As the saying goes, those who can, do, and those who can’t, teach.
Except that long-standing industry trainer and marketing specialist Sam Ashdown has turned it on its head – by opening her own estate agency.
AshdownJones, in the Lake District, opened in April.
By Ashdown’s own account: “It has been very interesting, mainly because I’ve been telling estate agents what to do and working hands-on with different agents for the past 13 years.
“For the first time, I’ve had the freedom to implement my own marketing strategies and build my own agency using my own ideas.
“A taste of my own medicine, so to speak.”
So – how has she done?
Well, today you have a chance to find out, with Ashdown running some live online training where she is sharing the first 80 days of AshdownJones.
At 2pm this afternoon she will talk about the marketing techniques she used to get from a standing start to having properties on the books; and how she has stood on a few toes and used some aggressive marketing tactics.
“I’m going to be an open book and share both the highs and lows of what have been a very interesting few months,” she says.
The session is free and, knowing Ashdown’s refreshing and lively style, should indeed prove interesting.
