Do you feel like a pawn in the voicemail chess game? Check – Check Mate? Call – Call Back? Technology has come to our rescue!
SlyDial (www.slydial.com) is a free service for your land or mobile phone that allows you to connect immediately to your recipient’s mobile voice mail without waiting for four to six rings, their outgoing message, the inevitable prompts, blah, blah, blah. SlyDial just lets you go directly to voicemail. Sweet!
Talk about a time saver! Use SlyDial when you need to respond or share a bit of information – but you really don’t have time for a conversation. It’s a tool for discretion and consideration. Ever disturb or distract someone when all you wanted to do was leave a quick voicemail? I hate it when that happens.
So here’s how it works: to use Slydial from a land line or a cellular phone, dial 267-Sly-Dial (267-759-3425) and leave a message for your intended recipient. The service is free to users who don’t mind listening to a little advertising, or you can pay a very modest subscription fee to avoid ads (look for the words “MYslydial Premium”.)
You don’t have to join the premium service to use SlyDial – just enter the 267-759-3425 number on your phone and you’re in business. But if you want to use SlyDial apps for your iPhone (www.apple.com/iphone), BlackBerry (www.BlackBerry.com) and Windows Mobile Smartphones (www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/default.mspx), you need to be a MYslydial Premium subscriber.
Find more information on the website FAQs – http://slydial.com/faq.php. You’ll see the value of this very simple, very convenient communication solution. I’m always looking for ways to save a little time here or there to help me run my a little faster and this is one slick deal!

As a real estate professional, you know that during the holiday season, your business begins to taper off while the stress of your personal life builds up.
Have you done your holiday shopping yet? What about wrapping all the presents? Which parties, company get-togethers, school functions and family gatherings will you attend? And of course, you’ve got to send your holiday cards, calendars and gift items to clients and prospects, as well as your family and friends.
Back to your business… With the phone not ringing quite as much, this is the best time of the year to take on all those administrative tasks you’ve been meaning to do; like working on your 2009 marketing plan, updating your contact database (crucial for holiday cards), revising your listing presentation, updating your buyers’ packet. Are your Listing and Closing checklists up to date? Do you have a “New Client Information” form? Now’s the time to create one! (this is a great way to gather birthdays and email addresses) Or perhaps get to work on that email campaign you’ve been putting off.
The holidays are for family and fun… and the perfect time to delegate those administrative tasks so that you can enjoy the season and all the special occasions. It’s a good time to start working with a Virtual Assistant who can handle all the above-mentioned tasks, plus mailing cards and calendars. If you’ve hesitated in the past, why not prepare for the New Year by calling AnotherME and “Delegate so you can Celebrate!”
Let AnotherME help you put the “Happy” back in “Happy Holidays.”
