posted by Li Read, Caring expertise...knowledge for you! (Sea to Sky Premier Properties (Salt Spring)) over 5 years ago

Frank & Karen- well done.  I would rather have a real conversation with someone than go back & forth via email or text. 

Posted by Kathy Streib, Home Stager - Palm Beach County,FL -561-914-6224 (Room Service Home Staging) over 5 years ago

I'd like to see more mouths smiling, Frank and Karen.  Maybe we could market it as a weight-loss plan. That would sell!

Posted by Mike Cooper, Your Winchester, VA Real Estate Sales Pro (Cornerstone Business Group Inc) over 5 years ago

I do hourly exercises for those 23 to feel better about not doing any for the rest lmao

Very nice message here Frank and Karen.  I'm going to go smile at my wife and talk her ear off!!

Posted by Amanda Christiansen, Christiansen Group Realty (Christiansen Group Realty (260)704-0843) over 5 years ago

I'll have to admit, I don't have any problem getting in my 16,000 words a day and then some.

Posted by Tammie White, Broker, Franklin TN Homes for Sale (Franklin Homes Realty LLC) over 5 years ago

I enjoy speaking face to face. It seems that many young people are uncomfortable speaking one on one.  A smile is worth a thousand words!

Posted by Sharon Parisi, Dallas Homes (United Real Estate Dallas ) over 5 years ago

Li ~ Thanks!!

Kathy ~ We totally agree!!

Mike~  Keep smiling and let's work on that weigh loss plan!!

David ~ Hourly on the 23 ..keep it up!!

Carol ~ The spoken word is way more powerful! You see the speaker's expressions!

Kelly ~ Yes, we do. That's what we love about the Rain!

Jared ~ You better be smiling at your wife. She works hard for a living, just like the rest of us!!  Now about talking her ear off ...

Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

Tammie ~ HaHa ..neither do I said "Karen" LOL

Sharon ~ Smiling and talking in person is more fun, don't you think??

What is comment #21?? Yikes, I've been spammed .. Ugh!!

Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

Frank & Karen - I love this.  You are sooooo right.

Debbie ~ Ya think so??

Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

Frank and Karen, you mean actually talk to people?  What a concept!  And  you're right.  It really works.  Well, that actually depends on what comes out of your mouth

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 5 years ago
Pat ~ We do and it works!!
Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

Man you are so right.  I have been getting on the phone and meeting in person more and more.

Posted by Jay & Michelle Lieberman, Creating Calm in the Buying and Selling Chaos (Keller Williams World Class) over 5 years ago

Meeting in person, is the only way.  Sure the technology helps gathering leads, but it's what you do with the leads once you have them.

Posted by Brian Sharkey, SharkeyRE - #SouthFloridaBroker (SharkeyRE LLC) over 5 years ago
Jay & Michelle ~ person to person is the way to go!!
Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

Excellent post and well deserving of the Gold Star.  Social media keeps many of us from communicating by phone or in person.  The spoken word has always worked best for me but I've fallen into some bad habits.

Roger ~ Thanks and we have all been spoiled by modern technology!! We prefer eye contact!!
Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

Frank and Karen-- The art of conversation is not dead.  It is important that we continue to you our mouths.  My mom nicknamed me "big mouth".. I used to hate that!  Now after reading your post, I am so glad to have this nickname.

Posted by Joan Whitebook, Consumer Focused Real Estate Services (BHG The Masiello Group) over 5 years ago

This is especially true in a belly to belly business like real estate.

Posted by Richard Iarossi, Crofton MD Real Estate, Annapolis MD Real Estate (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 5 years ago
Joan ~ I was always getting in trouble for talking in class but now I have learned to listen more and talk less!!
Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago
Rich ~ Hmm, belly to belly??
Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago
The spoken word has an energy all it's own! Great post.

As our business largely depends in trusting relationships, word of mouth is especially powerful; people trust the word of those they are closest to.
Posted by Ralph Gorgoglione, Hawaii and California Real Estate (800) 591-6121 (Maui Life Homes / Metro Life Homes) over 5 years ago

Judi ~ So true, the energy of the spoken word can speak volumes.

Ed ~ haha .. you and your tummy!

Ralph ~ Trust and those we trust is how word of mouth can pass our message.

AWESOME! You certainly earned your gold star with this one!! YOU ROCK!!

Posted by Joni Bailey, Your Huntsville / Lake Livingston Area REALTOR® (Berkshire Hathaway Home Services - Anderson Properties) over 5 years ago

The way we communicate today is very shallow with no or little substance. Meeting an talking with people face to face is far better than anything out on the market. You need to get the feel of the conversation and it is easier face to face.

Posted by Jimmy Faulkner, The Best Of St. Augustine (Florida. Homes Realty & Mortgage) over 5 years ago
The mouth works - in communication - with the eyes ~ facial body language. Difficult to read the face in a text. Missing are 2 important features, the eyes and the words coming from the mouth.

From your title 'the secret is out', I had to open your post to see what it said.  Congratulations on being featured with this article.

Excellent! With so many avenues of communication these days we forget. Nothing is as easy to understand and better to really listen and comprehend than a face-to-face, or mouth-to-ear.
Posted by Matt Kombrink, Your #1 Source For Real Estate (RE/MAX All Pro) over 5 years ago

Everything has much more meaning when it comes directly from the source. Plus it's a nice break from texting, emailing, tweeting, etc.

Posted by Suzanne Otto, Your Montgomery County PA home stager (Six Twenty Designs) over 5 years ago

Matt ~ We are spoiled by technology and forget what a pleasure it is to have a good old face to face conversation!

Suzanne ~ It is a nice break, isn't it!!

Frank & Karen, I love this post. It reminds me of what my father said to me when I went to work for him. He said "son don't let your mouth overload your A.. H...". It was good advice.

Posted by Tom Bailey (Margaret Rudd & Associates Inc.) over 5 years ago
Tom ~ your dad gave you some great advice!
Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

My jaw dropped reading this!  That's plenty of exercise for the day!  Actually, I truly believe word of mouth is the most effective marketing out there.  Some may call it old fashion, but it works the best.

Posted by Gary Frimann, CRS, GRI, REALTOR and Broker (Eagle Ridge Realty / Signature Homes & Estates) over 5 years ago
Gary ~ smile and work those muscles out!!
Posted by Karen Baker, Professional Help with Rapid Responses... (Sunset Beach and Beyond Realty) over 5 years ago

When I was younger, my mouth had a natural smile to it - people at work used to call me "smiley" when I walked by.  As I get older it's turning into a natural frown, and I actually have to force myself to smile ... it's a drag getting older.

Posted by Raymond Denton, Simple Man (Academy Mortgage Corporation) over 5 years ago
Hey Smiley Raymond ~ work those 23 muscles and keep smiling!!
